I pinned this recipe for Trisha Yearwood’s Slow Cooker Pork Loin from Bo’s Bowl.com a few weeks ago.  I was waiting for the night that someone pulled pork loin from the freezer for dinner.   Last night was the night. Verdict: The pork loin was okay but a bit ordinary.  The gravy is the reason to…

Pork en Croute


I wish I had a better picture of the pork en croute than this one but it all kind of fell apart as soon as I started cutting into it and it really wasn’t that beautiful to begin with. I knew I wanted something different for Thanksgiving dinner this year so I began searching Pinterest…
