Pork Goulash


I need to give huge THANK YOU today to two bloggers. First Dinner By Susan (click for link to blog) for mentioning one of my posts “New Year Blues” (click for link to blog post). I needed to read this post today. Purposefully, was my word and I need to remember that as things are starting…

Slow Cooker Korean Pork Tacos


Getting back into the “real” world after vacation has been tough.  The bitter cold and snow is just making things worse.  I don’t like being cold so I tend to hibernate unless I really have to go out.  I needed to pick up my son at school so I stopped at the grocery store for…

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches


Now that the weather has turned to the bitter cold of January (-15 windchill yesterday) my slow cooker is going to be front and center for dinners.  Yesterday I took a pork roast from the freezer and began to ponder what I could do with it.  I haven’t done a pulled pork sandwich yet so…

Glazed Pork Roast and Mashed Cauliflower


So, I have been trying to take better pictures lately but I don’t have a light box like most bloggers and I am trying to snap pictures as my children are grabbing plates to eat.  Sometimes like this picture they are a bit fuzzy or the lighting in our kitchen is poor. But, you get…

Slow Cooker Schweinbraten (Bavarian Pork Roast)


I think if my children had to choose which ethnic food they would put in their top 10 German food would be somewhere in the top 3.  I think it would be hard for them to choose between Mediterranean, German and Asian foods. When I took a pork roast out of the freezer the other…

Slow Cooker Herbed Pork Loin with Gravy


Last week while my parents were visiting from North Carolina we had an early Christmas celebration complete with tree decorating, cookies and stockings.  My little elves waited until Grandma and Papa went to bed and then they began working.  All the Christmas boxes went from the basement to the upstairs and the tree went together. …

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Tacos: Cook Once, Eat Twice!


Using leftovers from the Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast I made on Tuesday I was able to have dinner on the table in 20 minutes last night!  The pork roast was delicious but letting the leftovers soak overnight in the extra sauce and then heating it up made it even tastier! The recipe for the…

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast: Cook Once, Eat Twice!


I had a beautiful pork roast to cook the other night.  It was a To-Go meal night and I had two meeting to attend before getting everyone in the car to go to dance classes.  I needed something super easy and flavorful.  I found the recipe for a Pork Roast Supper at Muffy Martini.com that…

Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Pork


Back to the slow cooker!  I love recipes that I can just dump some ingredients in my slow cooker in the morning and at dinner time have dinner 90% done before I even walk in the door. A few people have asked about my slow cooker.  I use a 6 qt.  Set it & Forget…

Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Pork Roast


Yes, another slow cooker day for me.  I am so glad I did this too.  Today was a struggle with school day for both of my children.  So, I spent most of the day on the phone, e-mailing and trouble shooting computer issues.  By the time 4:00 pm rolled around and we needed to leave…

Herbed Pork Roast with Glaze


Today is the first day since school let out that we have all been able to sleep in.  No early morning doctor appointments, dentist appointments or getting my daughter to the school for her trip to Washington DC.  Yes, I actually put my daughter on a plane with some of her 8th grade peers for…

Slow Cooker Pork Roast


Pork has been incredibly cheap at the grocery stores lately so my family has been eating plenty of boneless pork chops, pork roasts, pork loins….  You name it we have eaten it.  I am trying a different recipe each and every time we cook it. I had this huge roast in my freezer and wanted…
