Roast Pork Tenderloin with Apples

Recipes from the past:

This recipe is tasty (two thumbs up from both kids), and pretty quick.  Using a smaller cut like pork tenderloin keeps the cooking time down, and the roasted apples and onions reduce to a nice sauce for serving.

Mushroom Fennel Stuffed Pork Loin

Recipes posted a year ago:

Quite a few of the recipes we have posted started out as something we have seen in a magazine or an old cookbook and thought, “How about adding a little of this, and what about substituting this for that…”  A lot of them, however, start out as little more than an inspiration.  It might come while staring in the freezer at the variety of cuts of meat, all wrapped in nondescript white butcher paper with black marker labels like “elk roast” or “pork loin,” and thinking about how to work one of those into something new, or it might come while leaning over the open fridge door staring at the shelf full of fresh CSA veggies thinking about how to use some of them other than simply chopping them up in a salad (not that there is anything wrong with that).

A few of these “inspiration” dishes don’t turn out as well as we hope – we quietly consume them at the dinner table, but almost immediately delete the photos off the camera and toss the notes in the recycle bin (unless we really think there might be a chance for redemption with a few modifications).  Others come out so much better than we could have ever imagined, and leave us excited to share them on our site with everyone else.  This recipe is one of those that we could not wait to share.  So don’t be frightened by the number of steps below – there isn’t much effort to it and the results are certainly worth it.

Butternut Coconut Pork Curry

Recipes posted a year ago:

Another Sunday just passed – this one happened to be my only day off for the week, and was accompanied by decent weather (as in not raining all day).  Since it was my only opportunity in the past six days (and likely the next six days as well) to get anything done outside, I knew that I needed to take advantage of every minute I could.  At the same time, we had Karen’s parents coming over for dinner – so I needed to put something together that I could get started in the morning and forget about until right before it was time to eat.  In other words, it was a perfect day for the slow cooker!

Fennel Rhubarb Pork Roast

Recipes posted a year ago:

Last weekend, with spring slowly trying to make an appearance around here, I had rhubarb on my mind.  And since we had our friends Sonya and Chris coming up for dinner, it was a perfect time to try something entirely new (we knew they’d be game for it).  We had a pork roast thawing, and the tangy character of rhubarb was a perfect pairing for the roast – along with a few other additions.
