I found this recipe in a food magazine awhile back, but I didn’t save it. I created my own recipe out of what I could remember. I must be doing something right, my husband asks for it on a regular basis!
1/2 cup real maple syrup
1/2 cup apple butter
1 Pork Tenderloin, cut into medallions
Mix the glaze well with a wire whisk. Set aside. Cook the medallions in a pan until almost done. Drain any excess water. Drizzle the glaze over the medallions and cook for a few more minutes, until the glaze is boiling. Serve immediately. Drizzle the extra glaze over the medallions for a sweeter taste. Serve with rice and your choice of vegetable.
Now isn’t that a nice simple recipe? Feel free to tweak as you like. Please post to the comments if you try it and let me know what you think!
I’ve been feeling the need to make comfort food lately. The cooler temperatures and shorter days are sure signs that winter is on the way. What better way to feel cozy than a wonderful, warm, homemade bowl of chicken noodle soup. This is my own recipe that I created through trial and error, so you may want to tweak it to fit your own taste. For example, my husband is not a fan of celery or onions, so I leave them out. If it was just me, I’d have not only celery and onions, but I’d throw in mushrooms, scallions and whatever else I had in the fridge! I call this version of chicken noodle soup the simple version.
2 frozen chicken breasts
6 cups chicken broth
1 cup chopped carrots, pre-cooked
2 cups pasta, pre-cooked
Salt, pepper and onion powder, to taste
Place chicken and broth in crock pot and cook on medium for 6-8 hours. Remove the chicken, place in bowl to shred. Return shredded chicken to crock pot. Toss in the carrots and pasta. Cook for another 30-45 minutes. Stir occasionally. You may need to add more hot water, the pasta will soak up a lot of the water once it is added.
Serve soup with rolls or crackers. Enjoy!
Fall is here. Let the baking commence. I found this yummy recipe on Pinterest and had to try it for myself. It IS as good as it looks.
Here is the recipe:
3 cups flour
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup sugar

2 tsp. vanilla
½ cup butter, melted
1 cup butter, softened

2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
2 cups powdered sugar
5 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
– In an electric or stand mixer add the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla.
– Once combined well , slowly stir in the melted butter. Pour into the prepared 9×13 baking pan.
– In a large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon together until well combined and creamy.
– Drop evenly over the batter by spoonfuls and use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake.
– Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or when a toothpick inserted near the center comes out nearly clean.
– In a medium bowl, mix the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla together with a whisk.
– Drizzle evenly over the warm cake. Serve warm or at room temperature.
It’s time for more fall baking! This time I’m using fresh McIntosh apples (my all-time favorite apple) from the local farmer’s market, in these amazing and super-easy Apple Brownies.
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 3 medium apples – peeled, cored and thinly sliced
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×9 inch baking dish.
– In a large bowl, beat together the melted butter, sugar, and egg until fluffy. Fold in the apples.
– In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.
– Stir the flour mixture into the wet mixture until just blended.
– Spread the batter evenly in the prepared baking dish.
– Bake 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Enjoy with some nice Pumpkin Spice coffee!
