Old-Fashioned Strawberry Rhubarb Bundt Cake

The batter for this cake is thick….really thick, but that’s what enables the fruit to stay wonderfully suspended throughout the entire cake, and not sink to the bottom (make that the top) of the cake, when the cake is inverted.

In almost each and every forkful you take of this Old-Fashioned Strawberry Rhubarb Bundt Cake you’ll have a plump piece of strawberry or rhubarb, which is a very, very good thing!

Best Easy Homemade Orange Curd

I’ve been craving oranges – a lot! I don’t know if it’s a need to replenish vitamin C in my body, or if it’s because I’m craving warmer temperatures during this arctic blast we’ve been experiencing here in the Midwest. 

Whatever the reason, this easy to make thick and tangy homemade orange curd cures my craving for oranges and satisfies my sweet tooth in an utterly delicious, and completely versatile, way!

Christmas Pork Roast with Cranberry Relish Glaze

One of my favorite ways to ensure tenderness when it comes to cooking a protein (almost any type), is to first give the meat a little splash of balsamic vinegar, and then let it sit for about 20 minutes before cooking.

That’s my trick, and it’s one that lends a tenderness (and slight sweetness) to this recipe for Christmas Pork Roast with Cranberry Relish Glaze.
