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.

Deep Dish Garlic Lover’s Pizza!!!

Whenever we order pizza from our favorite local pizza joint, 9 times out of 10 we order their garlic lover’s pizza. Since that’s the case, back in 2011, I posted my version of the garlic lover’s pizza we love so much!

Today I’m updating the same post with all new photos and text, but the recipe remains unchanged except for the fact that this time I made my favorite deep dish garlic lover’s pizza in a cast iron skillet.

Sweet & Savory Creamy Chicken Salad with Dried Apricots & Macadamia Nuts

I find that a mix of dark and white meat chicken makes the best-tasting chicken salad. Store-bought rotisserie chicken is what I prefer when making a homemade chicken salad recipe.
When using onions in a non-cooked salad, I enjoy a red onion and think it is the sweetest. You can adjust the amount of red onion in the recipe depending on your taste. Chopped shallots may be used in place of the red onion for a slightly milder onion flavor.
