Strawberry Basil Salad

I’ve always been a salad girl, but it’s only been the past few years that I’ve started to enjoy fruit included with my veggie salads.

Now that I’ve realized how much I love the sweetness fruit can bring to a savory salad, I find I’m hard pressed to enjoy a strictly vegetable salad ever since.

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.

Cheesy French Onion Chicken Recipe

When it comes to French Onion soup, I can’t decide what my favorite part about the soup is. Whether it’s the deep rich broth, the abundance of sweet caramelized onions, the hearty slice of bread crouton that’s soaked in the broth and floats the perfectly browned and melted cheese.

Since I love every part of the soup, I’ve incorporated every part into my recipe of French Onion Chicken, including the bread crouton that sits atop the abundance of sweet caramelized onions, and acts as a platform for the moist and meaty chicken thigh and the melted cheese! Be still my heart!!!
