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.

Deliciously Easy Italian Sausage Caprese Sandwich

Since we live in the Midwest, my husband and I are all about sausages. He’s partial to Italian sausage, and I’m partial to bratwurst. I can easily eat a sausage without a bun to keep the carb level low, but he’s all about a bread and meat combo.

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!!!

Strawberry, Sun-Dried Tomato, and Basil Salad

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

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