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.

Savory Pumpkin Sage Biscuits #PumpkinWeek

I’m sharing this recipe for Savory Pumpkin Sage Biscuits in honor of #PumpkinWeek 2017. I’ve paired the pumpkin with the subtle woodsy flavor of fresh sage, but feel free to substitute a different fresh herb or even dried herbs from your pantry. However, If you choose to use a dried herb, cut back on the quantity you use as the flavor of dried herbs are considerably stronger than their fresh counterparts.

Crave-Worthy French Onion Stuffed Shells

Imagine if you will, deeply caramelized onions (cooked in a slow cooker) with red wine, butter, beef broth and thyme until they’re sweet and pungent. The onions are stuffed into large, perfectly cooked pasta shells until they’re practically overflowing. The stuffed shells are then layered on top of toasted, garlicky French bread, topped with an abundant mixture of grated Swiss, and Gruyere cheeses, and popped into the oven, so the cheese melts into a blanket of golden, gooey, goodness…Be still my French onion loving heart!
