Orange, Mustard, and Sage Roasted Pork Tenderloin

A pork tenderloin that has been coated in a honey, mustard, orange, and garlic glaze, pressed with fresh sage, and roasted on a bed of fresh orange slices.  Tangy, sweet, and slightly spicy this is one of the easiest roasts I have ever made.  If you are a novice roaster or just don’t feel like…

Apple Quick-Bread

A honey infused apple quick-bread with a sour cream base, I set out to bake a simple apple quick-bread that was slightly more savory then an apple cake (I’m thinking breakfast) and not heavily spiced.  One of my latest food revelations is that heavily spiced apple cakes/breads muffle the bright, saccharinely tart flavors of a…

Honey Pickles

I felt like I needed to get this post in before the official start of Fall, which happens to be tomorrow, although it still doesn’t feel like Fall.  It’s hard to believe that I turned on my AC last Monday.  Crazy.  Total Boloney.  At this time of year I’m usually contemplating on how long I…

Radishes with Raw Honey

I planted radishes in my garden for the first time this year, and they have done extremely well.  Now, I am not a big radish lover, as a kid I was would always make the point of picking them off of my salads.  Actually, come to think of it, I still do that as an…

Pickled Sweet Corn Salad

Lightly pickled sweet corn in a honey dijon vinaigrette with small cubes of salty feta, sweet bell peppers, and freshly picked chives.  A simple summer salad, that would probably qualify more as a starchy side then an actual salad, but is still a lovely accompaniment to any summer meal.  A lighter alternative to the more…

White Bread

All week I have been fielding a craving for my Grandma’s homemade strawberry jam on her white homemade bread.  I have been chalking it up to an ongoing craving for Spring, which has still been eluding us in these snowy northern environs.  I generally do not make white bread, if fact, I can not remember…

Irish Soda Bread

It wouldn’t be an American St Patrick’s Day without some Irish soda bread.  This year I get to forgo making the corned beef and cabbage, something that I am secretly excited about, I can’t stand boiled cabbage, because my lovely Aunt Michelle has invited us over for the occasion, sparing me the task, and making…

Lemon Ginger Miniture Biscotti

I tried out a new biscotti recipe that incorporated spelt flour alongside the usual white flour.  I would have never attempted this flour combination for biscotti, if I hadn’t come across this other recipe from a supposedly reputable source, due to the hard consistency of regular biscotti.  As it was, I should have trusted my…
