Sweet Potato Biscuit with Pork tenderloin and apple chutney

Sweet Potato Biscuit with Pork tenderloin and apple chutney

Enjoy this delicious pork tenderloin with yummy homemade sweet potato biscuits and top it all with melt in your mouth apple chutney! Talk about a yummy comfort food meal. This will make you want to sit next to a warm fire and read a book after dinner.  I made this a few days ago and it was so simple and soooo delicious smelling. When the rosemary is cooking with the pork tenderloin it filled my house with such a delicious smell. It felt like fall had finally arrived. My house smelled even better when I made the apple chutney to top the pork tenderloin. I think adding a cinnamon stick to most things will only improve circumstances and thankfully the apple chutney recipe calls for one! This recipe does have three parts so you will want to plan ahead. Start with baking the sweet potato. Cover the sweet potato with olive oil, use a fork to put some holes in it and then wrap in foil and bake in the oven until squishy. Make sure you let the sweet potato cool before you mash or else you will get burned! You could bake the sweet potato a day or two ahead of time. I like to bake sweet potato like this often. I’ll bake several and then store them in the fridge and pull them out as needed. I typically like to just eat them as is, warmed up with a little bit of butter. They are packed with so many nutrients and fiber. You can’t go wrong! And what goes better with pork than sweet potato? And even...
Waldorf Salad Recipe

Waldorf Salad Recipe

Easy Waldorf Salad is bursting with fresh fruit in an addictive pineapple yogurt dressing!   The original Waldorf salad recipe might have you asking lots of questions. There is fruit.. with mayonnaise… and a whole lot of different things going on. Today’s recipe is slightly different from the original, yes there is still fruit (and celery! trust me… it’s good!), but it’s my version of the Waldorf salad dressing that makes it updated and oh, so yummy! Greek yogurt, crushed pineapple, honey, and a touch of parsley really sets this salad apart!   Still sounds a little weird? Believe me, I get it! But, once you try this Waldorf salad recipe you will be hooked! It’s basically a fruit salad with a little extra pop! It’s crunchy, creamy, sweet, fresh, and delicious! A mixture of apples, golden raisins, grapes, celery, and walnuts all tossed in a sweet Greek yogurt dressing… I mean that sounds pretty darn good to me! Waldorf Salad Recipe Directions: Dice Gala apples, slice celery, slice grapes, and toast walnuts if needed. Place into a large bowl with golden raisins and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, crushed pineapple with juice, honey, and parsley. Pour dressing on top of salad ingredients and toss to combine. Serve classically in lettuce cups or eat on it’s own!     One of the ingredients that is actually my favorite is probably the one you think is the strangest. The addition of a little chopped flat leaf parsley in the dressing gives the whole salad this super fresh taste that I just can’t describe. Do NOT...

Easy Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip

Easy Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip

Who doesn’t love a creamy, warm spinach and artichoke dip?!?!  This will forever be a party staple… why not make it a little healthier? Healthy does not have to equal bland and flavorless.  Creating something healthy includes healthier substitutes, quality ingredients, and utilize the natural goodness from fruits and veggies.  No fruits in this dip BUT we do throw in a few vegetables creating this savory cheesy easy spinach dip. I’m a huge fan of organic.  Yes, organic has lots of health benefits by avoiding chemicals, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or pesticides.  However, I must admit one of my main motivators for purchasing organic is the FLAVOR.  For me, there is a clear contrast of flavor between organic and non-organic.  Organic tastes like fresh produce plucked from your very own garden.  Although I don’t specifically state organic items on the recipe, I strongly encourage you to purchase organic ingredients to enhance the taste.  You will not regret it! Here are some of the products and ingredients we recommend using to make this recipe deLISH!

Bacon Mac and Cheese

Bacon Mac and Cheese

Make this easy bacon mac and cheese recipe and your family will keep asking for more!  It is seriously so good and so cheesy! As a kid I grew up eating the Kraft Mac and Cheese with the orange powder.  I remember going to my grandma’s house where she would make it for all of us kids and then she would have extra cheese powder to pour on top. I still don’t know where she bought it from, but I admit- I loved it! These days, the boxed mac and cheese doesn’t sit well with me so I make my own delicious four cheese mac and cheese! I have to tell you though, trying to get a sauce that I was happy with took a few attempts, with many of the attempts ending up in the trash. I kept trying to make a roux and then adding in milk and cheese, only to have it turn out grainy and curdle. Even heating everything super slowly to prevent separation of the cheese, I still couldn’t do it. So, instead, I made a cheese sauce that is super easy and tastes super good without the trouble of making a roux. WIN!   All you do is add butter, milk and then the cheese! Heat over low heat until melted, add the seasoning and then pour over the noodles! Easy peasy! I think if the roux had worked it would’ve made a creamier sauce, so I might still try to figure that out and get back to you all, but until then this bacon mac and cheese recipe is delicious as is!...
