Someone asked me once if I ever get bored with pork tenderloin. I’ll admit, I do use it a lot. A single tenderloin is just the right size for two people and if it’s a large one, there might even be some leftovers for lunch. It’s incredibly versatile, and its leanness makes it a healthier… Continue reading Jamaican Jerk Pork Tenderloin
The rosemary in my garden enjoyed remarkable success this year. I don’t know if it’s because the summer was so dry, or because rosemary loves the Earth Box, or if it was just dumb luck. Either way, I’ve been having a field day using rosemary in as many recipes as I can. Can’t say I’m looking forward… Continue reading Grilled Rosemary Chicken With Balsamic & Shallots

Summer splendor on a fork! This is the perfect meal for a hot summer day. Fresh, with a delicate balance of flavors. A little smoky from the planks, but not so as to overpower the veggies; a little subtle sweetness from the balsamic, peppery zip from the basil, and mini mouth-explosions from the salt. Great combination… Continue reading Plank Grilled Shrimp With Summer Veggies & Pasta
Wow, is this ever tasty! A great example of how healthy food definitely does NOT need to be boring or taste like sawdust. And you get a pretty big plate of food for under 600 calories! High fiber, low fat; if you’re watching your sodium, you could easily decrease the salt.
