Homemade Turkey Consommé

Consommé is one of Caitlin’s all time favorite comfort foods and I am wiling to guess that this homemade turkey consommé might just become one of your new favorite homemade comfort foods. Serve this turkey consommé in a shot glass as an appetizer before a delicious fall inspired meal of Roasted Chicken with Apple Butter, Sweet Potato Dauphinois(see image below), and an Apple Tarte Tatin to complete the meal.

Crusted Pork Tenderloin

When I am creating new recipes, considering texture is an important part of the process.  This, even when it comes to creating easy pork tenderloin recipes.  As far as I’m concerned there is just nothing better than just a little crunch at the beginning of every bite.  More on Crusted Pork Tenderloin »

Stuffed Cabbage

good ol’ fashioned comfort food I learned to make these for a friend who was interested in a Polish gentleman.  I will never know how authentically Polish this recipe is (since I myself have not one Polish bone in my body), but I know I’ve enjoyed it.  You will too!  Pull it out any given Tuesday, but also on New Year’s Day for a good luck meal (cabbage signifies cash). For another good luck inspired meal try Hopping John Stuffed Pork Tenderloin. More on Stuffed Cabbage »

Hopping John Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

layers of flavor all rolled up You know what a fan I am of pork tenderloin.  Because of it’s light taste, it easily picks up the flavor of whatever you use to decorate it.  With this in mind, I just couldn’t wait to stuff it with the layer upon layer of flavor in traditional southern Hopping John.  The result was delicious, of course.  But it sure is beautiful on a plate as well.  Enjoy. If you are a big fan of pork tenderloin like I am be sure to check out my other recipes, Mustard-Crusted Pork Tenderloin, Tangy Pork, and Pesto Pork Tenderloin.
