Two for One Special....Far too long since my last post!

Summer is a fantastic but very busy time. I have been doing a lot of cooking/ baking (among other things) and just have not found much time to post until this evening.

The two most recent meals I have made are both from The Food You Crave (I am totally loving this book by the way) and both were delicious!

The fist, Fettuccine Bolognese filled my pasta craving perfectly! http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_36705,00.html

It was rich and delicious, full of flavor, yet didn't leave me feeling heavy as most pasta dishes can. I am not really sure what is going on with my appetite lately, but I seem to be wanting pasta all the time! Luckily my brain seems to be winning the battle, but some days the craving is just too much and I have to give in!

The next is Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin with Sesame Stir-Fried Chinese Greens.

We love pork tenderloin and I make it often for quick week-night meals. We both prefer it to be cooked on the grill, we find this cooking method gives the pork the best flavor and texture. This recipe really hit the spot and cooked on the grill it was fantastic! The marinade was very light, not thick and syrupy as many of the store bought Teriyaki sauces are. Great meal for a hot summer day!

*** One more note on pork tenderloin- if you have a Costco membership I highly suggest that you pick them up there and freeze the extras. They are unbelievably reasonable at around $15.00 for 4 tenderloins.
