About This Blog

I enjoy new recipes...especially those that are easy. I always look for two things in the ingredients - a short(er) list and ones that I normally have on hand anyway. So if you are looking for something new to serve...look here!

I can't promise that the recipes will all be easy or healthy, but I do promise to try to add a new one every now and then that I have already tried myself.

Andy makes an awesome Pad Thai.  He just follows the recipe on the back of the "A Taste of Thai" pad thai sauce.  Click HERE for the full recipe.  Below are some pictures of him cooking it.

Mushroom Sauce for Pork

Grill or bake a Hormel Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin (1st choice) or Pork Chops

French Onion Soup
Brown Gravy Mix
Beefy Onion Soup Mix
Soy Sauce
Red Wine

About 30 minutes before the pork is done:

1. Sauté one small produce container of sliced mushrooms in olive oil or butter
2. Open a can of Campbell’s French Onion with Beef Stock
3. Use a fork to puree some of the onions in the can
4. Add 2/3 of the soup to the mushrooms

5. Add a couple of TBSP of McCormick’s Brown Gravy mix (about ½ of packet)
6. Add a couple of TBSP of Lipton Beefy Onion Soup mix (about ½ of packet)
7. Add a splash of Soy Sauce
8. Add a splash of Red wine
9. Add a pinch of Sugar
10. Reduce heat and let sit; stirring frequently - it will thicken!

Make mashed potatoes from scratch or out of a box (we like the Betty Crocker garlic potatoes as a short-cut). Top the pork and potatoes with the sauce and serve with a vegetable.
