About Me

Phoenix, Arizona, United States
The most important thing in my life is my family. I love my dear husband and 4 wonderful children (ages 11 through 18). I am a stay-at-home mom (my dream job!). Some of my favorite things to do include cooking (and eating!), photography, reading, piano, flute, watching my favorite TV shows, swimming, traveling, and most recently...using the rip stick with my kids. I would love to attend culinary school someday & fit my love of photography in with that somehow. My dream vacation is Italy - something I was recently blessed to experience! I'd love to return and see more of that beautiful and DELICIOUS country! My days are usually full of running kids to and from activities - scouts, sports, music and church. Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe, but I absolutely LOVE my crazy life and the people I am lucky enough to share it with!

Walnut-Studded Pork with Cilantro-Orange Marmalade (from Robin Rescues Dinner)

PREP TIME: 15 to 20 minutes • COOK TIME: 25 minutes

In this dish, I stuff walnuts into pork tenderloin before baking for a great nutty flavor.  Serve the pork over rice.

Cooking spray
1 pork tenderloin (about 1 1/4 pounds)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup walnut halves
1/2 cup orange marmalade
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat a shallow roasting pan with cooking spray.

2. Season the pork all over with salt and pepper and put in the prepared pan. Using a sharp paring knife, make several l-inch-Iong slits in the pork and insert a walnut half into each slit, allowing the walnut to peek out slightly.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together the marmalade, cilantro, and vinegar. Brush the mixture all over the pork. Roast the pork for 25 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the center reads 160°F. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

Serves 4
