Dark Cherry Crisp with Chocolate

Do you ever open up a magazine and want to make everything in it? That’s how I felt about the July/August issue of Midwest Living. I recently whipped up a variation of their Vanilla Orange Cake with Apricots but it was this recipe, this Chocolate Cherry Crisp, that I couldn’t get out of my mind.

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken Roast

Are you like me? When you’re waiting at an office or for an appointment, do you read all the food magazines first? And if there aren’t any, do you read others from the back to front because the recipes are in the back? That’s exactly how I came across this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens* for Stuffed Chicken Roast. I practically drooled over it! I was obsessed – I knew I had to make it!

Spice Rubbed Pork Tenderloin – Rhubarb Cranberry Compote

When spring comes, I can’t wait for Rhubarb. While I grew up eating Rhubarb mostly in things like pies and cobbler’s (the settlers referred to rhubarb as “pie plant”) I also loved Rhubarb sauce. The sauce in Spice Rubbed Pork Tenderloin – Rhubarb Cranberry Compote, though? Definitely not your Grandma’s (or my Grandma’s) Rhubarb Sauce.
