So I'm planning on going over to my friends house on Sunday, and he's decided to make this Pork Sirloin that he's had in the freezer. It's 4.5lbs.
Would this make a good roast? I've honestly never heard of a Pork Sirloin until today...so if someone could please tell me the best way to cook it that would be awesome <3
Any tips or advice on the matter would be helpful!
Finally a successful granola recipe...all of my very ownl. I've tried others recipes for granola and it never turns out the way I like. So I tried my own experiment the other day. I combined gluten free oats with agave nectar and slivered almonds. Coating the oats and almonds. I do not measure....I just eye it. I oil a cookie sheet just coating it. I spread the mixture onto the cookie sheet. I put it in a preheated 300 degree oven. I cook for 20 minutes...take it out and stir and respread the mixture. I cook for approximately another 10-15 minutes...just until it browns. I do not cook till it is hard. Just a big of a crunch. It turned out awesome. I've made 3 batches this week and we've all devoured it.
Finally a gluten free granola that I can eat and great on the budget!!!
Another cooking adventure from this past week. My family has enjoyed themselves this week other than going out in the artic blast.
I created a recipe from Elana's Amsterdam's website: elanaspantry.com
I bought ingredients for this recipe only from memory...unfortunately I bought parmesan cheese instead of mozerella. My mistake! I decided we were going to continue as planned and use the parmesan cheese. It turned out to be a cooking lessons for our girls. Our 8 yearold, EJ, dipped the chicken in the eggs and then in the mixture (I have not yet purchased the blanched almond flour). I used rice crumps (because it is what I had on hand). My two little munchkins had a blast dipping and frying chicken.
It was so colorful and smelled soooo gooodddd! I put in on the table and I heard oohhh and aaaahhhssss. It was soooo delicious. My husband raved!!! I even took some to work for dinner. Yum!!!!! Yum!!!!

It seems like forever since my last blog. I was stuck at Panera Bread yesterday for over 4 hours with the brilliant (ok not so brilliant) idea of dowloading my new windows 7. After the first hour...wondering why it was taking sooooo long...I think look at the instructions "oh yeah" instructions. Yikes! I then read where it may take "several hours." I wanted to melt into my shoes like a melting snowman!!!
So needless to say...the work I had planned to work on...is now happening today. So here I am again...this time with a computer that I can actually use! So here's the scoop. I created Elana Amsterdam's awesome creation of Cherries, Chicken and Kale. Yes Kale! You can find a picture and her recipe from her website elanaspantry.com. Check it out. My 8 year old reminded later that I had forgotten to take a picture. You can find a beautiful picture on Elana's site with her recipe. I don't think my pictures would quite as beautiful as hers anyway.
I placed the chicken, kale and cherries on a beautiful serving dish...set it on the table. I thought it looked like a creation for a high class resturant. I thought it looked so inviting. Others at home did not. Then...then...each one took their first bite. I couldn't keep up with cutting chicken for my young ones and even my mother, is very picky...said it was awesome and asked for more.
Thanks Elana for another amazing recipe. This recipe is definately a keeper. It was an easy recipe!!
