Instant Pot Orange Pork Tenderloin

Instant Pot Orange Pork TenderloinThis is my recipe for an Asian-inspired pork tenderloin that you can make in your Instant Pot. Use the cooked juices to make a nice sauce to drizzle over your dish when you're done. This goes great with rice.


Stuffed Cabbage Casserole on plate with corn & potatoes

Stuffed Cabbage CasseroleThis recipe works well if you're in the mood for "stuffed cabbage" but you don't have the whole leaves to roll up. This recipe uses shredded cabbage so having the whole head of cabbage is not even necessary. :) It looks a bit sloppy when it's cut out of the baking dish, sort of like lasagna; it falls apart a bit. It's delicious if you like stuffed cabbage, or cabbage rolls as some call it.


cooked Chicken in Watermelon

Chicken in a WatermelonYou did not read this wrong, it is indeed a chicken cooked inside of a watermelon. This recipe was posted in the New York Times as an April Fool's joke, but I tried it out, with my own adjustments, and it was one of the most spectacularly juicy chickens I'd ever had. No, you can't taste the watermelon, and yes, it is so worth the time to do this. Summertime makes watermelons abundant and cheap, so please give this a try. It's an awesome summer party showstopper.

A jar of dried lentils and brown rice.

Cook Lentils with Brown RiceOrganic brown rice has been a staple for my family all my adult life. In the last few years, I have been enjoying small brown Spanish lentils for soup and stew. Recently I tried adding these lentils to my long grain brown rice before cooking. I found that using 1 part lentils to 4 parts rice was perfect. Not only do they cook in the same pot, it tastes great, and helps complete the protein of my meal.


Protecting Delicate Blooms from Summer Heat - patio umbrella over lilies

Protecting Delicate Blooms from Summer HeatDuring these massive heat waves, don't let your flowers wilt and die. Use a patio umbrella to protect them. My spider lilies were wilted and dying from 103 heat (1st picture bottom left.) I gave them some extra water and used a patio umbrella to protect them and it brought them back to their beauty.
