Slow Cooker Peach Glazed Pork Roast

Peach Glazed Pork Roast

This recipe is featured in the 21 Freezer Cooking Recipes from Costco Meal Plan #5. So I happened upon some $1.49/lb pork roast recently. I bought 2 roasts last month...one to use that week I bought them and another for the freezer. I got to talking to the butcher at the store while she was weighing and packaging up the roasts. I told her that I was surprised at the … [Read more...]

Quinoa-with-Pan-Roasted-Bru

So this dish I made with the intention of my husband and I eating for lunch. But it could certainly be a main dish in and of itself, or a delicious side dish with some grilled chicken or steaks. The reason I made this as a "lunch dish," is the Brussels sprouts. My kiddos are fantastic eaters, they love most green vegetables, but 2 out of the 3 of them "draw the line" at … [Read more...]
