It’s Sunday! Who Wants Pancakes?

It’s Sunday, Who wants pancakes?

In our house it’s everyone!

Here’s our favorite pancake recipe . . . they are light, fluffy and delicious. Puffing up like a soufflé, the presentation is beautiful. Instead of flipping pancakes one at a time. This Puff Pancake recipe may be doubled or even tripled. So it serves many people at once. That’s a real time saver!

This is our favorite breakfast to make for our children and their friends. Actually, I should say Jim because he always makes these puff pancakes. And every time, they receive rave reviews!

Sweet And Spicy

Sweet And Spicy

Sweet and Spicy . . . Pork Tenderloin made with the Kuby’s Raspberry Chipotle Spread and pork tenderloin. 

For years, inspired by one of my favorite chefs, Helen Corbitt, I have served her pork tenderloin from Helen Corbitt’s Potluck.

Just recently, as we have been making an attempt at healthier meals, I made a couple of changes: no cream and substituting Kuby’s Raspberry Chipotle Spread for the original currant jam.

The new and improved recipe is sweet and spicy!

-Preparation: 20 Minutes

-Bake: 30 minutes

-Make the sauce: 5 minutes

-Slice and Serve: 5 minutes

Delicious sides for the sweet and spicy pork tenderloin: sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts and wild/long grain rice 

Enjoy!

Raspberry Chipotle Pork Tenderloin

Inspired by Helen Corbitt's recipe, the original recipe calls for currant jelly and cream in the sauce. Recently, I decided to omit the cream and much to my surprise the dish was even better. Also, Kuby's Raspberry Chipotle Spread was substituted for the currant jelly. The flavors compliment the tenderloin and rosemary quite well. This sweet and spicy tenderloin is easy enough for weekday meals. It is a perfect dish for entertaining too.
