Burgundy Pork Tenderloin
Simple to fix, tender, and incredibly flavorful! This recipe is sensational and presents well on the plate. I omitted celery and used honeycrisp apple slices instead. Served with garlic mashed potatoes and wilted spinach.

Mexican Style Shredded Pork
Phenomenal recipe. Like many others, I could not find chipotle sauce to save my life, so I opted to use Adobo chilies in chipotle sauce. They were easily removed at the end of cooking. We enjoyed this recipe "carnita" style: splashed with fresh lime, sprinkled with sea salt and combined with avocado, cilantro and red onion on whole wheat tortillas.

Wild Rice and Asparagus Chicken Breasts
Simple and delicious. I used plain old olive oil in lieu of peanut, and the tip regarding throwing out the tough bottoms of the asparagus was very helpful.
