Simple Scones
Tried these for the first time today and they came out wonderful! My friend said they are better than Starbucks :) I used craisins, brushed the top with milk and sprinkled cinnamon and sugar over the top. They took longer to bake but I think that was because I made them thicker. I loved the idea of shredding the butter, I will use that for many more recipes! I didn't read the reviews until after they were in the oven, using a food processor does seem like an easier softer way! Very happy with this recipe and can already see many ways to make it my own.

Banana Crumb Muffins
Great recipe, simple and easy! I added about 3/4 cup of mini chocolate chips and it came out wonderful! It says it makes 10, I got a full dozen regular sized muffins. I will be using this recipe a lot!

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin
I find that pork loin tends to be dry 95% of the time. This recipe produced the BEST pork loin I have ever made! It is tender, moist and so flavorful! I agree with one of the reviewers that if you use a cheap vinegar, you will not get the same result. I used a mid range balsamic and I did not experience any of the preview reviewers complaints of strong pungent odor. I will be making this over and over again!
