Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce
We recently made this recipe for a large party and it was a hit. We used one of the giant pork loin roasts from the grocery store. Weighed about 5.5 lbs. It took about 1 1/2 hours on our bbq rotisserie until about 145 degrees. I seasoned the loin with salt and pepper before rubbing with dijon. I also let it sit over night. For the sauce I followed the recipe but after tasting the sauce it didn't have enough dijon so I added more. Excellent sauce!

Bacon Wrapped Smokies
These were a huge hit at a party recently. How could they not be?? I'm glad I read the reviews before hand. I made them several hours ahead of time. I turned up the oven to 350 since the bacon wasn't crispy as fast. I flipped them halfway through. If you don't they start to burn on the bottom cause of the sugar and fat. After they were done, I removed them with a slotted spoon and added to my slow cooker on low. I added more brown sugar on top and gave them a couple of stirs. I only cooked them for about 3 hours before the party. They probably could have gone 4 hours on low. Next time I'm thinking about adding a 1/4 cup of coca cola to the slow cooker too. Maybe for the Superbowl!

Texas Caviar with Avocado
Made this recently for a BBQ and it was quite a hit. It does make quite a bit. I might halve the recipe next time. I also added the juice of one lime. Seemed like it needed a little citrus flavor.
