Sweet Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin
This is a keeper for sure. Took some hints from the comments but followed the recipe for the most part. I went straight into the roaster with the roast S&P and bacon..........started it out at 375 while I made the sauce. Used Maple Syrup instead of honey but other than that stuck to the recipe. Poured that over the roast and turned the heat down to 325 and cooked till the thermometer reached 145 basting a few times. Took it out and tented it till the rest of the meal was done. It was very tasty and juicy, the sauce did not dry out on the pan for me........I might try starting it at 400 next time just to crisp up the bacon a little more, but other than that this one is worthy of trying out on my biggest Mom ;)

Broccoli Soup
Having had to re-think my eating habits, I was looking for a broccoli soup recipe that was low in calories. I was skeptical about how it would taste without all the cream and the cheese that's in my favorite recipe from here......but I have to say that this one is not missing on anything.........except the calories. I like my soups a bit chunkier so instead of using a hand blender, I used a pastry cutter to mash it up, and added a dash of worchestershire and a bit more garlic. This one is my favorite now, and I will be using the potatoe as a substitute for a thickener in many other soups from now on.

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers
This recipe took me from "what the heck am I supposed to do with all these peppers??? " to " we need to plant more next year, many more!!! Time consuming but well worth it, may as well do a big batch because they really don't last long.
