Burgundy Pork Tenderloin
This is an okay recipe for pork tenderloin, but had to make changes. I seasoned as directed, should have rubbed with minced garlic instead of garlic powder. I seared the pork in 1T butter and 1T EVOO to get the nice color. I then sauteed the onions and portabello mushrooms (replaced the celery) with a bit of wine before adding to the pan. The portabello mushrooms added a lot of flavor tol the dish. Thje gravy was just awful. It was way too salty and took away the wine flavor of the sauce. Next time I will leave it out and use cornstarch to thicken the sauce a bit.

Cranberry Hootycreeks
This was my first time doing a cookie in the jar recipe. I decided to test it out before making them as gifts. The cookies came out great! However, just a side note, the jars do NOT get completely filled. You have some options: 1. Add more cranberries, white chocolate and pecans to the jar. I made them without nuts, since I do not know if the recipients have nut allergies. I added extra white chocolate and cranberries...quick fix. 2. If you bake them yourself, like I did, add a couple cookies to the top of the white chocolate. It is a good space filler. 3. Purchase 3/4 liter jars, and the mix will fit perfectly.

Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce
This is a simple and delicious pork recipe, using items I keep on hand. I love raspberry jam, but it just didn't seem like it went with the pork that well. Then again I always make chicken with a raspberry sauce. I also served with with steamed white rice to soak up some of the excess sauce on the plate. I will definitely make it again, but I will try it with other jams.
