OK I’m just going to warn you know. Apparently my family was so hungry from smelling what I cooked tonight that they forgot I needed to take a picture before they dove into the pork so you are getting a picture of a half eaten Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloins. LOL.
2 pork tenderloins (I used the Hormel Always Tender tenderloins)
3 cloves of garlic (pressed)
1 cup of water
2 tsps of sage
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of ground black pepper
1/4 cup of balsalmic vinegar
2 tbsp of soy sauce
1 tbsp of corn starch
1 Reynolds slow cooker liner
Place slow cooker liner in bag
Add both tenderloins to bottom of slow cooker side by side (rinse of tenderloins first)
Rub salt, pepper and sage over the top of both tenderloins.
Pour 1/2 cup of water in to the bottom of the slow cooker.
Add the pressed garlic to the bottom as well.
Cover slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours.
Now mix cornstarch,balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and soy sauce in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for at least 1 minute. Whisk and place in microwave for an additional minute to thicken sauce. Pour 1/2 of glaze over tenderloins and cook for an additional 1 to 2 hours.
I use the remaining glaze to pour over the top once the tenderloin is plated.

If you’re like me I am obsessed with Kitchen gadgets. Matter of fact I think I am running out of room in my kitchen LOL. I recently was given the opportunity to try out the new Rollie Egg Master. It’s like a little mini grill, actually they call it a vertical grill. My kids love eggs and now that they are 13 and 16 they are learning to cook. Even though I now they can handle the stove, this mama still gets nervous. The one art they haven’t mastered yet is flipping!
The great thing about the Rollie is you can cook without any butter or fat and there is virtually no mess. You do have to use a non stick cooking spray or you can do what I do and use olive oil in a sprayer. You literally just crack the egg and pour it in and then watch your eggs rise to the top. The inside is non stick which is awesome. I think the only thing you have to get used to is the shape. It comes out in a roll which is actually easier to eat. Of course it doesn’t do just eggs, it actually comes with a booklet of recipes you can do.
The Rollie comes with a cleaning brush, recipe guide, skewers and more.

My local Crest Foods had the McCormick Recipe Inspirations on sale 2/$1 so I decided that I would pick up a few to try. Tonight we are doing Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Potatoes. I love these because all of the ingredients are pre measured and Monday’s are kinda hectic for us so I wanted something easy. Now the recipe on the back of the package calls for an oven recipe but I wanted to see if I could try this in the slow cooker.
2 cups packed brown sugar (can use Splenda Brown Sugar Blend)
1 cup butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 tsp soda
1 Tbs vanilla extract (can also use Amaretto)
8 quarts popped popcorn (I use air popped)
1 cup broken pecan pieces
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Spread popcorn on packing sheet or in roasting pan. Boil first 3 ingredients for 5 minutes, remove from heat. Stir in soda and vanilla (or Amaretto) mixing well; Add pecan pieces. Pour over popcorn; stir well to coat. Bake for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes. Break apart when cool enough to touch.
