Featured Recipe: Herb-Roasted Pork Tenderloin
Pork tenderloin is one of those meat proteins that is almost a universal favorite. And for time-starved cooks, they have the extra-added bonus of being super easy and almost fool-proof for tender delicious results. Today’s recipe for Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin is wonderful with roasted or mashed potatoes, steamed green beans or a simple salad. But it also is special enough to stand as the star among a table laden with nibbles and treats for a small to medium sized gathering.
I love to serve a platter of thinly sliced Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin along with an array of cheeses, fruits, nuts, vegetables, crackers and bread. It is the perfect party menu and creates the ambiance of casual elegance, although the more plebian moniker – “Mom’s grazing menu”- is often what it’s called around my house. Everything can be prepared ahead, so when your guests arrive the grazing, er nibbling, can begin. Enjoy!

What you're saying..
Oh my goodness! How did I miss Kitchen Scoop until today? Have had Desperation Dinners for years -- we spend 6 weeks in Florida every winter and it is the only cookbook I take with me. Brunswick Stew is fabulous and tastes like it cooked for hours! Flake chicken is a favorite and I'm saving the black bean soup recipe forever!
Growing up in eastern NC, I know all about shelling butter beans and field peas and aren't they good in the winter?! Keep the good stuff going and I'll keep reading!
