Pork & Polenta

When I was living in Florida I use to dine at a restaurant called Seasons 52 and I religiously ordered the Pork & Polenta dish because I was ADDICTED to the FLAVORS! Here is my easy, tender, succulent pork & polenta at home recreation for you!

Ingredients
Sundried Tomato & Garlic Polenta (pre-cooked polenta)
1/4 tbsp of milk
1/2 Cup of Chicken Broth
Cook on stovetop in a pot whisking until you reach your desired consistency. You may add more liquids if you want it creamier. Then add 1 tbsp of butter and salt & pepper to taste.

Pork
Pork Tenderloin
Create a rub with any spices you choose and put on a plate big enough to lay your tenderloin on to cover all sides with the spice. I used garlic powder, onion powder, salt & Pepper and then covered all sides of the tenderloin. Sear for 2 minutes on each side in a cast iron skillet and finish in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes depending on the temperature (how much pinkness you like) you like your pork. After, removing from the oven allow to sit for 10-15 minutes so the juices can redistribute themselves before slicing.

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
1 Cup of Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup
2 tbsp of Heavy Cream
2 tbsp of Tomato & Basil Feta
Simmer the above ingredients until heated and cheese is melted. Add more cheese or cream if you like a thicker consistency. Then plate your food by placing polenta onto the plate, add pork and drizzle with roasted red pepper sauce.

Banana Nut Pancakes

Today happens to be “National Pancake Day” so I couldn’t help myself when deciding what to make for breakfast! I-hop apparently gives away free pancakes away all day but they are no match for me! Ha, I will make my own ;0) …

Ingredients
2 Cups of Buttermilk
3 Eggs
1 1/2 tsp of Vanilla
2 Cups of All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 tsp of Baking Powder
1 tsp of Baking Soda
1/4 Cup of Sugar
Pinch of Salt
1 Cup of Toasted Pecans
1/2 Stick of Melted Butter
2-3 Ripe Bananas

In a large bowl mix together your buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Now mix your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients mixing until there are no lumps. Toast your pecans in a heated oven for a few minutes. Take the stick of melted butter and 1/2 of the toasted pecans and stir into your pancake batter. Now, mash your bananas in a bowl and fold them into your pancake batter. Cook in a buttered pan on a medium to medium-high heat until golden brown on both sides. Stack them however high you desire, sprinkle with powdered sugar, toasted pecans, and drizzle with syrup! I like to heat my syrup before pouring over it just taste better! You could also make a cream cheese glaze if you really wanted to go NUTS and pile on the calories! YUMMERS!

Turkey Pot Pie

Hope Everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday! There is usually leftovers and you want to keep the company happy and the tummy’s full so I decided to make a Turkey Pot Pie. It’s a great way to use up some of the leftover turkey plus it keeps it interesting instead of eating the same thing over and over again. I mean how many times can you eat turkey and dressing or turkey sandwiches without getting bored? This turkey pot pie is easy and a tradition every year with my family.
Ingredients
2 Cups of Turkey (or cover the bottom of your dish)
1 Medium Onion Chopped
2 Cans of Mixed Veggies (drained)
1 Can of Cream of Chicken
1 Can of Cream of Celery
1/2 Cup of Chicken Broth
Salt & Pepper

Crust Topping
1 Cup of Milk
1/2 Cup of Mayonnaise
1 Cup of Self Rising Flour
Dice your turkey and layer the bottom of your 9 x 13 dish. Chop your onion and layer on top of turkey. Drain Veggies and layer in dish. Mix cream of chicken, cream of celery, and chicken broth in bowl and pour over top of ingredients in dish. Sprinkle with Salt & Pepper. Next, mix milk, mayonnaise, and self rising flour in bowl and pour over top. Place in 350 degree oven and bake for 1 hour or 1 1/2 hours until crust is golden brown. Then enjoy your savory turkey pot pie! Crowd Pleaser 🙂

Grilled Cheese

Ahhhhh the simple pleasures in life! Im sure everyone can appreciate a grilled cheese every now and again, right?! I know its typically a rainy day food with tomato soup but who cares I’m having it today! I lightly buttered the bread, placed deli yellow american cheese onto bread along with deli sliced chicken breast and grilled in my pan! Served with sliced tomatoes 🙂  Sometimes a girl just needs comfort food!
