  1. Yummy. Yummy. Yummy. I love pork and I love roasted garlic more, and adding balsamic just makes it all better. Another delicious recipe to add to my cookbook. Thanks.
  2. I saw this prepared on Everyday Italian this past weekend, and am so happy you posted it here! I really love this recipe, and the vinaigrette is very versatile. In addition to the pork, we ate it on a salad of greens and my daughter even put it on her baked potato! Yummo!


As a young girl I was always interested in cooking, at 8 I was baking home-made cakes and cookies for my family all from scratch. Growing up that passion was forgotten and it has only been rekindled in the past few years. Now I wake up and can't wait to find new recipes to cook for dinner, and I can't wait to have people over to dine with us. Some people are painters and some musicians, me I make the world a better place with food. It is my passion. I will be starting school in the fall at the culinary art institute going for my bachlor's degree, so wish me luck :) ! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
