Everyone needs a tried-and-true recipe for a meal to serve to company, bring to a family with a newborn baby, or just make for Sunday dinner, knowing that it will be enjoyed by all (who eat meat). This Apple-Mushroom Pork Tenderloin never fails to impress. The first time I made it for my parents, Mom declared it her favorite pork and asked me for the recipe. She’s been making it ever since, and there’s no greater compliment, as far as I’m concerned….
I’ve been making this low-fat Back-to-School Pound Cake for 12 years. I originally came across the recipe (for sour cream pound cake) when I subscribed to Cooking Light magazine. The dessert was such a hit with my kids, I decided it would be a nice treat to look forward to every year when school starts. You know…to ease the pain.
I don’t necessarily make this on the first day of school, but always within the first two weeks, depending on my schedule. And I never announce which day I’ll be making it, since it’s more fun to surprise my family. Of course, my daughter tries (sometimes successfully) to get me to make this more often. She won’t eat any cakes with frosting, so this pound cake is her absolute favorite. It’s an afternoon treat the first day, and then her breakfast for the next few mornings….
