Herb Crusted Lamb Chops with Mint Pesto {Easter Feast–Entrée}

by Lauren

Balsamic Blueberry Reduction over Mustard-Crusted Pork Tenderloin

by Chrissy


When there are a bazillion shows on TV,  what are the odds that 3 people would watch the same exact show, at the same exact time, on the same exact day? And then decide to chat about it later that week. It was a sign. The 5 Ingredient Fix show on Food Network had really caught our attention, and you are about to see why.


Yep, that’s why.

Lauren, Pearl and I had all seen this delicious pork … Read more...
