Honey Balsamic Pork Roast (Slow Cooker)



I'm always, always, always looking for a good slow cooker recipe, but you'd never know it because I rarely use mine. Every time I use it, I think to myself (ok, probably out loud a lot too), "Why don't I use my crock-pot more often?" Probably because it is hard to find a good recipe. Each recipe I've posted on the blog has been great, but many of them are foods I don't want to eat all the time, with the exception of the shredded beef for tacos.

While this isn't something we'll eat on a weekly basis, we've had it twice in as many months, so that's saying something for a slow cooker recipe. It's slightly sweet, very tender, and plenty juicy! It's great over a bed of white rice and a side of roasted veggies!

Honey Balsamic Pork Roast (Slow Cooker)
Ingredients:
2 lbs boneless pork roast, or pork tenderloin
Salt, to taste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/3 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon Honey

Directions:
Season the pork with salt, garlic powder and red pepper flakes and place in the slow cooker.

Mix broth and vinegar together, pouring over pork. Drizzle pork with honey.

Set slow cooker for 4 hours on high, or 6 hours on low.

Once the pork is cooked through, remove with tongs to a bowl, and shred using 2 forks, or the tongs. It should be very tender, practically shredding itself when removed from the crock-pot.

Add 1/2 cup of the remaining sauce and keep warm until ready to serve.

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too! White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling Ingredients: 1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor 1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened 1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed 3 oz. White Chocolate, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla Directions: Beat softened cream cheese and vanilla with mixer until well blended and light (a few minutes). Beat in pudding mix until fully incorporated. Stir in melted white chocolate. Fold in thawed Cool Whip Allow to set in fridge for a few hours, but don't let it get

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it
