Broccoli Pesto and Cheese Stuffed Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Broccoli Pesto and Cheese Stuffed Grilled Pork Tenderloin - Delicious, cheesy, melt in your mouth pork tenderloin, with amazing smoky grill roasted cherry tomatoes on the side. From

Big thanks to Sargento®  for sponsoring this post  We love, love, LOVE their cheese! 

I don't know about you, but I watch a TON of Food Network shows. If I am not watching something on Netflix with Kevin, it is pretty much on 24/7. I especially love the competition shows, with Chopped being right at the top of that list.

I like to think that I would be able to pull a dish together in a split second, but when they have things like chicken livers with black licorice? 

Ummmm ya......I would be stumped!

Broccoli Pesto

Broccoli Pesto - Switch up your normal pesto routine by giving this lovely broccoli pesto a try. From

Oh my goodness! Has summer hit you yet?

It is not super hot here, I mean last year at this time it was 20 degrees hotter 

But this year it is muggy as all get out!  I honestly think I would rather it be 90 degrees, than 70-ish with what feels like 100% humidity. Even with the fan on polar vortex, pointed directly at my face, I still wake up in a puddle

Roasting Tomatoes on the Grill

Roasting Tomatoes on the Grill - Give your tomatoes that fire roasted flavor by cooking them on the grill. From

With grill season in high gear, pretty much everything is ending up on the grill. It is fun to be out doors, doesn't heat up the house, and adds a delicious kiss of smoke flavor to everything you cook. A flavor you just can't achieve any other way.

If you have been around here for very long, you know that vegetables, especially tomatoes, were on my, "Not going anywhere near my face" list for most of my life.

Letting Self Doubt Creep In

Letting Self Doubt Creep In - We don't need to be perfect before we can love ourselves! From

As you may have noticed, I haven't been posting as much, or very regularly lately. 

Some of that has been due to health issues. I suffer from something called pernicious anemia, which causes my B12 and iron to drop. Over the past couple of years I have been very bad about keeping up with my levels, and I let them crash to rock bottom. 

The result was debilitating. There were days that just walking up the stairs was painful, and finding enough energy to get out of bed was almost impossible.
