I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Pork Loin Roast with Dijon Mustard

Simple, savory and sweet... the mild taste of dijon along with brown sugar and molasses make this pork roast tasty and tender.

2  1/2 lb boneless pork loin
3 medium carrots
2 medium apples, unpeeled
1 medium sweet potato
2 tbsps olive oil
2 tbsps brown sugar
1 tsp herbed salt
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme

3 tbsps dijon
1 tbsp molasses
1/2 cup brown sugar

Place the pork in the center of a greased roasting pan. 
Cut the carrots and sweet potato in long chunks and toss with olive oil, then arrange on either side of the roast.
Season the pork and vegetables with salt, oregano and thyme.

Mix the dijon and molasses together and spread all over the top and sides of the pork.

Then press 1/2 cup brown sugar over top of the meat and roast in a 375 F oven for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes toss apple wedges with 2 tbsps brown sugar and add to the pan.

Return to the oven for an additional 40-45 minutes. Broil 3-4 minutes.

Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.

Serve with rice or potatoes and drizzle on those pan juices!

Serves 6
