Searching for Pork Loin Recipes

I love pork!! I have a few standard recipes, but would love to hear of some new ones. Also, I'm in desperate need of some really good Pork Rib recipes. The kind that make the meat just fall off the bone....

The Ultimate Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies

Combine in a small bowl:
1/2 C All Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt

In a separate bowl (I use a mixer)combine:
3/4 C Unsalted Butter at room temp (sitting outside the fridge for about an hour)
1/2 C Sugar
1 C Light Brown Sugar

Beat Until light and fluffy.
Add 1 egg and 2 tsp. Vanilla Extract. Mix Well.
Add flour mixture. Mix Well.

Stir in 3 C Old Fashioned oats, 1 cup at a time

Stir in 1 C semisweet choc. chips ( I like to use mini choc chips)

Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Be sure to not overbake.

Cool on cookie sheet for about 10 minutes then move to cooling rack. Cover bowl with plastic wrap to keep it from drying out.


I like to double this recipe.

Mix 1 stick of salted butter, room temp with 1 1/2 C powdered sugar (sifted) and 3 T milk.

Put filling between 2 cookies. I like to put in fridge until ready to eat. Enjoy!

This recipe was given to me by my friend, Jennifer Simpson from one of her cookbooks which I'm not sure the title of.

My Recipes

This blog is dedicated to recipes I've found or been given that we've tested in our household. I will not claim to have made up any of these recipes unless I really have. I think the only recipe I made up by myself is my pasta salad. But I hope you will find some of these recipes as tasty as I do.

Hopefully, I'll have pictures to go along with the recipe, but sometimes there won't be. It would be great if you try any of these recipes, to let me know how they turned out and if you did any variation on it.

Anyways, Bon Appetit!!
