Pork Roast with Sweet Kraut

Pork Roast with Sweet Kraut

This delicious dish was shared with me over 30 years ago by the mother of a dear friend. I have tweeked it a bit in those years but after cooking it at least a hundred times, I have never had one person not love it! The long cooking time ensures a melt-in-your-mouth main course. While it is a long cooking time, the prep is, actually, very simple and takes very little time. The sweet, tangy kraut sauce is the perfect combination with the tender pork. Get ready. You’re gonna love this one!

Herbed Zucchini slices with Ricotta Dipping Sauce

Herbed Zucchini slices with Ricotta Dipping Sauce

This recipe came about because I had a large zucchini from my garden and I didn’t want it to go to waste. I love fried breaded zucchini, one of my favorites. I had left over ricotta cheese from a competition 2 days before and I didn’t want to waste it, so…. you guessed it.. my recipe was born! I fried up the zucchini and make a spicy dipping sauce with the ricotta, olive oil and Italian spices. It was gone in no time, so I guess this experiment was a big success. Not all recipes turn out that way, so I was happy to hit a home run with this one!

This is a dish I came up with while trying to come up with something new for a picnic. If you don’t care for ground lamb, you can make this with ground beef. I have even made it with venison, but you will need more spice added.
