Featured Recipe: Herb-Roasted Pork Tenderloin
Pork tenderloin is one of those meat proteins that is almost a universal favorite. And for time-starved cooks, they have the extra-added bonus of being super easy and almost fool-proof for tender delicious results. Today’s recipe for Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin is wonderful with roasted or mashed potatoes, steamed green beans or a simple salad. But it also is special enough to stand as the star among a table laden with nibbles and treats for a small to medium sized gathering.
I love to serve a platter of thinly sliced Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin along with an array of cheeses, fruits, nuts, vegetables, crackers and bread. It is the perfect party menu and creates the ambiance of casual elegance, although the more plebian moniker – “Mom’s grazing menu”- is often what it’s called around my house. Everything can be prepared ahead, so when your guests arrive the grazing, er nibbling, can begin. Enjoy!

What you're saying..
I started reading Desperation Dinners along about the time I became a "stay-at-home" mom (what an oxymoron!) and needed both intellectual stimulation and something different - ANYTHING different - for dinner.
In those early days, I cooked strictly by the rule book, no deviations. But over the years, you two have given me the confidence to try rotini instead of penne, to substitute, experiment, become confident. Thank you!!
Honestly - - all three of my DD books are stained, tattered, splattered, and loved. I've given DD as gifts to new moms, to new wives, and to young friends just out of college. Can't think of a more practical, useful present.
I appreciate all the recipes, but really like the bulk-cooking ideas.
Thanks for everything!!
