the one I did was very easy. Give it a try. Just don't overcook the pork or it'll be tough.
I did a search for pork tenderloin recipes and found a lot. Some of them has fruit glazes though.

Kal is just a brand of stevia - comes in a little jar, with a teensy scoop to measure it.

I use it in the coconut bark and a lot of other recipes where it's not important to have the volume of the splenda, but there are recipes that require the bulk of the splenda to make them work properly.

Just remember that stevia does have a different taste that you may not like in all recipes - some say it tastes a little like licorice.

I really have yet to figure out exactly what the little scoop is supposed to be equivalent to in sweetening power. I think it's the same as a packet of sweetener.

What I have written down on my coconut bark recipe is 1/4 tsp stevia for the 4 Tbsp coconut oil and 1-1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder. I hope I wrote it down right.

MUSHROOM CHICKEN AND SAUSAGE CASSEROLE
3-4 cups diced cooked chicken
1 pound pork sausage (I used Italian Jimmy Dean)
1 stalk celery, chopped fine (I didn't have any, so I used celery salt)
1 tablespoon onion, chopped (I used grn onions and more)
1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced (I used more)
I added a chopped red bell pepper
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
16 ounce bag frozen cauliflower, cooked well and drained
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
Salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
I added minced garlic to the sausage mix.
Paprika to top casserole, optional

Brown the sausage with the celery, onion and mushrooms. Stir the softened cream cheese into the sausage mixture until well blended. Coarsely chop the cooked cauliflower. Mix all ingredients and spread in a greased 9x13" baking dish. If desired, dust the top with paprika. Bake, covered with foil, at 350ş for about 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until hot and bubbly and top is lightly browned, about 10-15 minutes.
Makes 8-12 servings
Can be frozen

I had leftover rotisserie chicken, so picked the bones and used that.
Also, added chopped red bell pepper, chopped parsley and minced garlic to the sausage mixture.
Made this tonight & am in LOVE!!! So yummy!

Fatbrat, the green beans are fresh. But you can do it with frozen. I just blanched them.
Rosemarie, the olive tapenade is supposed to look smoother and almost like a paste but my blender hates me and I wanted to kill it last night. It can't even crush an olive! or parsley for that matter. My DH insists it's the user that has the problem not the blender. LOL Might need a real food processor.

Ohhhh okay heehee. Personal preference. I get it.

vli227, don't you just eat them by themselves? i got a recipe for an olive tapenade and it's really good but you need a food processor.

I love olives, they used to laugh at me when I was a cook, I'd make the olive dressing for Muffalettas and save a small container and use for salad dressing it was awesome!!

Some Fried Snacks Today

Lunch wasn't enough, so I had to come home and eat a little snack. I knew that I had squash, but didn't want to just steam it. Used the oil from deep frying my hot wings the other night and made some chips, which I then seasoned with sprinkles each of parmesan, herb blend, and garlic salt. They were pretty thin, so then I decided to fry up a few pieces of cheese to go along. VOILA, today's afternoon snack.

We had burger salad tonight due to the fact that my child has a ding bat for a mother. I went to the grocery store because it was warm and sunny and I wanted grilled burgers. I got yummy tomatoes, lettuce, angus burgers, cheese, and bacon... Cooked the bacon, got the fresh veggies washed and ready, started the fire and grilled the burgers and then realized I forgot about Buns for him. He actually liked it better this way!! Good thing, I was not going back to the store again!!:blush:

Olive tapenade is good on pork rinds. I put it in sour cream onion dip. On or in omelets. Really good on those L/C pizza crusts.

Yummo on the squash chips and the Bunless burger!

Oh...I cooked up some fried radishes today. I was too lazy to grate them for faux Hash browns. Instead, I sliced and rough chopped a bunch of them up. Chopped up some onions and then poured them in a pan w/canola/salt/pepper. They were nummy. I even had L/C Ketchup w/them.


On a salad plate w/sliced BBQ pork:

Easy Olive Tapenade:
20 pitted Kalamata olives, coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp rinsed, drained, and chopped capers
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp anchovy paste (optional)
Optional: minced garlic and chopped pimientos
Fresh cracked black pepper

Preparation:
Combine Kalamata olives, capers, lemon juice, olive oil, anchovy paste, and pepper. Mix well. Refrigerate and use within two weeks.

It you are too lazy to chop up Kalamata olives just used a can of chopped black olives. I've done that before.
I always kept some small cans in my pantry.
