Suzy Robertson shares the perfect recipe to feed your whole family.
Mustard-Crusted Pork Roast
1 (4-5 lb.) boneless pork tenderloin roast (or 2 smaller roasts)
½ c. stone-ground (coarse grain) mustard
8 garlic cloves, minced (appx. 4 tsp)
3 Tbls. Olive oil
3 Tbls. Balsamic vinegar
2 Tbls. Fresh rosemary, chopped
1.Rub pork tenderloin with salt & pepper. Place in greased pan.
2.Combine mustard and the next 4 ingredients. Spread evenly over pork loins.
3. Bake at 375 degrees until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. If you have two small roasts it ends up being around 40 minutes. If you have one large roast, it may take around an hour. (If you need the meat to cook quicker, you can cook it at 425 degrees for about 20-25 minutes)
4. Remove from oven when temperature reaches 160 degrees and cover with a tin foil tent to let rest for 10 minutes. You don’t want to slice the meat until it has rested for 10 minutes or else all the juice will come out and dry out your roast immensely.
5. Serve with cranberry chutney & enjoy!!
16 oz. can whole berry cranberry sauce
15 oz. can pear halves or chunks
11 oz. can mandarin oranges, drained
½ c. sugar
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ c. dried fruit mix (craisins, or harvest medley mix of any dried fruit)
Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan; cook uncovered, over medium-low heat for 20-30 minutes or until thickened, stirring often. Remove from heat, serve with meat warm, or cover and chill to serve cold.

4 lbs. sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and cut crosswise into ¼ in. thick slices
3 Tbls. Butter, softened
2 c. heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. black pepper

¾ c. shredded parmesan cheese
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Butter 9 x 13 baking dish and rub with butter. Arrange sliced sweet potatoes in pan overlapping one another.
3. Dallop the top of the sweet potatoes with the softened butter.
