    Question Good recipe search

    Anyone have a sure fire recipe combining pork and apples (I'm thinking a pork tenderloin and have found a few online... but willing to hear what's worked for actual people not a recipe book).

    Please and thank you!

    I've got a good one for ham steak with apples, but not for pork loin.

    When I get back home, I'll put it here.

    Doris has great recipes. I remember her holiday fruitcake.

    I think if you just figure out the time per pound needed to cook the pork loin, you could devise your own system. It seems logical to add the apples in a bit later (so they don't completely dry out). Prunes are compatible with both pork and apples and might lend something to the flavor. You could baste with a mixture of vegetable or chicken stock and unsweetened apple juice at some point during the process, maybe. Doris will have much clearer information! What kind of apples are you using? Cooking ones or eating ones like Golden Delicious?

    I'm sure you'll make it taste dee-lish.

    I tend to be more experimental once I know what the basic dealbreakers are. I gave up meat this year, but when I used to do roasts, the one dealbreaker, especially with pork, was to get the correct internal temperature. When that's sorted out, you can add other ingredients with impunity. Baked goods are a different kettle of fish, pun not intended. You can't vary ingredients because of the way they all react chemically against one another. Unless you're my two Bulgarian friends. They bake the old-fashioned way, literally with a handful of flour and a pinch of baking powder, and liquid poured with a teacup. And it turns out scrumptious! I'm only that Zen with writing or sewing.

    It tastes like a finer consistency cornmeal mush with a mild cheesy taste due to the Parmesan cheese.

    Or very very good cheese grits only better.

    Buy some, make it, see whether you like it. There'll be enough left for your dinner, if you do like it. (I'm very fond of it, particularly with northern Italian dishes)

    I LOVE polenta! It is one of my go-to grains.

    Also fun to make is to let the potenta cool and make polenta pizza. Yum yum!

    Yes it is! It's cornmeal, so no gluten.

    How about omelets? They can be delicious as a main course with the right side dishes, and you can add different fillings for different people. Or something like crepes, which I suspect can be made with a gluten-free flour more tastily than something where the food actually has to bind together.

    I know you did pasta last time, but what about spinach fettucini with pesto to look like grass, because it would all be green? After all, Bambi eats grass

    You could have an "Edible Arrangements" fruit flowers centerpiece (bought or make your own).

    Mom just said no to pesto... she's being difficult this time around lol

    I've got a few ideas - http://pinterest.com/tonichelleak/di...-dinner-night/ - but nothing really "main dish"
