I love to bake, cook and entertain. I love trying new recipes and have developed an extensive sometimes exhaustive recipe collection. I am the lazy cook however and look for easy shortcuts when adapting recipes. So no gourmet for me. Easy and delicious is my motto. These are some of my family favorites.

10-Minute Stuffed Pork Loin
Week nights are always hectic getting dinner on the table. In the early years we relied on things like chicken fingers, frozen pizza, and pork chops smothered in mushroom soup (my hubsand loves it, although I find it icky). Anyway in my quest to rely less on commercial products, I came up with the quick recipe. I usually have most of the ingredients on hand as you only need feta cheese, spinach, and roasted red peppers.
1 boneless pork loin - pre-seasoned if the have it. Otherwise season it with Italian seasoning.
1 cube of feta cheese
1 handful of spinach
1 roasted red pepper (I use the jarred) cut in strips
Lay pork on a cutting. Slit it down the middle but not all the way through. I think they call this butterflying. Spread meat as wide as you can. Place a layer of spinach down the middle of the meat. Then sprinkle with feta. Top with strips of pepper.
Step 1 - fill with spinach, cheese and pepper
Once you have filled your pork pull both end of the meat back over. Take your toothpicks and bind your two sizes together.
Bake at 425 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes.
Step 2 - bind two sizes together with toothpicks
Remove from oven. Let sit 5 minutes. Remove toothpicks, Slice and serve.
