So one of my goals this summer was try several recipes I had pinned on my Pinterest boards. The first one I tried was a pork loin, and homemade applesauce in the crock pot. So the pork loin was supposed to have pan drippings...mine didn't turn out! It was BAD BAD BAD....not sure what I did wrong but the pork was AWESOME!!! DH wants me to make it again.

Here is the applesauce I made. I like my applesauce tart so I cut the water amount in 1/2 and added 1/2 apple cider vinegar. It made the house smell heavenly. I forgot that my husband doesn't like tart and after he tasted it, he proceeded to add 1 cup of brown sugar (I was flabbergasted) to my sauce! He loved it then, to me it was too sweet. However, I would make it again and not add the apple cider vinegar and just use water.

Earlier this year, DH ordered 2 gallons of homemade Vermont maple syrup. What the heck and I supposed to do with 2 gallons of maple syrup?? Make pancakes! We now have pancake and bacon night every Thursday night. I found a recipe on pinterest for PANCAKE SQUARES I don't have a picture of my pancake squares because DH cut into them before I could take the picture. They were yummy too, however, he told me he preferred his pancakes round and in stacks. So...I won't be using this one again since it calls for the pancakes to be baked like a cake. I prefer these...so much easier than having to put them on the griddle and flipping them.
DH favorite Chinese dish is Sweet and Sour Chicken with fried rice. I pinned this recipe thinking it might turn out. It was very easy, but messy to make. DH loved it and wants this on the cook again list. However, he did tell me NOT to attempt the rice again. I did something wrong and it tasted funky. I thought I followed the recipe right but alas, something happened. It looks pretty though!!!
