I'm a lucky mama, with an amazing husband that lets me stay at home with our little boy. I have found that the internet has really helped with everyday life. I wanted to start my own blog to share with other busy women ways to make life just a little easier! From DIY tips to tricks of raising the little ones, from decorating ideas to that Friday night cocktail we deserve. I look forward to sharing & hearing from you!

Sweet & Spicy Pork
It's been so humid here that the thought of the stove, oven or grill just makes me sweat!
I have been trying to utilize my Crock Pot on those hot & sticky summer days.
Recently I have discovered an AWESOME sauce at Costco,
Robert Rothschild Farm Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Sauce
It is great on everything I have tried it on.
Shrimp, chicken, pork......it's all good!
With it being another hot one out there, I decided to bust out the crock pot and experiment!
Pineapples in juice or syrup
2 lb pork tenderloin
Pineapple & Habanero sauce
I started out with a can of pineapple slices in heavy syrup, I would have preferred juice. Oh well
I placed pineapples at the bottom of the pot
Next I added the pork loins, each one was about 1 lb.
Then I poured in the syrup from the pineapple.
I added a small can of pineapple chunks with juice &
a few jalapenos with about a half cup of the juice from the jar of jalapenos.
I cooked the pork for 3 hours on low, then I put it on high for about 2 more hours.
They don't take very long to cook because they were only 1 pound each.
I tasted it without the sauce & it was sweet with the slightest hint of the jalapeno.
Mason ended up eating it with BBQ sauce, so it's kid friendly
before the pineapple & habanero sauce.
Next time I want to spice up the meat while it is cooking.
I'm thinking I need to add fresh jalapeno & definitely use pineapple JUICE.
I really suggest you make this Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Sauce
part of your summer meals, you won't regret it.
Have a great day & hang in there, Friday is almost here!
