You didn't think I'd forget this one, did you?





The Witches’ Kitchen by Autumn Earthsong

For me, the scents of the kitchen when good things are cooking is pure Bliss!  Fall cooking especially.  I think for me, it’s not only that I cook so many recipes using apples, pumpkin and spices etc, but that I have cooked outside all Summer, more than I’ve cooked in and it just makes me happy to have my kitchen so busy again.  This recipe will smell divine..cooking all day long!  Serve with a vegetable or salad and crusty bread!


Apple-Glazed Pork Roast
*slow cooker recipe
3-4 lb pork loin roast
Salt and pepper to taste
4-6 apples, cored and quartered
1/4 cup apple juice
3 TB brown sugar, packed
1 tsp ground ginger

Rub roast with salt and pepper.  Brown briefly under a broiler to remove excess fat; drain well.  Arrange apples in bottom of slow cooker; place roast on top.
Combine remaining ingredients and spoon over roast.
Cover and cook on low setting for 10-12 hours
*Serves 6
** You can slice the pork or shred it to serve it

ENJOY, Autumn

  61. I can't believe that October has passed so fast. Is Halloween/Samhain really tomorrow? Time sure does fly.

    I love all the artwork from the Junior Sirens. ^_^ They are all so creative and talented. It brings back fond memories of me drawing and coloring for Halloween/Samhain.

    Jen, I'm happy that you decided to end our celebrations this year with Thriller! :-)

    Autumn, if you do ever make your own cookbook, remember to let us all know! I'm certain many of us would buy it. I may give the apple-glazed pork roast a go. I'm not a fan of pork but when I visit my parents, I will make it for them.

    Until next year! Even I am certain that I will run into many of you on others blogs or Facebook. At least I hope so.

    Take care everyone. =^_^=
