Pork Tenderloin with Creamy Dill Sauce

For Christmas, my dad got me this countertop, hydroponic herb garden. Three months later, I'm overrun with mint and dill. I've been tailoring my recipes over the last two weeks to use up the excess.

I've been going to town on some sweet potatoes lately. Tomorrow is our work Thanksgiving potluck, and guess what I'm bringing? Yep: sweet potatoes. My favorite… Continue reading Roasted Sweet Potato Salad
