Okay girls, I am in desperate need of some new recipes! I need some quick, easy, cheap, and healthy ideas...here are a few new things I've made recently...and I had to include something pumpkin since fall is in the air!
Easy Roasted Pork
2/3 cup light brown sugar
¼ cup cinnamon applesauce (I just used 1 little cup of regular)
1 ½ tsp ginger
2 lbs pork loin roast
Preheat oven to 325.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, applesauce, and ginger.
Place pork in small oven bag. Pour the brown sugar mixture over the roast. Seal the bag. Cut several small slits in the top.
Cook for 1 hour. Enjoy!
I served this with garlic/olive oil couscous and
Creamy Chicken and Broccoli
12 oz bowtie pasta
3 TBSP olive oil
1 lb boneless/skinless chicken cut into thin strips
3 cups broccoli florets
2 small peppers cut into thin strips
1 cup chicken broth
1 container (about 6 oz) of garlic soft spreadable cheese (I used garlic herb cream cheese)
Cook and drain pasta as directed on pkg.
In large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
Add chicken. Cook 3-5 minutes until chicken is cooked and lightly browned.
Remove chicken. Add broccoli, peppers, and broth. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 minutes until broccoli is tender.
Return chicken to skillet. Cook 1 minute longer. Add cheese, then pasta, gently combining until cheese is melted and smooth.

Preheat oven to 350. Grease three 9 x 5 loaf pans.
In a large bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin, oil, water, and eggs. Beat until smooth. Blend in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, salt. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts.
Pour into pans. Bake for 1 hour or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
