Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I’m sharing my Spinach and Herb Stuffed Pork Tenderloin to really knock the socks off of your Valentine. This is such an easy, yet fancy dish to throw together for a special dinner for two. It doesn’t require much work but the presentation and flavor will have him (or her) thinking you slaved all day in the kitchen. The bacon, spinach and herbs are the perfect complement to the tender white pork, and the caramel searing on the outside takes it over the top!

Mini Corn Dogs. As the pre-game crowd starts to gather, set out a few appetizers to tide them over to kickoff. LBT‘s Kimberly Schlapman’s Mini Corn Dogs with Cilantro Dip recipe yields 20 crowd-pleasing dogs-on-a-stick.

Krystal Keith in the Kitchen: Roasted Vegetable Trio

Krystal Keith in the Kitchen: Roasted Vegetable Trio Recipe

I’m always trying to create side dishes that have a unique twist on a boring old favorite and this is one of my go-to creations. It is colorful, flavorful, tangy, tasty, and it’s just plain pretty to look at. For you health nuts, it hits the spetrum of veggies you need for a “balanced” meal, too. You have your super-greens, your nutrient-rich butternut squash and just the right amount of starchy potatoes. Tonight, skip the dull one-veggie-at-a-time side dish tradition, whip up some roasted chicken or pan-seared fish, and load up on this triple threat of a side dish that will blow your dinner guests away.

Happy New Year!! I hope that y’all had a cozy and festive Christmas and kicked off 2015 in style. I enjoyed some much-needed downtime at the beach with the family, but I’m glad to be back to making music and sharing dishes with you. I’m not usually a fan of New Year’s resolutions, but this year mine was to challenge myself in the kitchen, to introduce new ingredients and make delicious healthy swaps, and just try new things.

So, I’m starting the new year with spaghetti squash, one of my favorite underused vegetables. Ditch the regular pasta for this healthy substitute and you won’t be sorry. Once cooked, this squash turns into strings of “spaghetti,” which you can toss with your favorite pasta dish ingredients, and Voilà!  This is a low-carb lover’s best friend, but if you aren’t dieting or watching what you eat, you’ll still love it…. Yes! It is THAT good.
