Le Creuset

Anyone who knows me might say I have a bit of an intense personality, but it really doesn’t take much to make me happy. As you might have figured out from this blog I am happiest when I’m with my family, traveling, cooking, eating, dancing, participating in theater, and serving. I love to entertain and perform and be social (even better when all three together). 2010 started off with a bang, but this past week was tough with quite a few ups and downs – so I needed a bit of therapy this weekend. Saturday night I went to see A Little Night Music on Broadway (more on that here), but an even better highlight of the day was shopping the 50% off Homegoods sell at Bloomingdales. Rarely do you ever find Le Creuset on sale so addicts don’t pass up the opportunity when it comes along. I very happily added a beautiful turquoise braiser to my collection which already consists of a 5 qt. yellow oval french oven and various stoneware pieces. I absolutely LOVE my Le Creuset and I highly recommend adding anything from their stellar collection to your kitchen.

Today I couldn’t wait to christen my pot so I made Mango Chutney Pork Loin with Sweet Potatoes and Onions. The recipe called for grilling but I roasted it in the oven instead. It turned out so juicy and tender and my roommates gave it 5 stars. The rosemary made the apartment smell divine and it was healthy. Most importantly, it made me VERY happy! Ah, life’s simple pleasures.

    Oh Bitter – I just realized that my comments did not post until after I deleted the post from my inthelights blog.

    What she says is true. As a first-hand eye-witness of the whole masterful process of culinary creativity, I can verify. It was heavenly! I fully support further endeavors in the future! Glad you're my roommate Amber, (and NOT JUST because of the food! :)
