Slow Cooker Pork Roast with Sauerkraut and Potatoes

OMG I love sauerkraut!  I always thought I hated this vinegary vegetable, but I do love cabbage, I just never really took into consideration what sauerkraut was.  It wasn't until a visit to the Hofbräuhaus in Las Vegas that I discovered its goodness.  I was thrilled to find this recipe, that and Piggy2 had bought a jar of it and I had no idea what to do with.  I try and use what I have on hand when I'm searching for recipes, and ones for pork and sauerkraut were pretty much the same.   When done, the pork was tender and fell easily into pieces.  I would so make this recipe again, if not to just eat the sides!
Ingredients 6 potatoes, peeled and quartered 1 tablespoon minced garlic salt and pepper to taste 6-1" slices of boneless pork loin roast cut into chunks 1 (32 ounce) jar sauerkraut with liquid
Directions Place the potatoes, garlic, salt, and pepper in a slow cooker; stir to blend

Brandy is a spirit made by distilling grapes to a higher proof than they achieve as wine, usually between 35%-60% alcohol by volume.
The name "Brandy" comes from brandywine, derived from the Dutch "brandewing" which means burnt wine.  When referring to Brandy, it usually denotes grape brandy, if the type is not otherwise stated. 

While most brandies achieve their colour from the addition of caramel colouring (to imitate the ageing effect), some others are aged in wooden casks, which impart a natural taste and colour to the distilled wine.  

Brandy has been a popular drink for hundreds of years and is most often enjoyed as an after-dinner drink.  Some suggest that it should be warmed slightly, usually using a candle or a small flame before drinking it.  Warming the sp…

Nutella stuffed Pastry

What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday.  Sure, it's Superbowl, but what makes it even better?  When you're preparing your appetizer food extravaganza and you can celebrate World Nutella Day.  Today's day started off with these flakey treats. 
Be sure to visit  Ms Adventures in Italy, Bleeding Espresso, and World Nutella Day  for more recipes.
1 package puff pastry, thawed
1/2 cup nutella
2 tbsp. butter, melted
Kosher salt

Roll out the puff pastry on a floured work surface to 1/4 inch thick.
Use a knife to cut the pastry into rectangles.
Place a generous dollop of Nutella at one edge, then roll pastry up tightly.
After one roll add another dollop of Nutella and finish rolling. Brush the tops with melted butter and sprinkle with salt.

Bake at 400ºF for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

NOTE: Be careful when you pull the pastries out of the over, as the Nutella is NUCLEAR HOT!!!
Stay Hungry my friend!
