I am a newlywed on a budget, just trying to make healthy and inexpensive meals for my husband and I to enjoy. He eats a lot, so cost is a big factor. Though I work 3 jobs, I manage to find time 6 nights a week to cook a full dinner for us both. I am constantly looking for new recipes that are moderately healthy, taste great, and won't break the bank.

On the side, I also own a brownie business called Gersheybars. My passion and love for cooking started when I was just a small child, baking with my mom and grandmother. The brownie recipe has been passed down through 5 generations and I am thrilled to finally have an outlet to share them with everybody else. Friends and family have helped spread the word and made my business as successful as it is today.

Other Brother Dave's Pork Tenderloin

Since we both have brothers named Dave, I commonly refer to Justin's brother as "Other Brother Dave" to avoid confusion. This is his recipe for slow cooked pork tenderloin, and it's quite delicious. He first made it for us at Christmas, and I was shocked to find out just how easy it is to cook. Four ingredients, in the slow cooker, and 7 hours later you've got a full meal on the table. yum! I love the sweetness of the cranberries, and the tang from the mustard. It's a perfect compliment to the pork.

  • 1 16oz can of cranberry jelly
  • 3 T of fresh lemon or orange juice (I prefer orange)
  • 4 T of dijon mustard
  • 3 T of brown sugar
  • 2 pounds pork tenderloins
  1. Mix all ingredients, through brown sugar, to form a sauce. Place pork tenderloins in slow cooker and cover with sauce.
  2. Cook on low for 8-10 hrs, or high 4-5 hrs
  3. Add potatoes and carrots, if desired, about 3 hours into cooking process. I also quartered an onion and threw that in the crockpot for some more flavor.
