Holidays, Ornaments, and Food, Oh My!

This ornament above is the next in the custom order I mentioned yesterday. Unfortunately, I didn't check the photos before shipping it out and they didn't turn out right. Wish I would have checked them first so I could have retaken them. This one has a paisley design with one heart.

I'll be showing the third one in tomorrow's post.

Last night for dinner I made a Cranberry Glazed Pork Roast in my slow cooker and it was fabulous! I didn't get a picture of it before it was attacked, but I will share the recipe with you so you can give it a try. :) My daughter, who is not very fond of Cranberries, absolutely LOVED it!

  • 1 (16 oz.) can jellied cranberry sauce
  • 1 (16 oz.) can whole cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 C. white sugar
  • 1/4 C. Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 C. cranberry juice
  • 1 t. mustard powder
  • 1/2 t. Rosemary
  • 1/4 t. ground cloves
  • 4-5 lb. Boneless Pork Blade Roast (or other cut)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • salt to taste

  1. Combine cranberry sauces with a fork, mix well. Stir in sugar, cranberry juice, mustard, Rosemary, and cloves.
  2. Place pork roast in slow cooker. Pour cranberry sauce mixture over the roast.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 6 to 8 hours.
  4. Using a ladle, scoop out about 2 Cups of the liquid and put into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Blend cornstarch and cold water and add gradually into boiling liquid stirring constantly. Continue cooking(and stirring constantly), until mixture thickens. Add salt to taste. Serve with the roast.
Enjoy! I'm going to use this same glaze on our Ham for Christmas this year too.

New things about to come out of my studio! I'm so excited! I've been working on a couple of secret projects lately and can't wait to share them with all of you! I will be announcing their unveiling here in the blog, so be sure to check back here.

For those of you waiting to see before and after pics of my studio organziation...It is still unorganized, but it is getting there. While I was working on it, the ideas started to flow in my head which has led to the secret projects I mentioned above. You know how it is, you get a great idea and before you know it, you are happily working on it every chance you get. :)

Right now, I must get to the kitchen and start the preparations for tomorrow's feast! My Son and his family will be joining us tomorrow for a day of fun and food!

'Till later...Have a great day!
