My twin, Jackie came down for the weekend. We had an awesome time! She requested my Maple-Glazed Pork Roast. I hadn't made it in awhile, so I had kind of forgotten about it. Here is the recipe...
1 pork roast (any kind will do) 2 tsp of crushed garlic salt and pepper
Place in crock pot. Cook on low for 6 hours (or until tender)
Take out of crock pot, place in a roasting pan or glass pan. Mix together:
1/4 maple syrup (the real stuff) 1/4 cup sucanat or brown sugar 1 TB of cornstarch or tapioca flour 2 TBS of honey mustard, or Dijon mustard
Pour over pork roast and bake for another 35 minutes or so until glaze is thick and bubbly. The fat on top will look a little crisp. It's the best pork roast ever! I think Jackie and I ate half of it that night! Yikes!!!
I served baby peas and herbed-roasted new potatoes. We used Coconut oil and it gave it an amazing flavor!
After dinner, my sister spoiled me and deep-cleaned my kitchen with the natural cleaner concentrate that she made me! She is always after me to be a healthier housekeeper. The recipe for the concentrate is most of a gallon of white distilled vinegar, 10 drops of tea tree oil and 10 drops of citrus oil. I was very skeptical as to how it would work. It was amazing! Isn't she the best? That's my sis! She also helped me make 2 gallons of raspberry jam (no-cook, raw). Talk about the healthiest jam in the world for your kids! The last thing she showed me was how to make maple syrup out of my sucanat. It tastes just like the the real thing. I think she might have the recipe on her blog http://www.homesteadwannabes.blogspot.com/
"Show me your way , oh Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long." -Psalm 25:4-5 My Mission for this BLOG is to bring glory to God as I share what He is teaching me as I raise my children for Him.

The noblest calling in the world is that of a mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give. -David O. McKay Motherhood is the one thing in all the world which most truly exemplifies the God-given virtues of creating and sacrficing. Though it carries the woman close to the brink of death, motherhood also leads her into the very realm of the fountians of life and makes her co-partner with the Creator in bestowing upon eternal spirits mortal life. -David O McKay We can't form our children on our own concepts; we must take them and love them as God gives them to us. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward. -Psalm 127:3 The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom -Henry Ward Beecher The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children. -Elaine Heffner People who say they sleep like babies usually don't have them. -Leo J. Burke
To be a mother is a woman's greatest vocation in life. She is a partner with God. No being has a position of such power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations, for to her comes the responsibility and opportunity of molding the nation's citizens. -Spencer W. Kimball
