Chocolate Cinnamon Cake Roll

I love making cake rolls. They’re so fun! This is a great cake recipe to have on half during the holidays. The cinnamon isn’t overpowering but gives it a lovely fall, fireside feeling. Cake rolls are not as hard as you might think. You just bake a sponge cake in a jelly roll pan, flip it…

Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Cookies

I don’t have the best photos of this delightful cookie but what can I say? I write about my real life here on The Rose Table and sometimes that means taking a few iPhone photos on the fly, packing up cookies on a picnic, and totally forgetting to take beautifully staged photos. That won’t deter…

Pork Tenderloin

Garlic, ginger, and rosemary make this easy pork tenderloin sing! I really ought to make pork tenderloin more often. It’s easy, inexpensive, requires little work, and feeds a crowd.

Mustard Sauce

The French know what’t they’re doing when it comes to sauces! This very French mustard cream sauce is a go-to of mine for any and every pork dish. I often deglaze a pan with it when making pork chops – it’s even more delicious with the brown bits from searing pork! I whipped this up…
