This is inspired by Olive Garden, the franchise restaurant that we always have dinner if we go down to the States to shop.  My husband liked their spicy sausage soup a lot, thus I searched online and found a few recipes about Italian soup. This is one of them:

Potato Sausage Soup Similar to Olive Garden’s Toscana Soup Recipe.

It seems like it’s common they add Kale in this soup.  I like the creaminess of my clam chowder recipe, thus I’m replacing clams with Italian sausage and come up with this Tuscano soup.  This recipe will be enough for 6 – 8 people.

This recipe adapted from Food Network, with just a few changes to the original: used butter instead of olive oil, preheating oven to 375 degrees instead of 350 to lock the juice of the chicken, threw in extra ingredients as usual. Its method of pan-frying the chicken first then roasting it in the oven made the chicken so tender and juicy. It’s one of most tender chicken breast ever made at my home.

I always like to buy pork tenderloins.  I did them with apples, cranberries, even with spinach and puff pastry, yet still cannot find the best recipe to cook them extremely tender and juicy.

I saw pretty good review about this recipe:

Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Sauce Recipe – Allrecipes.com.

I tried it with quite a lot of adjustments,  afterall I would give the recipe “70%”.   Guess I have to keep hunting for my most favorite (or my dear friends, can you share your most favorite tenderloin recipe with me?!)

I never waste: thus I’m using leftover marinade to make a side dish of mushrooms.  Just pop everything in the oven, and dinner’s done!

This is a healthy rice pilaf.  I like to use 2:1 portion of brown rice to wild rice.  You can mix in red grain rice too, but I decided not to play with too many rice colors that day.  As an advocate of conserving energy, I always like to have my rice cooker cooking an extra side dish using the top steamer rack.  I used the leftover black cod marinade (see my black cod in hoisin sauce recipe), mix with sliced fresh shitake mushrooms (add a little bit of sesame oil and 1 clove of minced garlic would be good).  Then you have 4 dishes (fish from oven, shitake and mushroom pilaf  from rice cooker, baby bak choy prepared on stovetop in 5 minutes) all hot and ready at the same time!  Planning and timing is the key.
