Hey Good Lookin'

Watcha got cookin'?
Last night we had a delicious dinner at our house with our friends Beth and Brett.  I wanted to try out some new recipes and I knew they'd forgive me if they got food poinsoning.  Both of the new recipes I tried turned out to be wonderful, so I thought I'd share them with you.
First, we had a brown sugar and balsamic glazed pork loin.
Yummo! We ate scalloped potatoes and green beans with it.
For desert I cooked some lemon burst cookies.  These are some of the easiest cookies to make and they are by far my favorite cookies to eat!
So here's the recipes.  Enjoy!
Brown Sugar & Balsamic Glazed Pork
1 two pound boneless pork loin
1 tsp. ground sage
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 crushed garlic clove
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cups water
2 tbsp. soy sauce
Directions: Combine sage, salt, pepper, and garlic. Rub over roast. Place in slow cooker with 1/2 cup water. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. About 1 hour before roast is done, combine the glaze ingredients in a small sauce pan. Heat and stir until the mixture thickens.  Brush the roast with the glaze 2 or 3 times during the last hour of cooking. Serve the remaining glaze on the side.
Lemon Burst Cookies
1 box lemon cake mix
1 8oz. container of cool whip
1 egg
1/3 cup powdered sugar
Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat cool whip, egg, and cake mix until well blended.  Dough will be thick and sticky. Drop a teaspoonful into a bowl a bowl of powdered sugar and roll to coat. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 11-13 minutes. Let cool.
