Grilled Ginger Tenderloin Roast
I know you’ll love this recipe from my first cookbook called What’s Cooking America. This ginger-flavored pork tenderloin makes for a wonderful taste sensation. You will be surprised how low in calories and fat this pork recipe is!
6th Course – Dessert:
Perfect Creme Brulee
Very few desserts are more delicious to eat and to look at. Translated from the French, this popular dessert means “burnt cream,” referring to the caramelized finish. A classic finale to a meal, creme brulee can be served slightly warm or chilled. This is one of my favorite desserts to serve at my dinner parties.
This course can either be served at your dining table after clearing the dishes or in the living room. A good way to end a meal is with a (decaf) latte. Learn how to make a perfect cup of Coffee.

Picnic Safety Tips – There is nothing more American than the picnic. Picnics can take on many forms, such as the community picnic, friends and neighbors, tailgate parties, or ball games. There is also one sure thing at every picnic-lots of good food. The important point is to have safe and healthy food, not food that can cause food borne illness. Always prepare and store food properly.
Summer Safety Tips – Summer is the time for barbecues and picnics. The biggest party crasher at summer picnic and buffets is food borne bacteria. You can not see them and you can not taste them, but you sure can feel them if illness occurs hours or days later.
