Easy Pork Tenderloin to die for.

Buy a package of pork tenderloin. I recommend the packages at Costco.They come with four tenderloins for about $20.00. This amount of pork will easily feed two small families.

Marinade it with Yoshida's sauce (also available at Costco) overnight.

Grill it on the bbq on medium - low heat turning frequently for about 30 min. or until center is fully cooked.

Slice the tenderloin and drizzle a little bit of Mr. Yoshida's sauce over the pork right before serving. We just pour some more sauce into a bowl and microwave it for 15 seconds or so to make it hot and then drizzle it over the pork.

My kids LOVE this dish, and you only need TWO ingredients!

White Chocolate Raspberry Bundt Cake

This is honestly the best cake I have ever tasted. We had it at my niece's baby blessing, and I couldn't stop eating it! Thank you Chris for getting the recipe for us!

Pre-heat oven 350 degrees

Mix white cake mix as directed

Add 1/2 cup applesauce (no cinnamon)

A 1 package of vanilla pudding

Mix batter well: remove 1/3 of the batter and place in separate bowl.

Defrost 1/2 cup (I always use a little more) frozen raspberries and mash them up. Add 1 Tbsp flour and mix. Add berries to 1/3 batter and set aside.

With remaining 2/3 batter add 1/2 cup (I always do more here too) melted white chocolate.

Grease bundt cake pan (I use "Bakers Joy") and then coat bottom of pan with 1/2 of the white chocolate/cake batter mix.

Then add dollops of raspberry/cake batter mix to the chocolate in the pan.

Then add the remaining white chocolate cake/batter mix to the pan.

Make and S pattern through the batter using a skewer or handle of a wooden spoon. Be careful not to touch the bottom of the pan.

Bake 42-45 minutes. Let cool in the pan for a bit, then turn the cake out onto cooling rack. After it is cool, I triple wrap it in saran wrap and pt it in the freezer. I like them frozen for 5-7 days before serving...but it's not necessary.

1 stick softened butter (1/2 cup)
1 brick softened cream cheese (8 oz)
Mix butter and and cream cheese until soft, add 2 tsp vanilla, beat until light and fluffy.

Add 4-5 cups powder sugar, one cup at a time, (I use 4 1/2 cups). Beat until smooth.

Put it in the fridge and let set an hour before frosting "defrosted" cake.
