Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Apricot Glaze

Let’s talk pork! It’s finally grilling season here in cold country. I realize some of you can grill year round, but my “Grill Master” is not fond of standing in 6 inches of snow with a wind chill of 16! Not even for me! (Sad, I know!) Thankfully those cold days are behind us (fingers crossed) and we are warming up. That means it’s time to break out some of my favorite grilling recipes! I’m starting with one of my “Nests” all time favorites! This is hands down, one of the MOST AMAZING pork tenderloin recipes you will ever find! (Trust me! Pretty please!)

Chicken Broccoli Casserole

I was contemplating what to post for my very first main dish recipe here at “Norine’s Nest”? Immediately I thought of the dish that captured my hubs heart long before I did! (Truth be told, I’m pretty sure this sealed the deal of heart capturing! Yeah, it’s THAT good!) Chicken broccoli casserole is just one of those super wonderful comfort foods. Right up there with mac-n-cheese (The real kind!) and fresh hot homemade bread with melted butter! The flavors in this dish are out of this world! My mom made this casserole for our family as I was growing up, and I made it for my birds. I still make it! Even with all the little birds gone!
