Someone asked me on Christmas what my favorite non-electric kitchen item was. I really didn’t have to pause to consider my answer. Hands down my personal favorite is the Microplane. I have 5 of them ranging in size and purpose. I have one that I take with me when we stay at the lake for the inevitable Black Bean, corn and red pepper “dip” that I make. One huge bowl of that will last all week for Matt, Jacob and I. I could go on and on as to the many uses of the Microplane and it’s history but I will spare you my kitchen-geek talk.

I probably use one of them every day. That’s no exaggeration. From zesting a lime, grating a block of hard cheese, fresh nutmeg, cinnamon or shaving chocolate the uses go on and on.
A good friend of mine asked me today if I might put a few healthy recipes on here. Her question came at a good time, actually. It’s that time of year when people dust off their Weight Watchers points flip cards and don their running shoes. Gyms all over are packed with people who realize that it is roughly 52 school days until spring break. I mean, why pay that monthly fee for a gym membership that you never use? I type this knowing I joined the “Biggest Loser Challenge” at my place of employment today…and I haven’t been to the gym in a month….
So by request here is one healthy, easy and very tasty recipe.
A Microplane zester/grater would come in handy right about now…
I hope you enjoy this marinated pork recipe!
