Sweet Spicy Asian Pork

Trying out new recipes makes me happy. This recipe makes me think back to when the kiddo was little. I think there is a direct correlation to my lack of cooking/blogging then and the lack of free time I had when my mother’s helper was unable to come in two days a week. Well that, and back then our catering company took off like a jet. This recipe for sweet spicy Asian pork will totally make it into my regular rotation.
