Pork Roast with Apples

Recipe: Pork Roast with Apples

Summary: This recipe comes from the kitchen of Helen Butler. She is an awesome cook, a quilter and a sweet mom. One time she and I went on a "road trip" to a really cool quilt shop. On the way, she kept asking me questions like, "Do you let your kids pull all the cushions off the couch and jump on them?", "No." "Do you let your kids build forts with sheets and furniture?", "No." "Karma, aren't you concerned about stifling their creativity?", *snort* "NO." Poor, sweet Helen. I've lost track of her. Does anyone know where she is or how she's doing?
