The Star of the Show!!!

Lord Honey, I know a good holiday ham is usually a must at Easter, but I'm askin' ya to give my "Pistachio-Crusted Pork Loin" a try. Make it the star of the show or do a double headliner, and serve both--let your guests indulge in all that is the glory of pork.

It will set your dinner apart from the ordinary, and make the cows and chickens breathe easier for a day.
