These Marinated Pork Sliders are SO GOOD! The pork tenderloin already has so much flavor all you have to do is add spicy slaw or not #ad #RealFlavorRealFast

There are two kinds of people in this world – sliders people and not-sliders people.

I am a sliders girl! I love full-sized meals as much as the next person, but I had a burger for lunch the other day, and I could easily have fallen asleep during the next several hours. It was somewhat comical! Ever since I was a kid, I have absolutely loved sliders. I think it probably originated at all of the Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and Sweet Sixteens I went to in the NJ/NY area. Have you ever had the pleasure? There’s always a kids menu with kid-sized appetizers and meals. I’m talking little hot dogs, little pizzas, and of course, little burgers. Now my pork sliders are big kid/adult food. The marinated pork flavor is SO BIG!

You can dress them up with my spicy slaw, or you can be like half of my family and have lettuce, tomatoes and Dijon mustard. We had a pretty even split. I am sharing my spicy slaw recipe anyway, because I think you can take it too!

Life is busy lately, no doubt. When I thought it was busy before, I was never factoring in what it would be like with two kids in school. Luckily, homework hasn’t started yet but I’m predicting it will get even more hectic around here in October. We need to utilize our favorite 30-minute dinners. Scarlet gets so hungry after track practice that I have to be able to make something filling and fast. That’s where Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork comes in! It’s truly “Real Flavor Real Fast.” Our favorite Walmart will always have an awesome selection. I love Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Cracked Peppercorn Tenderloin.

My kids are sliders people too. And the “What’s for dinner?” question is a plaguing one in my household. So we turn to Marinated Fresh Pork – it’s flavorful and versatile. You don’t need anything else! You also don’t have to look beyond getting great quality meat right in your local Walmart meat department. Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork is 100% pork, and is available in a variety of flavors across Tenderloins, Loin Filets and roasts. Enjoy it grilled, roasted, sautéed, and more!

Like sliders!

In my family we’re pretty evenly split on toasting the sliders buns or not. It’s the same way we’re split on spicy slaw or lettuce and tomato. Of course, you can also do all of the above too! There’s no limits to your sliders. I love mustard!

That said, the amazing pork tenderloin flavor is enough for me! Another great trick is that repurposing the leftovers of this meal helps us save money and time. I take extra slices (medallions) of tenderloin and scramble it into eggs. YUM.

Delicious Fall Snack Mix With Oreo O’s

When is it time for a good fall snack mix?? Anytime!

In truth, it’s probably better in the fall, but I’d take it year-round if I could. The key to good snack/trail mix in this house is the special touches. When I was 7 months pregnant with Scarlet, we went to the bed & breakfast in Maine at which we had met, and celebrated our one year anniversary. I remember staying up late with our Innkeeper friend, and watching her make delicious trail mix blends for her kids, for her grandkids, for the Inn guests, and for us. She had so many special touches, and a unique way of making the snack mixes extra special. I use that method now to make fall snack mix for my family.

I bought an extra special ingredient at Shop-Rite last week and my kids were so happy! Remember Oreo O’s from your childhood? I do too! And my dreams came true to see it in the cereal aisle alongside Honey Maid S’mores. YUM.

It’s just like I remember, but better!! I’m talking chocolatey, crunchy O’s with that OREO® cookie taste you know and love. There’s a rich creme coating to give you a bowlful of cookie milk that tastes GREAT! It’s really good without milk too, as you’ll see with my recipe. This is the perfect tasty fall snack mix and it will make a great back to school snack!

Fall Snack Mix with Oreo O’s:


3 cups Oreo O’s
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup almonds
1 cup pretzels
1 cup candy corn
1/2 cup seeds or dried fruit, or both


1 – Stir pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar into melted butter
2 – Add almonds, cereal, pretzels, candy corn, seeds, etc. to mixture and mix well
3 – Pour onto foil-lined baked sheet and bake at 300 for 10 minutes, but stir halfway through
4 – Remove from oven and let cool
5 – Enjoy!
