Growing up in Pennsylvania, you become accustomed to long and dreary winters with snow storms at the beginning of March. Living on a large lake in the snow-belt, the winters are unrelenting, and by the third month of a new year you are begging for spring.
Orange Rosemary Pork Loin with Lemon Cannellini seemed like a perfect dish to welcome daylight savings and hopefully a turn for better weather.
I started with making the marinade which included diced garlic, rosemary and orange zest. After chopping all the ingredients together it forms a paste which I then added to olive oil. This mixture smelled amazingly fresh and sweet.
I marinated the 1lb loin for an hour, then threw it in the oven at 450F for 30 minutes.
I served the pork loin with Lemon Cannellini, which was the perfect citrus balance to the orange zest in the pork.
I was extremely pleased with the way this dish turned out. Pork Loin is generally not my favorite dish, but this turned out exceptionally delicious. It was the perfect ending to another cold and snowy Sunday.

P.S. Are any other food bloggers excited for daylight savings, just for the extra hours for your photography? I know I am.
