In a large pot of salted, boiling water, cook pasta according to package directions.
To make the creamy alfredo sauce, melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add mushrooms. Whisk in flour about 1 minute more.
Slowly add in chicken broth, thyme and basil. Whisk constantly until well blended, about 2 minutes. Stir in half and half and parmesan until thickened, about 2 minutes. Add more half and half if the sauce is too thick. Season with salt and pepper.
Stir in pasta, ham, bacon and peas. Toss gently until well combined. Garnish with parsley.
Warm jam in a medium pot over medium heat. Add the cranberries and heat until well combined.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
Lightly butter one side of each slice of bread. Place each buttered slice on the baking sheet, butter side up. Place in the preheated oven for 3-4 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Remove from the oven and flip bread slices.
On each bread slice, top with a smear of brie. Spoon about 1 Tbsp. of bacon and cranberry jam onto each crostini.
Place in the oven again for 4-5 minutes, or until brie is melted. Enjoy!
Preheat 425 degrees F. Place the sliced apples, onions, and part of the fresh herbs in the bottom of a roasting pan. Place the pork on top, fat side up. Pour the balsamic vinegar evenly over the pork. Rest for 20 minutes before placing in the oven.
Season and/or rub the pork with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Top the pork with additional rosemary and thyme sprigs. Roast on the center rack for 60 minutes.
Pour the cranberry sauce over the pork after roasting for 1 hour. Return to the oven and roast approximately 30 more minutes (or until the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees).
Remove from oven and wrap with aluminium foil. Let rest, covered, for 10 minutes before serving. Add garnishes. Enjoy!
