judy_clarkJudy Clark enjoys sharing recipes and she’s submitted a few to Simple and Delicious magazine from time to time. Until recently, however, she never saw one in print.

Judy, who serves as a nurse practitioner at Dr. William Gray’s office in Morenci, sent in a recipe she called “Savory Mushroom and Herb Roast Pork” about a year and a half ago. She had mostly forgotten about it until a telephone call came in May.

“I was rather shocked,” said the Addison resident, especially when she learned that her recipe would be a featured one and include her photograph. “It was a whole page with comments.”

The recipe isn’t one that Judy created, but she has altered it.

“It was a skillet recipe that had been given to my mom long ago,” Judy said.

She enjoys experimenting and turned a skillet meal into a slow-cooker dinner. She also tried out some different spices to accompany the pork roast, carrots and corn.

To see the recipe, you’ll have to get a copy of the August/September edition of Simple and Delicious. When her recipe was chosen for publication, she gave up the rights to it, Judy explained.

Thousands of recipes are submitted over the course of the year, so she was really pleased to have hers selected for the national publication.

“The fact that my friend saw it at a Winn-Dixie in Florida was neat,” she said.
