To visit Paula Dean's Website go to : Another wonderful Food Network chef that makes food dishes worth falling for. I love Paula Dean and I wanted to put her on my blog as a spotlight chef this month in hopes to demonstrate her great abilities to create wonderful delicious meals and more. One of her great creations is her Pork Crown Roast which I have enjoyed many times. Here is her easy recipe for you to share and celebrate Pork Crown Roast Day. Enjoy!

Paula Dean House Seasoning

1/4 cup chopped dried apricots

Sprinkle roast on all sides with House Seasoning; place, bone ends up, in a shallow roasting pan. Insert a meat thermometer, making sure it does not touch fat or bone. Saute onion in butter until tender but not browned. Add rice, House Seasoning, to taste, and poultry seasoning and water to onion; stir to moisten rice. Bring rice mixture to a boil, then remove from heat. Cover tightly and let stand 10 minutes. Stir dried prunes and dried apricots into the rice mixture. Fill center of roast with rice mixture.
