Sour Cream Pork Chops


Pork chops were super cheap a few weeks ago, $.99/lb, so you know I bought 10-15 lbs for the month. Now it is time to start cooking them! I remembered a recipe that I made a few weeks ago that I thought would work perfectly with pork instead of chicken. The recipe was simple so…

Top Recipes for July 2019


This month lots of the older recipes have getting attention. These Funeral Potatoes, or Cheesy Potatoes, (click for link to recipe) were a hit on Easter but they are good for any time of year! This recipe for Paula Deen’s Bobby’s Goulash (click for link to recipe) is from 2012. I haven’t revisted it but…

Choose Your Topping Pork Chops


We made a deal that if we were done before dinner before the ice cream shop closed we would get ice cream and head to the beach. It was already 8:00 pm so we weren’t sure if it was possible. This meal made it possible. Super simple and we were to the beach before sunset!…

Favorite Recipes Revisited: BLT Pasta Salad


This recipe from 2018 is one of our favorites for Spring. It has the taste that summer is just around the corner! We have been snowbound lately and I have been dreaming of warmer temperatures. So, my mind is turning to summer picnics and salads. To battle the winter doldrums we had an Indoor picnic…

Braised Red Cabbage (updated)


If you asked my children the star of this plate was the Braised Red Cabbage (click here for link to original recipe), although the German Meatballs and Spaetzle were good too (click here for link to recipe). There was not a bite left at the end of dinner.  They love red cabbage. My house smelled…

Ham and Cheese Stromboli


They had full boneless hams on sale recently for $.99 a lb! That is a super price here. So, I bought one and cut it into pieces before freezing so that we could use if for different dishes – baked ham, soups, casseroles, etc…. We took out one of the smaller pieces for dinner the…

Italian Sausage Stew


Confession time. I still have my Christmas tree up. We decided in January we were going to leave it up all year. We love looking at the lights at night. We don’t light it every night but decided to decorate if for the holidays. I just ordered some green lights for St. Patrick’s Day. Which…

Country Egg and Sausage Breakfast Casserole


The cold has broken and it was over a 90 degree temperature change between yesterday and last week. Things are getting slushy so we are trying to get everything up and off the driveway and sidewalks so that it doesn’t freeze. At least it is warm enough now to do this. End of the month…

Brown Sugar Pork Chops


This dish was hard to photograph. We cooked it in butter so it had a shine to it so it was difficult to get a good picture. I have been reading quite a bit about cooking pork and one of the best suggestions we read was to cook it like a steak so it doesn’t…

Impossible Pizza Pie


We finally put our tree up and lit it! It has no decorations but at this point I am okay with that. We opened the curtains so you can see it from outside and it looks pretty. I love lying in bed at night and taking my  glasses off to look at the lights. The…

Slow Cooker Pork Chops with Cinnamon Apples


So, this is how we spent our Thanksgiving. My daughter danced in the Mid-America Oireachtas (eer-uh kh-tus) in Louisville, Kentucky. We had a great trip and a fun weekend but we are all worn out. Two of the four have colds now and thankfully since we got home last night about 6 pm today was…

Simple Dirty Rice


Now this isn’t the typical dirty rice that you think of when you think of dirty rice. My family is NOT a fan of Cajun spices so I made it in a way we would like. Do the same for your family. If they like Cajun spices add some to the dish if not what…
