Honey Garlic Pork Chops


School started the last two days in most areas of Michigan and New York. I am watching my friends post back-to-school pictures and hoping everyone has a great day. I forget how tired we all are during the first week of school. I had planned on these big fancy dinners to celebrate and when the…

Top 3 Posts for August


Every month I try to highlight the top three to five posts from the previous month in case  you missed them. This month highlights are a salad, a pizza, and a slow cooker meal. We are definitely into the change of seasons. I think everyone is caught between summer and fall right now. I posted…

Herbed Pork Chops with Garlic Butter


We are looking for very simple dishes as we head back to school in two weeks. I love summer vacation so I am sad to see the days getting shorter but happy that my son will soon have a regular schedule. Though we try to keep one over the summer it is not quite as…

Flavorful Fried Pork Chops


We have tons of great things happening this month so I am trying to keep our grocery bill down as much as possible to pay for all the fun we are having. One of the things is we are eating far more pork right now. It is super inexpensive at our local stores right now…

Angel Pork Chops


We spent the entire weekend in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at two Feis (rhymes with mesh). We headed home.  She earned a 2nd place trophy in Treble Reel, 3rd in Traditional Set (both days), and a 3rd in Slip Jig. She was pretty pleased with her first day of dancing not so much on her second day….

Happy Easter! Top 5 Recipes for March 2018


What a week it has been. I overestimated what being away and working 12 hour days would do to me. I thought for sure I could keep up my blog while away and have no problem. Boy, was I wrong. But, I am home now and having a wonderful day with my family. I hope…

French Onion Pork Chops


My daughter hates onions but she loves French Onion Soup. Part of this I think is because of all the drippy, melty cheese that is on the soup. This recipe has all the cheese and lots of great flavor. Verdict: Confession, I didn’t make this meal my partner did. We have been nursing the remainder…

Pork Chops Stuffed with Cornbread, Apple and Craisin Stuffing


It’s the beginning of the month so I am on the lookout for sales on meat for the month. They had 1″ plus thick pork chops on sale for $1.49 a pound. These are the perfect thickness for stuffing with all kinds of good things. It is fall so my mind immediately turns to stuffing,…

Simple Skillet Pineapple Pork Chops


One last pork chop recipe for August. We are nearing the end of using all of our $1.69 mixed cut pork chops that we bought a few weeks ago to help stretch our budget. Though my family has not complained, well too much, about the number of times we have had pork chops they have…

Pork Chops in Sour Cream Gravy


Did you get to watch the eclipse yesterday? Live? On the internet? We made viewing boxes but even though it was sunny when I took this picture there were only a few minutes when the sky was not fully overcast. We were able to catch a quick glimpse when it was at full eclipse but…

Drunken Pork Chops


Notice the “Drunken” theme lately? My birthday was early last month and I received LOTS of alcohol in all different forms for my birthday. So, wine in The Drunken Noodles (click for link to post) the other night and beer in the Drunken Pork Chops last night. I don’t drink much so expect to see lots…

Slow Cooker Pork Chops with Sauerkraut and Apple


Things in our house have been hectic so I am trying to use my slow cooker as often as possible. I don’t always care for meat cooked in the slow cooker as they easily overcook (like when I forget to set the timer and they cook for 10-12 hours) and though they are edible they…
