Buffalo Pork Chops


I am always looking for simple dinners and I remembered this recipe from 2014. The Mozzarella Buffalo Pork Chops (click for link to original post) is a perfect weekday meal in that it is on the table in about 30 minutes. It has tons of flavor and is super juicy. Verdict: This is one of…

Top 5 Recipes for August 2019


I can tell everyone is looking to fall foods by the top recipes from my blog. Paula Deen’s Bobby’s Goulash (click for link to original recipe) was the number one post for my blog during August. Potatoes, casseroles, and fall flavors were the top of the list. Spare Rib Casserole (click for link to original…

Southern Fried Pork Chops


My children tend not to really like pork. They will eat it if it has enough sauce – garlic, soy, or even A-1. But, if I gave them a choice I think this would be the last choice of meat they would ask to have for dinner. I don’t over cook it. It is not…

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…

Herbed Cheese Crostini with Steak or Pork


To me the best dinners are the cook once and eat twice meals. We grilled extra steak the other night and a had two leftover Drunken Pork Chops (click for link to recipe). When I suggested this for dinner my family was thrilled. They love to do appetizer dinners every once in a while. I…

Slow Cooker Asian Ribs


So, in fairness I did not take the pictures of dinner last night. My daughter and I never even got to taste them last night. Her dance recital is in 5 weeks and Feising (Irish dance competition) season starts this weekend so the class ran half-an-hour over. This will be typical for the next 2 months….

Korean Style Pork Chops


Pork chops were on sale before Christmas so I am looking for different ways so serve them so my family does not get tired of them. We are nearing the bottom of the freezer for “No Buy January.” The pork chops are similar in style to the Glazed Pork Chops (click for link to recipe)…

Schnitzel with German Potato Salad and Red Braised Cabbage


My daughter’s birthday was two months ago. For her birthday dinner she had asked for a German dinner.  But, because times were busy then we took her out to dinner with the promise that we would make her a dinner later. Well, later finally rolled around the other night. I had taken her out for…

Pork Stir Fry with Chow Mein Noodles


I served this dinner earlier in the week but left it to post today knowing that Thanksgiving Day would throw my schedule off a bit. Hope you enjoy! In cleaning out the freezer I found 4 boneless pork chops that needed to be used as soon as possible. The other night was one of our…

Greek Spiced Grilled Pork Chops


Some days I am lucky I get food on the table for dinner. This was actually a well thought out meal but the lack of ambition was what was killing me. I was exhausted and wanted nothing to do with cooking. The lure of takeout or going to a restaurant were calling my name. But,…

Sesame Noodles with Pork


Being as frugal as I am, I wanted to use up the last bits of Glazed Pork Roast from the other night.  But, dinner also needed to be on the table fairly quickly. If you have not used Chinese Chow Mein noodles before try them!  They are better in Chinese noodle dishes than spaghetti and…

Cuban Paninnis


So, I didn’t post yesterday.  After a horrible round of a Summer stomach bug I am finally back to feeling human again.  I really did not even get out of bed until 4:00 pm yesterday except to get sick and take my son to see his new cello teacher.  Even then, I came back home…
