Pork chops are a really versatile cut. I fry, bake, and grill pork chops all year. But, like anything, serving them the same way all the time doesn’t make anyone happy. Thankfully I found a new way to make them that both Mr. C and I love! Brown Sugar Dijon Pork Chops made my regular rotation. And I can cook them using every method!

My days weren’t busy last week. I spent the entire week in bed. Once again the doc was less right than I’d hoped with his diagnosis and I was in a lot of pain. He now believes I have a torn muscle in my abdomen and wanted me resting it completely. But after a week of not really cooking I was losing it. So I made Busy Day Lime Vinaigrette Chicken.

Our youngest grandson spent a long weekend with us so I wanted to make something special. He’s 4 years old so anything different, especially if it’s brightly colored appeals to him. For our dinner the first night I made Chicken Strips with Neon Pasta.

A funny thing happened that made me decide to make my Simple Slow Cooker Pot Roast for dinner. Andi had loaned me her DVDs for “Desperate Housewives.” I’d never watched it and Andi was sure I’d find it funny. I did but a couple of lines in the series made Mr. C snicker. He didn’t laugh. He snickered. And it was then that I knew I needed to make Simple Slow Cooker Pot Roast.

Having an empty nest allows me to cook food that may be too spicy or exotic for kids. But Pete and Andi’s youngest daughter comes for dinner frequently and I sometimes I like to make meals geared specifically to the taste of an 8 year old child when she eats here. Tonight Estrella will be having dinner with us so I’m making Bowtie Pasta & Ham with Cream Sauce.

The traditional regional French dish based on potatoes and crème fraiche which originated in the historic Dauphine region in south-eastern France is the inspiration for my version of Gratin dauphinoise.
Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved broccoli. Yep. I was that strange vegetable loving child you’ve heard about. Now that I’m grown I still love broccoli but I like to serve it differently. Caramelized Broccoli with Mushrooms is a great way to get the broccoli I love with even more flavor!
