Creamy Chicken Quesadillas

When we had dinner at Kevin’s on Sunday the conversation turned to spicy food. I love spicy dishes but Mr. C can’t handle the heat the way he could before. But that talk made me crave something I haven’t made in quite a while; Creamy Chicken Quesadillas.

Schweineschnitzel with Mushroom Gravy

There are many versions of schnitzel although people often lump them all together as Weinerschnitzel. Real Weinerschnitzel is made only with veal and is actually a geographically protected term in Germany and Austria. There is also Hunter’s Schnitzel which was originally made with the backstraps of boars and now includes the use of venison and is served with mushroom gravy. But this is Schweineschnitzel, which is made with pork and usually served with Spätzle (a traditional German noodle) and gravy.

Bam’s Breaded Pork Chops

Yesterday was not a fantastic day. My hands were terribly swollen when I woke up and it took me a while to even be able to make a loose fist. On top of being stiff and sore all over I had a migraine. The only thing I wanted to do was retreat to my bed and feel sorry for myself but I refused. If nothing else I was determined to make a good dinner and thick, juicy pork chops coated in a slightly spicy breading is my idea of a great dinner! It was time for Bam’s Breaded Pork Chops.

Crab Cakes with Lemon Aioli

I haven’t had crab cakes since the last time we were in Virginia Beach visiting Mama (M’s mom). I’m actually a bit surprised I haven’t made any since I love crab. So tonight we’re having crab cakes with lemon aioli.
