Chinese Grocery Roast Pork

Chinese Grocery Roast Pork

Preface: This is one of those recipes that normally doesn’t make it into an actual post. But I figured I’d done the leg work, so why not post it and show everyone that i’m not infallible. I can cook poorly sometimes!

See, I was all set to do this wonderful long post about […]

Apple-Stuffed Thick Cut Pork Chops

I made this recipe for the first time about a month ago and it was so freaking good! So I had some pork chops thawing out the other day and thought I would appease my friend, Beth, and do a post about it. I still owe her a post on how to sear stuff. Oddly […]

So I finally have my kitchen back! Last night I didn’t have the bf and/or his kids to cook for, so I made something quick, delicious AND nutritious! I found the recipe on the Allrecipes.com last fall and I finally got around to making it.

Well, first things first, HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! I hope ya’ll had a good time and made sure to eat your collard greens, black eyed peas and cornbread.

I’ve been meaning to make this for awhile and I finally got around to it this weekend. I apologize in advance for the not-so-great pictures….

The recipe doesn’t call for spinach, but I had some left over from a previous recipe and I didn’t want it to go to waste, so I snapped the […]

Yeah yeah yeah – I know I’m not exactly on-the-ball with the whole posting thing, but shush because here comes a good’un!

There’s a country cookin’ restaurant here in town and every once in awhile they have chicken and dressing. I attempted to make it once using my homemade dressing recipe and while it came […]

Oven-Fried Chimichangas

Oven-Fried Chimichangas

Today’s recipe is a tried and true favorite of mine. It’s so simple and versatile that a lot of times I don’t even have to go to the store for anything.

I found this recipe on fromthegalley.blogspot.com awhile ago and I’ve made several changes, but that’s the great thing about the recipe. It allows for […]

I have a couple different anecdotes regarding collard greens soup, but I’ll make them fast!
