This recipe is super simple and a breeze to prepare, especially if one does a little (and I mean little) prep work ahead of time. The flavors some together in a light, but satisfying way. A perfect warm weather, or frankly anytime, meal.

Pork Chops with Apricot Sauce
A lovely, cold weather, comfort food dinner, served with cheddar cheese grits and tomatoes and mozzarella.
Everyone enjoys this simple meal. I like to serve it with thin spaghetti tossed with a lemon butter sauce and sliced tomatoes with a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
A nice, simple and tasty dinner, but it helps to do some prep work to make things go smoothly when preparing this dish – combine stock and mustard, chop shallot, measure out lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce. I served this with mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus tossed with melted butter and lemon juice.
Weiner Schnitzel with Sweet and Sour Cabbage

Carrot Cake is one of those desserts that, frankly, I make for the frosting. There is just something so scrumptious about a sweet cream cheese frosting that I could (almost) eat it with a spoon. I have tweaked different recipes to suit my Carrot Cake tastes – I do not care for raisins (which manyContinue reading “Carrot Cake”
Steak Grillades with Cheese Noodles
This is a super easy and delicious recipe that comes together quick if ingredients are prepped and ready to go. I do not add a side dish because this already has a starch and vegetables in it.
Grilled Balsamic Marinated Grilled Chicken
Yum-O is how I describe this meal. I was looking for something different (but not TOO different) and this hit the nail on the head. I served it with a salad of baby lettuces, blueberries, raspberries and sugared almonds dressed with Olive Garden’s Italian dressing and “cheese toasts” (pita bread brushed with olive oil, sprinkledContinue reading “Grilled Balsamic Marinated Grilled Chicken”
