One Pan Ponzu Pork Chop Dinner w/Sweet Potatoes, Apples & Onions

This One Pan Ponzu Pork Chop Dinner is a sure-fire family pleaser which takes only minutes to prepare. You’ll only need a vegetable peeler and chef’s knife to prepare and slice the apples, onions, and sweet potatoes. Then the majority of the work is done by the oven while you go relax for 40 minutes until dinner is wonderfully caramelized and ready to serve. Easy peasy, pork chop pleasy! 🙂

Antioxidant Rich Blood Orange Salad with Blueberries & Feta

I have a confession to make, I’d never even tried a blood orange before making this Blood Orange Salad.

Oh sure I’d seen them in the stores often enough, and on other people’s blogs, but since I’m not that fond of eating citrus fruits on their own, I’ve never added them to my shopping cart. However, now I’m in love with them and I’m never looking back!!

Showstopper Thanksgiving Turkey Bread Bowl Appetizer with Creamy Spinach Ranch Dip

This Turkey Bread Bowl with Creamy Spinach Ranch Dip is an appetizer I brought to my brother and sister-in-law’s house last year when they hosted Thanksgiving. That year, I made him the morning of Thanksgiving and then all year I kept him in the back of my mind so I could bring him to you this year. After all, he’s just too cute (and tasty) not to share with you here.

Slow Cooker Homestyle Apple Pear Sauce with Amaretto

You guys, it’s apple season! Can you feel the slight chill in the air and the warm scent of cinnamon that is just about everywhere? Yeah, me either but I’m hopeful that it will happen soon. Even though it’s September, today in Illinois where I live the temperatures are supposed to be in the 90’s with a heat index in the 100’s. UGH! Oh well. Since there’s nothing I can do about the outside temperatures, I might as well make it feel like fall on the inside and cook up a batch of Slow Cooker Homestyle Apple Pear Sauce with Amaretto.

Italian Layered Zucchini Parmesan

With zucchinis still being so prevalent in the grocery store, and in home gardens and farmer’s markets, I wanted to come up with a recipe that marries the idea of eggplant Parmesan, and pizza, but with using summer squash as a replacement for the eggplant. I think I hit the nail right on the head with this recipe for Italian Layered Zucchini Parmesan! Try it, and you be the judge.
