Are you a fan of chicken and waffles? I sure am. There is something about those sweet and savory flavors that get me every time! I would gladly eat chicken & waffles for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And, I wouldn’t put it past me to eat chicken & waffles for all three meals in one particular day if I ever had the opportunity. LOL! Is it so wrong? Yeah, probably. But, a girl can dream, right?
This riff recipe of Corned Beef & Swiss Cheese Reuben Quesadillas with 1000 Islands Dipping sauce came about when I had planned on making traditional Reuben sandwiches with rye bread for dinner one night, but realized that I’d forgotten to purchase rye bread at the store. Uh oh! Luckily for me, I had a full package of flour tortillas that were calling my name and begging for their chance to be utilized in something other than a Tex-Mex recipe. Enter this recipe for Corned Beef & Swiss Cheese Reuben Quesadillas with Creamy 1000 Islands Dipping Sauce.
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! 🙂

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.
Back in the 70’s (my high school days) I remember cucumber dip being all the rage. It was a tangy mix of grated cucumber, sour cream, and onion. I decided to revisit what I recall was my favorite dip, and (naturally) add my own twist to it for a 2016 update.
