pan roasted frenched pork rib chops with chutney and cabernet demi-glace

I wanted to develop a really com­plex recipe for frenched pork chops. I love the pre­sen­ta­tion of a frenched chop and the result­ing moist­ness from any cut of meat with the bone left intact. (If you can’t find frenched chops, … more




gluten-free swedish meatballs

Find­ing my night­shade intol­er­ance forced me to give up meatballs…at least meat­balls that way I’ve always pre­pared them. In an attempt to find a meat­ball I like, I sud­denly thought…‘Swedish.’ There is pork in here, which I rarely eat, but … more




carnitas tacos

It is my per­sonal belief that if you heat up an oven or a crock pot, then you should try to get at least two meals out of it. Pork is a lean and fairly inex­pen­sive way to feed a … more

I make this every Thanks­giv­ing from the left­over ham bone. I cook for quite a crowd — two turkeys and two hams because we love lots of left­overs! This is way to make your hol­i­day ham really stretch, and makes … more




holiday bread dressing

My lit­tle boy is 7 and a half (as he will tell you) and he just had his first bite of dress­ing, thank you very much to Udi’s Gluten-Free Bread. Thanks­giv­ing din­ner is my absolute favorite din­ner of the entire … more




ham & cheese rolls kids lunch

With lots of pro­tein, fruits and veg­eta­bles, this is a won­der­ful packed lunch for kids. My two are like hob­bits, except instead of eat­ing two break­fasts, they eat two lunches — one at school and another when they get home, … more
