Peppered Pork Chops These Peppered Pork Chops have a little bit of a bite due to the cracked pepper, but the sauce adds great flavor and mellows the bite a bit. I served this with steamed brussel sprouts and flavored rice. Everyone loved it, especially my husband. I used green onions where this recipe called for leeks, but I bet it would be awesome with shallots too. I just used what I had on hand.

Puff Pancake, aka Breakfast Nirvana Wow, sorry for disappearing like that! The Fuji Foodie Train was completely derailed this week by sickness. The Fujilings’ pediatrician tells me that this cold and flu season has been particularly nasty, and I believe it! Squirrel already had a cold about a month ago, and then about a week ago came down with a lovely triple combo of a cold, sinus infection, and pink eye. Then she was sweet enough to share the sinus infection with yours truly. Top 10 Best Novels of the Last 20 Years Books The ten novels on this list all substantiate the belief that books are the most elastic, introspective, human and entertaining form of media that exist. Not movies, not music, not art, not the theatre. A famous author once said that novels are the best way for two human beings to connect with each other. I believe this, and I believe that people who do not find pleasure in words have never had the opportunity to read one of the great novels.
Stuffed Eggplant Recipe Over the past weekend, while I was catching up on my feeds, my heart skipped a beat when I saw a beautiful photo of stuffed eggplants on La Tartine Gourmande. The stunning visual was enough to convince me to make them. On my weekend grocery trip, I made sure to buy a firm and plump eggplant to make these stuffed shells of goodness. Grandma’s tip: run your finger over the eggplant and look closely – there shouldn’t be any tiny holes on it or you’ll have company when you cut it open. This is one heck of a recipe that’s awfully flavourful and indescribably comforting.
Brazilian Lemonade This is my most favorite drink. Ever. Maybe I’d feel differently if I drank (as in alcohol), but there is nothing I love more than a warm, breezy afternoon and a pitcher of Brazilian lemonade. untitled From the molten yolk and bacon crunch of a hand-held breakfast, to the gooey charm of grilled cheese for lunch, nothing matches the simple pleasures of well-made sandwiches. They're quick to assemble, infinitely adaptable, easy to eat, and immediately satisfying—the very definition of good food. The 25 sandwiches you're about to meet can be thrown together during the average basketball halftime or, with practice, during the seventh-inning stretch. (Who needs hot dogs, anyway?) The Best Buffalo Chicken Dip SCORE BIG with this recipe! Surprise guests at your next party by whipping up this delicious dip featuring the flavor of Buffalo wings combined with 2 dreamy creams. Serve with a variety of scoopers (tortilla chips, crackers, celery). It will be a family favorite for sure.
11 Awesome Hangover Cures Hangovers are the worst. That nasty combo of headache, nausea and gut-pain can cost you precious hours of your life. While there are certainly preventative measures you can take to reduce the likelihood of a hangover (headache medication, food, lots of water before bed, etc.), inevitably you’re going to get stuck with a dirty hangover that you need to crush before it kills your day. Here are 11 awesome hangover cures that you can turn to when you need to ease the pain. Sesame Salmon Burgers with Dill Yogurt Sauce I’m eagerly anticipating the day when I can describe completing my to do list as “getting my affairs in order.” You see, I’m reserving that kind of self-importance for the days when my “affairs” consist of more than binge watching Mad Men , sitting atop my counter while I lick a bowl of brownie batter (before it’s empty, mind you), and changing from one pair of pajamas to the next. It should be noted that the second pair of pajamas were quite the trade up. On that day, in the somewhat near future, I’ll turn to Oprah and regretfully tell her that after lunch I simply cannot accompany her to her school in South Africa because “I’ve got to get my affairs in order.”
How to Make Pizza Without Dough I was getting kind of sick of ordering delivery pizza (this happens at least 2-3 times a month). It was time to put a spin on gourmet pizza, but I just didn't know what it would be. Without pizza dough or an oven that is capable of creating the perfect pizza crust (I don't have an oven that can go up to a 1000 degrees), I decided I would use potatoes instead. Baby Back Ribs Today I'm making Baby Back Ribs for the family. I used to be afraid to try these, but I've found that I really can cook them with success. I also made them over the Fourth of July holiday, and they were a hit with the family. My brother-in-law Henry is the expert, so everything I know about ribs I learned from him. Start with choosing the ribs. I got a large pack with three sides.
breakfast pizza My son’s favorite game in the whole world is Let’s Play With The Other Baby! You Know, The One We Keep In The Mirror. We bring him over to this giant mirror in the hallway and he goes berserk, he paws at the “other” baby, kicks his legs, squeals and laughs. It cracks us up too. Babies: they’re so cute when they’re kinda confused!
