The last time I posted a recipe for shepherd's pie, someone from England commented and said it wasn't a shepherd's pie. Instead, what I had posted, was a "cottage pie". So I researched both of the recipes to see if there truly is a difference. It's really just semantics. I found out both terms are… Continue reading Pork & Apple Cottage Pie
Of all the squashes in the world, delicata squash has to be my favorite. It's slightly sweet, slightly nutty, and the perfect ingredient for a fall dinner. It's so great you don't even have to peel it. I always eat the squash skin and all. If you can find delicata at your grocery store, I… Continue reading Maple Pork Sheet Pan Dinner
Do you ever have an idea and then instantly regret it when you put that idea into motion? That happened to me this weekend with this recipe. I didn't want to go to the grocery store so all the meals I meal prepped this weekend came from my fridge and pantry. I have a surplus… Continue reading Pork Chop Parmesan

Savory bone-in chops slow cooked to perfection with a tangy tomato & balsamic vinegar sauce. Best served with noodles or potatoes and with a heap of the tomatoes!
Can we talk about how difficult it is to caramelize onions? Seriously. It's insane. Ain't nobody got time to babysit a pan full of low-cooking, thin strips of onions for an hour. How come nobody has thought of an easier way? Sure, you can cheat by adding a little bit of sugar, but it's still… Continue reading French Onion Pork Chops
Let's talk about pork. The other white meat. I feel like pork gets a bad rap. It's typically positioned at the bottom of the totem pole on people's choice of protein. Most people overcook the meat, turning off potential future pork lovers. Pork is one of my favorite things to cook. Tenderloin, shoulder roast, bacon,… Continue reading Pork & Apples with Stuffing
