Honey Garlic Pork Chops

I've been browsing my expansive cookbook collection lately for inspiration. I've got dozens of vintage cookbooks packed full of old school jello and casserole recipes. I've been trying to find Christmas recipes and new dinners that are exciting and fresh and different. The only bad thing about those vintage cookbooks is for every good dinner… Continue reading Honey Garlic Pork Chops

Garlic Sriracha Pork Stir-Fry

It's a chilly one out there today. We're under an ice storm warning for the next several days and I'm hoping and praying our electricity doesn't go out. I love how Oklahoma skips right over fall and dives head first into winter. Leaves changing colors, what's that? Cool fall temps with sweaters? Never heard of… Continue reading Garlic Sriracha Pork Stir-Fry

Pork and Sweet Potatoes with Spicy Cabbage

Pork tenderloins have been on sale at my grocery store lately so I've been buying them up. Tenderloin is probably my favorite cut of pork. As the name implies, it's super tender---but only if it's correctly cooked. Many times, home cooks will overcook pork and let it dry out. There's nothing worse than a tough… Continue reading Pork and Sweet Potatoes with Spicy Cabbage

Pork Chops with Herby Mustard

For Christmas, my dad bought me this countertop hydroponic garden that can grow herbs and small vegetables. Knowing me, I thought nothing would grow. I've been known to kill just about every plant I've ever owned. Even a fern. A FERN. Something that's virtually unkillable. So, I followed the instructions and took it with a… Continue reading Pork Chops with Herby Mustard

Pork Tenderloin with Creamy Dill Sauce

For Christmas, my dad got me this countertop, hydroponic herb garden. Three months later, I'm overrun with mint and dill. I've been tailoring my recipes over the last two weeks to use up the excess. I'm convinced dill can grow to be as tall as me (and that's 6 foot tall!). It just will not… Continue reading Pork Tenderloin with Creamy Dill Sauce
