194: Greek-Style Pork Chops

194: Greek-Style Pork Chops

For another dinner we had Greek-Style Pork Chops. For this recipe, you briefly marinate pork chops in a little red wine vinegar, oregano, garlic, and olive oil. You make a cucumber, onion, and tomato salad and a cucumber sauce to go with it. No one […]

164: Chicken with Bell Peppers, Ham, and Paprika

164: Chicken with Bell Peppers, Ham, and Paprika

I decided to make Chicken with Bell Peppers, Smoked Ham, and Paprika to use up some of the extra ham I had stashed away in my freezer. Of course, mine wasn’t smoked ham. I also just had regular paprika instead of smoked paprika. Ingredient differences […]

134: Braised and Grilled Ribs

134: Braised and Grilled Ribs

We grilled over Memorial Day weekend, both because it was a three-day weekend for me, and because the Meat Salesroom had a sale on spareribs. I managed to buy… 15 pounds. I wanted a 10-lb box, and they asked me if I wanted over or […]

128: Barbecued Pork Back Ribs

128: Barbecued Pork Back Ribs

I decided that I wanted Alex to try grilling ribs. Honestly, I’ve never really understood the fascination with ribs. Don’t get me wrong – I do think that they’re delicious. It’s just always a lot of work to get the meat off of the bone. […]

121: Stuffed Pork Chops

121: Stuffed Pork Chops

Alex bought us some butterflied pork chops from the Meat Salesroom. I don’t know that I’d ever had butterflied pork chops around, so I decided I wanted to try to make stuffed pork chops. I didn’t have a recipe for this, so I looked around. […]

115: Carne Adovada

115: Carne Adovada

Last summer when Alex was in New Mexico and had to cook for himself, he told me that he could get this “carne adovada” seasoned pork from the meat counter for a pretty good price. I’ve wanted to make carne adovada ever since. I had […]

Fiesta – 106-108

Fiesta – 106-108

Cinco de Mayo seems like a good excuse to make a complete Mexican meal. We took this outside last year (chips and salsa, chicken burritos, black beans, margaritas, and fresh air), and I loved it! I decided that we’d take our folding table and chairs […]

105: Adobo Pork and Potato Packets

105: Adobo Pork and Potato Packets

On Tuesday I made Adobo Pork and Potato Packets. This was pretty quick to make. In typical fashion, I didn’t notice that this was a grill recipe, so I had to use the oven broiler instead. The recipe was pretty simple. You blend together red […]

94: Shrimp and Okra Gumbo

94: Shrimp and Okra Gumbo

On Tuesday I decided to make Shrimp and Okra Gumbo. I had some okra left in my freezer, and this sounded like it would have lots of vegetables. This also gave me a chance to use up a little more of the ham I had […]

Easter Dinner – 76: Thyme-Honey Glazed Ham and 77: Lemon Mousse Parfaits

Easter Dinner – 76: Thyme-Honey Glazed Ham and 77: Lemon Mousse Parfaits

I decided I wanted to make a ham for Easter dinner. We don’t really do anything for Easter, but I thought it would be fun to make a sit-down meal. I bought a ham and decided to make a Thyme-Honey Glaze to go on it, […]
