Pork Chops with Carolina Spice Rub

Pork Chops with Carolina Spice Rub

Before Hunter was born, I told Dustin my number one goal for the first six months after giving birth was to get into shape. I hadn't been in the best health before getting pregnant and the pregnancy hadn't really helped me with my whole body image. Plus, due to [...]

Rye-Stuffed Pork Chops

My Favorite Fall Recipes

Oh my goodness, I am so, so excited for the Fall. And I'm not just saying that because it means cooler weather. Not gonna lie, though, these Texas summers take some getting used to. It's been in the 90's the past few weeks and that has felt cool. Hard to believe! Fall is just so [...]

Chile Verde

We were out to dinner the other night at Pappasito's, which is quickly becoming our favorite Austin Mexican restaurant, and I saw Hatch Chile Verde Enchiladas was one of the specials. Apparently, they have what are called Hatch Chiles out here and they are just around for a short while.  All of a sudden, restaurants [...]


BLT with Chipotle Mayo

Recently, Jennie, a food blogger over at In Jennie's Kitchen, lost her husband after he suffered a heart attack. If you didn't know about Jennie before reading this post, neither had I. But I'm pretty sure I'll never forget her story. I stumbled upon Jennie's blog after seeing a post for Peanut Butter Pie {for [...]

Ham And Gruyere Panini

Ham and Gruyere Panini

Do you remember when paninis were super popular? It seemed like you couldn't turn around without someone talking about paninis. Now, it seems they have been replaced -- and then replaced again -- by other hot trends. Like macarons or frozen yogurt.  Though, I may be totally off -- I don't tend to follow trends. [...]


How to Make Egg Rolls

I know I often complain about share my annoyance with good food gone bad... ...like when restaurants mess up fried rice, breakfast burritos, pork chops or overcook fish (Wait -- I haven't complained about the fish yet? -- give it time). Well, for me, egg rolls should be added to this (ever-growing) list.  Too often, [...]

Pork Fried Rice

Who doesn't love pork fried rice, right? Well -- err -- except for vegetarians, vegans and people who don't like rice or Chinese food or fried rice, for that matter... But, still, I think you get my point.  Pork fried rice is comforting and tasty and, well, yummy. Believe it or not, it's also amazingly [...]

Best Pork Chops

Best Pork Chops

I have to admit...I'm usually not that big a fan of pork chops. Nothing against them personally -- I just typically find them to be too dry, under-seasoned, tough or bland.  Guess it's more in the preparation than the actual chop. Now, I do love my Rye-Stuffed Pork Chops with Apple-Thyme Pan Sauce recipe and [...]

Meat Lasagna

Part Two of Dustin's birthday meal extravaganza: Meat Lasagna. And, when I say "Lasagna," I mean Dustin's style of lasagna -- with plenty of Italian sausage, ground beef and, of course, cheese. Not that I'm complaining. This particular lasagna recipe has actually been passed down over several generations in Dustin's family, starting first with his [...]
