Caprese SaladFresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil make up the flavors for this classic italian dish. I made it even easier by using little marinated mozzarella balls and store bought balsamic vinegar reduction for garnish. Also this is my very first recipe with a video!
Deviled Pork Chops with Arugula & MandarinsNicely spicy mustard marinade gives this grilled pork chop a great flavor. Paired with the peppery arugula, citrus, and nutty flavor in the salad dressing this makes a great quick meal and is even better if you double up and share with a friend. If you do want this for two, no need to double all the ingredients just the chops, lettuce, and oranges, the marinade and dressing already can be stretched to two dishes.
Italian StallionWhat do you get when you cross an italian sub with a hamburger? An amazing sandwich!
Chicken and PeasThis started as a recipe from my stepmom. She grew up on a farm in southern Indiana and would make this for us but hers was dredged in flour and more like an oven fried chicken. I am trying to be a bit more healthy and eat a low carb diet so I removed the flour and honestly, I don't miss it. This is still a really good chicken recipe thats super easy to make.
Ham-Burger with Adobo Cheese Sauce and Apple Smoked BaconI figured it's called a hamburger so it should be made with ham! Hamburger made with pork instead of beef. Because ground pork is a a bit light on flavor the other ingredients have to be powerful enough too pull it all together. Chipoltle adobo cheese sauce and hardwood smoked bacon do that very well.
Tomato SauceThis is the sauce that my grandmother Concetta made for the entire family when we gathered at my grandparents' house for Monday dinner.
