I bought a box of croutons and after tasting them, never repeated that action – but I have since been subjected to store-bought croutons over and over at the homes of family and friends. Sorry guys, it had to be said! I have to admit, it’s nice to have that little crunch in the salad but it can be so much better!
For 50 plus years our family has made this probably not very authentic, but absolutely delicious Parmesan Toast.
The slightly sweet, slightly tart apple brings out the best in pork, and in the Midwest, applesauce with pork chops is kind of a thing. At home, sometimes we had stuffing with our pork chops (raise your hand if your Mom jumped on the Stove Top Stuffing when it was introduced in 1972.) It’s safe to say, though, we never had a gorgeous dinner like these Apple Glazed Stuffed Pork Chops that combine the best of both worlds!
How about Brunch this week, maybe over the weekend or for dinner? You just can’t go wrong with this Upside Down Caramel Apple French Toast, adapted originally from Tyler Florence. It’s a decadent and rich French Toast and full of caramelly apples punctuated by a few dried cranberries and a handful of pecans for a little crunch.
Fall, Winter, Spring – it doesn’t matter, this beautiful French Onion Soup is perfect when ever there is a chill in the air. Deeply satisfying, I forget, until I eat it, how much fun it is to take the first bite.
