Chorizo & Cranberry Cornbread Stuffing

Chorizo & Cranberry Cornbread Stuffing

If there is anything I like to have exactly the same every single year, almost without exception, it’s my very traditional Classic Midwestern Stuffing. If you read that post, you’ll see I’m a little bit adamant about it. But then a couple of years ago, my sister talked me into doing her Ridiculously Delish Bacon Stuffing, and now, here I am posting out this recipe for a Chorizo & Cranberry Cornbread Stuffing.

Favorite Pork Chop Brine

Favorite Pork Chop Brine

Do you guys brine your pork chops? If you don’t I highly recommend you give it a shot and this Favorite Pork Chop Brine is a great one to start with. With very little effort and just a little planning, you can take today’s leaner (and sometimes drier) pork chops and help nudge them towards something more succulent and juicy by brining. You’ll still need to be careful not to overcook that pork, but brining is a game-changer.

I don’t think anyone can deny that I can be a bit of a food snob now and then. That’s made me avoid making certain dishes in my Instant Pot. Namely, Instant Pot Spaghetti. I took the plunge after visiting my daughter. When I got home, I decided to put out a little series of super easy, family-friendly Instant Pot meals to help Jess feed her hungry hoard. I gotta say, I’m eating my words over this recipe! Or I would be if I weren’t stuffing my mouth with this Simple Instant Pot Spaghetti!

I gotta say, I’m pretty much all over the place, today. Yesterday it was a down-home dish of Easy Cheesy Chili Mac and today? Today, I’m going to Bulgaria, in my mind at least, and serving up Bulgarian Cheese Pot – Сирене по шопски в гювече. If you are from Bulgaria or know Bulgarian, please feel free to correct my translation if it isn’t correct! Google translation has not always done me right!

There’s no doubt summer is here, even in Minnesota, where for the most part it’s been cool. And there’s no doubt Father’s day is just around the corner, too, this Sunday. Father’s day always makes me think about being outside, maybe barbecuing, and barbecuing makes me think about ribs. I mean other than a big T-bone there’s not much more manly than Ribs! And if you’re looking for something different, take a peek at these Spicy Jerk Ribs with Sweet Chutney Glaze.
