Tyler Florence…my hero! I used his basic recipe for Po’ Boys – with a few deletions and additions, and it is amazing! His Creole sauce is so good, my son went nuts over it. While these may look like a basic Po’ Boy, I promise you, they are anything but. I’ve had them in many different areas of the country and these beat out every restaurant version.
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!
I didn’t use to care for Minestrone. And that’s putting it mildly. I’d had a couple at restaurants that weren’t great and I never explored it further. What I had was kind of muddy and dull in flavor and that pasta in it? Ummm, no thank you! This recipe for Winter Minestrone with Sausage & Beans is the one that turned me around. If you’re like I was, it’s might be time to revisit Minestrone.
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.
Pizza! Yeah, it’s something to get excited about especially at our house. Especially home-made. Coz where I live, it’s hard to get great great pizza and and the good places always seem to have a line and a long wait. Heck, even the mediocre places do.
