Baked Cinnamon Apple Pork Chops

Baked Cinnamon Apple Pork Chops.

Baked Cinnamon Apple Pork Chops are a sheet pan dinner style version of an American classic.  Both Baker’s Man and I grew up eating pork chops with apple sauce, so this combination wasn’t unusual at all.  The final result was tender, delicious, and very easy to prepare.  In fact, after some initial resistance to the recipe, Baker’s Man has approved this recipe for regular rotation on our menu during the colder months. 

Stuffing Meatloaf

Stuffing Meatloaf

Meatloaf is an American classic, and is something that many people list as a comfort food.  In our household, meatloaf is something that’s reserved for Fall and Winter meals when I don’t mind turning on the oven.  This recipe for stuffing meatloaf is different from our previous meatloaf recipe.  This version gets the majority of the seasoning from a package of corn bread stuffing mix that’s used as the breading in the meatloaf.      This recipe for stuffing meatloaf is easy to prepare, and goes great with cauliflower mashed potatoes and garlic green beans.

Fish and Seafood Recipes

Fish and Seafood Recipes

Fish and Seafood recipes are a favorite of Baker’s Man, so we have several of them in our recipe rotation.  Since it’s the middle of Lent, I thought that I should share them here in case any of my readers are looking for something new to try on those “meatless” days of Lent.  I apologize for not getting this posted sooner, but I’ve been a bit obsessed with trying to learn as much as I can about vegan cooking to prepare for my upcoming 30 days of Vegan challenge which starts, co-incidentally on April 1, which is also Easter Sunday.  […]

Baked Ravioli Casserole

Baked Ravioli Casserole

Baked Ravioli Casserole is simple to assemble and gets dinner into the oven, and onto the table, without much fuss.    The dish contains only 3 ingredients,  but tastes like you worked much harder at getting it onto the table.  Like my sheet pan dinners, once this dish is assembled, it goes into the oven where it bakes for about 45 minutes.  That allows you to help the kids with homework, or tend to whatever needs your attention, while dinner takes care of itself.

Burrito Pie

Burrito Pie

What do you do if there are only three tortillas, and you’re supposed to make burritos for dinner for a family?  Do you run to the store?  Absolutely not.  When we run to the store for one item, we end up buying extras, and that can hurt your grocery budget.  Instead, you whip up a simple and delicious Burrito Pie.  This recipe is a creative and tasty way to serve a family of five a filling meal with only three burrito sized tortillas.    Burrito Pie is a winning weeknight dinner.

Five Sheet Pan Dinners–Perfect Winter Meals

It’s cold outside, and that means it’s the perfect time of year to turn on the oven and make sheet pan dinners.  Winter is the perfect time of year for these dinners for a couple of reasons.  First, baking seems to help warm up the house.  Second, if your kids are in school, and after school activities, life can get a little crazy.  Sheet pan dinners are perfect because once you put everything on the pan and pop it into the oven, they pretty much take care of themselves.  That frees you up to help with homework or whatever else […]

Italian Style Tilapia

Tilapia del Estilo Italiano

Italian Style Tilapia is another sheet pan dinner, but in my case, I prepare it in a 9X13 inch pan.  This recipe is very simple.  The ingredients are layered in a prepared baking pan before being placed in the oven and baked.  The best part is that the Tilapia is baked from the frozen state, so it’s a great dish if you’ve forgotten to thaw the meat for dinner.   Italian style tilapia practically prepares itself.

Apple Cranberry Pork Chops

Apple Cranberry Pork Chops

Apple Cranberry Pork Chops are a delicious twist.  Making these pork chops is a great way to use up leftover apples, and they’re a delicious way to use less than perfect apples in a savory dish instead of dessert.  It’s a twist on a classic Autumn side dish–Apples an onions.  This recipe for Apple Cranberry Pork Chops is a simple way to a delectable dinner.    

Baked Pork Chops Puttanesca

Baked Pork Chops Puttanesca

Pork Chops Puttanesca is another one of those simple meals that practically cook themselves in a large baking dish.   The ingredients can be combined the night before and the pork chops allowed to marinate in the tomatoes, herbs, and spices.  This helps your Pork Chops Puttanesca to be more tender.    It’s a simple and delicious meal that’s perfect for a busy weeknight.
