Thick Cut Pork Chops with Mushrooms, Shallots and Spinach

On Chewing The Fat, the recipes really do come from everywhere.  However in this case, it came from closer to home–our own kitchen. I had an intense desire for a Pork Chop and not one of those boneless half inch deals swathed in plastic wrap.  […]

Prosciutto-wrapped Chicken Breasts stuffed with Black Truffle Goat Cheese, with Shiitake Mushrooms in a Marsala Sauce. Whew!

No American producer of Goat Cheese is more responsible for its ever- increasing popularity than California’s Laura Chenel’s.  Starting in the 1970s, Chenel’s became America’s first commercial producer of this extraordinarily healthful cheese. Everything from its calorie count – 30 to 40% lower than cow’s milk […]

Did you know it was National Nutrition Month?  Neither did I.  But as I was putting together this recipe, which is my own invention borrowed from several sources, one of my fellow recipe writers informed me.  In a holdover from Michelle Obama’s time in the […]

Valentine’s Day Advice: Make Dessert First. This Chocolate Soufflé will fit the bill.

How about some Zha Jiang Mian for dinner tonight? Well then, how about some Black Bean Noodles with Pork and Mushrooms?

Andrew’s sister Lauren and I like to share “Comments” made by cooks about other people’s recipes.   Our particular favorites are when someone spends not one minute following the original recipe but instead enters their own little world and creates a dish that has absolutely nothing […]

Pasta with Mushroom Bolognese Sauce

Bucatini works beautifully in this recipe “I would be hard pressed to tell you whether or not there was meat in this sauce”. That was Andrew’s take once I served him this completely Vegetarian version of Italy’s renowned Bolognese sauce.   I am not sure that’s […]

Double Cut Pork Chops with Roasted Garlic Butter and a side of Stir Fried Asparagus and Mushrooms

Pork is the world’s most widely eaten meat.  It accounts for 38 percent of meat production worldwide.  You’ll have trouble finding it in the Middle East and most of the Muslim world because both Jewish kosher and Islamic halal diets ban it outright.  But almost […]
