This is it -- my story, my family's story -- the good, the bad, and the very, very stinky. Usually the bad days make the funniest stories...fair warning, they usually involve poop and some level of tears (possibly mine).
Maple Glazed Pork Chops (You can thank me later for this yummmmmmy dinner. Not kidding when I say that this dish is capable of making The Cabana Boy pack up his stuff and leave work early.)
*most will want to double this recipe, as it only serves 2
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 bone-in pork loin chops (7 ounces each)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1-1/2 teaspoons butter, melted
1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Combine the first five ingredients; rub over pork chops. Place in a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 20 minutes. Combine the remaining ingredients; pour over chops. Bake 5 minutes longer or until meat juices run clear. Yield: 2 servings.
Easy, Yummy Chili Cheese Dip (the leftovers make a great filling for an omelet, by the way)
Ingredients: 1 brick cream cheese (I use the neufatchel low fat stuff) 1 can hot, no bean chili 2 cups (or more if you are a super cheesy person) shredded cheese - usually monterey jack/colby, sharp cheddar or one of the mexican blends
Preheat the oven to 350. Spray an 8x8 glass dish with cooking spray and spread the cream cheese around the bottom evenly. Spread the chili over the cream cheese and top it all with the shredded cheese. Serve with chips (fritos are the best!) and enjoy.
