Berkshire Pork Tomahawk Chops with Shallot & Cherub Tomato Pan Gravy

I am fond of quoting George Carlin:  “Most people are really f-ing stupid.  Should we just adopt all of their standards?”  The little ol’ pork chop – the one you see in Styrofoam containers wrapped in cellophane at your neighborhood grocery store – is a good study in just how stupid people can be. In

Ingenious Sheet Pan Quesadillas

There are a bunch of online recipes for sheetpan quesadillas, and most of them are a form of oven-fried flour tortillas that have been filled foremost with cheese, and then folded on a sheet pan, topped by another sheet pan to apply pressure so the quesadilla seals during the baking process.  But there are only

Houston’s Original Quiche Lorraine

I posted a crustless version of Quiche Lorraine in 2017.  It’s a great dish and a wonderful low carb or Keto friendly recipe that approximates its more classic namesake, and can be found here.  But back in the late 1970s, my Number One Fan worked at the very first Houston’s Restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee.  By

Mini Meatloaf Rings

Serendipity is the faculty of making a fortunate discovery by accident.  This recipe is exactly that.  My Number One Fan wanted meatloaf for dinner.  I wanted stuffed bell peppers for dinner, mainly because we had one red and one green bell pepper that were nearing the end of their refrigerated shelf-life.  I decided to blend

Low Carb Chicken Fried Steak with Cream Gravy

There are dozens of low carb or Keto versions of the classic chicken fried steak recipe on the Internet and it seems as though a lot of them feel like they need to explain that chicken fried steak doesn’t have any chicken in it.  That may be beneficial information for a bunch of Yankees who

Beer Braised & Broiled Pork Belly

  I have been studying up on the dining prospect of preparing pork belly for dinner one night. As is typical in the Internet culinary world, opinions are diverse in how to prepare this lowly cut of pork that until recently, hasn’t been getting a lot of attention short of preparing it as bacon.  In

Low Carb Beef Enchiladas

I love Mexican food, but it’s tough to find recipes that are low-carb friendly. More to the point of this posting, it’s been hard, until now, to find a low-carb substitute for tortillas and tougher still to make enchiladas without them.  This is the second recipe I’ve tried with a relatively new product on the

Hasselback Baked Chicken Breasts

My Number One Fan ran across this interesting recipe on the Pillsbury website, which is even more interesting because it contains no Pillsbury products in the ingredients whatsoever, just a strong suggestion that you serve it along side Pillsbury Crescent Rolls.  The term “Hasselback” is generally used in tandem with potatoes, a dish that was

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

My mother was French Canadian, but I recall her mentioning that a fair number of Polish people lived in the small Ontario town where she grew up.  She said there were certain parts of the city where you could walk down the street and smell garlic cooking.  To be sure, someone there would likely have

Low Carb Chicken Mushroom Spinach Crepes

With credit to My Number One Fan for finding this recipe from the Low Carb Maven website, as well as for finding a product that saved me a whole lot of time, called Crepini Egg Thins, this is a Keto-friendly recipe that was incredibly easy to prepare, resulting in a low calorie/low carb dinner when

Pepperoni & Sausage Pizza Casserole

Here’s one you better be keeping an eye out for portion size.  It’s good enough to eat two servings, which I did, at a whopping 876 calories and 13 net carbs per serving.  That’s not dieting, which I’m trying to do, but damn, this is some good stuff.  My Number One Fan made this from

My Number One Fan’s Chopped Salad

This is a salad that My Number One Fan created as part of a menu at our house that is meant to accompany Tomato Basil Soup for a complete meal.  The recipe for our Tomato Basil Soup can be found here. The original salad was called Nancy’s Chopped Salad from a 2014 post in the
