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

Low-and-Slow Pork Roast

  I have a bunch of pork roast recipes, a repository of which, including this one, can be found here.  In most cases, I am using what is referred to as a Boston Butt or pork blade roast, because the cut includes part of the animal’s shoulder blade.  It is also sometimes called a pork

Weekday Chicken in the Oven Recipes

People run pretty hard during the week and so, given the incredible versatility of chicken, it isn’t surprising that just about everyone has at least one, if not several, go-to chicken recipes that can be prepared quickly and popped in the oven for an easy weeknight supper. Here are a couple that we’ve been making

Swiss Steak in a Crock Pot

The great thing about the Internet is that there is a lot of information to choose from.  The bad thing about the Internet is there is a lot of misinformation to choose from.  Case in point here.  Search for a Swiss Steak recipe and you’ll find a very wide array of options, many of which

Mediterranean Pork Chops

I was looking for something other than a baked or oven-fried pork chop last night, and this is what I created on the spur of the moment.  You will need a cast iron skillet for this dish, or some other vessel that can go from stove top to a four-hundred degree oven.  This recipe also

Country Style Pork Ribs on a Gas Grill

Some time ago, I posted a crock pot recipe for a cut of pork generally called Country Style Ribs, or sometimes referred to as Picnic Ribs.  They are not real ribs, as I explained in that post found here: Crock Pot Asian Style Country Ribs. On this occasion, I wanted something more akin to a

Broiled Salmon with Avocado Cream Sauce

This is more about the sauce than the salmon.  This velvety green concoction is versatile enough that it would serve many purposes, and would be great on scallops or other kinds of broiled or pan-seared fish, or even as a creamy salad dressing.  I just happened to have purchased salmon for last evening’s meal.  In

Low Carb Copycat Taco Seasoning

There’s about a billion ways to make a Taco Salad. They were purportedly first served as “Ta-Cups” at Disneyland in Anaheim, California in 1955, created by the original inventor of Fritos Corn Chips, Elmer Doolin. That’s at least the official version of the story from a 2013 book, Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America.

Low Carb Copycat Shake ‘n Bake Pork Chops

Shake ‘n Bake has been around since 1965 and was first introduced by General Foods.  General Foods was acquired by Philip Morris in 1985.  Three years later, Philip Morris acquired Kraft and in 1990 merged the two food companies to become Kraft General Foods.  The original General Foods Company is kaput. The idea of Shake

“Oven Barbecue” Pulled Pork

I’ve already defended myself against the merits and demerits of calling something cooked in an oven “barbecued”, when in fact it isn’t.  Read my arguments in the posting “Oven Barbecue” Beef Brisket found here.  Blah. Blah. Blah. This is really yet another braised pork butt recipe, of which I have a considerable number.  You can

Alpha-Uno Steak Sauce

This started as a copycat recipe for A-1 Steak Sauce.  You can search the internet and find the recipe everywhere and all are identical.  But I don’t really understand the need to make something identical to a sauce that is readily available, both in the grocery store and in my pantry.  We’re never without it


Moussaka is something of a national dish in Greece, but it is thought to have actually originated in Arabia when eggplant found its way into that country from sub-Saharan Africa.  The dish migrated throughout the Middle East and the first known recipe was published in a Turkish cookbook in the very late nineteenth century.  Via
