Schwartzwald Schnitzel with Carmelized Onions

One of our favorite local restaurants is Rheinblick German Restaurant, serving up all manners of hearty, German fare.  Knockwurst, spaetzel, gluhwein, rouladen — they’re all ready to be eaten! Our favorite by far, however, is schnitzel.  Thin slices of pork (or veal) breaded and fried in butter are served with squeeze of lemon — mmm, oh […]

Lasagne Verdi al Forno: A Daring Baker Challenge

I really enjoy participating in the Daring Bakers because A) I get to try out recipes that I might not normally be drawn to and B) my skills as a home cook are challenged. Some challenges are easy for me, and others make me want to run and hide. I must admit that this month’s […]

Oven-Roasted Maple Chicken ‘n’ Ribs

Someday, I will learn to photograph meat in a way that does not emulate a retro cookbook. Today is not the day. I can say, however, that the recipe is fantastic. The mingling of cider, maple syrup, cinnamon, and star anise with the chicken and pork ribs is irresistible. While everything roasts, the most delicious […]

So pork chops with country gravy are right up my alley. Here, boneless pork chops are lightly coated in seasoned flour, pan-seared until golden brown, and then topped herbed […]

Pork Cutlets with Arugula Salad and sautéed Tomatoes

We had some friends over before we left for Mexico and, overall, I was pleased with this recipe from Everyday Food. The sharp, peppery bite of arugula is set off by the lemon vinagarette and salty parmesean shavings. And the cherry tomatoes — well, a bite into a good tomato is like a bite into […]

Hoisin and Honey Glazed Pork Chops with Three Pea Stir-Fry

These recipes come from Gourmet’s “Everyday Meals,” a cookbook that accompanies a Gourmet subscription. I don’t usually think of myself as ditzy, yet lately, all evidence points to the contrary. There were supposed to be scallions — diagonally cut for maximum effect — with the pork chops and, although I know I put them in […]
