Pork Chops

These pork chops are very tender and have a great flavor. I usually serve them with potatoes and a vegetable. Our favorite (me and the kids) is corn. :)

Pork Chops

2 Pork Chops
Soya Sauce
1 Egg
1 Tbsp. Whipping Cream
Bread or Cracker Crumbs
2 tins Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 tin Whipping Cream or Milk

Poke pork chops with a fork. Marinade chops in soya sauce for about 4 hours. Mix together egg and cream. Dip chops into egg mixture, then dip into bread or cracker crumbs. Fry in greased skillet until brown on bowl sides. Place chops into roaster or pan and cover with mushroom soup mixed with whipping cream or milk. Bake at 350oF for about 2 hours. You can use the gravy to put onto potatoes. Enjoy! :)

Blueberry Bran Muffins

I made these muffins for my kids this morning for breakfast. They are so delicious!! I use my own homemade yogurt (recipe will be posted in a future post), but you can use any kind of yogurt, any flavor works. I've done that too.

Blueberry (Saskatoon ;)) Bran Muffins

2 cups Yogurt
2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 cup Oil
2 cups Bran
2 tsp. Vanilla
2 cups Flour
4 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 cups Blueberries (or Saskatoons, they are my favorite!)

Measure yogurt and baking soda. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat sugar, eggs and oil. Add bran and vanilla. Sift flour, baking powder and salt (I didn't sift my ingredients, just dumped them in). Add to sugar mixture after, with yogurt. Fold in blueberries. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

How do you eat your muffins? With butter or plain? I eat them plain. I split them and eat the bottom first and then the top. My kids do the same thing. ;) Enjoy!!

As a family, we really like these breadsticks. I usually make them when we have lasagna or Spaghetti & Meatballs. Sometimes in the winter, I'll make them for our evening company and serve them with Hot Pizza Sauce or Alfredo Sauce. I bake them in my pampered chef pan, you can use a regular pan too, but those who know me, know how much I love my PC pans ;)


2 Tbsp. Instant Yeast
3 ¼ cup Flour
2 Tbsp. Sugar
½ tsp. Salt
1 ½ cups hot Water
1/3 cup Garlic Spread, melted

Mix yeast with 2 ½ cups flour, sugar and salt. Add hot water. Stir until dough holds together. Add rest of flour or more. Kneed until smooth. Spread dough onto a cookie sheet. Brush on garlic spread. Cut into slices (about ¾" thick). Let rise for about 10 minutes (will rise more as it bakes). Bake at 450F for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Pull apart and serve hot.



I am a wife and stay-at-home mom of three kids. I enjoy finding new recipes and have LOTS of them to share. So, I thought I'd start sharing my recipes with you. If I get around to it, I'll try to take pictures of the finished product to post along with my recipe. If not, you'll have to use your imaginations ;)
