Working as a personal chef, these pork chops were a requested recipe among the males in households where I used to cook. It requires about an hour in the oven, but it needs no tending, so you are free to go on with other business. It is a rich dish, so I like to serve it over a bed of simply sautéed spinach; the sour cream sauce blends to create a creamed spinach base for the pork chops. This dish also freezes well – sans the spinach – prepare that fresh right before serving.
This is an uncooked pasta sauce from Puglia region of Italy that makes the best use of summer ripe tomatoes. It is important to use either the green onion or garlic, but do not use both. Serve the pasta hot and the sauce at room temperature to maintain the fresh, vibrant quality of the dish.
Ful is a traditional Middle Eastern breakfast meal. It is a stick to your ribs breakfast and makes a warm light vegetarian dinner. Ful Medames, also know as Egyptian Fava Beans, may be found in many supermarkets, and at many international markets.
This chicken dish hails from when I was working as a personal chef. The sauce was stored separate from the chicken in the refrigerator and clients could simply arrive home, warm the chicken and the sauce then dress with the fresh basil and lemon zest right before serving. I also found that the dish was one that froze well, and I would package single serving portions that could be pulled from the freezer when needed. I recommend that entrées stored in the freezer be used within 1 to 2 weeks for best results.
