Recipe News: Simple, light pork chop recipe for spring

Spring is in the air and I have got a great, light recipe here that you will go to several times this spring and summer season.

I can’t remember what cookbook I got the idea for this rice dish from but the first time I made it had to be at least 12 years ago.

I am notorious for not being able to follow a recipe verbatim and have changed this recipe by adding ingredients, which have made this dish unique and delicious. What I love about this rice dish is it can be served with anything from these simple and light pork chops to beef bourguignon. And although there is butter, cream and cheese in this dish it is not at all heavy and very light in flavor.

As for these pork chops they are a great idea for a weeknight meal because they cook up so quickly and are so full of flavor. Enjoy!

  • Lemon-Thyme Pork Chops

  • Lemon Rice

Recipe News: Crock-Pot recipes for single eaters

ingles and households of two don't have an easy time with most cookbooks. Recipes are usually tailored for four, six, sometimes even eight servings, and a lot of conveniences are not all that convenient for them. The slow cooker, friend of busy people who want to come home to a ready-to-eat hot meal, is one of the utensils pretty much out of their reach, unless they like a lot of leftovers. Bay Area award-winning cookbook author Beth Hensperger has taken pity upon this group and has written a follow-up of her well-received "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook," published two years ago. The new book is, a little confusingly, called "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes for Two," and is crafted exclusively for the small crock pot of anywhere from 1 1/2 to 3-quart capacity.

Includes recipe for:


  • Chicken Mole

Recipe News: A bowl of red

How about "dough well done with cow to cover", a bowl of "birdseed" or "put the lights out and cry"? Baffled? That's the slang used in American diners for buttered toast, cereal and liver and onions.

The colourful lingo and decor of diners, with its affordable, delicious food is celebrated by Jennifer Joyce in her new book Diner.

She says: "The British have fish and chip shops, the French bistros, and the Americans diners" and describes it as "pure comfort food." Here's a recipe.

  • A BOWL OF RED

NYTimes: Cheap Wine Works Fine


The New York Times Dining and Wine section has in interesting write up on cooking with wine. Julia Child once said "If you do not have a good wine to use, it is far better to omit it, for a poor one can spoil a simple dish and utterly debase a noble one." That was in a time before good quality table wines were common though. Does what she says still hold water today? According the the Times writer:

Over all, wines that I would have poured down the drain rather than sip from a glass were improved by the cooking process, revealing qualities that were neutral at worst and delightful at best. On the other hand, wines of complexity and finesse were flattened by cooking — or, worse, concentrated by it, taking on big, cartoonish qualities that made them less than appetizing.

Includes recipes for:


  • Risotto al Barolo

  • Sauternes Custard

  • Port-Braised Duck Legs With Black Pepper and Dried Cherries

Recipe News: Pork recipes: The start of a great dinner

They call me Pork Boy, and as far as I'm concerned, the Year of the Pig couldn't have come at a better time. At long last, after decades of abuse, my favorite meat is again getting a little love.

I come by my nickname honestly. It's a rare week that goes by at my house when I don't fix pork in some form or another. In fact, I'll bet if you added it all up, I probably cook as much pork as I I do all other meats combined.

  • FIVE-SPICE ROAST PORK BELLY

Food News: Trans Fat Fight Claims Butter as a Victim

Not all trans fat is created equally, but to the FDA and for labeling purposes, natural and artificial trans fats are all the same, forcing a lot of bakers to actually use artificial instead of natural ingredients to hit the "trans fat free" label that chains like Starbucks are demanding from their foods.

Some researchers believe that the trans fat that occurs naturally in butter, meat, milk and cheese might actually be healthy. But to satisfy companies that want to call their foods completely free of trans fats, bakers like Mr. Reich are altering serving sizes, cutting back on butter and in some cases using ingredients like trans fat-free margarine.

Mr. Reich still uses butter for many of his clients, but he has had to adjust what he bakes for almost 500 Starbucks stores from Philadelphia to Hartford.

Recipe News: Whip up tasty meals with leftover recipes

Every week when I start pulling together the recipes I want to put into my columns, I end up with at least two or three that don’t seem to fit anywhere. They’re good recipes, great even, but they somehow seem to just miss fitting into the specific parameters of the topic.

So into the “I-don’t-know-what-to-do-with-you file” they go. They sit patiently waiting for the right column topic to present itself. Sometimes they sit for years, just waiting for their chance to shine. This week, it suddenly dawned on me that these recipes were in themselves a column.

Includes recipes for:


  • Burger and French Fry Pie

  • Turkey Veggie Burger with Avocado Mayonnaise

  • Ranch Stuffed Garden Potatoes

  • Open Faced Potato and Broccoli Omelet

  • Strawberries with Chocolate Caramel Sauce
