Here's the place to share and explore your next favorite recipe.
That looks good. I might use both processed and hard/real cheese. They work really well together. I can see where all processed would be too much.
Thanks for the pulled pork recipe.....we are headed to the store.....
I had forgotten all about chicken ala king. I don’t think I have made that since my college days in the 70’s. With this economy, that is a great dish to add back in to my cooking routine! Thanks for posting it!
I’m saving this one to try as a base for a white sauce for lasagna. :)
I grabbed your recipe too. We have an assortment of hot peppers that we are planting this season. :)
Thanks for the ping! :)
Hey, young lady — you’ve got more good recipes than Carter’s have little pills. Why not post a couple of them, hmmm?
Bump me in another month or so for recipes. (Do it!) Logging 60+ hour weeks this time of year...and THAT is why I’m posting at nearly 11:30pm on a Saturday Night! Making hay, as they say! My OT this time of year keeps me afloat the other 10 months of the year...
Of course, I’ll be dead before I’m 55, but Eh...it’s a living, LOL! :)
I’m living proof that your lifestyle won’t kill you at 55; just be prepared to make up for the sleep you’ve lost, hour for hour (payback’s a bummer.).
I’ll sleep when I’m dead, LOL! :)
I got my daughter some knock-off Dr. Pepper to try. She didn’t like it, so I searched for recipes to use it in. I found this recipe and it was simple and good. From comments I’ve read, this recipe can be made with cola instead. Some people add onions, but I didn’t think it needed them so I didn’t go to the effort to add them. I also didn’t thicken it as I’m not a fan of cornstarch and I thought it was thick enough. I’ll be making this dish again.
Dr. Pepper Pork Chops
4-6 pork chops
1 can Dr. Pepper
12 oz ketchup or chili sauce
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in the crock pot, and cook on low for 6 hours or until the pork chops are cooked through. Remove the chops and whisk in 1 tablespoon of cornstarch (or flour) to thicken the sauce into a gravy. Serve over rice.
That’s a great donation link - every dime counts!
If I remember I’ll put this up high in next weeks thread. If I forget - please link again.
And the recipe looks awesome too!
