Grandpa’s Got the Blues – Crock Pot Pork Chops Recipe


I know many of you really like crock pot recipes, so I’ve been after my husband to develop more recipes using our crock pot. What he came up with pretty much blew me away: Grandpa’s Got the Blues – Crock Pot Pork Chops. The pork is tender and incredibly flavorful and the sauce is amazing over mashed potatoes. This recipe does use our Grandpa’s Best products, but you really can’t go wrong. Oh! And there’s a video for this one. Enjoy!

From My Husband’s Kitchen – Black Garlic and Truffle Oil Mashed Potatoes

 

Mashed potatoes are good.  Garlic mashed potatoes are even better.  Black garlic and truffle oil mashed potatoes are ORGASMIC!  The only thing I have negative to say about these mashed potatoes is that I never want to stop eating them.  Enjoy!  I know I’m enjoying the hell out of these.

From My Husband’s Kitchen: Black Garlic Mushroom Risotto

 

My husband has been experimenting with recipes for black garlic, and this is the very first of many to come.  We make black garlic for our business (Mac Brothers Gourmet Foods), and are very enamored with black garlic ourselves. We use it at home all the time and love the taste.  One of the questions we get is what to do with black garlic.  Because of this, Gary has decided to create a bunch of recipes using the stuff. Instead of just telling people, “we use it in everything”, we thought actual recipes would be much better.  When people are unfamiliar with an ingredient, it’s better to have actual recipes.

This recipe for black garlic mushroom risotto is simply wonderful!  This is a vegetarian side dish recipe that you can easily turn into a main dish simply by adding some shrimp, chicken or tofu.  Enjoy!

My Favorite Way to Make Zucchini and Summer Squash

 

After a long hiatus, my hubby finally posted something new on his food blog, A Real Dad Makes Real Food.  He’s a great cook and I’ve been bugging him to write up more of his recipes.  This one, grilled zucchini and summer squash, is one of my favorite summer vegetable dishes.  Not only do I devour this warm, I love putting cold leftovers in my salads the next day.

Do THIS To Get A Spectacular Tasting Turkey for Thanksgiving

 

I’ve hear so many people say they don’t like turkey because it’s dry.  And then I’ve heard all sorts of crazy recipes for keeping your bird moist.  Some work.  Some don’t.  However, I have a fool proof way to keep your turkey moist and delicious this Thanksgiving.

Well, I can’t actually take credit for this idea.  My husband, Gary, is the cook in this family.  I shop, and he does all the cooking, which works just fine for me.  If you’re not familiar with it, Gary has a blog called A Real Dad Makes Real Food.  He publishes original recipes for all sorts of things including meats, seafood, side dishes and desserts.  Three years ago, he publish this recipe for brining turkey.  Gary swears by brining meats like poultry and pork to keep them moist and delicious.  Even accidentally overcooking the turkey won’t matter too, too much if you brine the turkey first.

 

Brining isn’t difficult; it just adds an extra step to your Thanksgiving preparation.  However, the results are completely worth the extra small amount of work.  Enjoy!
