Pork Chops – Fake ‘n Bake Style

By Heather Solos | October 26, 2007

Dear Home Ec 101, I was hoping to do something with pork chops this week too, they are on sale. Do you do anything special to them, or just bake them straight up? Can anyone point me to a good pork chop recipe or pork roast (but not loin) recipe? Puzzled by Pork Heather says:…

Simple Philly Skillet

By Heather Solos | January 29, 2013

Heather says: This simple Philly skillet is another in my impromptu, unorganized, and a johnny-come-lately decision to dive into cooking basics here on Home-Ec 101.

Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

By Heather Solos | May 2, 2011

Leek and Potato Soup

Leek and Potato Soup

By Heather Solos | January 5, 2010

Heather says: As part of our attempt to eat more seasonally, we’re also trying new -to us anyway- vegetables. I know leeks aren’t at all uncommon and taste-wise they are simply a milder green onion, it was just nothing I’ve ever had much reason to experiment with. This soup has a flavor that suggests there…

By Bobbie | June 15, 2011

Bobbie says: I had a craving for Tuna Macaroni Salad today*, and since it’s a perfect hot weather main-dish salad, I thought I’d share it with you, too. I’ve based this on the way my mom used to make it, but Mom never followed a recipe, so I’ve come up with my own proportions. Also,…
