Baked Pork Chops

6 pork chops

2 c Italian-style seasoned bread crumbs

1 tsp garlic powder

4 Tbs olive oil

1 tsp seasoning salt

1 (10.75 oz) can cream of mushroom soup

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 c milk

1/4 c all-purpose flour

1/3 c white wine

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse pork chops, pat dry, and season with garlic powder and seasoning salt to taste. Place the beaten eggs in a small bowl. Dredge the pork chops lightly in flour, dip in the egg, and coat liberally with bread crumbs. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the pork chops 5 minutes per side, or until the breading appears well browned. Transfer the chops to a 9x13 inch baking dish, and cover with foil. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. While baking, combine the cream of mushroom soup, milk and white wine in a medium bowl. After the pork chops have baked for an hour, cover them with the soup mixture. Replace foil, and bake for another 30 minutes.

Crunchy French Onion Chicken

1 1/3 c French-fried onions, crushed

1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread crushed onions in a shallow bowl. Pour egg into a separate shallow bowl. Dip chicken into beaten egg, then press into crushed onions. Gently tap chicken to let loose pieces fall away. Put breaded chicken on a baking sheet. Bake chicken until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees.

Chocolate Almond Coconut Bars


1 Tbs coconut oil

1 c sliced toasted almonds

2 Tbs maple syrup

1/4 c unsweetened coconut flakes

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 c raw cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder

generous pinch of salt

1/3 c dried dates, pitted (about 4.25 oz)


2 Tbs maple syrup

1/4 c coconut oil

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 c raw cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 tsp salt

3 Tbs maple syrup


pinch of salt

1/2 c coconut butter

unsweetened coconut flakes, optional

Line a 9x5 in loaf pan with parchment. Make base layer: In a food processor, combine all ingredients and pulse until all ingredients are chopped and combined (donít over mix). Press into an even layer in pan and refrigerate while you make middle layer. Middle layer: Put coconut butter in a bowl. Add remaining middle layer ingredients and stir until well combined (don't over mix.) Spread evenly over crust; cover and refrigerate while you make frosting. Frosting: If your coconut oil is solid, place in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 10-second intervals just until itís melted. Add remaining frosting ingredients (except coconut flakes) and stir until smooth. (If the other ingredients are cold and the frosting seizes when you combine them, microwave in 10-second intervals until itís melted and smooth.) Pour over coconut layer and quickly spread. Sprinkle with coconut flakes, if desired. Cover and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour. To slice, use parchment to lift out of pan. Run a chefís knife under hot water and wipe dry; use hot knife to cut bars into pieces on a cutting board and serve. Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
