The Cast Iron Chef Chronicles MINISODE 5: Southern Pan-Fried Pork Chops
Now this isn't the healthiest recipe, but it is a delicious cheat meal. This is a no fuss meal where you don't need eggs or milk. I learned this Southern classic from my mother and grandmother. It was a Sunday Dinner staple after a long day in church. It's an extremely simple recipe, but so fulfilling and flavorful. Pork chops are cheap, so if you buy a pack split it up in Ziploc bags and freeze the extras. You only need four for this recipe unless you are cooking for a larger family. Have fun with this. You will be done in no time. Happy Cooking! Theme Song by: Van Gammon
The Chronicles of the Cast Iron Chef MINISODE 4: 25 Minute Spaghetti
Spaghetti was the very first dish my mom taught me to make from scratch. It was a special moment in the kitchen that I will never forget. Over the years I've added to the recipe making it my own. I now put in an abundance of vegetables making it more nutritious and hearty. This easy recipe is also the perfect way to hide veggies in your children's foods. You can substitute any kind of pasta if you are not a spaghetti fan. You can also use this sauce as a base for Spaghetti, Lasagna, Stuffed Jumbo Shells, or Chicken Parmesan by eliminating the meat.
