Pork Chops and Cotija Corn Puree with Radish, Cucumber, and Lime Salad

This pork chop meal was absolutely delightful!  Not only was it incredibly easy to make {in less than an hour!}, but it was so perfect for a gorgeous summer evening.  I’m not a big fan of cucumbers {I think I’m cucumber-traumatized from our huge juicing fail} or radishes, but the lime juice in the salad gave them that special zest that made me enjoy them.  I ate a bite of salad with each bite of pork chop and the cool citrus salad offset the spicy pork perfectly.  I very highly recommend this delicious meal for a weeknight dinner!

Whole-Wheat Almond-Butter Sandwich Cookies

Almond butter.  I’ve always wondered, “Why all the fuss?”  Well, I tried it for the first time a few weeks ago when a friend brought it to work as a dip for her veggies and crackers.  I’ve never liked almonds so I didn’t have high expectations for “butter” made from them.  Sadly, my expectations were correct when I ate a dollop on a cracker.  It just tasted so boring and bland to me, but I’ll gladly admit that this was probably due to my overly sugar addicted taste buds.

I thought it might be a good time to try almond butter again since Justin and I have been about 90% sugar free for 2 months now {we stopped eating high carb foods and anything with added sugar}.  I’m happy I didn’t completely write it off because this cookie recipe was delicious and the filling was just amazing…cream cheese, honey, and vanilla, oh my!  I still dislike the taste of raw almonds, but I definitely like them blended and cooked into other things!  {I plan on making this recipe for Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups with my left over almond butter and then maybe this one for Almond Soba Noodles too.}

*Not only were these {air quote} healthy {air quote} cookies delicious, but they were fun to make as well.  I can see this being a great recipe to make with a “mini” chef…kids would have a great time making the cookies into sandwiches!

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These.  Are.  The.  Best.  Cookies.  EVER.

I mean, there are some AMAZING cookies out there…but when it comes to your classic chocolate chip cookie, this one is my absolute favorite.  They are chewy, slightly peanut buttery, and choc full of chocolate bits.

*Justin is the baker in our house and he never lets me down.  Here are a few of my other favorites that he’s mastered…

Beef Burritos with Poblano Queso

I love, love, looooove burritos.  Breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  No matter.  All burritos are amazing in my book and great when eaten for any meal.  I found this recipe from Laura at Tide and Thyme {she found the original recipe from Elly at Elly Says Opa!} and we made a few adjustments.  I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to spicy foods and these burritos have just the perfect amount of zest to ‘em.

A funny thing…both Laura and Elly must have magic burrito fingers.  We’ve made these a half dozen times now and I can never get them all long and skinny like those ladies do.  In true TiAn form, my burritos come out all short and stubby.  {Hey, they still taste amazing.}  They’re not healthy.  They’re not paleo, low-carb, or free of anything really.  They are however, damn delicious.  Make them.  You know you want to…

Sun-Dried Tomato Soup with Prosciutto & Avocado Grilled Cheese Sandwich

A few months ago I purchased a cookbook titled “Williams-Sonoma Soup of the Day, 365 Recipes for Every Day of the Year” by Kate McMillan.  We’ve only made a handful of recipes from this book so far, but every single one of them has been absolutely delicious and really, really easy to make.  {I posted this Chorizo and Chicken Stew with Avocado Crema last October.}

We were browsing through the book for a delicious soup to make when my eyes got really wide after coming to a page with this sun-dried tomato recipe.  It had some beautiful lumps of crab on top of it.  I would have never thought to add that to a soup like this, but the crab meat was amazing on top of the soup!  The mild flavor of the crab went so well with the strong flavors of the soup.  And as for the grilled cheese sandwich…it is definitely the best one I’ve ever had.  Justin crusted both slices of bread with Parmesan cheese for a little added crispiness and the avocado and prosciutto were delicious with the cheese.
