Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce
This recipe is so easy and so adaptable. I have made it with all different kinds of juice, all different kinds of jam, and last night when I discovered I was out of jam I made it with a handful of fresh raspberries and a spoonful of sugar. It still came out fantastic and even a wonderful consistency! It takes only a few minutes to through together and is super easy, but gives spectacular results. I agree with other reviewers on adding a bit of cold butter to the simmering sauce helps give it a satiny finish that just tastes better (although it's certainly not necessary, it IS good.) Otherwise just be careful not to overcook the pork and you can't lose wih this one. Yum!

Marinated Flank Steak
I don't know wat makes this marinade so much tastier than other, similar recipes, but it absolutely IS!! It's the only one I ever use now. Sometimes I will sub red wine AND vinegar for the red wine vinegar, but otherwise no changes. It's perfect. Try it with a cheap skirt steak, marinate overnight, and grill just a few minutes each side before slicing against the grain. Delicious!!

Jim's Cheddar Onion Soda Bread
INCREDIBLE!! Now, I did make a few very minor changes because of what I had in the house, like using all purpose flour. I used dried white / green onions, I doubled the baking powder, and I used about 3/4 c. milk with vinegar in it to sour it. But all those substitutions are basic and should not change the flavor or texture much. This bread is AWESOME. It came together so easily! Puffed right up, took 5 minutes to throw together, and baked while I made dinner. Everyone loved it. I love that it uses things I normally have in the house and is so quick and easy, not to mention delicious. A winner for sure! I let my dough sit for 5 minutes on the tray before baking to help it rise, I don't know know if that makes a difference but it can't hurt. Definitely try this. Yum!
