Oven Brown Rice
This rice was fantastic. We eat a lot of brown rice in my family and I've been looking for different ways to prepare it and make it more flavorful. I did make some changes to this recipe to kick up the flavor and make it healthier. I sauteed chopped onion and chopped fresh mushrooms in a small pat of butter and a little EVOO until tender and then added that to the mix of ingredients. I also added a couple of cloves of minced garlic and omitted most of the butter and all of the salt. Let me tell you how unbelievable the house smelled!! This recipe was very very good! It isn't very quick but it is a good recipe in the winter when you're already roasting or baking dinner in the oven.

Brazilian Black Bean Stew
When I saw this recipe I thought to myself "I have to make this." Not because I thought it sounded delicious or because it was the perfect recipe I was looking for but simply because the combination of ingredients seemed so strange. I was definitely skeptical but trust me this recipe is fabulous!! It was even better the next day as leftovers for lunch. I didn't use the ham just because I didn't have any but other than that for the most part I followed the recipe. I highly recommend this recipe, don't let the mix of ingredients scare you off you will be pleasantly surprised.

Golden Pork Chops
I gave 4 stars because this is an awesome Base recipe and so easy. I read a lot of the other reviews and adapted many of the ideas. I saueteed 1 large chopped onion and 1 package of mushrooms in EVOO with a little bit of butter until theedges were getting browned. When they were just about done I added 2 minced garlic clovesnad just cooked until fragrant. I added the sauteed mix to a bowl with 1 can of Golden Mushroom soup, 1/4 C water & 1/4 C lowfat milk and some spices: 1tsp dried thyme, 1/2 tspn oregano (or Italian Seasoning) 1/2 tspn ginger, S&P and a few dashes of hot sauce. I seasoned the pork chops (boneless sirloin chops) with a little garlic powder, onion powder & S&P then sauteed the pork chops lightly on both sides in the same pan. Placed the chops in a baking dish and poured the soup mix over them evenly and baked covered for about 30 minutes then uncovered for another 10 minutes. The great thing about this is the Deeeelicious sauce!! I made a pot of brown rice and added the leftover gravy to the rice for my lunch the next day & it was soooo good!
