Zucchini Brownies
Are you kidding me??? These are fantastic!! No yelling people about my substitutions--It's all I had in the house!! I substituted most of the oil with pureed baby-food prunes (just under 1/2 a cup worth) I added 1 Tablespoon of vegetable oil. I have a no-nut family so I used the tiny, tiny nestle chocolate chips instead. I only had brown sugar so thats what I used and added slightly more vanilla to hopefully counteract the molasses taste you sometimes get from brown sugar. When they came out of the oven--I sprinkled the top with about 1/4-1/2 cup of the tiny chocolate chips b/c i didn't want the extra calories from the frosting and because I was starting to second-guess myself about the prunes. When cooled only about 5 minutes--i thought they were good but with a slight prune 'kick" . Today--they were fantastic--you couldn't taste anything remotely off--the chocolate chips really added to the brownie feel! My only concern is to keep the fam from eating them in one sitting which could cause them to be sitting on another type of seat in our house :O)

Baked Pork Chops I
ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!!!?? These porkchops are AWESOME----even if you don't have EVERYTHING on the ingredient list! I absolutely HATE cooking pork, I rarely make it and, except for a man-revolt at my house against chicken,I would not have tried this recipe. I had five boneless pork chops, washed and seasoned them with a pinch of salt,cracked black pepper, a pinch of cayenne and a pinch of paprika on each. (I had absolutely no garlic in the house) Made and egg and milk wash, a bowl of flour and a bowl of italian breadcrumbs. Dredged in the flour first, then the wash, and finally the breadcrumbs. My gosh! Frying them in the hot oil (all I had was extra virgin Olive Oil) they smelled INCREDIBLE and the coating was brown, beautiful and crispy! I put the chops in the oven with a tight covering of aluminum foil. After about 35 minutes (i used other reviewers cooking times) I took them out of the oven and made a "sauce" out of what I had available---cream of chicken soup. I added 3/4 can of milk , stirred and put it quickley through a strainer--to get the chicken out(it just seemed WRONG to have those floating on pork) I grinded ALOT of black pepper--I was maybe trying to go for a more country fried steak type of gravy? I had NO wine, No apple juice,No Substitute. Anyway , I poured this over the chops and back in the oven for another 25 minutes. TENDER! The guys said they were the best EVER! I'm still in shock! I will try the original recipe after shopping next time
