Getting that joyous face on the first bite

A face can say so much without a word being spoken. When we sit down for family dinners, I like to sit back a moment and watch as Nancy and Quinn start in. I'm waiting for "that" face, the one where the eyes close and that deep exhalation of satisfaction can be heard. When I get "that" face, I know that the dish is more than good.

These chops and sauce got "that" face.

It wasn't just the perfect sear or the tangy, creamy sauce. It was the combination, greater than individual parts, that came together to take away the cares of the day and brings everyone together for a few minutes of bliss. That face, and everything that comes with it, is one of my great joys in life.

My thanks to, for the recipe that inspired this one.

I served this dish with broccoli roasted with Parmesan and fresh sweet corn.

One chop and sauce is only 201 calories with 7 grams of fat and no fiber.

Let's eat!

Deal of the Day: Amazon has this Pinzon Stainless-Steel Mandoline on sale for nearly 50 percent off. This is a fantastic tool for speeding through the prep for those dishes that require a lot of slicing.

I checked your website and it does indeed sound like something I'd like to try! BF will like the bourbon part. Nice photo of the meal as well.

About Me
I love food! But I let that love get the best of me and my weight ballooned to more than 300 pounds. My wife and I joined Weight Watchers and, over a three-year period, I lost 100 pounds. However, I refused to give up on the foods I love, from Alfredo to cheeseburgers. I set out to find ways to eat almost anything I wanted, but to prepare it in a healthy way. Now, I'm sharing my love of food and cooking with others interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
