Cola Pork Chops
Loved this with a few minor changes. Like many others, I salted and dusted my chops with flour and browned them a few minutes first. I used Pepsi since it is what I had on hand. Instead of getting another dish dirty, I added the sauce to my skillet on the stove. I covered it up and turned it down to a low simmer and cooked half an hour or so. Served with white rice. This really reminded me of sweet and sour pork. I am making this again soon and I am going to try cutting the pork into smaller pieces before cooking to see how that works. It was just slightly messy to be trying to cut up the pork chop while it was sliding around on the rice in all that sauce.

Sloppy Joes II
4 stars as written, but easy to turn into 5 stars! Original recipe needs more sauce. To turn it into 5 stars, use an entire small onion and bell pepper. Double the sauce ingredients and sub up to 1/2 cup of the ketchup (1.5 cups total) with bbq sauce. Adjust brown sugar depending on how sweet your bbq sauce is. We used a honey chipotle to add a bit of heat.

Baked Whole Cauliflower
Like many of the other reviewers, I cut my cauliflower up into small florets first. I put into a pot and added a can of chicken broth. Covered and boiled for about 10 minutes - or until they were just tender, but not mushy. Stir occasionally to check the doneness. I used italian seasoned bread crumbs. I used closer to 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese (from a can). I probably added a bit more garlic powder. I used cayenne instead of red pepper flakes and left out the oregano. I probably also increased it to 1/2 - 1 tsp of salt also. I melted the butter and tossed everything together and put it in a pan to bake. After about 10 minutes in the oven, I stirred it to expose the other side of the cauliflower and then put back in for about 5 minutes. It needed just a bit more browing, so I stuck it under the broiler for a minute at the end. **I had a hard time imagining what this was going to taste like. I have to say the closest thing I can think of is maybe the breadsticks from CiCi's Pizza. They are soft, and you can really taste the italian seasoning, the garlic, and the parmesan. It was only on the larger florets that I even got much cauliflower taste at all.
