Fried Pork Chop
Very good basic recipe. I admit that I made some big changes to the recipe. Also, Iam trying top eat light right now, so I only got a few amazing bites of these off of my finance's plate. But those few bites were awesome! He's asked that I keep this one in my recipe binder. My tweaks: I seasoned the chops with seasoning salt, let them sit in the frige for a couple hours. I used half flour and half corn meal for the breading. Per some other reviewer's advice, I added about 1/4tsp each oregano, fresh rosemary, pepper, and salt to the breading mixture and gave the chops a bath in milk and egg before breading. After breading, I again let them sit in the fridge while I prepped the mashed potatoes and steamed veggies. While the veggies steamed, I heated the oil and fried. Turned out perfectly!

Strawberry Balsamic Chicken
The most delicious sauce EVER. I used a strawberry-basil balsamic vinegar that I found at Target, so mine may have been even better because of this. I cut the recipe in half, but used only one Yoplait Greek 100 Mixed Berry yogurt for the yogurt part. I also added about 1Tbsp of extra white sugar after reducing it and cooked that in. I literally wanted to just lick up the sauce after I reduced it. Instead of just serving it on the chicken next time, I think I'm gonna made rice so that I can get as much of the sauce as possible!

Calypso Black Bean Soup
I added a diced jalepeno to the onion, pepper, and garlic. Also increased the garlic to ~3 cloves. Used three cans of black beans. Halved the Tabasco and added a dash of paprika and cayenne pepper. Only blended 1/2 of the soup and left the other part chunky. Added a handful of chopped cilantro at the end. Topped with fat free plain greek yogurt instead of whipped cream. GREAT! Picky fiance and not-so-picky me both thought it was great. Definitely a keeper.
