Pork Chops with Delicious Gravy
Very Good and super easy! I made this just because I had all the ingredients and my family devoured it! I doubled the gravy and subst. real maple syrup for the honey. I also seasoned the chops with lemon pepper and lawrys. This is a keeper!

Sesame Broccoli Salad
I really liked this! I changed a couple things. I used raw broccoli and I used applecider vinegar because I did not have rice vinegar, I tripled the sugar, and used half the amount of sesame oil. I also added a couple dashes of powdered ginger and garlic. It tasted wonderful! I actually couldn't stop eating the broccoli straight out of the freshly made marinade..yummy and refreshing!

Blackened Shrimp Stroganoff
This is a KEEPER! My whole family including 2 girls ages 6 and 4 loved it! The sauce was delicate and creamy, but not thick or too rich. It coated the noodles lightly. I made some changes because we did not have some ingredients. I used frozen precooked tailess shrimp and frozen peas. I sauted my onion instead of a scallion and added 2 garlic cloves. I used the broth, then added the mix of cornstarch, light sour cream, and broth. I had to simmer this for a few minutes for it to thicken (it was still runny- but perfect for us!). Then I added the shrimp and peas and 2T of fresh parsley. I served it with garlic bread and it would also go well with a green salad. Yumm-O!
