Recipe is from The Chicago Daily News Cook Book published in 1930.  This was absolutely delicious.  I braised the pork in the oven rather than doing it stove top.  Most of the dressing "melted" into the broth during the braising process.  I then reduced the broth on top of the stove… MORE

About Me
My life's work has been retail. I sold my successful retail business in our large university town a few years ago and am searching for my next "career". I spend a large chunk of time searching for and trying new recipes. I have hundreds collected in notebooks and make notes and comments as I cook. I've discovered some true winners!
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new recipes.....from magazines, from friends, from cookbooks (especially antique cookbooks!) My favorite food genres are appetizers and soups,
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a family who love their traditions! So much so that about ten years ago I put together a family cookbook. It includes not only our family's favorite recipes but also all the traditions we celebrate throughout the year.
