You should probably serve this with something healthy, like a green starter salad. Or, you could just grab a fork and eat the whole darn thing yourself straight out of the pan, it’s that good!
A really easy way to do something different with your pork chops on a weeknight: transform them with just a spoonful of apple sauce and a cheese slice
This is a simple beef stew with an incredible sauce. We often turn it into a pie by covering the cooked stew with a pastry crust and baking a bit.
Half the people reading this recipe will be smacking their lips; the other half will have already recoiled in horror! Broccoli, blue cheese — you either love ’em or you hate ’em!
Very easy, and kids can help with the assembly part. You can make the tortilla bowls up to a day ahead.
This is a surprisingly easy dish considering the amazing flavours in it. The dish also provides a wonderful sauce, so make a vegetable side — such as broccoli, cauliflower, mashed potato, etc — to pour the sauce onto: you won’t want to waste a drop of this sauce.
A classic, North American version of a Swiss cheese fondue. Though fondues were overdone in the 1970s and 1980s to the pointy of being seen as kitschy, when you make up a classic version like this one you understand why they gained the popularity they did.

Gorgeously-flavoured chunks of moist pork, infused with the flavour of corn from the corn hunks they are bundled in for cooking. And they look stunning, too.
This hash is a fantastic way to use up leftover meatloaf and get an extra meal out of it. This is good as a light supper.
This glaze for baked ham has a robust, tart taste to it that makes a welcome change from the usual overly sweet, unhealthy, sugar-laden glazes that are put on hams. Its slight tartness really compliments the saltiness of the ham.

A really great twist on roast chicken, instead of the same old, same old. And it actually uses enough of a fresh herb that it’s worth buying from the store, for once.
This is a summer recipe; make when the tomatoes are at their best and fresh basil is plentiful and inexpensive.
Yorkshire puddings are one of those things that are meant to be cheap fillers to fill people up at the table — that instead, everyone treats as a featured dish and can’t get enough of.
