Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy

Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy Recipe


I, Mr. Herb, decided to make dinner one night for my better half and had a small dilemma.  I am not sure about you but sometimes I get tired of chicken every night.  So, for this recipe I turned to the pig – pork chops- that is!

Easy Chicken Roll-Ups

Chicken Roll-Ups


I’ve made several versions of this simple chicken dish, but this recipe came from my awesome sister-in-law, Jennifer.  With just a handful of ingredients and a fairly short cooking time, this recipe is so simple to make on a busy weeknight.  Serve it up with some green beans or steamed broccoli and a sweet potato and you have a hearty, nutritious meal!  This recipe makes 8 roll-ups, which was more than enough for my husband and me, but you could certainly double the recipe and make 16.

How do you eat your Oreos? Are you a milk dipper? Do you take yours apart and lick all the cream off the insides? Herb is definitely a dipper, while I prefer to take mine apart and eat them in tiny bites (gotta spread out the goodness!)

Chocolate Syrup Substitute

Earlier this week, I made my own cream of chicken substitute.  In the spirit of homemade substitutes, I also made my own chocolate syrup.  However, I basically took all the homemade chocolate syrup recipes I found online and combined them to make my own.  The result has been quite tasty!

I would love to have the time, money, and self-discipline to eat nothing but all natural, whole foods…but in reality, I just can’t do it. I try to get recommended organic food (especially meats, certain fruits, and dairy products) and my husband and I both think that checking ingredients is very important. If the ingredients are few and easy to pronounce, then we’re usually confident. Therefore, I have been getting a little weirded out by cream of ANYTHING soups.

The Dillard House

In Dillard, Georgia, not very far from the North Carolina border, is a wonderful place called The Dillard House.

The Dillard House is a delicious restaurant (the topic of this post), but it is also so much more. There are rooms, suites, cottages, chalets, beautiful views of the countryside, and horses, goats, and other animals that roam nearby.

Who loves game night?! We do!! Recently we had dinner and game night at Herb’s cousin’s house with some friends. She made some awesome chicken noodle soup, and I made broccoli cheese soup.

We had an awesome time and LOTS of laughs playing Cranium and Apples to Apples with everyone. It was great!
