Blackberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting



It’s that time of year again! Reds and pinks fill the aisles along with various sugary treats. I always fill compelled to make something festive for the occasion, because I much prefer homemade goodies to store-bought candy (though I do appreciate the nostalgia of conversation hearts!)

Parmesan Pork Chops

Parmesan Pork Chops Recipe

Last week, Mr. Herb shared one of his successful recipes – Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy. It was wonderful to let him cook for a change, and he did a great job! The chops were delicious! Apparently, this put me in the mood for more pork chops, because I bought up a huge pack at the grocery store last week and decided to fix some more (and freeze the rest). This Parmesan pork chop recipe is honestly the only way I’ve ever known to fix pork chops!

My dad taught me to make these when I was in high school. Just like a lot of our favorite dishes, these pork chops are super quick and easy to make, and delicious to boot!

Portland Pie Company

Portland Pie Company Pizza - Restaurant in Portland, Maine

One of our favorite restaurants in Portland, Maine was when we visited Portland Pie Company on New Year’s Eve. This delicious pizzeria claims that “It’s all about the dough.” You get to choose the flavor of your pizza crust! They offer several different flavors of crust: blonde, wheat, garlic, beer, and basil! They also have a gluten-free crust that is flavored with basil and honey.
