Welcome to my personal recipe share page. All the recipes found here are all tried and true. Some have been shared by friends and some are old family recipes. Others I've found on cooking sites, web pages and in cook books. All have been tweaked to my families liking. Please note that I don't create my own recipes and I'm not taking credit for others recipes. I'm simply sharing what has worked for us and sharing our favorites. Since I know how much I enjoy new and exciting recipes, I thought I would share them with the world! I get tired of making the same dish time and time again. It's true that while something is worthy of being enjoyed frequently, the same rotation gets old fast. The recipes you will find here, for the most part, are simple to create with easy to come by ingredients. While there may be the recipe that requires a little more effort, I can assure you that it will be worth it. There will also be plenty of crock pot creations for you to choose from. I hope that you find something here that appeals to you and that you will share your favorites with me. Enjoy and Bon Appetite!

Sweet 'N' Sour Pork Chops

(Thank You Rachel for this delicious recipe! Rachel found this in Taste of Home and shared it with us. It was declared a keeper by my husband. Kaeleb asked for more "sauce" on top of his pork, while finicky Ms. Kaytlyn didn't care for the sauce as much.)
Here's is what I did:

1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, un drained
2 cups honey barbecue sauce
1 chopped onion
4 tablespoons chili sauce
8 boneless, lean pork chops (2 to 3 lbs)

In a bowl, combine the pineapple, barbecue sauce, onion and chili sauce. Pour half into a greased slow cooker. Top with pork chops and remaining sauce. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours or until meat is tender.

*Note* I think this would be great with pork loin or even chicken. I served it with corn and mashed potatoes so that we could also use the fantastic liquid as a topping for them.
