Pork Chops Milanese

I planned on making these for dinner last night but my husband has been really sick all week and last night was the first of any appetite he's had so I didn't necessarily want to make this. I could have easily just reduced the recipe and made it for myself it just didn't seem that appealing. Anyway, we've had this a few times and I never remember to blog it so here it is. I'll post the picture when I find it around here somewhere!

Ingredients
1 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan
2 large eggs
6 boneless pork loin chops, pounded thin to 1/3 inch-thick (1 1/2 pounds total)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons olive oil
6 lemon wedges

-Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
-Coarsely crush the panko into a large shallow bowl.
-Stir the cheese into the panko.
-Lightly beat the eggs in another large shallow bowl.
-Sprinkle the pork generously with salt and pepper.
-Dip the pork, 1 piece at a time, in the egg, allowing the excess to drip off, then dredge the pork in the crumb mixture, patting to coat completely.
-Place the pork on a small baking sheet.
-Heat 1/4 cup of oil in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.
-Add half of the pork to the hot oil and cook until golden brown and just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.
-Transfer to paper towels to drain, then transfer them to a clean baking sheet and keep them warm in the oven.
-Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil to the skillet and fry the remaining pork.
-Transfer the pork to plates and serve with lemon wedges.

Beach Party Cupcakes AND 100th Blog Post

I saw these cupcake pops on Bakerella's site and just knew I had to use the idea sometime. When thinking about something fun to make for 4th of July I thought about something summery that the kids would enjoy so obviously a cute cupcake would do the trick and what's more fun in the summer than fireworks and swimming? Not much, I'll tell you that! Knowing that everything is fireworks galore on the 4th I decided to go the swimming route and make these cupcakes. Not only were they adorable, it really only took an extra 10 minutes to decorate than if I were to frost a plain-jane cupcake. Surf's Up! (aw man, I wish I had made some surfin little dudes! I'll have to remember that for next time!)

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

Nutella Cannoli

Nutella is something that I love, but honestly don't really eat or bake with that often, always regretting that fact each time I eat something with Nutella. Well, I am vowing to change my ways - starting with these Cannolis!  They're definitely not a traditional cannoli as the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream make them more like a cheesecake filling, or even mousse, but the cannoli shell makes them easy to grab and eat.  No fork required - my kind of dessert!


Usually I prefer to make mini cannolis because sometimes full ones are just too rich for me, however any recipe could easily be adapted to a regular cannoli shell size (or mini size if the case may be).  The combination of the cream cheese, whipped cream and Nutella definitely made these a rich bite-size dessert, that I think may become one of my go-to recipes when I need to make something quick and impressive.
