Pruney Goodness

I didn't like prunes as a kid but nowadays I love cooking with them. The sticky sweetness adds a great flavor like Crispy Chicken Thighs with Prunes. Served over couscous and it's the perfect meal on a cold night!

My Meatballs Fell Apart...

We LOVE LOVE LOVE Meatballs so when I came across this recipe for Meatballs in Mushroom Sauce, I knew I had to try it. I love the addition of the sweet chili and nutmeg in the sauce! My meatballs ended up falling apart a bit but hey, they all end up in the same place so we didn't mind some meat in the sauce! LOL. I served mine over pasta instead of mashed potatoes cuz I just felt they went better together. No complaints from the hubby!

You don't need a Tagine to make a yummy tagine like Chicken Tagine with Prunes. I omitted the almonds cuz my hubby's not a fan of nuts but it turned out yummy anyway. Such a good combo of sweet and savory and the chicken was so tender from the braising!

Comforting Pork for a Comforting Dinner

Happy March everyone! It's still chilly here in SF so I decided to make a comforting dinner with Pork in a Mustard Cream Sauce. I served the pork with stuffing so what could be more comforting right?


1/2 lb pork, cut into chunks
Salt and pepper
2 Tbsp butter, divided
1/4 c onions, diced
1/4 c dry white wine
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/2 c heavy cream
1 Tbsp mustard


1. Season pork with salt and pepper. Melt 1 Tbsp butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook until browned. Remove and keep warm.

2. Melt remaining butter and add onions. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Slowly add wine and sage. Cook, scraping brown bits from bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon, until wine is reduced by half.

3. Stir in cream and simmer for 5 minutes until sauce is thickened. Stir in mustard and add pork back. Cover and simmer 5 minutes until meat is cooked through.
