I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Just in Thyme Pork Chops with Apples

I was at my daughter's where she was enhancing my wisdom highlights ; ) in my hair and I mentioned I didn't know what I was going to do with the pork chops I had defrosted for supper.

She said "Got any apples? Make an apple and onion stir fry" 
The wisdom doesn't fall far from the apple tree, these were pretty awesome!


1-2 tsp dried thyme, or 2 tbsps fresh
1 tsp celery seed
pink himalayan salt
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 onions, sliced
2 apples, cut in wedges
8 garlic cloves, divided
3 large pork chops

Heat the veg oil in a large frying pan and toss in the onions and apples. Season with thyme, celery seed and salt. Cook until lightly golden then toss in 4 minced garlic cloves and remove to a plate.

In the same frying pan brown the pork chops on both sides then sprinkle 4 sliced garlic cloves on top. Add more of the seasonings if you like. Can never have too much thyme! Return the onions and apples to the pan on top of the chops, cover and cook on medium heat for 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of your chops.

In the last 3 or 4 minutes flip them and top with arugula before serving.

Another one pot meal....gotta love it!
