Heat a large skillet to medium high heat, brown the pork chops on  each side for about 1 minute.   TIP ~ I normally scrap off the onions while I brown the pork chops.. them add them back on top before I bake them in the oven.

Take off the stove top and finish cooking on the skillet in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.  Till pork is at least 145 degrees in the middle. I love my meat thermometer  for cooking pork, helps me know I cooked it enough before it get to over cooked and though.

Pineapple Zucchini Raisin Bread Recipe Ways to use Zucchini

Pineapple Zucchini Raisin Bread Recipe

This recipe came from my mother in law, she has made Pineapple Zucchini Raisin Bread Recipe for over 20 years and we look forward to it every year.  It is so moist and the perfect blend of spices.  Hope you enjoy it too.

Don’t forget to check out the list of tons of other ways to use zucchini. I have never seen so many different ways to use up zucchini from the garden. Even those huge zucchinis can be used for all kinds of recipes. See below.

You will need,

  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup oil ( for a healthy substitute use apple sauce)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup walnuts or pecans
  • 1 8oz can of crushed pineapple drained
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon  cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions:

In a large bowl mix wet ingredients ( Zucchini,  eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla, pineapple). Mix till well blended and set aside.

In another bowl add all the dry ingredients, mix them as well.  Then slowly start to mix dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, till fully mixed in.  Pour into two greased loaf pans.

Bake both loaf pans for 60-70 mins at 350 degrees.  Test with a toothpick, once it comes out of the middle clean, take out of oven and let cool before serving.  Once cooled wrap in foil or plastic wrap to keep fresh.

veggie penwheels recipe

Are you looking for a quick thrifty recipe for a finger food … How about Veggie Pinwheels.

You will need:

  • 8-10 flour tortillas
  • 5 different veggies 2/3 cup each
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 8oz sour cream
  • 1 ranch packet

Start out with 5 veggies…what ever your family likes.  Cut up 2/3 cup of each into small bits. I used Green onions, broccoli, celery, carrots and tomatoes (seeded or they are too juicy). In a mixing bowl add  ranch packet, 8 oz soften cream cheese, 8 oz ( half big container). Mix till well blended. Spread about 3 tablespoons on a flour tortilla…make sure you get it all the way to the edge. Spread veggies on top of cream mixture.  Make sure to leave about an inch on top with no veggies so it will stick closed. Roll up and place on a plate…cover with plastic wrap….and let chill for 2 hours till cream cheese is firm again

Cut….and enjoy.  These are great made the day before.
