I am always looking for new recipes, but most of the time, I never get around to making them. I have quite a collection of recipes that I will share with you, and some of them sound absolutely devilishly delicious!
If you get a chance to try them, post away and let me know if they were indeed delicious or if they just "looked good on paper".
Here is one I thought sounded great, but my husband did not seem to think it would be!
Try it and let me know.
Chili-Peanut Pork Chops with Carrot-Cucumber Salad
