Layered Turtle Cheesecake

Here's the other recipe we tried: Layered Turtle Cheesecake
This was awesomely delicious as well, and quite rich!

Personally we thought if it was going to be called "turtle" it needed more caramel and pecans; I'd double, triple, or even quadruple that layer!  But we'll definitely keep this in the recipe binder.

Italian Pork Chops

It's been a while since we've shared any new recipes, but two we tried yesterday were too good not to.  Michelle does a great job finding new ones!  (These were adapted from a Taste of Home magazine.)
Italian Pork Chops
(We decided this sauce would be great on chicken as well.)

Sauté some chopped green pepper, chopped red pepper, diced onions, and sliced mushrooms in a little bit of olive oil.  Scoot to the side, add a bit more oil and brown 4-6 pork chops in the pan.  Add about 2 cups of marinara sauce (we made our own by adding our regular "spaghetti sauce mix" to a large can of tomato sauce), cover and cook until the meat is done.  Add some sliced olives and serve.  We even thought about topping with some cheese, and even though I'm sure that would have been delicious, it was fine without it.

Risotto was the perfect accompaniment!
