Pan-Seared Pork Chops with Dijon Mustard Sauce

pan-seared pork chops with dijon mustard sauce - All that's Jas

Pan-Seared Pork Chops with Dijon Mustard Sauce I got a big surprise when I opened the package of what the label claimed was chicken. My heart was set on Italian chicken with artichoke sauce for dinner. I had peeled potatoes to make the best mashed potatoes and had all my ingredients out. What I found in the package was the other white meat. Instead of chicken, we had impromptu pork chops with mustard sauce. Although it turned out delicious, I…

Brie and Jelly French Toast

Brie and Jelly French Toast

Brie and Jelly French Toast Let me tell you about my relationship with brie cheese. When I first saw my cousin making a sandwich with brie cheese and jelly I thought she’d gone mad. That looked like the weirdest combination in the world although since our move to Germany I have gotten used to the sweet-savory food pairings. Cheese and jelly together though? Yuck. I certainly didn’t like its creamy texture with a rind of white mold. Come to find…

French Fish Ragout with Fried Potatoes

French Fish Ragout with fried potatoes | All that's Jas

Pear & Almond French Tart

“Did you fall from the pear tree?” is a popular idiom in Bosnia used to express disbelief without directly calling a person foolish. The legend says that, unlike the apple tree, the pear tree is the evil tree, the tree of evil demons. I’m not buying it – heeellooo, Eve? The only evil in this Pear & Almond French Tart dessert is that it’s devilishly delicious. It is hard to have any self-discipline when an evil little voice keeps telling…

French Mustard Pork Chops

  Politicians say they’re beefing up our economy. I think most of them don’t know beef from pork. Sorry, that’s how I feel these days. I promise, no more (or less) political views on this blog, ha. Back to cooking… An old French favorite, this dinner is filling yet strangely delicate. The mustard, cider, and cream add comfort and piquancy. To soak up the gorgeous juices and to serve as a quick potato substitute, serve up gnocchi alongside. Add vegetables…
