One was the Good House Budget Dinners. There are a lot of fun, simple and cheap recipes. I'm so excited to try.
The other one is one I've been wanting since we got married. My mom uses it all the time and I used it a lot when I was back home. It is the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. It has lots of easy, delicious recipes for many basic things like cakes and pasta, but also a lot of fun recipes. Most of them are super easy. I have never had a recipe out of it that was not full proof (which is good for me). I was sooooo excited.
That very night I tried a recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens one. It was delicious! My husband is not a huge fan of pork chops, but he really like this recipe. It was so easy too. It would be great for a fancy company dinner (especially if you find pork chops on sale somewhere). No, that is not my picture of the pork chops, but its pretty close. One thing I did differently was that I did not finely crush the stuffing mix, I let it be. I made sure to cover the pork chops with mostly seasoning, but having the bigger pieces of dried stuffing added a crunch I liked. Enjoy.
