I have a few recipes that I wanted to share with you today. This first one comes from a book called Reshaping it All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness, by Candace Cameron Bure. This isn't actually a cookbook, but she shares a lot of recipes throughout the pages, many of which I've made. I really liked the common sense approach to weight loss that this book offered, and I couldn't agree more with the idea that physical and spiritual fitness are connected. This recipe was easy to make and was popular with everyone in my family....
Grain Mustard Pork Chops (from Reshaping it All)
½ cup grain dijon mustard
2 tsp. Herb garden seasoning
1 tsp crushed garlic
1 tsp honey
2 TBS freshly chopped parsley
1 LB thick cut boneless pork loin chop
In a small bowl combine the mustard, herb seasoning, garlic, honey, and chopped parsley. Reserve ¼ cup of the rub for serving
Transfer mustard mixture to a resealable plastic bag. Add the pork chops and thoroughly coat with the mustard mixture. Let the pork chops sit for least 5 minutes or as long as overnight, in the refrigerator, before grilling.
Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Grill the chops for 6-7 minutes per side
Transfer to a serving platter and serve sprinkled with the reserved rub.
These Roasted Tomato, Basil and Cheese Crostini appetizers from Terri's Table, were a treat that I made last night for my community group. I will definitely be making them again, because they were delicious!
Another treat that I made last night for my friends were these granola bars from Marathon Mom. They taste like cookies (very rich ones), so I cut them into smaller pieces and served them in squares instead of bars. I think I've made these every week since I found the recipe earlier this summer. My kids keep asking for them.
Naan, from Budget Bites...this was a hit, and so very easy. I must make it again soon.
Looking at my Pinterest board, where I find and store my recipes, I realize that I could go on and on. I've been enjoying my time in the kitchen lately. This next link,(actually a whole collection of recipes) I haven't actually made yet. It's for an upcoming vacation and I think it's too great not to share....

If you want to share some links in the comments, of what you've been cooking lately, I'd love to see them!
