Three of my favorite recipes

Smoked Pork Chops with Apples, Fresh Thyme & Sweet Onions

A perfect fall dinner — savory and sweet. You can find smoked pork chops in specialty meat markets and many grocery stores. The smoky, salty flavor of the porch chops is complemented by sweet apples. You’ll find this recipe in my book The Cast Iron Skillet.

Skillet-Roasted Mussels

Simple and delicious, these mussels make a magnificent appetizer. Serve with a loaf of your favorite crusty bread. The Pernod is optional but adds a nice, unexpected flavor. You’ll find this recipe in my book Cast Iron Skillet — Big Flavors.

Kale Tabbouleh with Pomegranate Seeds & Ras El Hanout Dressing

This refreshing salad is perfect holiday fare. Put this on the table and it will become everyone’s new favorite dish. The bright citrus vinaigrette helps tenderize the kale, and the pomegranate seeds add a sunny pop of festive flavor. You’ll find this recipe in my book World Spice at Home.
