Morning Fog


If you love chicken or veal marsala, I think you will love this recipe made with pork chops and topped with Prosciutto di Parma and mozzarella.

Lee's Kitchen Tips:
In 2011 the new guidelines from the National Pork Board and 
the USDA recommends cooking pork to 145 degrees Fahrenheit (63 degrees Celsius). That's 15 degrees less than what was recommended for years and. . .that's a good thing because your pork chops will not be dried out and tough. I removed the pork chops to a baking sheet when they registered 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). The temperature will rise and they will also go under the broiler for a minute or two to melt the cheese.

Spring has arrived with some hail and an abundance of beautiful sunrises.

This time of year, we experience cool weather but longer hours of daylight.

Time for lighter meals, evening fires in the fireplace, and of course. . .dinners by candlelight.

I​zetta's Southern Cooking

I'm taking some liberties with my mother's favorite recipes. We did enjoy Chinese food when I was growing up. So I'm adding a few Asian dishes to my southern blog. 

Pork Chow Mein is a Chinese-American dish, traditionally made with pork or chicken, fresh noodles, vegetables, cilantro, and crispy chow mein noodles on top. I added mushrooms because we love them but you can add whatever you wish.

Chop everything up and place on a baking sheet or pizza pan ready to add to your wok or large skillet. Dinner in under 30 minutes!
