Here is a favourite, very easy brownie recipe that I use. I can put it together in less than 10 minutes, bake for less than 20 minutes after my supper is cooked, and the kids have dessert for school the next day.
This brownie recipe gets that shiny, crackley top on it that I used to think only came from a boxed mix. I'm not sure why this recipe works where others have failed, but it does. It's in between a fudgy brownie and a cake-like brownie, but you can adjust the texture a little by baking longer or shorter.
I've combined a few of my favourite recipes, one being an old handwritten hand me down from somewhere, and this is what has come out of it. Actually, all the recipes were almost identical, the only slight variation being in vanilla and salt. The brownie in the photo was made with pastry flour, as one recipe called for, but I usually use all purpose flour and it's fine too.
So here's an easy recipe for pork chops that I'm sure I haven't blogged yet. There are only 6 ingredients (5 if you leave out the olive oil), browning the chops is optional, and it can be cooked either in the oven or in the crockpot. My kind of recipe.
The pork chops that I use are cut from a big piece of sale pork loin (except I see in the pictures I've picked that these are not those chops - another sale package of bone in version). I sometimes butterfly the pork chops, and sometimes just slice them. These chops got cut a little thin, so this seemed to be the easiest way to cook them. I thickened the sauce at the end, and served with plain rice and a salad.
A note about the lemon: this recipe, simple as it is, really needs a real lemon. Lemon juice just doesn't seem to work as well. Try it if you want to, but I've found that lemon slices really do work the best here.
