Kapusta (Polish Cabbage Soup)

Every Sunday, as a child growing up, we spent the afternoon visiting my Babci.  Babci means grandmother in Polish,* was my mother’s mother.  Like most women of her generation, she often made dishes that originated from the ‘old country’ and the distinctive tastes and flavors of those dishes are hardwired in my memory.

Pork and Apple Skewers With Orange Balsamic Glaze

Perfect Pork Chops

Before I met my husband, I avoided cooking pork chops – not because I didn’t like the taste of them, but because I could never cook them very well.  Most of the time my pork chops came out dry and tasteless, so rather than disappointing myself or my dinner guests, I steered clear of pork […]
