I took several days off from any cooking and even really posting on my Facebook page for my now 3 year old daughter’s birthday and party at an amusement park called Knoebels. We had a blast! While I was so busy my friend offered to fill in for me for a day, and I meant to publish this Friday morning, but just got way too busy. So here is her post, just a few days late
Hello Everyone When Bernadette needed someone to do a guest blog I was eager to do it. Things have finally calmed down for me, so I had a few days of extra “free time” I guess I should first start out with an introduction My real name is Alyssa, but I have several nicknames. I am 27 years old, and live in MA. I live with my Dearest, and our two daughters Meghan (4) and Karina (2). They keep me busy, but when I am not busy I love cooking. I am the Creator/writer/owner of CookingFromASAHM Facebook Page, and Cooking From A SAHM blog. I enjoy cooking and creating for my family, and when I’m stressed out I turn to cooking. It’s a nice out, especially if pounding a chicken is necessary I created my page as a way to get my creativity out, and share my passion of cooking with others. The recipe that I am sharing with you all today is Seared Pork Chops covered in BBQ Sauce, Caramelized Onions, and potato pancakes. J and I often love to cook together, and come up with new recipes So one night we made this, and it was fantastic

Seared Pork chops w/ BBQ Sauce
I took the pork chops and each side I rubbed it with Extra Virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Then I put it on a hot pan for 3 minutes each side. Till you have a golden brown color. We then put them in a baking dish. We did a BBQ sauce with :
1 1/2 Cups Sweet Baby Rays Honey BBQ
1 t of finely chopped onion
1 1/2 t of minced garlic
2 T of Molasses
Just cap full of apple cider vinegar
A splash of apple juice
1 T of brown sugar
Whisk it together and put on each pork chop. Wrap with aluminum foil and bake till done. I’d probably cook it for half hour to an hour…depending on how thick
1 1/2 C Chopped onion in wedges
Drizzle of olive oil in the pan
1 tsp of Sugar
Dash of White cooking wine
In a pan drizzle olive oil and turn the pan on heating the oil. Use a medium heat. Throw in the onions and cook for about 10 minutes. I then added a 1 tsp of sugar and started caramelizing till they were a nice color. I put in just a Lil cooking wine, and cooked for a few minutes longer.
Potato Pancakes or Potato Latkes
Grate potatoes we used about 4.
1/2 Cup of flour
Salt and Pepper
Put grated potato in a bowl, add in flour, salt, pepper and egg. Now make little pancakes and put them in a pan of hot oil. Fry till they are golden brown.
