Pork Rind Crusted Pork Chops

Crushed pork rinds make a tasty, low-carb coating for pork chops. Serve these pork chops immediately and don’t plan on keeping leftovers – as they rest, accumulated juices can make the crust soggy (though I can say from experience that even when this happens, the pork chops are still delicious!).

Spaghetti Squash Sesame Noodles

Very close to the real thing, spaghetti squash sesame noodles are a tasty compromise for those of us trying to limit carbs or avoid gluten. Serve as a side dish to any Asian-inspired meal – I often serve it with nori-wrapped salmon. Click for the recipe

Roasted Broccoli Stalks

Don’t toss those broccoli stalks! They are a delicacy, especially when roasted. You can use two baking sheets and roast the broccoli florets at the same time, though they will likely be ready a few minutes before the stalks. Click for the recipe

Baked Cheeseburgers

Baking cheeseburgers in the oven is so easy – no need to form the meat into patties, or to keep an eye on them as they fry or grill. And no grease splatters to clean up! The meat does tend to come out a bit drier, since some juices are lost while baking. Still, these baked cheeseburgers are delicious, and they are requested often by my family. Leftovers are wonderful the next day for breakfast or lunch – briefly warmed in the microwave, or even cold. Click for the recipe

Sauteed Sugar Snap Peas

I love how easy it is to make sauteed sugar snap peas, and how delicious this simple dish is. I’m too lazy to wash and trim the peas, so I usually buy them pre-washed, pre-trimmed and ready to eat, which truly makes this a 10-minute dish. Click for the recipe
