Perfect pork chops

Most of my followers know that I like simple. I pride myself on posting some tasty concoctions that are super easy to make. I also use a lot of the same ingredients so people on a budget (like myself) don't have to buy a whole bunch of different things. These pork chops are no different. All you need is the pork, grapeseed oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, put the pork in a casserole dish, pour about a tablespoon of grapeseed oil over each pork chop, season with as much garlic powder, salt and pepper as you like, cover tightly with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover dish, turn oven off and let them sit in the oven for an additional 5-10 minutes. Voila!  Perfect, tender, juicy, incredibly easy pork chops!

Sexy tuna... yes, you read that right!

This my friends is the sexiest tuna you will ever eat. It's simple, its sweet, it's sour, it's salty, it's healthy! All that makes it sexy ! Take 3 cans of tuna in water, drain and put into a bowl. Next chop up a small yellow onion and mix it in with the tuna. Add in one clove of garlic, about a half teaspoon of cumin, and a half teaspoon of parsley flakes. Mix thoroughly. In a pan heat up about a tablespoon of sesame oil on medium high heat. Once the oil is heated, add in your tuna. Let that cook for just a little bit while occasionally stirring. In a separate bowl mix together about a tablespoon of oyster sauce, a half teaspoon of fish sauce, 1 tablespoon of Bragg liquid aminos, 1 tablespoon of honey, and about 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar. Pour the sauce into the pan and mix thoroughly. Let the tuna simmer in the sauce until it has absorbed most of it. Give it a final mix and serve!  There you have it!  Sexy tuna!

Roasted potatoes

Wash and cut up however many potatoes you want into chunks. I used russet. Put them into a roasting pan and drizzle with grapeseed oil. You can use olive or vegetable oil but I like grapeseed. Sprinkle on some salt, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and black pepper. Mix with a spoon until all the potatoes are thoroughly covered. Put the roasting pan into an oven preheated to 425 degrees. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour.
