Here's a great scalloped potato recipe that's so easy and absolutely delicious. The leftovers are just as good, maybe even better, the next day. This is one of my favorite and most prepared recipes, from my 1971 Florence Junior Welfare League cookbook.
When the skin of plantains blackens and their flesh softens, you've got plátanos maduros ("ripe plantains"). Deep-fry or sauté them until they caramelize for a great side dish for pork, or top with caramel for a delicious dessert.
Pork chops were one of our family favorites when we were little. These Pork chops are full of flavor and are so easy to make. I usually don't fry things, but every now and again I do enjoy a fried pork chop.
