Orange Marmalade Pork Chops

So I have some orange marmalade in my fridge that I love to use on toast, but for some reason I thought to myself that the orange marmalade could make a great sauce for pork. I have eaten cranberry, pineapple, and the ever so famous apple pork, but never orange. I did some research online to help me come up with a recipe. The recipe below is what I came up with and I have to say that I really impressed myself, who knew orange and red onion could taste so good together. Plus, the resulting onion and orange marmalade sauce tasted great mixed in with the cous cous I served as a side.

Pretzel Crusted Brownies

I love the combination of salty and sweet, especially in the form of chocolate covered pretzels. I wanted to get that combination into a brownie format, so it was perfect when I found this recipe online. I decided to make these for some friends and they were a hit. 
They are a perfect combination of sweet and savory.

My wonderful husband made us dinner the other night, he decided to make Jambalaya with my new Le Creuset. This recipe turned out so delicious and it was fairly easy to do. Nick did a great job!

Italian Dip Pasta With Breaded Chicken

I had some leftover Italian dip from new years that is composed of cream cheese, basil pesto, and topped with sundried tomato bits. It is one of mine and Nicks favorite and so I decided to turn it into a pasta sauce. The resulting sauce turned out really tasty and since it was so easy to make it was even better. I will definitely do this again.

Crescent Roll Breakfast Sandwiches

I bought some Pillsbury crescent rolls the other day, something I never do. I decided to make them for brunch but instead of making them plain, I thought it would be fun to make them into a meal by turning them into a sort of breakfast sandwich. The result was pretty tasty.
