Something for dinner… Forgive me for not being able to cite the source…forgot which recipe book/website I used.

Here’s the recipe:


6 (6-7 ounce boneless pork loin chops
6 slices bacon
ground black pepper
garlic powder
3 slices American cheese, cut into halves


Dry the chops with paper towels and season generously with salt, pepper and garlic. Wrap a strip of bacon around each one, securing with a toothpick (if u like, I did not use it though). Put the chops on a wired-rack pan and BROIL 4 inches from heat source, 6-8 minutes. Turn and continue broiling to desired *doneness, approximately 6-7 minutes. On the last 2 minutes put cheese on top and broil again until it melted. Serve hot.

* I cooked it into two batches. Notice that some chops cheese were a little burnt, it’s because I prefer it very well cooked.

Dinner was delicious specially paired with yummy leftover-well chilled potato salad from last night ;-).

Easter Sunday was so precious moment for us since it will be our first family  Easter.  To complete our crystal moment Easter Sunday, I thought I should make a cake and here it is (picture above). Does it look delicious? Well for me it looks like it! I love the frosting and it came from Betty Crocker recipe book, an antique one. But I got the recipe of the cake and the chocolate frosting online, my bad because I can’t remember the website. When I get some time I’ll edit my post so I can give the credit to the owner of the recipe. And I’ll post the recipe later too, for now just the picture. 🙂 hope you guys will like it!

Eating dinner with the whole family is such a crystal moment you can always share and enjoy together.  It gives a lot of joy and meaning specially for the little kids, that is why as much as we can we always eat together.  This recipe I’m going to share is not really my very own, so I am not claiming the ownership of this recipe. I got the tomato sauce recipe from one of the Baked Tilapia recipes in http://www.allrecipes.com. The first time I used the recipe, my husband loved it and I myself got surprise the way it tasted. I never thought it will be such a big hit to my husband and thought it’s just one of my disastrous cookings. I still remember the first time, ohh so yummmmy, specially eating with rice, just a perfect dinner meal!

Anyway, back about the recipe, as I said it’s not my very own, just made some changes or adjustments according to my cooking experimentation experience.

Here it is:


1 cup extra virgin olive oil 1/2 tsp dried Basil leaves
1 can ( oz) tomato paste 3 (1 pound) Mahi Mahi Fillets
1 tsp garlic powder 1 tomato fresh, sliced
1 tsp dried oregano 1 large Onion, sliced
1/2 tsp salt (or according to taste) 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp ground black pepper 3 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp dried Parsley


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat bottom of a medium baking dish with about 1/2 cup olive oil.

2. In a small bowl, blend remaining olive oil, tomato paste, garlic powder, oregano, salt, ground black pepper, parsley and basil.

3. Arrange Mahi Mahi fillets in the prepared baking dish, skin side up. With spatula or spoon, spread the olive oil and tomato paste mixture over the Mahi Mahi fillets, heaping the
majority in the centers of the fillets. Arrange onion and green pepper slices on and around the fillets.

4. Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, until fish is easily flaked with a fork. Remove from
heat, arrange the tomato fresh slices on top and around each fillet then top with 1
tablespoon butter on the center of the fillet and set oven to broil. Broil 8 to 10 minutes,
until butter is melted and lightly brown.

* I also use this for chicken breast fillet and just adjust the time in baking.
