Pork loin bought in bulk is a cheap, and tasty alternative to chicken and the more expensive beef. Breading the loin traps juices, preventing overcooking and preserving flavor. This recipe is adapted from a Sicilian-American Recipe posted online. Full credit to www.allrecipes.com user ELISAW for the original information. This same recipe can also be used for flattened chicken cutlets.
A note on cooking meat – a meat thermometer is an extremely easy and inexpensive way to cook perfectly every time with no risk of under or overcooking.
A comforting cold-weather recipe (or Sunday dinner alternative), chicken paprikash is a popular Hungarian dish, and the most common of several existing paprikas variations. It would not be out of place on a family kitchen table, and the name is derived from the quantity of paprika in the dish. This recipe from Saveur requires the breakdown of a whole chicken, and will require a set of study poultry shears, but despite that and a long list of steps, is remarkably easy, as are the dumplings. Note that olive oil is NOT recommended as a substitute for canola oil – due to its low smoke point, it will burn and go rancid. Use lard, or research high-smoke point oils if you cannot purchase canola.
(Recipe will make 4 very small batches of dumplings– you may wish to double)

I used a 50/50 mix of different chocolates, normally one dark and one milk. I always think it’s the quality of the chocolate that really makes the difference. Even adding flavoured chocolates – like orange chocolate - can add a nice touch, so get creative!
Stir-fried tofu is quickly made, high-protein, low-calorie, and completely plant based (being a curd made from soy). Don’t make the rookie mistake of omitting two critical steps – pressing the tofu, and marinating it – as the end result will be tasteless, undercooked, and rubbery! This recipe requires some preparation and planning ahead, but the cooking itself is simple. Simply omit the chilli and chilli flakes for a non-spicy version.
This traditional, oil and garlic based dish from Naples contains just six ingredients. It is considerably lighter than the more internationally known tomato-based sauce recipes. Common variations include the addition of hard, grated cheese, and removal of chili flakes for those who do not enjoy the taste of spice. Note that this recipe will not work adequately without fresh lemon juice and fresh parsley.
