Cast Iron Pork Chops with Apples and Onions

Last night I whipped up a new dinner recipe with a little inspiration from the reformed jail bird herself, Martha Stewart. (Remember when Martha Stewart was in jail? Those were crazy times...) 

I didn't have a plan for dinner, but I did have pork chops, apples, and onions. When my husband cracked open a can of hard apple cider for me (he knows I love the stuff!), dinner started to come together. I quickly consulted Google for some guidance and landed on Martha's recipe for pork with apples and onions as inspiration. 

This one will be a hit with all your people (kids, our FLF Dudes, etc.) I served it with a big side salad: mixed greens, roasted tomatoes, red onions, goat cheese, balsamic vinaigrette.

Grass-fed Beef Baked Meatballs

This recipe includes the Ethiopian spice blend known as berbere, but you can easily sub the much-easier-to-find garam masala. Along with the raisins, it gives the meatballs a warm sweetness.

The original recipe was easy to modify! I ditched the breadcrumbs and instead added 1 Tbs. of coconut flour for a binding agent to hold the meatballs together. I also reduced the cheese down from 3/4 of a cup because an Italian cheese in Ethiopian meatballs just seemed weird to me:) If you have a dairy allergy, I'm willing to bet money you could leave the cheese out entirely and the recipe would be A-okay.
