Welcome to my site!
I'm Cindy, and I love to cook! And, I love to eat... hence the size of my rear end! I come from a long line of cooks. My great great Grandmother was a cook in the original Harvey Houses. My grandmother Julia was an awesome cook, and my mom was incredible. I owe my skills to these great women. Especially my Mom who said this to me about making gravy... "Cindy Lynn, wallpaper paste is wallpaper paste & gravy is gravy. Never the two shall meet!" Shall we say my first experience at making gravy left a little bit to be desired! Thank the high heavens my cooking skills have improved since then! Enjoy!

Pork Chops with Bourbon Peach Glaze

This recipe was inspired from one of my favorite cookbooks - Cooking Light Annual Recipes, 2004. Even my son, who normally doesn't like sauces on his food, really enjoyed this for dinner. He liked it so much that he requested the left overs for lunch tomorrow!


4 boneless center cut loin pork chops
15oz can of sliced peaches in lite natural sauce
½ cup bourbon
¼ cup honey
3 Tbls soy sauce
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
½ tsp ginger
Salt and Pepper
Olive Oil for frying pork chops


Drizzle olive oil into non stick skillet that has a lid. Heat the olive oil. Salt and Pepper both sides of pork chops. Add pork chops to heated pan. Cook 4 – 5 minutes on each side, turning once. Remove pork chops to platter.

Combine bourbon, honey, soy sauce, cayenne pepper and ginger in a cup or bowl.

Drain peaches; add to pan. Sauté for a minute or two. Add bourbon mixture. Cook until bubbling for about 5 minutes. Return pork chops to pan, reduce heat, cover and cook for about 5 additional minutes.

Remove pork chops back to platter. Continue cooking peach bourbon mixture until it begins to thicken. Gently mash the peaches, but leave some of the whole slices. Continue reducing mixture until it has thickened. If need be, thicken with a small amount of cornstarch and water.

Serve the pork chops with the bourbon peach glaze generously spooned over the top.
