Autumn Was Made For Gingered Apple Pork Chops

Easy cooking, easy clean-up in one pan.
Easy cooking, easy clean-up in one pan.

Pork, apples and grapes are an unbeatable trio especially at this time of year.

Best yet, “Gingered Apple Pork Chops” can be prepared in just one skillet. It’s practically fast enough for a weeknight meal and impressive enough looking for company, too.

It’s from the new cookbook, “Half Baked Harvest Super Simple: More Than 125 Recipes for Instant, Overnight, Meal-Prepped, and Easy Comfort Foods” (Clarkson Potter), of which I received a review copy.

The book is by Colorado recipe developer Tieghan Gerard, creator of the blog, Half Baked Harvest.

Included are more than 125 recipes, most of which take 30 minutes or less to make. As the title implies, these are dishes that make use of organized prepping, streamlined techniques, a well-stocked pantry, and helpful gadgets at times.

But there are other times, where he’ll take a bite, and say, “Oh! You should make this more often.”

This sammy, which he loved from the get-go, is from the new cookbook, “Eat In My Kitchen” (Prestel) by Meike Peters, a Berlin-based writer and photographer who created the blog, Eat In My Kitchen.

The cookbook, of which I received a review copy, contains 100 recipes for seasonal food with a laid-back European attitude. In other words, it’s food that isn’t fussy. The lovely photos will make you want to cook and eat everything, too, from “Sauteed Endive with Balsamic Butter and Marjoram” to “Pumpkin Gnocchi with Roquefort Sauce” to “Riesling and Rhubarb Cake.”

Sandwiches are typically not hard to prepare. This one fits that simple mode, but delivers extra big on flavor.
