I recently realized that I’ve never posted the one dish that we had every Thanksgiving and Christmas when I was growing up–Cornbread Dressing. That’s mainly because I’ve always counted on my mother to make it. Even after I became vegetarian, my mother would set aside part of the dressing before she added the giblets or oysters or shrimp and bake it with vegetable broth separately for my vegan family and me. But because it’s a dish I love so much, I wanted to share it with you, so I took on the responsibility of making it myself this year.

Kick up the flavor with this herb-rubbed pork chop on a bed of cheesy rice. It comes together delicious and healthy. This pork chop is low in fat. It loaded with 9 g. and 5 g. of total fat and sat fat, respectively. But it is a high protein recipe, owing to the presence of red meat.
Here’s a simple cobbler that beautifully combines the flavors and colors of two fruits. Blueberries and peaches get messy together in this summer cobbler. While cobbler is in the oven, the smell of this baking will have your mouth watering. Serve warm with cream or ice cream.
