Since I’m challenging myself+my husband to make new recipes out of our new cookbooks throughout the year (at least one from each book per month), I decided to do mini-review posts of the recipes we make on the blog. I will not be posting the recipe (you can get it yourself in whichever book it comes from), but I’ll post a photo (if possible) of our dish made from the recipe as well as a few bullet-point notes. There’s a category on the blog for these posts called “recipe review 2013.”

Recipe: Cider-Glazed Pork Chops from The Complete America’s Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook 2001-2013, (page 156-157)
- when did we make this? Monday, July 1, for supper
- did we change anything? Yes, indeed. I used bone-in pork chops (I bought them by mistake when I thought I was getting boneless. Silly me.) I also did not have apple cider or apple juice on hand, but I did have applesauce! So I used that instead!
- what did we like? Delicious as usual!
- what didn’t we like? Nothing!
- will we make it again (any changes in the future)? We’ll definitely make it again, and likely with the applesauce substitution again, too. I actually really liked the applesauce substitution. Full-disclosure: This was not the first time I’ve made this recipe. We have made it a few times, because it is one that I tried when I checked out the book from the library to “preview” it. We’ve made it with the apple juice, and it was very good. The applesauce made the sauce thicker, which I preferred!
