My mother in law is a great cook. She is so good at it that people often get to fall off their chairs just by looking at her creations.

And even if it ever happened once her food not to taste good, then her passion for food would make up for it.

(One time I had a dream that Gordon Ramsay had come to her for some cooking competition and she slapped him. It was quite comic… )



Here is a recipe inspired by her:


Take 4 potatoes and 1 apple, grated.
take 4 pork chops
lemon juice
butter, olive oil
salt, pepper, cinnamon

put a spoon of oil in a pan and add the cinnamon and heat up the apples and potatoes at medium heat. Put a lid on them and leave to simmer for 3-4 minutes.

wash the pork and dry it very well with a napkin. Put salt and any spices you like, and then sprinkle the lemon juice on top. Leave for 5 minutes, but not longer.

After a few minutes, pour the potatoes and apples in a pan.

In a large pan put the olive oil and a spoon of butter and heat up. Do not let the butter to start smoking, but keep in mind that the pork chops need to fry for a few minutes at a high temperature, so the juices can stay inside.

Cook until the pork chops are golden and juicy; then put them in the pan over the mix.

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
