Did a search but since that function is still not working properly, please forgive if this is a repeat thread...
Just received my copy today, a self-indulgent splurge on Overstock.com, and while I haven't read the entire table of contents ;) , I did notice that my favorite pork chop recipe didn't make the cut :eek: but not to worry as I have it fairly well memeorized.
I don't know why I'm such a sucker for these books ;) ! Anyone else have it and use it often?

Are you talking about the CL cookbook with the strawberry tart picture on the cover? If so, I have been eyeing that one for several weeks now at Costco but I was worried that I had most of the recipes since I have been a subscriber for 5 years. But maybe I am missing some oldies but goodies? And I would love to know what your fave pork chop recipe is. :D

Yes, Michelle, that's the one. I've been subscribing since the beginning and even though I have all the Annuals from '97 on (when they started including all the recipes from the magazine) I still like the idea of the best of the best in one place. And these are suppose to be the 500 best since the beginning.
BTW, my favorite pork chop recipe is the Pork Chops Braised in Country Gravy, good eating without the guilt...though I do double the gravy (3 tbs a piece didn't cut it with my boys! ;) )
Last night I made the Sirloin Steak Smothered in Adobo Gravy (hope I've got that right) and it was very easy, very quick and very tasty!

I'm a sucker too, but I'm cheap and have it on request at my library!
And that pork chop recipe IS very good - I add sauteed mushrooms to the gravy and everyone but my non-meat eater loves it.

Sneezles: glad you are enjoying the cookbook! Such a pretty cover. I agree, it is nice to have the very best recipes all in one place. Also, CL often chooses recipes that I am not particularly interested in as their "best" which prompts me to try something I might normally ignore. I am going to give those pork chops a try -- I don't have a favorite pork chop recipe but maybe that will become mine too.
Avril: I loooove getting cookbooks at the library. Right now I have two Donna Hay books checked out. If there are more than 10 recipes I want out of a book, then I try to buy it on half.com or other used site. If there are less than 10, I just photocopy them. Hope admitting this won't get me arrested!!! :D
