Pork Scaloppine with Coconut Flour
Who doesn't love when a recipe calls for an inexpensive cut of meat? It's such a great way to keep the grocery bill in check while keeping your family satisfied. Pork loin is delicious, and you can actually get the precut pork steaks on sale frequently. This dish is tart, savory, and oh so satisfying. The other thing I love about this meal is it's use of coconut flour. Coconut flour can be used the same way traditional flour can, only its much healthier for you. It's an excellent source of dietary fiber. It's low in sodium, carbohydrates, and cholesterol. It's an excellent ingredient for anyone that has gone gluten free as well. 

2 tablespoons olive oil
8 ounces egg noodles 
4 precut pork loin steaks
1/4 cup coconut flour (found here
1 teaspoon Lavender Apple herbs de provence (found here)
2/3 cup white wine
1 large garlic clove, minced 
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons parlsey, chopped

Cook your noodles in salted boiling water for about 8 minutes. Pat your pork steaks dry with a paper towel, then give them a good sprinkle of salt and pepper and cover them with the flour and herbs de provence. Heat your oil in a large skillet. Brown the pork on each side (about 2-3 minutes) then move them to a plate and set aside. In the same skillet and your butter and wine and cook for 3 minutes or until slightly reduced. Then add your garlic and cook for an additional minute. Add your egg noodles to a large bowl, place your chops on top, then cover everything with the sauce and parsley. Salt and pepper as needed.  

These golden pork loin steaks, atop dripping noodles have such a wonderful flavor for a dish that comes together in just minutes. How else have you used coconut flour? We'd love to hear from you!

Popovers without a popover pan!
Popovers are my fave. They are fluffy, buttery, and full of carbs. Who wouldn't love that combo? This particular popover recipe is my favorite because you can utilize just a regular old muffin tin rather than purchasing a fancy popover pan. The less gadgets cluttering my kitchen, the better, right? 

My husband was utterly impressed impressed by this recipe and ate half the pan before I could even try one! They were even better when topped with our Lavender Apple Honey found HERE. 

1 cup whole milk
2 eggs
tablespoon butter, melted 
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a blender, mix everything together until it looks frothy. Let the popover batter rest while the oven pre-heats to 450 degrees. Use a large muffin tin pan that serves 6. Put the empty muffin tin in the oven for 2 minutes to warm it up. Remove it from the oven and melt an extra 2 tablespoons of butter in the microwave, and then divide the butter between the cups. Pulse the batter in the blender once more to make it bubble and then fill each cup. Bake for 15 minutes. Resist the urge to open the oven door while they bake or you will unpop your popovers. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake for another 15 minutes. Your popovers should be golden brown and dry to the touch and sound hollow when you tap on them. 

Eat and enjoy! I'm hungry just thinking about it!
