About RecipeReminiscing

portait_recipeHello webwanderer, welcome to RecipeReminiscing. I’m TidiousTed and I run this blog. I’m not a chef or cook neither have I any formal training or education in catering or cooking. I’m just a graphic designer and web designer  who likes to cook. A lot of this blog is based on my large collection of old cook books in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and English. The rest of the post comes from old ads and roaming the net looking for interesting recipes. I’m interested in food history and soda and soft drink history too so there will be posts on this from time to time as well. I hope you’ll enjoy your stay here – Ted

An exciting way to serve pork chops found on rema.noPork Chops on Fried Rice Salad / Koteletter på Stekt Rissalat

There is little that can match pork chops for a lean dinner. Use high heat and do not cook the chops for too long – this way you will get a crispy outside crust, while retaining both taste and succulence in the lean meat.
