Meet and Greet Saturday

Welcome to our second Meet and Greet Saturday where I introduce you to our fabulous sponsors. :)

Photo Jewelry Making has been a long standing sponsor of The Girl Creative. You may have seen the ad in our sidebar for some time but in case you have not stopped by their site or was unsure of what exactly it was all about, let me tell you. :)

Family owned and operated, they are the world’s largest photo making jewelry supplies super store. With the rate of growth in handmade jewelry items this is one place that you never want to forget. I think their kits would be so much fun for kids to do as holiday and birthday gifts. I know as a mom of 2 school aged girls I get a ton of little “gifts and projects” from them every day. I would totally love it if they came home with some photo jewelry that they made.

The Girl Creative Eats: Pork Chop Piccata


Pork Chop Piccata from The Domestic Engineer
(adapted from Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Piccata)


4 boneless pork chops (1/2-3/4inch thick)
1/4 c. flour
salt & pepper
4 tbl. butter  
4 tbl. olive oil
3/4 c. white wine (I like using those cute 4 packs of wine that equal up to a full bottle- use 1 sm. bottle here)
1 can chicken broth
Juice from 1 lemon (I’m used to big and juicy lemons, you may need to use 2 to get more juice)
3/4 c. heavy cream
slurry of 2 tbl. cornstarch and 1/4 c. water (optional)
cooked spaghetti

Sprinkle the chops with salt and pepper, then dredge in the flour.
Heat up a skillet over medium heat along with half of the butter and half of the oil. Cook two of the chops, until browned and cooked all the way through. Then put the rest of the butter and oil in the pan and cook the remaining chops. Set aside someplace to keep warm.
Pour into the skillet the wine, chicken broth and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until it has reduced by half, scraping up all of the tasty browned bits on the bottom. Season with some salt and pepper.
Reduce the heat to low and add in the cream. Cook and stir until the sauce has thickened up a bit. 
At this point, if you want the sauce to be more like a gravy, add in the slurry and watch it thicken up!
Taste the sauce and add more lemon juice if you want more tang, more cream if you want less tang.
Serve sauce over the chops and some spaghetti.
