This Is the Most Popular Pork Chop Recipe on Pinterest — Popular on Pinterest

Kitchn readers love pork chops a lot. Like, a lot, a lot. Since we published our tutorial on how to make tender, juicy pork chops a handful of years ago, it’s been one of our most popular recipes. There are currently 150 comments on the recipe itself, many which talk about the ease of the technique. “Just created an account here to tell you this is my go to porkchop recipe,” said Crystal Z.

The tutorial itself is pretty basic. It creates great results, but there’s no crispy-crunchy cheese coating, and they aren’t smothered in a fancy basil-plum situation. So it got me thinking: What other recipes are there out there for pork chops that go above and beyond?

That’s where Pinterest comes into play. The most popular pork chop recipe on the social platform is slow cooker angel pork chop from Plain Chicken – it was saved 77,000 times in 2017 alone. The pork chops totally take a back burner to the pasta and sauce.


I Made Kombucha in a Super-Fancy French Fermenting Jar and Here’s What I Thought — Shopping

I absolutely love kombucha. What I absolutely don’t love is paying $5 a bottle for it — especially now that I’ve gotten my husband and my youngest daughter hooked on it too. With them guzzling down my precious stash, kombucha has morphed from a virtuous, gut-friendly mode of hydration to a flat-out budget buster.

Instead of giving up the tart, refreshing, fermented tea drink, I decided to try making it myself. I’ve wanted to do this for ages, but could never drum up the courage. I kept envisioning my countertops lined with sticky, murky jars draped with flaccid cheesecloth and filled with slime. Gross.

And then I saw this Montreal-made beauty.


The Crumb-Resistant Keyboard May Be Apple’s Ultimate Technological Achievement — Pop Culture

I wish I could tell you that my keyboard is as fresh and clean as the day I bought it, but unfortunately I cannot. Like many people, I take my computer from home to office to Starbucks and back multiple times a day, and all those croissants generate a lot of crumbs.

Keyboards are worse than couch cushions for attracting dirt, crumbs, hairs, and other debris. Someday the archaeologists of the future are going to analyze the junk under our keyboards for clues to the dietary habits of 21st century humans, but they might lose a valuable source of data in the next few years, because Apple has filed a patent for a crumb-resistant keyboard.

How To Make Crispy, Juicy Fried Chicken — Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn

Let me walk you through the pleasure of eating this crispy, juicy fried chicken: You’ve got this glistening drumstick with a coating so full of crunchy ripples that it is hard to determine where to hold on. You decide fingertips are best for maneuvering this chicken from the plate to your mouth. As you bring it closer you can smell the spices — garlic, onion, pepper, and even the smoky paprika. That first bite is a real stunner. As you dig in, the crust cracks audibly and reveals juicy chicken that is as flavorful as that irresistible crust. You’ll taste the herbs that made that chicken so fragrant and enjoy a mouthful that is equal parts crispy and juicy. Pieces of the crispy coating fall away.

I’m going to need a bigger stack of napkins, you think to yourself, and then you grab another piece.

The very best part of eating this chicken is that you made it yourself. You didn’t swing by the local KFC, you didn’t fork over 20 bucks at some trendy chicken joint. Nope — you, my friend, made this honest-to-goodness, crispy, juicy, finger-licking delicious chicken at home. Whether you’re a first-time fryer or your skillet is well-seasoned, this is the step-by-step guide for making the very best fried chicken at home.


5 Reasons I Don’t Keep My Trash Can in a Cabinet — Trash Talk

I firmly believe that some things are best left out of sight. When someone walks into my kitchen, I definitely don’t want the first thing they see to be a trash can. So stashing that trash bin in a cabinet seemed like a logical, aesthetically pleasing solution. Bonus: Keeping it behind closed doors meant I wouldn’t have to waste (get it?) precious square footage.

I’m sad to report, however, that keeping garbage in the cabinet below my kitchen sink has proven to be a bad idea. Here are five reasons I no longer keep my trash can in my cabinet.

The Secrets of the Best Irish Coffee, According to My Uncle Eddie — Brunch All-Stars

My uncle’s a pretty easy-going, good-humored man, but when it comes to Irish coffee, he’s nothing but serious. You see, he has his own kit — really just an old cardboard box with the words “Eddie’s Irish Coffee Kit” scribbled on the outside in a Sharpie — but it’s filled with his secrets.

It’s a traveling box, this kit. It comes with him to my cousin’s house for Christmas Eve and to other family affairs when capping off the evening with a boozy coffee seems fitting and festive. These Irish coffees, piled high with whipped cream, really are the best — they’re famous among family and friends alike. Here’s the funny part, though: he’s French Canadian. He may have married an Irishwoman, but he’s got Québécois running through his veins. No matter, though, because boy can he make a mean one. And after a few gentle nudges from his favorite niece, I got him talking.


10 Ingredients That Will Make Any Vegetarian Chili Taste Amazing — Tips from The Kitchn

During my stint as a vegetarian, bean-laden, meat-free chili was one of the dishes I turned to most. While I loved it because it was hearty and comforting, I’ll be the first to admit that it never tasted as good as traditional chili, no matter how hard I tried to get it there. The meat in traditional chili lends flavor that’s hard to find in beans and veggies. Luckily, there are a handful of vegetarian ingredients that can provide as much, if not more, flavor to the pot — many you may already have in your pantry right now. If only I knew that back then!
