This is a recipe that I have had for a little over 50 years when I purchased 2 Campbell Soup Recipe Books. I was a career person, as was my Ex. I had to have meals ready to serve no later than 7:30 PM. And, I did a lot of entertaining due to my Ex’s job. I worked in LA and lived 39 miles north in Thousand Oaks, CA. Needless to say I did not have a lot of prep time. So, I found this recipe and it was great.
- 4 Pork Chops between 1/2″ – 1″
- I Can Campbell’s Tomato Soup
- Garlic (Salt or Powder – your choice depending on your diet or taste
- Spice Island Italian Herbs
- Salt & Pepper
Preheat Oven to 325 Degrees. Put the 4 Pork Chops in an 8×8 baking dish. Depending on the size of the chops, you may have to use slightly larger one in order to make all them lay flat on the bottom. Spoon the entire can of Tomato Soup on top of the Chops – make sure you cover each chop. Sprinkle Garlic Salt (Powder), Italian Herbs, Oregano, Salt & Pepper to taste. I have found that if I just sprinkle some of all the spices on each chop with a little sale and pepper it is just fine.
Cover and Bake for 1 – 1 1/2 hrs.
Tip – I have found that if I get four nice baking potatoes and bake them at the same time, other than a veggie and salad, dinner is almost done. Take the chops out for serving and stir up the sauce. I put butter on my baked potato and a couple ladels of the sauce on the potato. I usually serve this with peas, broccoli or green beans for color.
2nd Tip – If you use 6 Pork Chops, use the large can of Tomato Soup. If you do 8 Pork Chops, use 2 regular cans of Tomato Soup and just double the layer in the 8×8 baking dish and add 15 minutes baking time.
3rd Tip – You could, if you want, use your own or store bought marinara sauce, just don’t add all the herbs listed above.
4th Tip – If you like basil, you can also add it to the dish.
I have never had this dish fail me nor gotten a bad review from the parties consuming it. It is also good with Mashed Potatoes or Pasta, which you can put the marinara sauce on top.
Below is the recipe as published in the March/April 2014 Edition of Healthy Living Made Simple by Sam’s Club. I made this and think it is pretty good. I hope you will give it a try.

I have recently been introduced to Kale Smoothies by a friend. Even though Kale dates back to 600 B.C., I had never been exposed to it. I just received my new Sam’s Club March/April 2014 edition. Low and Behold they had a section on Kale and how it can be made into chips, steamed, put on homemade pizza, eaten as a salad, or used in smoothies and juicing.
So, I am going to share some of their findings with you. Kale is known to be rich in calciu lutein, iron, beta-carotene, and Vitamins A,C & K. It is also low in saturated fats and cholestrol. A cup of Kale is only 33 calories. It helps as an anti-inflamatory against arthritis, asthma and autoimmune disorders. Kale is higher in iron than beef.
You can checkout a study done by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to better understand Kale and its chemical compound called isothiocyanates (ITCs). ITCs research is ongoing relative to its association with reduced risk for several forms of cancer including gastroitestinal, lung and prostate cancers.

As some of you already know, back in January my sister came to visit and we had a little cookie baking fest. All my life, I have had a problem with milk and milk products. And, yes, I have tried Rice Milk, Goats Milk, Soy Milk, etc. Just as a lark, we decided to try CoffeeMate with the Vanilla flavor because all the cookie recipies called for milk and vanilla. It was the first time in I can’t remember how long that eating a cookie has not driven my colon into spasms. I was so impressed with how the first recipe turned out, that we made all the other cookie recipes with it.
I love Hot Chocolate and it, also, never agrees with my stomach. Well, I decided to add a couple of tablespoons of CoffeeMate Vanilla to my Hot Chocolate and OMG, I can drink the whole cup and have a calm stomach.
Next, because I consider Mashed Potatoes a comfort food for me, I also made them with it. It is like I am in Heaven. I know I should not eat them, but they are so good. I have learned to eat smaller portions due to my Cholestoral levels and also look for things that are -0- in Cholestoral.
Now I am not saying this is good for everyone cause God knows, I am not a doctor but, I can say it works for me. The next time I go to my doctor for a checkup, I will ask if this is detrimental to my well-being. But in the meantime I am going to enjoy it. After all, it is -0- (ZERO) Cholesterol.
FYI – The Huffington Post did an article on CoffeeMate (The Worst Coffee Creamer Flavors Of All Time) in January. I don’t totally agree with their article, but that is why we live in America.
