Classic Recipes: Reimagined
I totally remember Shake n’ Bake as a kid! My mom would always let me taste some before she put the meat in the bag to shake it up. And I definitely remember that crispy outside and tender, juicy inside when she cooked this dish in our oven.
And yes, you can still by Shake n’ Bake in the stores today. But I often find it fun to recreate some of my childhood recipes from the 80’s. I like to make my own, homemade versions of some of these classic dishes. So far, I’ve made my own version of these Snickerdoodles using cake mix. I’ve given my Grandma’s Banana Bread Recipe a kick of Fall Flavors with this Apple Banana Bread. I’ve also given a CLASSIC family dinner from my youth an upgrade with this rich and hearty Beefaroni Recipe. I’ve even taken a stab at the classic Cracker Barrel Dish that every kid loves: Fried Apples!
So, this is my version of the famous Shake and Bake Pork Chops Recipe!
