La Kitchenette Souris : Dijon Pork Chops & Caesar Salad

These are absolutely delicious recipes & both are very, very easy!

Great for beginner cooks who want to impress their guests~ you will be a success with these recipes!

And for the more experienced cooks, they will be a nice break from the fancier foods in a chefs kitchen, but still make you look brilliant.

P.S. The potatoes are ~~Parmentier Potatoes~~, another grand side dish!

Bon appetite!
