Pork Loin Chops on plate

Tangy Skillet Pork Loin ChopsHere's a pretty simple way to make pork loin chops with a beautiful tangy pan sauce. Even though these cuts are rather lean, you can get them to be very tender and juicy using this method. These chops pair very well with roast veggies, mashed potatoes, and rice pilafs. Leftover, they're great fillings for sandwiches.

Propagating Lemongrass in a Plastic BottleHave an empty plastic water bottle? You can cut the plastic bottom down to size and propagate your choice of plant. I like this method because I'm able to see the roots grow and ensure it'll be successful instead of planting directly into soil.

Finding the Value of Brandt End Tables?I'm looking at a pair of purported Brandt mahogany, square, 2-shelved, tapered-leg end "stands" at auction. One has damage to one of the teeth in the "crust", and both look a little worse for wear--the surfaces appear scratched and water-stained, obviously from use, but there is still a good bit of finish sheen remaining. They appear to be about 2-feet tall.
