I would love to learn to cook Asian food well. I bet you could trade cooking lessons with a friend! She could teach you meatloaf and you could teach her potstickers!

2 tablespoons reduced-fat butter, divided
4 boneless pork loin chops (about 4 ounces each)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 medium tart apples, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped pecans (I toast mine in the oven because I think it brings out more flavor)
1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add pork chops; cook 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
2. Remove chops; keep warm. Add apples, pecans, brown sugar mixture and remaining butter to pan; cook and stir until apples are tender. Serve with chops.

A lot of people prefer chops with the bone-in (more flavor and fat), so if you go that route, add a few minutes to the cooking time. Also, if you think ahead, you can brine the pork chops and it makes them really juicy...but if you dry them out =c) the apples cover that up pretty well.
This sounds really good, except in my house, this would definitely NOT serve 4! Maybe 2. I can guarantee you that my young men would each eat 2 of these, especially if 1 was just 4 ounces!! (oh, and I'd use real butter!)

Foods of Love–our guide to aphrodisiac foods | Eat Something Sexy

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, (FDA), there is no such thing as an aphrodisiac. But ancient wisdom tells a different story. Throughout history, various foods have been held in the highest regards as aphrodisiacs. Some are suggestive in shape, many have arousing aromas or a sensual mouthfeel. Some raise body temperature and others provide instant energy. But measured under the scrutiny of modern science, we learn that in addition to an ability to caress the tongue or lower inhibition in a bid to attract women or men, most of these foods are excellent sources of energy vital maintaining sexual hormone levels and/or sparking neurotransmitters that trigger feelings of love or sexual arousal. So, do aphrodisiacs really exist? Read for yourself and you make the call. You already know where we stand on the topic! Bon appetit.

Turkey necks are really tasty and super easy to make.

Put a package of raw turkey necks in a crockpot. Season well with onion powder, garlic powder, an all in one like nature's seasoning or Mrs dash. Add 1/3 cup soy sauce and 1/3 cup worsterchire sauce. Add enough water to cover them and cook in a crock pot for 8 hrs on low. Serve over rice with a salad or collard greens.

Black eyed peas are also a staple and easy. Buy a package of the dry beans and soak overnight in water. They next day boil ham hocks or smoked turkey pieces in water an hour or two, until the meat is tender.
In a separate pot, add the drained beans, season well, add just enough water to cover the beans. Bring to a boil and then simmer for hour and a half. Then add the meat and simmer another hour.
These are good over rice and with cornbread.

Quality ingredients, always, no matter what it is.

Crab, corn on the cob.
Filet Minion, sweet potato.
Lobster mac and cheese.
Ribeye's, veg.

Whatever it is, get the good stuff.
