Guess what Laura and I are doing this weekend? Dancing. We’re gonna get ready in our 2×2 bathroom, listen to loud music on channel 901 ‘the hit list’, while probably consuming adult beverages in our kitchen AND THEN go to Rock Bar. It’s going to be like college all over again. We lived together in college where every Thursday night, I would get ready, dance, and consume multiple shots in a small time frame while Laura sat and stared at everyone else getting ready. Laura has this thing called natural beauty, she needs around 18 minutes to get ready. Me on the other hand, that’s a sh*t show. I need around 1 hour to look even close to civilized. If I’m actually getting dressed to go out, I’m making sure this stuff called acne is covered the hell up. Oh screw you acne. Ok, I need to pull myself together. Back to the point.

Even though we are going to dance like true idiots just like our college days, now it’ll be a little different. Our senior year was a bit obnoxious…well at least for me. This is what a usual Thursday/Friday/Saturday night looked like.

  • I would consume 4-5 shots PRIOR to leaving for the bars. Prior. Terrible idea.
  • After we were warm and cozy with alcohol, we would bike the mile or so to the bars. Stopping at “our spot” to take pictures. No idea how or why it became the spot, but it was a good spot.
  • Then all of us girls would dance on the bar. We were very classy. Most all of us fell off at some point during our senior year drinking fest. Every classier.

    the spot
  • We would somehow all drunkenly split off in the middle of the night.
  • Then we would all re-meet in the morning to consume 1-2 breakfast burritos from Qdoba. And Laura and I were both thinner back then. What the sh*t?! Makes no sense. F*ck age.

Oh college senior year was so fun. I’m going to relive some stories throughout some of my blog posts. It makes for good memories. Memories meaning Laura telling stories and me wishing I actually remembered anything she was talking about. Anyways, Laura and I are going to rock out at Rock Bar. Where else can you dance on creepy carpeting in a bar off of Colfax….dumb question. It’s going to be fantastic.


Pork Chops with Chunky Sweet Curried Sauce



For the pork-

  • 2lbs pork loin or roast
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 white pepper
  • 1/4 thyme

For the sauce-

  • 2 apples, cored and chopped
  • 1 red onion, peeled and sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup canned coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add all spices to a large bowl or shallow dish. Place pork in the spices and coat evenly all around. Use your hands to massage that pig and get all the spices rubbed in.
  3. Place pork in a baking dish and cook in the oven for 20-22 minutes or until internal temperate of the pork is around 160-180 degrees.
  4. While the pork is cooking, make your chunky sauce. Slice and dice your apples and onions and mince your garlic.
  5. Heat up a large skillet with a bit of olive oil or coconut oil and add your garlic. Once your smell the garlic, add the onions to cook for about 2 minutes, then add apples as well.
  6. When the onions begin to become translucent, add coconut milk and vinegar to the mix along with your curry powder and salt/pepper.
  7. Reduce heat and let simmer. The sauce will thicken up over time so let it be, stirring occassionally.
  8. When the pork is done cooking, let rest for around 10 minutes. Then cut into chops. Pour sauce on top.
  9. It’s stupid good. I love curry. If you don’t love curry, I hate you.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Making this tonight…have a feeling I’m going to love you even more than I already do…if that is possible. You are my hero…I wanna be you when I grow up. That was stalkerish…sorry…not a stalker…I swear…well…sort-of cuz I stalk your blog for recipes and a good laugh but not like stalker where I follow you around and wear the same clothes and stuff….that would be weird.

    Anyway…thanks for the recipe. 🙂

  2. Hi, thanks for all of your amazing recipes. My 14 yr. old son and I have just started this diet and were excited to find this site. We had this recipe last night and it was a huge hit! We had a little left over of the sauce and today made turkey wraps in lettuce with the sauce inside! SO good! It will also make for easy school lunches. I look forward to trying more of your recipes and I also like your posts. They have kept me smiling 🙂

  3. JB strikes again. This recipe is really delicious. So many great flavors, very simple to make. Great job. I paired with sautéed kale w coconut aminos and it was a great meal. Thanks again.

  4. I am either blind or retarded but it calls for garlic in the sauce but there is no garlic in the ingredients. Making this now and I love garlic so I’m just going to go with lots. If it doesn’t work I will know “lots” isn’t the right amount 😉 thanks!!!!

  5. Hey girl,
    Came across your recipe. Big smile on my face as I went “back to school” in Denver.
    Friday and Sat night at the Aqua Lounge.
    Didn’t have carpet, but that didn’t stop it from being a very cool place to dance like fools and party. Stuffing 6-7 people in my 4 seat’r car, dressing up the crew, ha, you know the drill 😉
    Thanks for the recipe and a trip down memory lane…………

  6. I wouldn’t even give your site with a name that takes my God’s in vain if I couldn’t get more than the ingredients off of Yummly! Have a little respect for other’s faith!

    1. You read it as god, it could be gosh or goodness or anything else with a g. I think you need to learn a bit more respect for other people’s property, such as their website. My religious friends and family have not once been offended with the name so your frustration may be stemming from your own insecurities

  7. Hey Juli,

    What curry powder did you use? I find 2 tbs curry powder is too much. It added a bitterness taste to the sauce. I also find 22 mins is way not enough, it took 60 mins to roast the meat at 350 degree (first 25 mins), 420 degree (the rest).

    Other than that, it is delicious! I love your recipes. Tried almost 10 of them now and they are all amazing!

    1. just regular yellow curry powder you get in the spice isle at whole foods, nothing too fancy. i think it depends on the thickness of your pork chops as well, sorry about that!

  8. Yum! Just had to say thank-you for providing the recipe for a wonderfully delicious meal last night. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it is going in my “Make Again” folder. Stay Happy, Lisa Jo
