Roasted grapes are totally my thing, I’ve realized recently. They fill your kitchen with an aroma of warm, jam-like comfort, yet the grapes themselves retain some of their crisp texture with the short cooking time they need to char and warm through in roasting. 

Pork Chops with Rosemary-Roasted Grapes

1 1/2 pounds seedless black grapes on the vine
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided?
4 sprigs rosemary
4 thin center cut pork rib chops, about 1/2-inch thick (about 1 1/2 pounds total)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon butter
?2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

As a freelance food writer and cook, I first wrote this style of recipe as a column on my blog, The Wright Recipes, as an excuse to cook good food for my friends in a quick and simple way. 

Twenty-Dollar, Twenty-Minute™ Meals grew into a cookbook that was published by Workman in May 2013. The recipes found here are original, made especially for Food52 to once again celebrate simple food with friends.

Before her diagnosis, Caroline wrote a book on cakes called Cake Magic!. She started developing a birthday cake using her gluten-free mix found in that book. Check out other recipes she’s developing for her new life—and the stories behind them—on her blog, The Wright Recipes. Her next book, Soup Club, is a collection of recipes she made for her underground soup club of vegan and grain-free soups she delivers every week to friends throughout Seattle's rainy winter.

This dish reminds me of a memorable dinner I had at an Italian home of a friend. It was simple with the best ingredients and good company. Bravo !
