Pork Chops and I don’t have the greatest history. As many times as I have tried, I just haven’t cooked any that I loved. So, I stopped trying a couple of years back. And then, I saw this recipe on Melissa’s blog, I Was Born To Cook…and I knew I had to give it another try! These were so simple to make with only a few ingredients, and the lemony taste was perfect for my tastebuds! I probably overcooked them a bit, so they were a teeny bit tough, but not too bad. Next time I will decrease the time about 5 minutes or so. And I will be making them again!!
