A few years ago, I purchased this really neat book titled Essential Spices and Herbs. It consists of a lot of interesting information about the different types of spices and herbs. It also includes ideas on how you can use them for a variety of different things and several recipes.

As I helped myself to eating two pork chops.

Okay. Back to the recipe. The preparation of the recipe was incredibly easy, and delicious! I promise you and your family will not be disappointed.
