This morning I kissed my son’s sweet round cheeks and whispered ‘Good Morning’.

He stretched, kicked off his blanket, yawned, rolled over and sort of yelled ‘Why do my legs feel like rubber bands every morning?!’

I replied ‘That is how Mommy feels every morning before she drinks her coffee.’

Since Mommy also seems to acquire the rubber band legs by late afternoon just about dinner time, I was super sleepy the other day and could not think up a dinner recipe so I went back to staring at the September edition of Everyday Food. I decided to modify their garlic-lemon pork recipe and Voila: Dinner!


Are you a ‘morning or evening person’?

Thank you for this one!! I’ve been having trouble finding a pork chop recipe that both my husband and I would like…I keep reverting back to the panko-baked. Viola!

Is it 1/2 a cup or a carton of chicken broth?

Jennifer October 5, 2012 at 1:14 pm

1/2 cup – enjoy!

Hi Jennifer,

This was a great post, and the photo looks amazing. But I found this recipe linked to a website called which I know to be a spam site (they have launched a number of fake websites like,, Their game is to take legitimate photographs and recipe posts (such as yours) and then link it to their own website. I don’t know why they do that. I just found it linked to on Pinterest and set the pinner straight, but eight people had already repinned it by the time I saw it. I don’t know if you can do anything about it, but I suggest you try. I’ve decided to make it my goal to expose these people since reporting them to Pinterest hasn’t made a jot of difference so far.

Best wishes,


PS: This is the link that I was talking about:

Thank you!!! I reported the pin and wrote them. Darn those who steal. I greatly appreciate your time.

Awanthi @ Sybaritic Pleasures October 9, 2012 at 12:48 am

You’re welcome! I think we’re all in the same boat (food bloggers) and we need to stick by each other! I’m doing my best to continue reporting individual pins and people (they have certain people who only pin to group boards like that and always to the same sites) as and when I find them. 🙂


Jessica January 7, 2013 at 4:35 pm

I can’t wait to try this one. This looks amazing. I pinned it and posted it to my blog too. Thank you!

Jennifer January 7, 2013 at 5:55 pm

Thank you Jessica -you made me blush!

Liz January 7, 2013 at 7:35 pm

I just made this for my boyfriend and me. It was fabulous!! And it was super convenient – I had everything in the house! I would just add more mushrooms next time, because I love mushrooms!

Tran January 8, 2013 at 5:50 pm

Making this right now but can’t seem to get the nice Carmel color. Am I doing some thing wrong?

Wendy January 23, 2013 at 3:26 pm

I just made this & it’s delicious! I’ve been looking for an easy great tasting pork chop recipe & after trying this one I can say I will add it to my favs.

Annie January 25, 2013 at 7:34 pm

This was delicious! I made this tonight and my husband gobbled it down because it was “so good” which is very unlike him since he’s a picky eater! Thanks for a great recipe! =)

Kelly March 4, 2013 at 9:16 pm

This was a delicious recipe! Thank You!

Jennifer March 5, 2013 at 9:22 am

You are welcome!!!

Maggie April 8, 2013 at 9:05 am

I’m looking forward to trying this recipe this week, but could use some suggestions for sides. I’ve never had much luck with pork chop meals and am desperate to find one my family will enjoy. Thanks!

Dori April 10, 2013 at 4:18 pm

This Looks Good. I Love Every Day Food And She Csncelled It! So Mad.

Sabrina May 23, 2013 at 7:40 pm

Was really disappointed in this dish. The picture makes it look sooo yummy but mine had hardly any color. They were really bland even after adding seasoning.

Jennifer May 24, 2013 at 11:40 am

Hi Sabrina, So sorry this recipe did not work well for you as I have gotten such good feedback. Was the oil hot enough? Did you use enough lemon? Did you use coarse salt or fine?

Jennifer May 25, 2013 at 5:55 pm

Tell me about family favorites and dislikes Maggie

Jennifer May 25, 2013 at 5:58 pm

Is the heat high enough?

Sara July 24, 2013 at 7:08 pm

I made this tonight, and it was AMAZING. Thank you so much for one of my new favorite recipes. My only issue was not enough mushrooms… I will double the amount the next time I make this.

karii January 12, 2016 at 12:45 am

Just made this for dinner and everyone loved it! Already asking me to make it again =D very easy to make, next time I’ll just add more mushrooms and onions.♡ thank you!
