Pork Chops & Apples

Pork Chops & Apples - A healthy delicious main dish and dessertPork Chops & Apples are a healthy way to serve a delicious meal and dessert. The juice from the apples bakes into the pork chops creating a tender meat. The apples are a bonus delight!

Before I give you this awesome recipe, I want to share with you the gift I received from my family. I have had the supreme luxury of having my house all to myself for the last few days. It’s peaceful and quiet!

Time alone is healthy and important for a multitude of reasons. My favorite reason is that it helps to avoid burn-out as a parent and wife. I love my family dearly but time apart is a blessing.

I don’t have to deal with eye-rolling from my teen-aged daughter or deal with Mr. Cranky-pants when he comes home from a bad day at work. It truly allows me to unwind and relax. When they come back, I appreciate them for all the positive things that they are.

For a list of other good reasons to spend time alone, please visit: Psychology Today.

Alright, enough about that. Let’s get to the recipe.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.. I love pork chop but my hubby generally doesn’t. This is one of those recipe that he likes.

      Thanks for stopping by Antionette. I wonder if this would work with another type of meat. Maybe Turkey? Hope your week is beautiful and your Easter is blessed.

      Hi Cj! I’m a bit late this week – Easter wore me out but I had a blast! Hope you had a terrific Easter too!

  7. Chris Cahill says: May 6, 2014

    Stacy I like to cook healthy so I used olive oil instead of butter to brown the porkchops. But using the oil as much as I do it didn’t seem to make a difference. But with the apples and chops spices and all it was very good. Thank You.

    • Stacy says: May 6, 2014

      Hi Chris, I use olive oil as well with many recipes. I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe, it’s one of my favorites!

    • Stacy says: May 29, 2014

      We really enjoy these! Simple and delish 🙂

    I agree time alone is very important. My hubby takes the kids out for a few hours on Mother’s Day to give me a break and that’s one of the best gifts ever.
    The recipe sounds like a great time saver to prep dinner and dessert together. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday.

    • Stacy says: July 31, 2014

      When you have kids, ten minutes alone often seems like a vacation! So great that you hubby does that for you!!! Thanks for dropping by 🙂

    Made this tonight for dinner for me and my husband. Loved this recipe. Have leftovers for tomorrow night. Couldn’t believe it was just spices and no salt. Absolutely wonderful! Thank you!
