HOUSTON — We all know food is love, and some of us may have a lot of love to give, but are not the best cooks to spread it around. No worries, we are here to help. Our mouths started watering when we saw this recipe for Lemon Herb Pork Chops, courtesy of Cooking Professionally, so we definitely wanted to share it with our readers.

It’s easy to follow and, with many of us not being able to go out much during this holiday season due to the pandemic, we may need to rely on our own cooking skills more.

Here you go — thank us later.
