    Mommy Diva's Note:

    I go this recipe from the Rachel Ray show and I make it with Simple Couscous. My family absolutely loved it - even my 14 year old daughter cleaned her plate. I count that a success anytime! It is a nice change to the everyday - and is easy to make!! I did modify the sauce a bit as I like the sauce a bit thicker and used bing cherries in syrup as i couldn't find the ones she called for. Turned out great and looked the same.

      This was very tasty. We had ate with buttered noodles instead of couscous, with green beans on the side. Made for ZWT5 for The Fearless.

      Very good, I added in about 1/2 cup cranberry sauce also, and used 2 smaller shallots, I dredged the chops in garlic powder with the flour, also I used bone-in fast-fry pork chops instead of pounding the chop[s thin, thanks for sharing Mommy D, DH and myself enjoyed this!...Kitten:)
