    Mommy Diva's Note:

    I got this recipe from the Rachel Ray Show. I make it with Pork Chops With Cherry Pan Sauce - a great combination that my family loved - my almost 14 year old daughter actually ate everything on her plate!! ;) Love or hate RR, Don't knock it till you try it.

      Terrific dish! I served this with some grilled lamb steaks and the mint was a PERFECT accompaniment. Lamb and mint is always a winner winner dinner. A very nice recipe. Two thumb ups!

      I love couscous since it's so quick and easy, and always tastes good. This recipe is no exception. I did not use the butter and only had 1 cup of stock left, but it was homemade stock, so was full of flavor - the other cup was water. I liked the addition of almonds and parsley, it added a nice touch to the finished product! Thanks! Made for Beverage Tag.

      What a nice change of pace from plain ol' rice. The cinnamon makes this just a bit different and the crunch from the almonds and fresh herbs really add to the flavor. My BF doesn't like the texture of cous cous so for once I'll get some leftovers for lunch! Lucky Me!
