For the entree, Bernadette Bennett contributes her mouthwatering Orange Basil Chops. The no-fuss pork chops and simple sauce come together easily on the stovetop in one skillet, so cleanup is a breeze. With its hints or orange, garlic and basil, it's tasty main dish that impresses company yet is ready in no time.—Bernadette Bennett, Waco, Texas
When I had to make a dinner with Mennonite theme, I came up with this meaty main dish. Most often, I serve it with salad, soup and bread. The apple juice gives the pork a wonderful flavor, and the cabbage taste isn't too strong.
My husband and I have two grown children. We raise corn and soybeans and feed out cattle here, plus we also grow specialty-cut fresh flowers.
Picture this: It’s Monday night, dinner’s done and you have time to put up your feet. A few ingredients, 15 minutes of prep and hands-free bake time make this smarty-pants main dish a busy cook’s ideal midweek meal. —Simple & Delicious Test Kitchen

“My husband loves pork chops. They're a good source of lean protein and it's easy to change the flavor by using different spices. I created this marinade based on a few I saw in Healthy Cooking.” Jackie Termont - Richmond, Virginia
When my mom was in her 90s, I copied all her recipes and made a cookbook that I sent as a Christmas gift to my children, nieces and nephews. These tender pork chops were always one of my favorites.
