Rosemary Pork Chops
"I'm glad my sister-in-law shared the recipe for this coating mix for pork," says Margaret Welder. "It comes in handy when unexpected guests drop by, and it's wonderful on chicken, too." The Madrid, Iowa reader usually bakes the tender chops, but it's even quicker to cook them on the stovetop.
