No food history today. Today's recipe comes from my favorite lady Paula Deen. I was watching Paula's Home Cooking and she was making Low Country Smothered Pork Chops. The recipe look so easy to make. No knife needed, Paula was cutting the pork chops with her fork. So you know they are tender and moist. And the bell peppers and onions are so tasty. So I had to give them a try, so glad I did. Yum factor!
I just adore Paula Deen and her family. I love her sunny personality and her laugh. Her humor makes me laugh. I enjoy trying different recipes from her cookbooks, her shows and her website. Her recipes are to die for. Not only is she a great cook, but she is honest. Paula is a true southern lady. She puts her family first. She never forgets where she came from. Paula works hard. I'm addicted to the Food Network and The Cooking Channel. Paula Deen is one of my favorite cooks. Paula says... she isn't a chef she's a cook. I just love her.
