    Sometimes you just want something that reminds you of home. Whether, it’s been a hard day at work or a day when things aren’t going quite right, a favorite dish from childhood can make me feel better.

    This dish is my Version of one my Mom Used to Make

    As a child I loved this dish of browned pork chops baked in creamed corn. Mom’s version was true homestyle, comfort food. Although, I loved her version of pork chops in creamed corn, my palate has changed with time. Now, I crave a little more seasoning oomph… and Italian herbs seemed a perfect choice!
