Lemon Thyme Pork Chops with Quinoa, Asparagus & Red Peppers

Our family has a few favorite recipes that we tend to turn to again and again. Who doesn’t love a classic pork chop, paired with some veggies, or a salad. With Spring having arrived here in St. Louis, my asparagus and herbs are already growing like crazy in my garden and I already see signs of baby peppers. I wanted to update our normal pork chop recipe with a fun twist for Spring. Enter in these delicious, Lemon Thyme Pork Chops with Quinoa, Asparagus & Red Peppers. It’s an entire meal in itself and is a quick and easy recipe to boot. Can’t beat that, since easy and quick are the name of the game in this house.

As usual, the real test is, can I get five hungry teenagers and a picky toddler to eat it? Success! They devoured them and several wanted more. The light lemon and thyme flavor was just what the pork chops needed. Serving them over a bed of quinoa tossed with fresh asparagus and red peppers was the perfect addition to fill everyone up.

I got a chance to use my  new Farberware New Traditions Cookware in Aqua to make this meal, and I just loved how great it was. You can find out more about that below AND you can enter to win your own Farberware New Traditions Cookware set.

Why would I not choose Jalapeno Poppers for my Letter J for the Blogging A to Z Challenge? I seem to use Jalapeno’s for the letter J every year. Obviously either I’m not creative or I really love Jalapeno’s. (It’s the second one, btw) Last year I made these delicious Spicy Jalapeno Bacon Deviled Eggs…

Ice Cream Bread – Two Ingredient Recipes – Pineapple Coconut

The first time I saw this Ice Cream Bread, I thought to myself, there is no way that two ingredients are going to make a loaf of bread. It’s simply not possible. Bread takes tons of steps, and kneading and rising and… well, anyone who has ever made bread from scratch knows that it takes…

Blueberry Philadelphia Cream Cheese Parfaits #SpreadTheFlavor #shop

When my children were very little, I used to create fun, fast desserts that only took a few minutes to make. Why? Because their patience levels were almost non-existent. Well that, and they went to bed a lot earlier back then so they didn’t have time to wait for some long dessert to finish cooking….
