Peach Glazed Pork Chops


These peach glazed pork chops are slow-cooked to perfection and topped with an authentically Southern can of Luck's Fried Peaches.

I love a good pork chop. And when you live in the South, peaches are basically a food group of their own. Add them both together, and you have a tender, fruity flavored dish that is sure to please every member of the family.

This week I decided to switch up my regular menu and add a bit of flavor to our table-- Peach Glazed Pork Chops. Not only are they pretty to look at, but according to Little J they are "the best chops ever!" Which in kid terms, means your food is worthy of a Michelin star. And since my kiddo doesn't hand those out very often, it's pretty safe to say these chops are pretty darn good.

We're 14 days away from Halloween and I'm still putting together a few fun recipes to make your "spooky day" even spookier. Since my kiddo is still a bit on the young side, I tend to create kid-friendly Halloween Treats and leave the scary stuff for the older kids.

This week I've partnered with Kellogs and I'm featuring a super simple and adorable Halloween Treat for your upcoming Halloween festivities. Though I didn't necessarily need all the Kellogs Snack Packs pictured below for the recipe itself, I try to keep our house stocked with treats for Little J and her friends around this time of the year. And if we're being honest, I'm a big fan of Rice Krispies Treats®. They've been making memories for kids and parents alike for generations, and it's nice to be able to share that with my own kiddo.

A Bit of Love to the World Today



This morning I randomly woke up at 2:00 AM. I suppose that's not exactly unusual when you're 4 month pregnant. I opened up my phone and saw the latest news alert about the shooting in Las Vegas. At that time, the death toll was only at 2. I went back to sleep praying it wouldn't go any higher.

When I woke up this morning to get Little J ready for school, the toll had jumped to 50. By the end of the day that number will likely climb again.
