Well I found one the other day that peaked my interest and when I made it the recipe was not only a WOW but is now on my list for top favorites especially if you love sundried tomatoes and basil pesto which I personally love to devour.

Weekly Ad Recipe - Slow Cooker Pork Chops www.cobornsblog.com

It’s the start of a new season and that means it’s time to get out the slow cooker. Here is a perfect recipe on the days you know you won’t have a lot of time after work. It was great! The pork chops were moist and the vegetables were tender with a lot of good flavor. If you don’t care for the flavor of basil you can leave it out. Enjoy… I did!
