*Maple Glazed Porkchops*

Hello, today I'm posting a Maple Glazed pork chop recipe. I love the smell of maple cooking and the anticipation of getting to eat it and what it is cooked or baked in or on. As I have said before, I normally don't get to eat pork chops. occasionally I will cook something for myself and something my fiance' likes. Making 2 meals is not something I like to do very often. Well, enjoy!
