Simple flavors that all work in tasty harmony? Yes, please! A tender bone-in pork chop gets a major flavor-boost with a crust of blue cheese crumbles, smoked almonds, and fresh chives. Along with honey-roasted carrots, this dish strikes a perfect balance for an easy weeknight meal that's a major flavor overachiever. Tip: To peel the carrot with less effort, lay it down on your cutting board, peel one half, rolling it as you peel. (Be sure to peel in a motion away from you!)
