Let me start by saying that I have never read Kathryn Stockett's New York Times bestselling novel, "The Help." So when I was invited to screen the new highly anticipated movie based on her book, I had no idea what to expect.
I met Alyson Hannigan at a lovely little cafe on a sunny day in Santa Monica, Calif. (Life is tough, right?) She wasn't the immature, sometimes-childish character we're used to seeing her portray (and she definitely didn't mention band camp). Instead, she was a well-put-together, smart and gracious grown-up who won me over the second she arrived.

ModernMom was delighted at the opportunity to meet the adorable Jennifer Garner in sunny Los Angeles, Calif. Although we interviewed her in Tinseltown, Jen was anything but a typical Hollywood hotshot. She was every bit as lovely as we imagined (and she reads ModernMom!).

These pork chops are delicious and the sauce is to die for! Even my picky daughter scarfed it down. The total cook time is about 75 minutes, but you can multi-task while the chops are on the stove.
