I'm taking a break from knitting and starting a cooking blog. I hope you guys will check it out and follow me. www.bos-bowl.com
Awesome site, man. I grew up in Alabama and had to eat a lot of black eyed peas on New Year's (and some other days, too, since my granny grew them in her garden). Never thought about having them like you did. Might have to try that...which means I will send the recipe to my mom and ask her to make it for me when I am home. Cooking beans is not my forte. But that white chocolate and lemon cake I will try this weekend!
Black-eyed peas is only half of the equation- don't forget the "greens".
Really nice website. And tasty looking recipes too! I’d never heard of Hoppin’ John before this year. And then on New Year’s Day I was at my local Safeway here in San Francisco and in the produce section they had plastic tubs of fresh black eyed peas with a Hoppin’ John recipe on the container. I was intrigued. I got some and went home and googled it. I ended up sauteing onion and celery in bacon grease, adding in the beans and some chicken stock. I dressed it with some apple cider vinegar and pico de gallo (tomato, onion, cilantro and jalapeno). It rocked! Hella yummy! I also never heard of limoncello before either. I had to google that too. Wikipedia says it’s only fairly recently become known outside of Italy. Sounds delicious.
I'm glad all of yall liked it. Be sure to bookmark the page or click the follow me link, I promise its only going to get better. Thank you all for looking.
You have some tasty looking dishes there! Your photography/presentation is great - really makes the dishes look appetizing. I'm going to have to try the white chocolate Limoncello cake and the coconut lime panna cotta. Thanks!
I'm really glad you liked it. You really should start back cooking..wink..wink
Ah...Southern gallantry. Thanks for the perceived compliment. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
Just took a peek, Robert. Really nice blog. I like the way you present the recipes and a bit of backstory to round them out. I may have to start cooking again! LOL Seriously, though, I wish you lots of luck with it. Thanks for sharing. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
