Grandma’s Pinto Beans – Sweet Southern Blue

I’m not a big fan of beans. I don’t really like any type of beans except for green beans and pinto beans cooked the way my grandmother made them. As a child, I remember her serving them in a large brown crock with onion and cornbread. When I grew up and had a family of […]

I’m hoping that since you are here looking at brussels sprouts, you don’t think they are yucky, icky, or discusting. I can’t say that I always loved them.

FAUX LOADED POTATO CASSEROLE | Sweet Southern Blue

  I have seen this recipe around for years but I kept thinking that it couldn’t possibly be good.  The faux comes in because you substitute healthier cauliflower for the carb-laden potatoes.  In my mind,the couldn’t possibly be a good trade.  How many people really like cooked cauliflower? The change came while visiting my daughter. […]
