Build a barn, of course.

Hoppin John - A New Year in Vermont!




Happy New Year!
We're having black-eyed peas once again, so I'm reposting for your pleasure. What I'm doing differently this year is serving seared scallops on a bed of BEP.
Cheers, Sue!

Here is a New Vermont twist on the Southern tradition of Black-Eyed Peas on News Years Day.   Just-tender peas are finished as a warm salad with bacon, onion, maple syrup and piquant spices.

Turkey Gumbo



Turkey gumbo! Complex, savory, spicy, and satisfying, it's THE best use I've found for leftover dark meat.

Skillet cornbread dressing





This is an old family recipe from my husband's family: real Southern skillet cornbread dressing. I am reposting this because I recently made my first visit to El Dorado, Arkansas for a family event.  I was overwhelmed with the welcome I received, and the warmth and friendliness of these people;  I think their character is reflected in this recipe.  Cheers, Sue

Repost - Spring Flatbread with Ham and Snap Peas




Here is a Springtime flatbread, featuring the first new peas and fresh herbs from the garden, an aged Reblochon cheese, and wonderful Vermont ham.  On a crisp, quick sourdough pizza crust, this is a memorable combination of flavors.
