Happy New Year...

Here is to a happy and healthy 2012! If you are superstitious and believe in getting in your greens and black eyed peas, I highly recommend this soup recipe from the Neely's. It has an unexpected spicy flavor and is so good! I omitted the bacon, subbed out the fresh swiss chard for a drained can of collard greens (because I like to make things easy like that...) and used black eyed peas.

The picture isn't the best so trust me on this one. It is also a great way to use up any leftover ham from Christmas. Bonus!

Yum! I made this and posted on my blog not to long ago I however did not leave out the bacon and it was soooo good. :) I have a different one to try today.

Happy New Year!

I'll have to trust you on this one as none of those ingredients are on my grocery list...I know, poor West Coast folks that have no idea what's good for us :)!

Happy New Year and I'm glad you enjoyed your greens and black eyed peas!

I'm on my way to check out your recipe. I love soup. Collard greens? Huh? I'm west coast too. I've never had them but I'm willing to give it a try:)

This is certainly one to try. I love collard greens! I often use them instead of wraps for my "sandwiches". Yum and healthy!
