May be made a day ahead of time. Wrapped and stored in frig, ready to cook when everyone is ready to smell the lovely fragrance of the holiday. Very low fat version if made without the turkey, baked in casserole. We always add brussel sprouts and sometimes potatoes to the roasting pan. Makes delicious pan roasted veggies easy peasy.

A lot better tasting and a lot better for you than the canned sauce! Serve it for your special holiday meals. Also delicious on a turkey or cream cheese sandwich!

Hoppin' John is traditionally made on New Year's Day to bring good luck and prosperity throughout the entire calendar year. It's somewhere between a pilaf, a jambalaya, and Jamaican peas and rice.

Slow Cooker SPICY Black-Eyed Peas
(no ratings)

Black-eyed peas grab some heat and spice from jalapeno peppers and cumin in this flavorful slow cooker preparation that also includes diced ham, bacon, bell peppers, onion, and garlic.

This is VERY SPICY if you follow the recipe exactly. If you want to cool it down cut the spices down!
