Good Ham Bean Soup
Very Good 4.3/5
(54 ratings)

Time to Pick a Bone
You can make a good ham and bean soup using just cubes of ham alone, but to get the best flavor you should use a ham bone. You can get your ham bone from the butcher, since they will often give them away or sell them very cheaply, or you can use a leftover bone from a ham that you have served for dinner.

If you are making a ham for dinner, then any leftover ham can be used in the soup as well. In fact, the best ham and bean soup recipes use both ham bones as well as cubes of ham.

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake
Very Good 4.5/5

So very moist and NO ADDED eggs or oil!
Obviously mayo is made from eggs and oil. Also, I use Hellman's (Best Foods) Light Mayo but it is still pretty healthy with regular. Moistest cake ever though. The family loves it. For real decadence frost with Sander's Frosting. YUM!

No fat No sugar! You can also find the Natures sweet dark chocolate bars there. Both can be bought at wholesale on Please use sponsor #21696902 as I get credit for introducing you to the site.
