Featured Recipe: Black-eyed Pea Salad
You say peas, I think black-eyed. Is there any other kind? Not for this Southern gal. That’s especially true when eating peas makes all the difference for good luck in the New Year. Trouble is, I have a heck of a time convincing everybody else of the importance of these little spotted jewels.
For years I cooked a caldron of dried peas, just like my mother did and my grandmother did before her. Then I would spend the whole first week of the New Year eating peas every day to get rid of them.
So I came up with a Black-eyed Pea Salad to take care of the extras. This salad is hearty enough to make an entree for New Year’s lunch or serves as a suitable side dish.While everyone doesn't like a bowl full of peas like I do, just about everyone loves black eyed pea salad.

What you're saying..
You two are my life-savers! One day, in a coffee-house bookstore, I discovered a strange and mesmerizing cookbook ... and I had to tell you how much I've used and appreciated your approach to cooking. Your cookbook literally changed our lives. You have probably brought more families to the dinner table at home than you can know. And for that, I and my loved ones are grateful.
