Let me just say thank you for stopping by. I think this will be fun!!
PLEASE DO NOT share a recipe you have not personally made. The main point of this blog is for someone living where you are can make the recipe, know where to find the ingredients and know that it’s tasty.
To share a recipe click on the comment section of this post and type in your recipe there. Type it up in the “recipes for dummies” mindset being overly descriptive. Keep in mind that we are in a multi-cultural environment and you might need to explain what certain things are. (i.e. What we call cilantro in Texas is called coriander in Singapore.)
1. What store or market you purchased your items from and where the store is located.
2. What country you made it in.
3. Whether it’s a snack, breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, side dish or other food item.
4. What type of food it is. i.e. Italian, Chinese, Mexican, American, etc.
5. If there are specific tools involved, did you bring them with you from your home country or can you find them in the country you stated above?
6. Any other helpful information you would like to add.
I will then copy your recipe and info into a blog post, tag it accordingly and delete your original “comment” from this comment section as soon as it’s posted.

Black-Eyed Pea Stew (submitted by Janet Hickner)
This is a very typical evening meal if you are in the Deep South in America. All of the ingredients were purchased at Kroger in Texas and are common here. Wonderful on a cold night served with corn bread.
2 cups dried black-eyed peas
oil of your choice (to sauté the onion)
1 medium chopped yellow onion
1 package turkey kielbasa (or whatever sausage and the amount you like) cut into pieces
32 oz box of chicken broth (or vegetable broth)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (or to taste)
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 bay leaves
1 TBSP cider vinegar
1 (28 -oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (12-oz) bag of greens (collard/mustard/turnip) or any greens you like – good with kale too
1. Sort and wash the peas and set aside
2. Heat some oil in nice, big pot – add onion and cook until tender
Add sausage and cook until lightly browned – 4 minutes or so
3. Stir in broth and bring to a simmer
Stir in black-eyed peas, salt, peppers, and bay leaves.
Cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until peas begin to soften.
(Uncover and cook 15 minutes or so or until liquid begins to thicken – or not – sometimes
I skip this step.)
4. Stir in the vinegar, tomatoes, and greens.
Simmer 10 minutes or so, stirring occasionally, until the greens are cooked just right.
Discard the bay leaves, if you can find them.
