I'm a Graphic Artist and have had a variety of jobs throughout the years. I actually started out as a Draftsman then went back to school and studied Scientific and Technical Illustration. Then I moved on to Graphics. I've worked at a large Medical Instrument company illustrating how to use the instruments. I also worked in a book company in the Pre Press Department. Every job worked as a stepping stone to the next. Then I moved on to a Greeting Card company that made everything from cards to silk screened items. Eventually I ended up working for some local printers.

Honey's Portuguese Beans by Deb Antram

Chino Valley, AZ, US


This recipe is probably 100 years old. I named it after my grandmother, who I called "Honey". This was her mother's recipe. Her mother came to this country from the Azores in 1904, as a widow with 5 children. She brought the oldest, a son, and the youngest, my grandmother with her. As she earned money cooking on Ranches in the San Francisco Bay Area, she was able to bring her other three children to the United States.

I never knew they had "Pink Beans" as this recipe calls for. I was sure the local market wouldn't have them, but there they were. My husband loves these beans and he says he has never tasted anything like them. I serve with some crusty garlic bread. Always delicious.
