This is a simple but tasty recipe that goes back a few generations on my mom's side of the family. It's one of my favorites in wintertime. In honor of Dad, who liked the cornbread more than he did the beans, I added a bonus recipe for Tennessee Corn Pone, which you can make with the leftover beans when you're bored with eating them on their own! (The beans should be juicy.)
Since I can remember, my family has enjoyed black eyed peas and other savory side dishes on New Year's Day to symbolize the good luck and fortune we want to invite into our new year. This illustration depicts our recipe (with a few modern updates) and shows a family enjoying the tradition. As I was finalizing this illustration I found some old stationery my late mother had written some recipes on. It was such a treat to be able to include it in this drawing about family traditions.
This illustration is about my father-in-law's family recipe of Caribbean kidney beans. These are great as a side dish and have been a great way for me to bond with my in-laws, teaching me how to cook and making me part of the family. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Ribollita is a traditional recipe from the place where I come from, Tuscany, and in it there are, obviously, beans! Hope you like it ;-) It means re-cooked because you have to cook it twice, and also it is known that the day after you cook it, Ribollita is even better tasting.
Trying to eat every day healthier, this is a recipe we make often at home and we love it!
It has became some of of a tradition on Friday night. We do all the recipe together and then, beer on hand, we enjoy it together while chatting about the week.
AZÚCAR!, as Cuban artist Celia Cruz would sing, is the secret to this Christmas dish I look forward to every holiday. My grandma, and now my mom have been cooking it up for our gatherings for years ever since I could remember. Served over white rice with a side of Yuca, as well as a choice of meat (typically pork from /la caja china/ for my family), the subtle sweetness of these beans paired with the savory notes of the rest of the sides is unlike any other. Full recipe coming to my website, alyssamariag.com, soon; add a little sugar and enjoy!
