OK, I have been remiss.  I haven't visited this blog lately because LIFE keeps getting the the way. 

Just got an email from someone who said my dear husband is on the radio right now telling people to visit my blog for Thanksgiving recipes.  That's fine.  In fact, that's awesome.  Enjoy!  Only problem is, the recipe that started all this interest isn't yet on my blog.  Shame on me.

So, for everyone who asked, here's my recipe for PEAS ROCKEFELLER.  They are simple and simply divine!  Mine are already made and in the fridge to be heated up tomorrow.  You can seriously throw this together in minutes and your family will RAVE! 


1 stick of butter
1 tbsp of olive oil
2 tbsp chopped garlic
4 cans of petit pois peas (reserve 1 can's liquid)
herbs de provence
Peychaud bitters
Italian breadcrumbs

Melt the butter with the olive oil.  Add the garlice and saute till you can smell the nutty garlic flavor.  DON'T BROWN THE GARLIC - it will turn bitter.  Now add all the peas at once.  Add herbs de provence - app. a tblsp.  Stir them around.  When they start to simmer, add several (your taste) dashes of Peychaud bitters. Add breadcrumbs and pea liquid.  Stir.  Allow it all to simmer to thicken the sauce. Done!

My kids call these 'fancy peas.' I call them 'easy peasy.'



  1. hi this is a bit like i do it but, i do something like this in a fry pan and drop a few eggs in it around the pan , one in middle, one per person if possible,if your not severing a crowd, just your family, cover till eggs are pouched or longer if you like eggs a bit harder.

  2. How wonderful to take something I would serve and dress it up. This sounds so good! I can't wait to see the faces and hear the comments when they bite into this one. Great to have a new trick up my sleeve. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Those sound delish! My daughter just said She despises green peas, but I know she'd like these if she took a taste. By the way, she's 'almost 50, not a child.

  4. I've enjoyed browsing through your blog. So many of your dishes remind me of my own childhood!
