Let’s Try This AGAIN! (recipes)

I gave up trying to post recipes on the last blog entry – ended up having to totally re-type all the recipes you will see below – but You’re Worth It! Here they are:

Ham & Beans

1 (16 oz) bag Great Northern beans
1/2 lb. diced, cooked extra lean ham
1 small onion, diced
1 large handful brown sugar
2 tsp. chicken bouillon
salt & pepper to taste
dash cayenne pepper
1 T. dried parsley

Rinse & sort beans in a large pot.
Add 8 C. cold water & let stand
overnight or at least 8 hours.
Drain and rinse beans. Return
beans to pot and add ham, onion,
brown sugar, bouillon, salt, pepper,
cayenne and parsley. Generously
cover with water. Bring to a boil;
reduce heat and simmer 1 1/2 to
2 hours until beans are tender.
Add more water if necessary during
cooking time. (re-season with salt,
pepper & brown sugar to taste)

Really Good Soup

Drain and reserve liquid from cooked

just barely covered with water. When

  1. tried the Bean,Bacon and Bleu cheese dip. Not impressed. It was too thick and had no clue as to what to use it on. Maybe, someone can help me and give me some guidance.

    • HI;
      Sorry you didn’t like the dip – the recipes posted are from various recipe sites (I try to post the site at the end of the recipe). They are not my recipes, only ones that sort of sounded good. Perhaps you could try it on crackers? Or maybe thin it a bit using a small amount of sour cream?
