Hoppin John

Tradition says that if you serve black eyed peas for new years it will bring you good fortune!  A big batch of Hoppin John will hopefully bring fortune to each of us, but, I do know it will certainly bring warmth to your kitchen and dining rooms.

Hoppin' John

Happy (almost) New Year!  No fancy post here.  No recap of 2012;  we love all our recipes *smile*  Just genuine gratitude.  We wanted to take a moment to say we have enjoyed spending the year together in this virtual world.  As we begin the journey into a new year, we wanted to wish each and every one of you a year filled with love, joy and prosperity.  This week at The Back Burner we will be sharing black eyed pea recipes, and Hoppin’ John just happens to be one of our favorites.  We even enjoy it throughout the year.




Happy New Year!

Denise & Lenny
