I almost never eat black-eyed peas (except for good luck on New Year’s day) and now I am wondering why. Because they are SO flipping awesome. Like other beans, there are a great source of protein for a vegan or vegetarian diet. And they have a mild almost sweet flavor.

It’s a winner of a recipe. I played with it a bit. Changed some of the veggies and spices. Added butternut squash, carrots and turnips. The result is the perfect fall stew with a little twist.

I love having homemade granola in the house. It’s so easy to make and the variations are endless.

I’m amazed by how much they pack into this tiny little storefront. But I always seem to find exactly what I need whenever I stop in.
