Mardi Gras King Cake
Wow! This was amazing. I took some to a friend and she made me promise she didn't have to wait another year for mardi gras to come around before she got more. My son doesn't like pecans so I had used almond meal in place of them, and it was incredible. On one of them, I added almond extract to the icing. The only thing odd was the cooking time. I cooked one at a time rather than together as they wouldn't fit together in the oven, and the first one burned as it only took the second one 15 minutes to bake. But I'll definitely be making this for special breakfasts as well as fat tuesday.

Southern Ham and Brown Beans
Thank you for your recipe. This was exactly what I was looking for. Perfect southern pintos to accompany fried catfish. These are also good to use leftovers to mash for refried beans for burritos. I didn't have a hamhock so I used a half pound of Petit Jean ham cooked in thru the whole process.

Ham and Beans
This was way too sweet for my family. I think though, this recipe has potential as a great side dish for BBQ as a substitute for traditional baked beans. I think cutting back the ham or substituting with bacon to make it more of a side dish would make it really good. I will try it out and post it if it works out. This time, I sauted the onions and ham in 2tbsp butter before adding the rest of the ingredients to the dutch oven . I used 1/2 tsp garlic salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, and 1/2 tsp sea salt for the season to taste part. And it still could not cut the sweetness. I did cut the cayenne to 1/8tsp because my hubby doesn't like spicy at all. The black pepper was too much for him. I cooked it extra long to make them extra creamy. Just read the baking soda trick. Will try that next time to cut down on cooking time.
