Gravy Baked Pork Chops
I've been cooking this for years, the gravy is absolutely delicious, however, I add a lot more than one can. I put in 2 cans of golden mushroom and 2 cans of cream of mushroom. There just NEVER can be enough gravy in my opinion!!!

Best Black Beans
Can't really rate this, because I was just asking a question, but it sounds awesome, so I'm going with what I have a inner cooks feeling it would taste like. 5 stars! Can I use fresh black beans?? I was wondering why folks are saying 'fresh' black beans when they are out of a can. I grew black beans in my garden this year and can't for the life of me find any real fresh black bean recipe. Maybe I need to let them all dry then rehydrate?? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
