BonniE !


Don't let the simplicity of this recipe fool you. This is comfort food at its best! Not a lot of fancy ingredients, just a lot of great flavor. The star of the show is the ham bone and beans. Serve it with some nice crusty bread, and you will definitely want seconds. This recipe is a creation from my husband, Bill, who also has a love of good home cooking. I am pleased to share it with you. Enjoy!
