Lucky Slaw

Joyce Lowery


Black-eyed peas and cabbage...a light way to get two of the necessary foods for Good Luck on New Year's Day. Don't forget to open the front and back door at the same time to let the Bad Luck of the previous year out! This recipe reminds me of my college days. My roommate, Dianna and I would cook occasionally. Whenever we cooked, we always made cole slaw and black eyed peas. When we ate leftovers, we would mix the coleslaw and the black-eyed peas together.

How to Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

Kitchen Crew @JustaPinch

They pack protein into a salad, are a fantastic on-the-go breakfast and a necessity for making deviled eggs. Hard boiled eggs are fantastic but are a bit intimidating to cooks....
