Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

creole green beans

for a choice of side dish that goes well with many main courses, try these creole green beans.  fresh or canned green beans can be used and will be added last to the ingredient list.

to start the recipe, mix chopped celery, onion and green pepper into a skillet with a small amount of olive oil.  after translucent, add in one medium can of chopped tomatoes.  any brand will do, but one that has a nice herbal flavoring adds to the great taste of this recipe.

after the tomatoes are added, the last ingredient is the chopped green beans.  season to taste with salt and pepper and cook through until warm. if using fresh green beans, pre-cook the beans in water prior to adding last to the dish. 

this side dish is great with baked fish or chicken.  it is not too zesty but much tastier then plain green beans.
