Fresh Lemon Herb Green Bean Recipe

Fresh Lemon Herb Green Bean Recipe

One of the easiest things to grow in the garden is green beans.  No matter where you are, these hardy little plants can take a decent amount of heat or cold.  There are so many varieties, but they all have the same core flavor.  It is so easy to get stuck with just simply cooking them with onions, butter, salt and pepper.  Where I do love that good old southern, hearty green bean flavor, fresh can taste just as amazing.  Many of dinners I make need to be accompanied by a much lighter side item.  The latest way to serve…

Easy Southern Baked Beans Recipe

Easy Southern Baked Beans Recipe

I grew up with eating home cooked meals.  One of my all time favorites as a kid (and as an adult) was my  mom's baked beans.  The recipe was super simple, but so delicious. Now as a mom, I do a lot of cooking with some very classic recipes. After going to many get together's over the years, I have found that a majority of my friends and family in the Midwest use a major name canned baked beans. Growing up, I did not even know such a thing existed.  The closest I thought of canned baked beans was buying…
