    Suzanne Kohler's Note:

    Just a recipe I made up one cold day when I wanted a hearty, homemade stew (comfort food!) It was really good, so I shared it with a few friends. One friend called it: "Keisha's Mom's Black-Eyed Peas and Sweet Potato Stew" - adding my daughter's name. Sounds impressive! (This friend has made it more often than I have!) I like it because of the interesting taste and texture of the whole, fresh's great to have in the fall.

      What a tasty, healthy stew! I followed Kendra's suggestions and added heaping spoonfuls of the spices, and it had a great kick. Works great with brown rice - Thanks!

      I followed the recipe to the dot, and it turned out to be an decent dish but missing some more flavor. If I make it again, I would double all the spices.
