Steve1 was kind enough to post this recipe after I posted a request for it. I made it on New Years and it was fabulous! It was easy to assemble, used readily available ingredients and the taste was great! The best black-eyed peas I've ever had! I know what I'm cooking every New Years from now until eternity! Thanks so much for posting!
