  1. So good ~ reminds me of Grandma. I added tiny pearl onions
  2. This dish was relatively easy to make. I used frozen peas and cooked them according to package directions and then did not saute them as long, approximately 7 minutes. Did not have fresh parsley but did use fresh nutmeg which adds such dimension to this dish. Thanks
  3. Wow this was very good and brought back memories of my granny and her creamed peas. Very simple and very good. Added some finely chopped onions when I melted the butter. Yummy
  4. It's a nice twist to green peas and recommend you trying it. I'm not a green pea fan; however, this recipe was good. DH went back for seconds. I accidentally left out the parsley, but no problem.
  5. Loved these peas! Very easy to make and tasted fantastic! Even my 6 y/o pea hating son ate these. AMAZING!! We all loved this. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I will be making it often.


I am 31, and a cytotechnologist in the Navy (Don't know what it is? Don't feel bad, few people do)with just under 10 years to retirement. Kerrbear is my wife and we have two GREAT kids, Aidyn (4) and Kelsi (2). Next to my family hockey is my favorite thing in the world, watching, playing, anything to do with hockey, in particular my sons hockey and the Vancouver Canucks. After hockey cooking is the other thing I really enjoy. I'm very open to trying new foods of all cuisines, however the one thing I refuse to try is balut. I could not see myself trying it without MUCH help from a bottle of something very strong.
