Garlic Almond Green Beans

"This is another holiday favorite side dish. The green beans are crunchy if you don't cook them too long and the garlic and almonds give it an extra crunch. Yum"

    These went great with our Easter feast of pork tenderloin and garlic mashed potatoes with chunky applesauce on the side. This is one of my favorite ways to make green beans. You should try it!

    I love fresh green beans. These are perfect. I steamed them for 8 minutes along with the garlic. The almonds were put into the pan and lightly toasted, beans and garlic stirred in along with a touch of the olive oil. The beans were topped off with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. A definite repeat recipe.


I don't think there's anything better than spending time with family and friends and enjoying delicious food together. I just love food. I love reading about food, writing about food, cooking food and.. not surprisingly, eating food. My latest passion is food-photography! I'm still learning a lot, but I'm trying to post photos with all my recipes and reviews. I read recipe books, magazines and food blogs like novels. I get such satisfaction when someone enjoys a meal or dessert that I have prepared. It is the biggest compliment to me when my family and friends rave about my cooking. There are so many terrific recipes on this site. If I'm looking for something, I'm sure to find it here. I do have stacks of my own favorite recipes which I am slowly but surely getting in my cookbooks here . I have had so many awesome reviews and fabulous photos taken of my recipes... I try to thank everyone personally .. I sincerely appreciate each and every review and or comment left. I know it takes time to photograph and upload photos - So I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for finding and trying my recipes and taking the extra effort...
