    Yum yum. I used a dark beer since it was specified. It was a very good side dish. Thank you!

    Verry good. I used canned green beans as I am not a fan of frozen beans. I took diners advice and left out the cornstarch and we all really enjoyed these.

    Tasty beans!!! I used canned green beans instead of frozen and used chopped onion, which I used alot more of than 2 teaspoons(love onions), otherwise made a written. Would definitely make again, but next time might cut the cornstarch to 1 tsp or just leave it out!! Thanks for sharing. Made for potluck tag.


I have two wonderful kids,6 and 12, my youngest loves to help in the kitchen. His specialties are homemade noodles and macaroni salad. My daughter loves all things macaroni and cheese! <br> In the summers, we spend a lot of time at the lake and on our four-wheelers. The littlest has started T-ball this year, and we are getting a big kick out of watching those little guys play. DD is into basketball and is my biggest helper. <br>I am not a baker. However; I have found many delicious recipes on this site that are challenging my baking abilities. My kids are encouraging me to keep polishing up my baking skills! <br>I love to collect cookbooks! Finding this site was a stroke of luck. Now, I can keep all my favorite recipes in one place, and put the less used books away to make room for new ones! <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket></a> <br><img src=> <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <br><img src=> <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <br> <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <br><img src=><img src=> <br><a href= title=banner3 by *sparkly*, on Flickr><img src= width=500 height=250 alt=banner3 /></a>
