  1. These were really good. I steamed them in the microwave, served warm sprinkled with sauce (which I used dry ground mustard) then sprinkled with some salt, and pepper and it was delicious. A very healthy way to eat green beans. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
  2. What a nice way to dresses up fresh beans. The lemon and dill really bring a nice brightness to fresh beans and the mustard adds a nice tangy depth. Made as written and will be making again. Thanks so much for the post.


<p>I am a stay at home mom with&nbsp;5 wonderful children. When I have time I love to scrapbook and journal. I also crochet and do cross-stitch and enjoy reading my Bible. Sometimes I am all into trying new things then other times I only want old standbys. I like to get veggies into my picky kids by sneaking them in where they were not expecting them. I've learned that its improtant to try new things 2 or 3 times before you can really consider it rejected. Sometimes the second time you offer it to them they will scarf it down, when the first time they barely got down the mandatory taste bite. Go figure.</p> 8725182"
