Southern Green Bean Casserole

"Green bean casserole is one of my favorite foods and something I always look forward to as the holidays approach. Recently, I've discovered that I can cook it more than twice a year- just because it goes nicely with dinner! This Southern-style recipe is not your typical green bean casserole, but I promise it won't disappoint- mainly because of a lot of wiggle room to account for individual taste. (Note: this recipe makes 12 servings, so it's great for gatherings, but you can easily half all of the ingredients for your typical family dinner)"

I'm a SAHM of a 7 yo girl and 3 yo boy. I'm just FINALLY getting into the groove of cooking without following along line per line and teaspoon by teaspoon! My DH is thrilled! I LOVE my crockpot. There's nothing like coming in after a busy afternoon of school pickup and errands knowing dinner is at least three-quarters of the way ready! Recipe Zaar is the first place I go for recipes, and nearly everything I cook has come either directly from here or was modified for my picky eaters. My husband loves the first time I try a Zaar recipe- it's almost always actually good! That's not always so for something passed on from memory by friends or relatives!
