    I made this a while ago and I loved it! I did make some substitutions, according to what I had on hand. I used almonds instead of pecans and dried cranberries in place of the raisins.

    I have made this twice now and didn't have a bag of just peas on hand either time, so subbed a bag of mixed veggies and it turned out WONDERFUL both times. Served it as a side with garlic tilapia. This is an awesome dish that I will make often. Thanks so much for posting. Delicious!

    I loved this! I had no peas on hand so I usesd frozen green beans. I also scaled this down to about 4.5 servings. Loved the color and flavors this dish had! Made for ZWT 3!

    Paula, this was excellent. I made it up in the morning as we were going to be gone all day and reheated for dinner. Served with Bourbon-glazed pork chops, #155231, and a tossed garden salad. Thanks for posting

I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
