I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

A classic pairing or rice and black beans that's tasty, healthy and economical. Serve it as a casserole on it's own or alongside fish or chicken.

1/2 cup diced bell pepper
2 tsps minced garlic
3/4 cup canned black beans (more if not having with a meat protein)

3 dashes Tabasco sauce
1/2 cup chicken broth (vegetable broth if you're keeping vegetarian)
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsps oregano
salt and pepper to taste
2 1/2 cups cooked white rice (or brown if you want healthier)
fresh parsley

Sauté onion and bell peppers in hot oil for 2 minutes then add the garlic for 1 minute. Add the black beans, apple cider vinegar, Tabasco and broth and bring to a boil. Then simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Stir in the cumin, oregano, salt, pepper and cooked rice and heat through. Taste and adjust seasonings and Tabasco to your taste.

Garnish with fresh chopped parsley.
