Every year I promise myself that I am going to make some amazing culinary feat of deliciousness involving black-eyed peas to blog about for New Year’s Day.

And I don’t.

So, instead I’m going to repost two tasty recipes that are not only delicious and healthy, but will also help revive your liver after your New Year’s Eve celebrations.

First we have the Mighty Minestrone Soup, which is a great platform to use up assorted veggies from your fridge.

If you’re too hungover short on time to wait for the black-eyed peas to cook up from dried, try this vibrant green soup, subbing canned black-eyed peas for the white beans.

Have a safe and happy New Year’s!

    I always forget about that black eyed pea thing too – it’s not a new year’s tradition in Saskatchewan. Minestrone’s always great too! Happy holidays!

    Happy New Year to you too, Kris! May 2012 bring you delightful surprises and see your dearest dream come true. (And, if that’s not too much to ask of that shiny new year, may it give us an opportunity to hang out together again!)

    Hey Kris, happy new year =)

    I made your “Ms. Weasley magically easy fudge” for the Holidays, but it didn’t work out so well(except for the taste, it was amazing!). I followed the directions exactaly as on the blog, left in the refrigerator for about 6 hours and it didn’t became solid…the top was hard(and breaking) and the bottom was almost liquid, and it was a thin layer of fudge =(

    What could I have done wrong?

    Best regards!

      Hi Flavia-

      Hmm… the cocoa butter in the chocolate chips should have easily firmed it up. What kind of chocolate chips and margarine did you use?
