Mostly about food, this blog is just a place for me to throw things that are of interest to me. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by an look around. This represents just some of the stops on the various pathways that this amateur home cook finds himself.

You may find that these foods tend toward protein and away from carbohydrates - this is due to diabetic issues, so I try to only sparingly use carbs, and good ones at that. Of course, sometimes I forget....

Feel free to drop me a line with any suggestions or just to let me know what you think. Thanks!

Caramelized Green Beans



  • 1 pound of fresh green beans, plus or minus
  • 2-3 tbsp of bacon grease
  • 1/4 cup cooked crumbled bacon
  • 2-3 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 cup onion, chopped small
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup of roasted red pepper, diced
  • 1 tsp salt and pepper to taste



Remove the stem ends of the green beans by either snapping or cutting them off.  Remove the strings, if any.  Melt the bacon fat in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and onions and cook until starting to wilt.  Add the bacon and saute until soft.  Add in the beans and toss together until beans are coated.

 Cook for a few minutes until the beans brighten up green.  Add in the rest of the ingredients  and mix well, then stirring occasionally as the stock reduces.  Increase heat to medium high and stir until beans start to caramelize.  Remove from heat and serve hot.

 Here are the finished beans as part of a nice all-veggie dinner, a rarity for me.

Where's the Beef? Hee hee! I had to, I'm sorry. :) Looks like another great one to try! I usually do onions and bacon in my beans but you have a few extra ingredients that I think would make them even better. Yes I must try!
