My first true passion is cooking. I enjoy all things cooking related: kitchen gadgets, food magazines, preparing the meal, and most definitely eating! Recipes, however, tend to be the most fun to share with an audience, so I’ll pass on one of my most favorite of side dish recipes that I stumbled upon not too long ago: Caramelized Green Beans with Pine Nuts (from the Everyday Food Magazine). Here’s my adapted version:
Directions: In a large skillet heat butter and oil over medium low. Add green beans and cover partially with lid. Cook, tossing occasionally, until green beans are browned in spots. Approx. 30 minutes. Add pine nuts and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and serve. Serves 4.
