“Mom use to open a box of Creamed Peas and Pearl Onions - I loved that stuff ! The other day I remembered and went in search of a quick and easy recipe. I found hard to make ones, complicated ones, and pretty close ones....put them together and came up with this one that was pretty much " just right."”
