With New Year’s Day coming up fast, I thought I’d share some of my family’s classic must have recipes for the big New Year’s Day meal!
First up is black eyed pea. These are a must for New Year’s Day on Southern tables. I make mine in the crock pot with a smoked turkey leg. This is a fuss free way to have perfectly cooked black eyed peas.
Fried Apples make an amazing side dish and this recipe is a great copycat version of the ones you get at Cracker Barrel.
Next up greens! In this post I show you how to make fresh greens from collards, but this recipe works for turnip greens as well. Also on this post, learn how to make that beloved clear hot pepper sauce that is so good on greens, beans, and anything else you add it to. For quicker greens, click here.
How about some of Mama’s Mexican Cornbread? It is so good it could just about be a meal in and of itself!
And there are a couple other Cornbread Recipes to consider:

What are you most looking forward to in 2021?
I know we are all hoping for some gradual change to more normal times, but besides that, what else do you hope for in 2021?
I love hearing from you. Your comments are what make this a conversation!
