cooking homemade meals




Good ole butterbeans! My dad started farming butterbeans and peas when I was in high school, and I worked for him every summer delivering butterbeans to different vendors around South Carolina. This helped me earn the title of “Butterbean Queen.”

Butterbeans go well with a lot of different meals, but my personal favorite is Chicken Perlo.
