  1. I just love your blog. I am dieting South Beach method and this recipe fits the bill for Phase Two. I know what Chicken Sausage is but what is "Buffalo" Chicken Sausage? Is there a brand you could suggest? Fran from Texas

  2. Sounds great- DH will love the sausage version- I'll leave that out for me. So glad you discovered black eyed peas- I think they are sooo good. It's a southern tradition to eat them on New Years Day for good luck. :)

  3. Fran - Buffalo chicken sausage is just a spicy version of them - we used the Al Fresco brand that we got from Costco.

    Cheryl - That's good to know! I'll have to remember that next New Years!
