Smothered Cabbage with Bacon and a Vitamix Giveaway!


It's the last day to enter the Vitamix Giveaway (entry below).

It's almost New Years Day and no southern kitchen would be caught without a big pot of smothered cabbage to bring in the New Year!

Smothered cabbage is really simple to make, just cook up some bacon, use that bacon grease to saute your onions and peppers in and add the cabbage, a little broth and apple cider vinegar and that's it.

After about 30 minutes you have smothered cabbage...full of flavor and ready to eat!

Grab a fork and some black eyed peas (which I will be posting tomorrow) and it's time to ring in the New Year!

Let's Eat People!!!!!

I must confess I love great food. I decided to create The Creole Contessa blog after cooking and eating a great meal with my family Big Goo the hubby of almost twenty years and my lil’ Contessa Summer aka “Baby Girl." I told Big Goo and Baby Girl, it is just not fair to not share these great recipes with the world; and the Creole Contessa blog was born.
