Baby Smiles Peas

Actually I’m pondering how dumb this kid is….

  1. Hi Brianne – Thanks for linking to our recipe! (You might be surprised – you could end up liking our Pearl Onions afterall! I wasn’t a huge fan until I tried my husband’s recipe…) 🙂 Have a great weekend!

    1. Haha, Martha, I’ll have to try them, but you’ll notice my recipes that have onion usually only have just enough for flavor. I have a skittish tummy that can’t have too much onion :-). But they look so nice and creamy!! I am visiting my aunt for thanksgiving. So will bring your recipe!
