Creamy Philly Peas (Video and recipe)

No, I have not abandoned my blog. And I am so very sorry I have not been very active. I have been in a bit of a feeling like ass slump. You know that kind of slump right? K, now that we have that cleared up. I present you a delicious recipe for some scrumptious peas via video.
This is a video I submitted for The Real Women of Philadelphia contest .
If you foodies haven’t entered yet..get your video camera out and your Philly thinking hats on and enter the contest. It has been a blast. Each week I will post another video here on my blog so you cant see what an absolute dork I really am!
