  1. Green beans with Old Bay… I knew I could count on you to combine two of my favorites in a new & unique way! (Can only imagine how good this will taste when fresh green beans are back in season, too — a quick steam, followed by a saute & a sprinkle… sigh.) I’ve made many a Green Bean Casserole over the years ;), but your revised edition appeals to me immensely. Thanks, Ally!

    1. Oh, my Kimmmeee, these beans are to DIE for!! I’m telling you, that casserole will be but a fleeting memory! They’re even good at room temp or cold…I wolfed ’em down, and the next and next days, well, if there’s any left, oh yeah…fabulous!! xoxo
