Homemade Refried Beans

Homemade Refried Beans by John Spottiswood

I'm ashamed to say that though I LOVE refried beans, this is the first time I've ever made them myself. It's just so easy to buy them in a can, or at a mexican restaurant, that I haven't bothered.

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Onions

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Onions by K. Garner

This is Yummy and makes your Swiss Chard taste the best it can. This is a four-star recipe from Epicurious.
