Logan's Brown Butter Baby Lima Beans And Ham - this comforting dish is a friends recipe using baby lima beans and ham and then cooked in a browned butter sauce. I'd like to introduce you to my foodie sister and dear friend, Sherri. Sherri and I met when I won the National Flour Power! Competition. Part of my winning was to attend a live Showcase event held in Franklin Tennessee where I recreated my winning cake in front of a large audience of cooks. Sherri, was the emcee of the event, as a previous winner with her "Smokin' Baby Got Back Ribs." What a fun and unforgettable day we had on the day of the Showcase event. Sherri is an award winning cook, and I'm delighted she's joined me in my kitchen.
