Some people have asked me how I started my weight loss. My first few months in the blog archive explain it all.

Italian Black Beans And Rice

This is a family favorite that I took off a Progresso black bean can. I love to serve it with low-fat sour cream and salsa. Enjoy - and Have a great weekend!

2 T olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 - 15 oz can black beans undrained
1/2 cup cubed cooked ham (I use low fat lunch meat ham)
3/4 t dried Italian seasoning
3 to 5 drops hot pepper sauce
2 cups hot cooked brown rice

Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat until hot. Add onion and garlic; cook 3-5 minutes or until tender. Stir in all remaining ingredients except rice. Simmer, uncovered, 6 to 8 minutes. Serve over rice. 4 (1 cup servings)

Add a spoonful of sourcream on top to make it even better.

I love this recipe.

This looks so tasty. In regards to the peach pie recipe... I wish I had a good one!! I maxxed out my CC and left my first born child there to obtain that pie from Croshaws... I need to find a good recipe before I run out of children.
