Barbeque Green Beans and a Winner!

Happy, happy belated Thanksgiving.  I took a much-needed hiatus from life and blogging so I apologize for being incredibly slow on posting the winner of the cookbook.  But we had such a great, relaxing, family-filled holiday.  And now I sit here listening to Christmas music while we put up the holiday decorations and I am feeling perfectly festive and ready for the season.

And thank you, thank you for all of you who submitted side dishes that I could use for our Thanksgiving feast.  They ALL sounded so amazing and I am excited to try many of them out.  I had such a hard time narrowing down which recipe to try for our Thanksgiving.  So I brought in the help of my husband and he decided that something with corn or green beans sounded good.  It was such a tough choice, but I picked Ann's Green Bean recipe and they were phenomenal!!! Seriously.  You have to add this to your upcoming holiday dinners.

That being said, Ann is my sister and so I felt that it would show too much nepotism to give her the cookbook and she agreed.  So I used to pick a winner for the cookbook.  The winner is Melanie Ann.  Leave me your email, if you would, Melanie and I'll get the cookbook to you.  Thanks again everyone for you submissions!!

And now here is that amazing recipe!  Don't let the title confuse you--there is no BBQ sauce in these beans but would go perfectly at a barbeque or as a side dish to accompany your ham or turkey this holiday season.  The flavors are better than any I've ever had in a green bean dish.  You MUST try these!
