Worth Her Weight will be the author’s debut inspirational women’s fiction, but it makes a perfect companion to her recently released, Divine Dining: 365 Devotions to Guide You to Healthier Weight and Abundant Wellness. Both books encompass her passion for diet, fitness, and God’s Word.

You can  find her at http:/ /www.janetkbrown.com on Twitter, @janetkbrowntx , on Facebook @  http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Janet-K-Brown-Author/143915285641707

The recipe below might’ve been one enjoyed by the heroine of Worth Her Weight my inspirational women’s fiction. Lacey faces a food addiction that only God can heal. A good friend brings her a casserole, a salad, and a dessert, hoping it’s something Lacey might eat and stay healthy during a traumatic time in her life.

The reader will find those recipes at the end of the book.

Today, I’m offering Lillian Duncan’s viewers what might’ve been Lacey’s entree for New Year’s Day.

Black-Eyed Pea Casserole

Black-Eyed Pea Mixture:

1 lb. 93% lean ground beef

Onion to taste

Green pepper to taste

2 16 oz. cans black-eyed peas, drained

1 10 oz. can Rotel tomatoes

1 t. salt

1 t. sugar

½ t. pepper

¼ t. garlic powder

Brown ground beef in skillet.

Drain.

Stir in onion & green pepper, cook until tender

Add remaining ingredients.

Bring to a boil then reduce heat & simmer for 20 minutes

Cornbread:

3 / 4 c corn meal

2 heaping T. flour

1 / 2 t. salt

1t. sugar

1 t. baking powder

1/8 t soda

Mix dry ingredients

Add 1 T. canola oil

Put 1 egg in 1 cup measuring cup & then fill the rest of the way with buttermilk

Fold milk/egg mixture into dry ingredients.

Use oil spray for pan before adding mixture.

Cook at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes

Slice into 8 pieces.

Pour one-sixth of black-eyed pea mixture over 1 piece of cornbread.

This gives you 6 servings of black-eyed pea casserole.

Sounds tasty, Janet. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us. Here’s a bit more about her new book, WORTH HER WEIGHT:

How can a woman who gives to everyone but herself accept God’s love and healing when she believes she’s fat, unworthy, and unfixable? Can she be Worth Her Weight?

LACEY CHANDLER helps her mother, her sister, her friend, and then she binges on food and wonders is there really a God?

BETTY CHANDLER hates being handicapped and useless, so she lashes out at the daughter that helps, and the God who doesn’t seem to care.

TOBY WHEELER loves being police chief in Wharton Rock, but when the devil invades the small town, he can’t release control.

Is God enough in Wharton Rock?
