    Every New Years day my Aunt made me eat Back eyed Peas and Cornbread. Said it was for good luck.

    No, but my mom used to make this cake made with oranges and orange zest and wrap a quarter in a paper towel or foil and whoever got that slice of cake would have good luck that year. She was Greek. :eek:

    My grandma made the best black-eyed peas. She always used ham hocks. Mine do not taste the same.
