My heritage is half French. In addition to croissants (which I am desperately trying to come up with a veganized version) and wine, I love Split Pea Soup. I fondly remember my dad putting on his best puppy-dog-eye face and asked my mom to please make him some Split Pea Soup and Johnny Cake (otherwise known as cornbread).

Of course, my mom would use a ham bone or bacon, which in my recipe I opt for some Hickory Flavored Liquid Smoke.
