Sweet Creamy Peas

This simple recipe for Sweet Creamy Peas comes from my mother-in-law. I treasure any recipe that gets my kids to eat a green vegetable. I like to serve this for Shabbat and Jewish holiday meals because it is an easy, pleasing side dish. If you are serving the peas with meat, then remember to use pareve margarine and cream.
