These last few months of the year are always my favorite though. I love the season of giving, so I’m super thrilled to be partnering once again with Challenge Dairy for another generous “Pin a Recipe, Feed a Child” campaign.

Challenge Dairy and UNICEF are once again joining forces to fight and raise awareness of the childhood malnutrition crisis, which results in the unnecessary loss of nearly three million young lives a year.

Starting TODAY through December 31, 2016, every recipe pinned from Challenge Butter’s “2016 Pin a Recipe, Feed a Child” Pinterest Board will result in a meal being donated to UNICEF for a child in need.

It’s really that simple! You can help a child in need by simply saving a recipe from THIS PINTEREST BOARD. Save as many as you can! Challenge has pledged to provide UNICEF up to 75,000 meals! Let’s make it happen this year!

The green beans are cooked until tender in a combination of bacon grease, chicken broth and seasonings. Then they’re quickly drained and set aside, to prepare the browned butter – toasted almonds.

This really is the key to making this dish go from good to AMAZING!

Once the butter is browned and the almonds are toasted, drop the green beans and bacon back in and get them nice and toasted too.
