Monday, June 6, 2011

Hey Loves, sorry Ive been away! Truly missed talking back and forth with you guys =]
So its ablaze here in chicago. I mean Hot!! And when its hot, who wants to cook. Heating up the oven, even going out to the grill is way too much. So here's the deal, Im gonna make up some fun recipes for you all allowing you to not get too hot in your kitchens, but you'll still have a nice meal =] The first is Smokin' Beans. We've all had baked beans but these are absolutely delish and quick to make. Lets have 15 minutes of stove time and I promise to keep your house at a cool 70 degrees =]

Mmm. Absolutely delicious. My mom isn't a big cooker, but she used to make something along these lines when I was a kid - yours looks better though! ;) Can't wait to try it!

This sounds really good but my husband, the great baked-bean eater in the family, has diabetes. We'll have to cut back on the sugar. But, where there is a will, there is a way!

Jacqui' said...

Hi Sinea! Well, X the brown sugar and add some agave nectar =] I love that stuff =]

Michelle said...

I have an award for you!

What a great idea to use agave nectar- I've never tried that!

This looks delicious!! My daughter was just asking me to make something using French's Fried Onions but I'm not a fan of the traditional Green Bean Casserole they usually top. This would be much more fitting for our family though! Thanks!
