  1. Best baked beans ever! I have made this recipe several times
  2. FIVE (5) STARS Y'all!<br/>I used .5cp Gates mild & .5cp Jackstack reg. sauce. (Lil Smokies for that "Beanie Weenie" feel)
  3. Loved this - added some amount of bacon and the pseudo burndt ends (ham steak sauteed in butter and brown sugar). EXCELLENT in crockpot.
  4. Easy to make and nice smokey/sweet flavor. I used a 31 oz can of pork & beans and scaled everything back and it worked fine. I used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce, but would probably use a sauce that's a little less sweet next time. I was using bits and ends bacon so I used about 6 pieces. Served with baked pork chops. Good dinner. Thanks.
  5. Great... Great... Great...I used Ham instead of . If you want it on the spicy side try Famous Daves Spit Fire BBQ sauce ...Everyone always requests em' spicy that's the way I like to make them..


I live in a small rural community just south of Kansas City, MO. I have three sons, one in the Navy in Virginia, one in the Air Force in Montana, and one here in MO. All are single. I live with my DH and one very spoiled (rescued)cat named "Oscar" who loves to watch TV when I put his "Hammy Hamister" tape in. I retired from full time work when we were transferred to southern California for three years. Loved That! Since coming back to Missouri, I work a few hours a week for our oldest son. Otherwise I'm usually home on the zaar website! Where does the time go????? I have hundreds of cookbooks and enjoy reading them all, but I especially enjoy the cookbooks with "pictures" of the finished product! My passions, besides my husband, include collecting cookbooks, collecting Boyds Bears, collecting Peteroboro Baskets, vacationing in Palm Springs, getting on the Zaar site, and making our cat happy! I don't really think much about pet peeves, but I do dislike all the "insert" pages the magazine companies put in their magazines!
