Baked beans go great with so many picnic recipes that I thought I’d share my recipe with you today. So cook these up, pack them in your picnic cooler and have a great time!

INGREDIENTS

1. 2 cups navy beans
2. 1/2 pound bacon (I use Turkey Bacon)
3. 1 onion, finely diced
4. 3 tablespoons molasses
5. 2 teaspoons salt
6. 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
7. 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
8. 1/2 cup ketchup
9. 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
10. 1/4 cup brown sugar (I use Splenda brown sweetener)

DIRECTIONS

Soak the beans overnight in cold water. Simmer the beans in the same water until tender (approximately 1 to 2 hours). Drain and save the liquid to use later. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Arrange the beans in a 2 quart bean pot or casserole dish by placing a portion of the beans in the bottom of dish, and layering them with bacon and onion. In a saucepan, combine the molasses, salt, pepper, dry mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and pour over beans. Pour in just enough of the reserved bean water to cover the beans. Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil. Bake for 3 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until the beans are tender. Remove the lid about halfway through cooking, and add more liquid if necessary to prevent the beans from getting too dry. I usually check it more often because it can get dry quickly.

After a week or so of sharing main course recipes, I think it’s time to get back to dessert for a bit. Here is my recipe for baked pears. These are fantastic whether you make them in your oven or on your grill. Give them a try and let me know what you think.

INGREDIENTS

2 medium ripe bosc pears, peeled and halved
4 teaspoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 teaspoons orange marmalade, or any marmalade of your choice

DIRECTIONS

Cut the pears in half and place them, cut side up, in a shallow one quart baking dish. Place butter in the center of each and drizzle them with lemon juice. Combine the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle the mixture over the pears. Top the pears with marmalade. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes or until they’re soft and warm throughout. This also can be grilled on medium heat for 30 minutes or until the pear is soft and hot. Serve these pears warm and with ice cream if available.

I’d love to hear from you after you try these pears or another one of my recipes. Please feel free to leave a comment below and let me know what you think.
