My Summer Baked Beans : Recipe

My Summer Baked Beans for A Crowd with SAUSAGE, BEEF & BACON I had a particular recipe in mine, I wanted it to have spicey sausage, vegetables and canned beans. So I started searching for a recipe back in June, I think. I found one with just the right ingredients and went off to the store to chose the beans I would use in the recipe. Of course I had always heard good things about “Bush Brand Beans” and they had just what I was looking for. I didnt want ot use a pork and beans, their to sweet, so I picked 3 types, I decided to really work the flavors and chose Grillin Beans, (not sure if they dont fall through the grill but I) anyway, I used Bourbon and Brown Sugar, Black Bean Fiesta and Texas Ranchero!! Now hows that for not being able to make up your mind!My Summer Baked Beans for A Crowd

Ok so now to the kitchen, here’s the recipe and I will spare you all the details, the recipe does that, but I can tell you they turned out the best baked beans I have ever made, just the right amount of meat, vegetables, and all the right flavors, spiced just right with some kick. Everyone raved about them!! I had a small bowl left for lunch the next day. So there you go, make’um for Labor Day, share them with friends,
you will have plenty and they are so good made ahead!!!

My Summer Baked Beans made with Bush Brand Beans

Makes one 2 1/2 quart dish

1/2 lb. lean ground beef, sautéed and drained
1/4 lb. mild, hot or sweet Italian sausage, sautéed and drained (I used hot sausage to kick it up)
4 strips lean quality bacon cooked crisp, torn into small 1/2″ pieces, I used Kroger thick cut Bacon
1 medium onion, chopped
3 (15 oz.) cans “Bush’s Grillin Baked Beans” I used Bourbon and Brown Sugar, Black Bean Fiesta and Texas Ranchero (I wanted a variety of flavor and I like to make a signature recipe, but you could choose just one kind)
1/2 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp. molasses
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. chili powder
2 minced cloves of garlic
1/4 cup mild or medium salsa (used Herdez)
Red Pepper Flakes to your liking.
DIRECTIONS: In large deep frying pan, sauté ground beef, sausage and onion until meats are no longer pink breaking and the onions transparent. Drain any extra oil. (But dont rinse under water that removes a lot of flavor) Stir in the remaining ingredients, except beans, well mixed.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

For the beans I “do not” remove any juice and fold beans in gently until well combined. Its a good idea to spray a 2 1/2 quart baking dish and pour beans into baking dish and cover.

Place into preheated oven, covered, I baked for 50 minutes to an hour. Stir, leave uncovered, but reduce heat to 325 degrees. Bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and stir again.

Serve Hot. We served with our BBQ ribs and baked corn. Great with Corn, chicken, or to take to family parties. And a side salad such as potato, pasta salad, cole slaw, or fruit salad.

Crock Pot: You could easily adapt this recipe by cooking in a crockpot for about 3 hours.

My Recipe was adapted from Blue Ribbon Baked Beans

The Cupcakery™: Las Vegas Review

Inside The Cupcakery™The Cupcakery™ Review: We were out and about the other day and I found the cutest little business here is n Las Vegas, it is called “The Cupcakery”, they are an exclusive bakery that makes wedding cakes, like those you have seen called crazy cakes and gourmet cupcakes, but why I went in was to see what they offered and mostly because I wanted a cupcake, and not just any ole cupcake, a Carrot Cake cupcake called “Bugsy” that has a cream cheese frosting to die for, “well not really” , but oh my gosh it was so good!!! Nothing like I have made before. Not even my homemade! Carrot Cake Cupcakery Cupcake This is it, this is the one I bought 2, one for me and one for my husband, oh gosh, when we got home, I think my husband was more excited to taste than me, and I can say, they were moist and so good, as I expected it would be. The icing was a creamy cream cheese, so rich with flavor. Yum!!
The Cupcakery Las Vegas, NVBut then they have so many delicious flavors, Caramel Apple, Cherrylicious, Chocolate Freckles, The Julius, yes like Orange Julius, Mound Of Joy,This Little Piggy, Trip to Graceland, well the list goes on and on. And sugar free! The frostings are hand crafted from real butter and cream cheese while the cakes are baked fresh daily right on location at each store. With NO hydrogenated oils or chemical stabilizers, the end result is beyond expectation.

And heres the best part, I emailed them to ask if  I could sample more in exchange for a review. (I was already in the process writing but thought I would see and sure enough, they said, “Come down and pick out a dozen!) Dont you know I was excited to try other flavors, I felt like a kid in a candy store. Thank you Ricardo for getting back to me for this opportunity!!

You can order online, to pickup or delivery and they currently have 2 locations in Las Vegas and recently opened in Dallas Texas. The owner Pamela Jenkins opened in 2006, selling 275,000 cupcakes her first year, earning her the AOL’S Best Cupcake of the year award!!Inside The Cupcakery

Now celebrating 10 years in business, Pamela  has been on Ellen Across America, seen on local TV stations, written about in local Las Vegas newspapers, has been a part of the “Aids For Kids foundation”, raising $100,000. And seen with celebrities here in Las Vegas visiting them backstage to take cupcakes. The Cupcakery

Wedding Cakes from The Cupcakery

They are perfect for birthday parties, thank you gifts, baby showers, wedding receptions, bachelorette parties, bridal showers, school parties, office parties, holiday gifts, hostess gifts, housewarming gifts and much more. While I was there customers just pop some buying just a few while others were buying a dozen. They seem to fly out of the store.

“No matter how bad your day is, it takes more energy to be rude and a jerk than it does to be nice and mellow. We wanted to have a business that would make people smile and happy.” PAMELA JENKINS, owner of the Cupcakery™ Cupcake bakery finds recipe for success in Las Vegas
