Pat Nichols' Baked Beans

Pat Nichols' Baked Beans

Whenever our family gets together, it seems that most people are now either bringing already made goodies purchased from Costco, some wine, or else a really plain item that took hardly anytime to cook. I know it is because time is such a commodity to everyone nowadays. But not all yummy foods take a lot of time to cook.
I always bring my bean casserole to family gatherings. Everyone loves them and I always get asked for the recipe. People also invariably say to me"...I love beans, but they are so time consuming to make..." I always tell them that if they can open a can, they can make my beans. When I give them the recipe, they are so surprised at the ease of this great dish - loved by both men and women.

Hope that you will also enjoy.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
