Homemade Baked Beans


A few years ago, we were at ribfest, and my husband ordered ribs that came with a side of baked beans. I didn’t dislike baked beans, but they weren’t on my fav. list either. Until, I tried homemade ones. They were sweet and spicy and awesome. Since ribfest is only once a year, it seemed […]
