Beef and Bacon Baked Beans

Apparently, all I can think about lately is hearty, beefy comfort food! Last week was my special ingredient meatloaf recipe, and now I have an extra meaty baked beans recipe for you today! Maybe it’s the cooler weather. Maybe it’s my husband’s beef-loving ways starting to rub off on me. Or maybe it’s just because being a carnivore is so utterly delicious! Sorry vegetarians… just look away this week!

Okay… let’s talk baked beans. Do you love ‘em or hate ‘em? If we’re talking about the straight out of a can, plain jane baked beans, you can count me out. I’ll save room on my plate for something else! But if we’re talking about good baked beans with beef and bacon and barbecue sauce and brown sugar and bacon and oh, did I mention bacon? Yeah, I’m in!

This meaty baked beans recipe is easy and inexpensive to make and happens to be the perfect side dish for parties, cookouts, or tailgating. With options for baking in the oven OR using your slow cooker, this recipe is sure to become a family favorite!

Pumpkin Bread

This post is brought to you by Silk // Throw the confetti and blow those party horns… it’s the first pumpkin recipe of the season! I’m one of those people that gets ridiculously giddy this time of year when the heat of summer starts to die down and the cool, cozy feeling of fall begins to sneak in. Get ready for lots of soup and slow cooker recipes plus plenty of pumpkin and caramel apple thrown in… It’s time to start celebrating fall!

Of all the fall flavors, I have to say that pumpkin is probably my favorite. Totally cliché, I know. But the sweet aroma of pumpkin mixed with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves… it gets me every time. So naturally, I’m currently trying to eat just about anything and everything I can put pumpkin into. I have a few fun ideas coming up on the blog soon, but one of my favorite, go-to recipes when I need a pumpkin fix is this sweet, moist, and oh-so-delicious Pumpkin Bread!
