Spring is almost here, and that means: Grilling out!!
Here is a new twist on Baked Beans. If you have an old metal pan, you can grill your baked beans outside on the grill. It adds SOOOO much flavor. Just use an old pan because it will turn black :)

I got this recipe from Paula Deen's show a couple of years ago. It is a bit different, but very good.

4 cans baked beans
16 oz can french fried onions (reserve a few for topping)
1 cup molassess (or syrup if you don't have any)
1 cup bbq sauce
2 Tb mustard
20 oz can crushed pineapple (drained)

Mix all, bake for 1 hour at 350 (or grill covered)
Top with Bacon Bits and the extra onions.



This is a new one! We first had it at Jonna's house. I made it for Wes and also for New Years'. He loves it!!

1 pkg Cream Cheese
1/2 cup butter (real)
1/4 tsp vanilla
2 Tbp brown sugar
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 bag mini chocolate chips

Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla until fluffy. Add powd. sugar and brown sugar, beat until combined. Refrigerate 2 hours, shape into ball, top with pecans (optional). Serve with Graham Cracker sticks. (Kroger has the best graham selection, and two kinds of graham sticks)
