Cowboy Barbecue Baked Beans {Bush's Baked Beans}

These meaty Cowboy Barbecue Baked Beans are perfect for camping, cookouts, potlucks, or served as a hearty dinner meal.  
Do you ever have those recipes that you think will go over great with your family only to find out in the end that they really didn't like it? That has happened a few times in my house, especially with my kids and it can be so disappointing.  Well today's recipe for these delicious Cowboy Barbecue Baked Beans is the total opposite!! 

My husband and I love baked beans, but my kids not so much so I wasn't sure how well this recipe would go over, but I'm happy to report that everyone loved it!!!! My daughter especially because she's already asking me to make it again. This is a huge win for me because it's always hard to find a meal that pleases everyone. 

This delicious, hearty barbecued baked bean dish is filled with ground beef, bacon, three kinds of beans, and is simmered in a sweet and smoky barbecue sauce. The best part about this recipe is that is calls for the convenience of Bush's ready-to-use canned beans which is a huge time saver.  

Bush's Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans are delicious on their own, but they're also perfect for added flavor and seasoning in a variety of barbecue dishes. I prepared this recipe in my Dutch oven, but you can easily adapt this recipe to a slow cooker making it perfect for cookouts, picnics or potlucks.

Summer Fun - No Churn Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Cream

A perfect way to celebrate summertime... No Churn Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Cream and DIY Ice Cream Sundaes!
If there is one treat that everyone loves during summer it's Ice Cream!!! Cold, creamy ice cream is a must have in surviving the dog days of summer. My family spends a lot of time outdoors during summer, so keeping cool is a must.

We love cooking out, grilled desserts, s'mores in our fire pit, and making homemade ice cream. Most times we use our favorite Nostalgic Electric Ice Cream Maker, but I have to say using a no churn recipe is just as delicious and fun.  

Last weekend while the kids and I were grocery shopping at Walmart, we picked up everything we needed to make this easy No Churn Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Cream. Initially we just wanted to make homemade ice cream, but I thought it would be fun to pick up some sundae essentials and make our own ice cream sundaes as well.
