After a whirlwind long weekend of family, non-stop cooking and calorie-packed holiday meals, I feel like it's finally time to kick up my heels, relax and pick a simple, healthy recipe to feed the family. Whenever I'm looking for the path of least resistance in the kitchen, it usually means pulling out my crock pot.
I ate a lot of Baked Beans as a kid, but they were almost exclusively prepared out of a can. Making these fresh, slow cooked, sweet white beans is a real treat that bears practically no resemblance to their canned cousins. And the taste? Whenever I make them my kids couldn't be happier, so after the seeming non-stop parade of rich food during the past week, I think we're all finally ready for something a little bit more healthy as we head towards the New Year!
