Kristina's My Favourite

This week I hosted my first meme. I really enjoyed participating and whether anyone plays along or not, I am happy that I have found a way to entertain myself. :)

Kristina played along and she cracked me up in doing so. Her wise
Wednesday Words of Advice were the following:

Kristina is one of my favourite go-to bloggers. She keeps it sweet and simple and incorporates two of my favourite things: books and food. You want a good book review or referral? Or an idea for what to feed everyone at dinner? Kristina plays part in something called: She passed on one of my now-favourite recipes:

Quick Southern-Style Baked Beans
recipe by Pam Anderson
Serves up to 18
8 slices bacon, halved
1 medium onion, cut into small dice
1/2 medium green pepper, cut into small dice
3 large cans (28 ounces each) pork and beans
3/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup distilled or cider vinegar
2 teaspoons dry mustard or 2 tablespoons Dijon

Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 325 degrees. Fry bacon in large, deep sauté pan skillet until bacon has partially cooked and released about 1/4 cup drippings. Remove bacon from pan and drain on paper towels. Add onions and peppers to drippings in pan and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add beans and remaining ingredients bring to a simmer. (If skillet is not large enough, add beans and heat to a simmer then transfer to a large bowl and stir in remaining ingredients). Pour flavored beans into a greased 13-by 9-inch (or similar size) ovenproof pan. Top with bacon, then bake until beans are bubbly and sauce is the consistency of pancake syrup, about 2 hours. Let stand to thicken slightly and serve.

She's got some great links to some cool book reading challenges and I can always count on her to cheer me up with some fun stuff. She's got the most amazing birth story to share about her delivery of her miracle baby, Ethan as well. So on and take a look at Kristina's Favorites and see why she's one of mine.
