Aunt Ro's Baked Beans
After reading other reviews about quantities, I halved the recipe for hubby and me, as he is not too fond of beans. I had 2 Italian sausages cooked and left over, so chopped those fine and added in place of ground beef. Also fried the onions with 2 cloves garlic. I used pinto, mixed beans and canned pork and beans. I think you could incorporate any type of similar beans (white, navy, red kindney, pinto, garbanzo etc.) I cooked for 6 hours in slow cooker on low. At first I thought it was too sweet, but hubby ate them without any complaint so far, so that's a good sign. They are quite tasty! The portions are a little misleading as we eat them as a side dish, so half of this recipe actually will do us for 4 meals... I've already frozen enough for 2 of us for a meal, as per another reviewer's suggestion. Very simple to make and will try this with the ground beef too... It's such a simple recipe to be creative with.... thanks to Aunt Ro!

Butternut Squash Casserole
After reading other reviews, I reduced the sugar to 1/3c. in the squash and the topping but still way too sweet. I used ritz crackers in the topping. The texture was great but next time I will try without the sugar in the topping. I did add 1/4 tsp ginger and cinammon, but couldn't really taste them through the sugar.

Cream Peas
I used fresh peas, and 1% milk cause that's what I had on hand. I boiled the peas for 5 min. in 2/3c. milk, then stirred in the butter and the other ingredients, substituting the 1% milk for the cream. I reduced sugar to 1 tsp. and added a hint of nutmeg. It thickened right away and was delicious. No need to use the higher fat cream called for in the recipe, unless you want it really rich in calories and fat:)
