I often call these my pizza beans because A) it's accurate, and B) it's a great way to lie to myself so I don't order another late-night large for snacking. This is an Italian-American-inspired take on baked beans, trading Navy beans for cannellini, and swapping molasses and bacon for oregano, sausage, and parmesan.
If you know anything about my early days in NYC, you know that I lived off of canned baked beans simmered with cut up hot-dogs and topped with a handful of crushed pretzels. Fast-forward to my adult life, and I figured it was time to make my favorite food from scratch.
Winter baking is full of spice and warmth, none of those lemony midsummer desserts. Looking for a way to kick that old fruitcake in the bum? Try this cinnamon topped cranberry bread using Arrowhead Mills' Gluten Free All Purpose Baking mix and you'll be nibbling before it's had time to cool.
