Baked Bean Casserole with Beef and Bacon! Crowd Pleaser!

Delicious Casserole with Beans, Ground Beef, and Bacon! 

baked bean casserole

I am trying to venture out and create new recipes for us to enjoy, and I tried this baked bean casserole recipe earlier this week! I get tired of eating the same thing, it just isn’t something I enjoy! I am trying to add new flavors to our menu and of course use more veggies in our cooking!

This baked bean casserole is heavenly, it has ground beef, bacon and beans, it is very hearty and is great for a side dish or the main course! It is very filling and the fiber from the beans is really nice! Adam loves beans so I try to add them into the menu when I can!

Trisha Yearwood has a recipe very similar, that I kind of took and tweaked to fit our family needs and what we had in the pantry! I get a lot of recipe inspiration from her as she really creates delicious meals. I tend to watch a lot of cooking shows during the day to find inspiration!

So let’s get to the recipe shall we, so you can create this delicious creation and serve it to your loved ones! It is very quick to whip up, and takes a little time to bake but it is so worth it!

Baked Bean Casserole with Beef and Bacon! Crowd Pleaser!


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • 2 cans of pork and beans
  • 1 package of bacon (we used peppered but you can use whatever you prefer)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. While it is warming up cook up your ground beef.
  2. Then prep your veggies into small diced pieces.
  3. Once your ground beef is close to done, toss in your veggies and finish cooking the beef.
  4. In a small bowl, mix your ketchup, bbq sauce, soy sauce and brown sugar together and set aside.
  5. Once the meat is all browned, toss in your sauce mixture and the beans.
  6. Stir well and pour into a cake pan.
  7. Cut your bacon into 4 pieces and spread it over the casserole. Just do one layer of the bacon all over the casserole.
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the bacon is cooked and crispy.

The chunks of bell pepper paired with that peppered bacon and the beans is really amazing! Adam rated this recipe a 8 out of 10, it has all the things he loves! You could use this recipe as a side dish for a pot luck, as the main course (like we did) it is very versatile!

I know we will be using this recipe in our menu rotation for sure in the future!

Sun Joe iON Cordless 3-in-1 Blower/Vacuum/Mulcher

I received the 3-in-1 Blower/Vacuum/Mulcher from Sun Joe as a promotional item. This is not a sponsored review. All opinions are 100% my own. 

Sun Joe 3-in-1

We got this Sun Joe iON Cordless 3-in-1 Blower/Vacuum/Mulcher with Brushless Motor awhile back, and have been putting it to good use! We own over 20 acres of land, and with that comes some good ol yard maintenance. My husband is really big in to having our yard mowed and trimmed up. So having this 3-in-1 Blower/Vacuum/Mulcher has come in handy!

With it being summer he is out weed eating a lot and with that lawn clippings get tossed all over our driveway and sidewalks. Right now, it has been great at being used to blow all the weeds off the drive and sidewalk so we don’t have to worry about it building up. I know once Fall comes it will be great for picking up leaves for mulching! Right now we just don’t have any.

Sun Joe Blower

You can use this for sweeping porches, moving light snow, blowing grass off your drive, and so much more. It is a very versatile piece to add to your lawn needs! It comes with a 40 volt Lithium Ion Battery and powered block to charge it. You can get around 45 minutes of run time between charging the battery. Which is a lot of time to get the job done!


it also offers an air speed of up to 200 mph, which means it blows a ton of air! You can also choose between six speed settings depending on the job you will want done! I am excited to keep using this and my husband as well, and see all the awesome jobs we can find to use it in!

We really like this Sun Joe iON Cordless 3-in-1. It is nice light weight so it doesn’t take a lot to hold it when you are using it, and it does great on getting the job done at hand!

1byone Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor with Easy-to-Read Backlit LCD

I received this blood pressure monitor from 1byone as a promotional item. This is not a sponsored review. All opinions are 100% my own. 


I have been wanting to get an upper arm blood pressure monitor to have at home for awhile now. My husband has high blood pressure, and I think it would be nice to have on hand to check his pressure as well as mine. When I came across the upper arm one from 1byone, I thought it would be a good fit! It offers a backlit LCD display with oversized numbers, so you can see it very clearly! It measure the systolic and diastolic blood pressure along with your pulse in seconds!

Here is what my blood pressure was along with pulse, as you can see it is very easy to read! You are able to store 2 users with this, and it will share up to 60 of their most recent readings! It is great so you can look back and see how your blood pressure has been over a course of time. Plus it will alert the user if hypertension or irregular heartbeat is detected. 

The cuff is very easy to put on, and it can fit any arm size. In the instructions it shows you how to put the cuff on correctly for the most accurate reading. Also with a touch of the button it will start running. It is very easy to use, and truly is not hard to learn. I was extremely impressed with how easy it was to do. I was nervous I might do it wrong, but the instructions are simple to understand so you do it right! 

It also comes with a little carry case to put the arm wrap and device in. So if you want to store it in their for safe keeping it works, and is also great if you travel and want to take it with you!

I highly recommend this to anyone who would like to check their blood pressure and pulse.

Sun Joe Pressure Joe Pressure Washer – Bye Bye Dirt And Grime!

I received this power washer form Sun Joe as a promotional item. This is not a sponsored review. All opinions are 100% my own. 

Sun Joe Pressure Washer

I recently received the Sun Joe Pressure Joe Electric Pressure Washer, if you missed my first post, come watch the unboxing video here! Well, we have finally got to try out the pressure washer and our first use was washing our car! It did a really good job at getting our car nice and clean!

Time to Kiss That Dirt and Dust Goodbye with the Sun Joe Pressure Washer 

Pressure Washer

Since we live in the country we have been needing to wash our car a lot more often! So to have this Sun Joe Pressure washer that we can use at home will be a huge help! It will allow us to wash our car, at home! Now this pressure washer is great for cleaning decks, boats, driveways, and so much more. It isn’t limited to just cleaning a car, you can use it for so many things! It will wash away the dirt and grime, and leave things looking fresh and clean!

Sun Joe

This pressure washer packs a powerful punch with its 1800-Watt/14.5-amp motor. The Pressure Joe SPX3000 electric pressure washer generates up to 2030 PSI of water pressure and 1.76 GPM of water flow for maximum cleaning power. If you are like me, and all these numbers are a little confusing, let me just say it gets the job done! It has a nice powerful stream that allows for a lot of pressure, and can really wipe away the muck!

Depending on the job you are doing, you have the option to use the dual detergent tank system! It allows you to store two different detergents simultaneously! It also offers 5 quick-connect spray tips, so depending on the job, you can use the spray tip to fit your light, medium and heavy duty jobs! They are so simple to attach on and off, which is really nice!

We have used it a few times now, and the nice long hose makes (20 foot) it nice for cleaning. You can move around with ease as you clean and not have to lug the washer around very much! It offers a nice 35 foot power cord, that is GFCI protection, protecting you in case the cord shorts out, it will shut off the pressure washer! That is something that is very important!

Clean Car

We really do like the Sun Joe Pressure Joe, it gets the job done! We will be painting our house here in the Spring so it will help in washing our house before we paint!

Clay is Officially 9 Months Old! Where Has the Time Gone?!

My Baby is Almost A Year Old! 

CLay 9 Months

Man oh man, our little Clay is growing up so quick! I can’t believe today he is 9 months old! The time sometimes feels to go slow and others at warp speed! He has brought us so much joy it isn’t even funny! He loves to laugh and do silly things to make us laugh, I think we will have a fun little guy on our hands!

So, as for his health, he is doing amazing. He was diagnosed with salt wasting congenital adrenal hyperplasia at one week old and we almost lost him. It is a genetic disorder that he was born with, and came as a shock to us. He has to be on medicine for the rest of his life and we have to be very careful if he gets sick. But, with God on our side Clay has been doing amazing. He is thriving, and that is so good to see! His sodium and potassium levels have been in the right range at the last few appointments. We are just keeping a close eye on him and making sure all is well. He doesn’t have to get blood work or see specialist for five months which is amazing!

Family Time

What Has He Been Up To These Days

  • Clay is loving meat, yogurt and cheese. Those are probably the three things he loves the most to eat! 
  • He is saying mommy, daddy, hi, bye, oh, and a few more words.
  • He will wave hi and bye at times when he feels like it! 
  • Loves to play peek-a-boo. 
  • Clay will get behind a chair and try to peek around to see daddy sitting in it, to scare him! It is so cute! 
  • Still working on walking, he stands up on things really well while holding on.

So that is all for now, make sure to stay tuned for the next update!
