Set it and forget it. How good does that sound in this season of fussy holiday cookies and complicated menu plans.

It sounds pretty darn amazing to me.

Anything that helps save time in the kitchen, or enables me to have one dinner ready and waiting, or have an appetizer or even dessert practically made for me, the happier I am.

It’s possible with the newest and most innovative Crock-Pot® Programmable Slow Cooker with iStir™ Stirring SystemiStir™ does the stirring for you so you don’t have to.

One of my favorite things to make in my Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker are these Bourbon Maple Slow Cooker Baked Beans.

Unlike many baked bean recipes that start out with a pound of bacon fat, these are vegan, but are still packed with incredible depth of flavor.

Bourbon, maple syrup, brown sugar, molasses, BBQ sauce intensify and concentrate over time, and the resulting beans have incredible depth of flavor.

They’re sweet with a bit of heat, robust yet smooth, and extremely satisfying.
