    I am sure Richard was thinking that his remark was clever, but slamming a recipe is one thing, and insulting the person that submits that recipe is quite another. This sound like a good "old fashioned" type of dish that my mother would have made, and let me assure Richard that my mother loved and cared about her family very much. Richard should try a recipe before he rates it and keep his remarks civil.

    I do not consider myself a “health nut”, but ... creating a baked bean recipe that max’s out your recommended daily dose of Sodium in a serving size of just a couple of ounces? Does this person even care about her family? I could feel my arteries slamming shut from just reading this recipe.
