I love to watch my loved-ones and guests enjoy the food that I prepare. It’s fulfilling to just sit back and watch them savor every bite. When I was younger I followed a lot of cooking shows. At an early age, I already know that I will grow up loving food. I travel for food, I cook every day, I search for new recipes, and I experiment. I have a long list of menus I treasure the most and one of them is this Calico Bean Casserole. It’s a breeze to make, it calls for simple ingredients like canned beans that are just sitting in my pantry. It’s so savory, all the amazing flavors just burst inside your mouth, and it is undeniably delicious!
