Kitschy, I know, but this is the recipe that reminds me of being a kid. We had a limited rotation of meals when I was growing up as my mom wasn’t much of a cook and relied heavily on simple recipes she pulled from magazines. Beans ’N Wieners Waikiki was one of those recipes. My sisters and I would always be excited when it was bubbling in the oven. It was a fun meal and a departure from much of what we ate, such as liver and corned beef. This is the kind of meal that harkens back to a different time and it is always a crowd-pleaser, particularly with kids. It is the first dish that comes to mind when I think of beans, in this case, navy beans. This sweet and simple dish will always have a special place in my heart, and I hope my illustration expresses the joy of childhood that it evokes in my memories.
One of Mom's many famous deserts was her individual Baked Alaskas. She usually made them with French Vanilla ice cream (Dad's favorite), but I thought it would be fun to pair the pineapple and coconut with raspberry ice cream instead.
