What's wonderful about a big pot of baked beans is that you can let it simmer all day in a slow cooker, which keeps the heat out of your kitchen. Start your sweet and savory beans the night before so they're wonderfully tender when your Labor Day guests arrive. Here's an easy recipe for smokey bacon baked beans, or go vegetarian with this version of Boston baked beans.
