Ha! I figured you’d be an Orton devotee, too.

Speaking of New England recipes, Mom used to make Boston baked beans a lot when I was a kid, but I must admit I was never terribly fond of it. Today we had a sweet baked bean — or actually, crockpotted bean — recipe that she whipped up by combining two recipes in her files. It was good. (Rounding out the picnic-ish meal: deviled eggs, dutch cucumbers, watermelon and ice cream.)

I guess clam chowder would have to be my favorite New England dish.
