With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, it’s that wonderful time of year when we welcome loved ones back home. The kids come back from school. Far away aunts and uncles make their once-per-year cross-country flight. Everyone converges on grandma and grandpa’s house.
You may not see all these faces together again until next year, so why not welcome everyone home with some delicious treats. And, with Randall Beans being the perfect base for tasty treats, why not start here? Beans help make desserts healthier and boost the amount of protein value they carry.
