I love beans of all types. But my favorites have to be Baked Beans in a sauce comprised of mollases and Splenda, with onion, yellow mustard, and a good ham hock cooked in it until all of the collagen is dissoved. I love just a great quality hot dog heated with the beans.

Now take those baked beans and replace the Splenda and mollases with Maple Syrup and you have something very special, not necessarily better or worse, but more luxurious and deliscous.

I'm also a sucker for Van Camp's pork & beans with hot dogs.

Polish sausage and keilbassa also work with the beans as well.

Beans soup is right up there on my list of favorites.

Refried beans are so versatile, and can be a vehicle for other flavors. Gotta acknowledge them on this post.

Kidney beans belong in chili, and taco salad. That's just one of the natural laws of the universe.

Chick peas in three bean salad, how can you go wrong with that.

Four bean salad is even better, with green and yellow-wax beans, chik peas, and kidney beans.

And the list could go on and on.

There is a fantastic Brazilian restaurant right down the street, here in W. HOllywood, that makes amazing black beans. They season them so well and pair them up with rice and fried plantains. Of course, the grilled Mahi-Mahi that goes with it is exquisite too.

We make good food, great. TM

Brown in some oil and butter the sausages, with rosemarin and fennel seeds, and add some white wine. Let it dry. Add a can of white tuscan beans, or the brown ones (we call them "borlotti"), after leaving off their water. Squeeze about a third of them with a fork. Add some tomatoe pulp (two-three spoons for 300 gr of sausages). Wet with an half glass of meat broth, and let it cook gently, till broth has finished. Some pepper, if you like.....

This contribution of middie's is sooooooooooo good, if you want a testimonial. Coudn't tell you for sure how many people it feeds, but the three of us eat every bit of it.

A pinch of Epazote can reduce gas problems if added near th end of cooking beans.

One of my summer staples is a bean salad using one can each of any combination of beans (garbanzo, red kidney, cannelini, black, etc.), rinsed & drained, mixed with chopped red onion, chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley, minced garlic, feta cheese, extra-virgin olive oil, & red wine vinegar. I try to always have a bowl of this in the fridge for a quick snack, side, or lunch.

Cassoulet is also our traditional New Year's Day dish, made with white beans, turkey Andouille sausage, chunks of chicken stewed in white wine, & leftovers from the Xmas Day roast goose.

Refried beans accompany nearly every Mexican dish I make, of course, & chili wouldn't be chili without red kidney beans.
