Joann Delmonico from Utica, N.Y., was looking for an authentic recipe for making Spanish-style rice and beans. She said her granddaughter loves the dish, and she would like to be able to make it for her. Martine Perez from Santa Rosa, Calif., sent in her favorite recipe for rice and beans. She said sometimes she adds some cooked ham or sausage, but most of the time she makes it without adding any meat for a tasty vegetarian meal that everyone, even her kids, enjoys. Perez said she frequently serves the rice and beans inside flour tortillas with shredded cheese, low-fat yogurt or sour cream, and lettuce to make a delicious vegetarian burrito for a simple and satisfying weeknight meal.

Ronald Jasinski of New Hartford, N.Y., was in search of a recipe for a lamb and bean casserole. He said his late uncle used to make the dish, but no one in his extended family has his recipe. Jasinski did not provide me with much detail about his uncle's casserole - only that the whole family loved it - so I decided to track down a recipe for a classic lamb and bean stew for him to try. I came across an article originally published in The New York Times in November 1997 by Florence Fabricant with the headline " Stew: Warming, Comforting And Now, Fashionable.

MC Savage from Baltimore said she is trying to find ways to get more nutrient-packed beans in her diet and was hoping for a recipe for a three-bean salad that was a little bit different from the classic versions that most commonly have a dressing made with vinegar, oil and sugar. Debbie Sullivan, also from Baltimore, shared a recipe for a Mexican-style bean salad that she thought Savage would enjoy. Her recipe includes chicken or turkey but she said it is equally good made without it. What's nice about this dish is that it comes together in minutes and is extremely adaptable.

Ze Mean Bean Cafe, a popular Eastern European-styled, Fells Point restaurant, had its liquor license revoked by the city's liquor board Thursday, the board chairman said. Baltimore City Liquor License Board Chairman Steve Fogleman said Thursday evening that the bar had committed two violations - not cooperating with inspectors and serving alcohol without picking up their 2013 liquor license from the board. A chef at the restaurant did not appear at a hearing in front of the board as required, he said.

Andre Scott sat at a wooden table fingering tattered documents — certificates from drug-treatment and job-training programs, a booklet from his girlfriend's funeral. With two dozen other very poor people, he was waiting to see a counselor at Beans and Bread in Upper Fells Point. Others seeking help stood outside in a cold rain. The organizers of Beans and Bread say that a planned 14,000-square-foot expansion will let them better serve those who come for substance-abuse counseling, health care, life-skills training and a hot meal.

Collecting taxes and counting beans. Those are the chief duties of the state comptroller. Sure, he also gets to monitor the quality of motor fuels and make sure that shot of Smirnoff you order at the corner bar really is 80 proof. But the latter task sounds like more fun than it really is, since it's a bunch of inspectors who go out to Maryland watering holes, not the comptroller himself. So who can blame Peter Franchot for trying to make more of the job that he's trying to wrest away from William Donald Schaefer?

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Proof that the self-indulgent attitude of the 1980s is history was evident at the recent National Food Distributors Association trade show.In the more than 254 displays set up at the Walt Disney World Contemporary Resort, the culinary puritanism theme of the '90s was all wrapped up in bright, healthful and politically correct packages of no-fat salsa, guilt-free chips, convenient whole-grain blends and ever-more exotic combinations of beans for soups and stews.Virtually extinct were the decadently rich fudge ice-cream toppings and liqueur-drenched cakes that flooded stores during the '80s.

For proof that kids love pizza, have a look at Everett Stimler's "Folk Art House. " A 5th grader at Lisbon Elementary School, Stimler made this painting by applying acrylic paint to the lid of a pizza box. And several other students in a new art exhibit likewise made paintings on pizza boxes. These pizza-box-as-canvas paintings amount to just a few slices of the hundreds of pieces of art in various mediums that fill a gallery at the Howard County Arts Council for an exhibit titled "Alternative Processes — Alternative Materials.

The next time I have a recipe that calls for cooking greens until they are wilted, I'm going to use twice as much as i think I need - and even mix up the greens. I used all the kale from my CSA pick-up this week to make this recipe for Sausages with Kale and White Beans, and I could have used twice as much. I should have thrown in the half bag of remaining spinach, too.  Kale, which is some sort of cousin to collard greens, I believe, is a popular CSA veggie, and yet, I can't remember ever actually choosing to cook with it before.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Before Michael Lewis' book "Moneyball" hit the best sellers list and before Brad Pitt brought Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane to the big screen in the Academy Award-nominated film of the same name, the concept of building a small-market club through shrewd acquisitions, farm system strengthening and an obsession with on-base percentage had already been featured north of the border. Arguably, the first incarnation of the Moneyball concept occurred in Montreal in the early 1990s.

WHEN YOU are young, tender and intriguing, almost everybody wants a piece of you. But as you become older, leathery and taken for granted, you need help to stay appealing. That is how it works with life and with green beans. Early in the summer, when the green beans first appeared in my garden, they were fetching. Their skin was so smooth, their centers so soft, their flavor so clean that I succumbed to the temptation to pop a few into my mouth, right off the vine. But as time marched on, the sun bore down and the novelty wore off. Picking the beans, once a labor of love, became a chore, one I often put off. As my interest in the beans waned, that of the bugs' increased.
