Barbara Daniel of Cross Lanes, W.Va., was looking for a "good old" recipe for making pickled green beans. She said that her grandmother always made them, but most of her recipes are long gone. Gene Fisher from Baltimore sent in a copy of an article from The Backwoodsman magazine written by Benny Finch that had good basic information on canning and pickling, as well as his recipe for making crisp dill pickled green beans. As the article states, many people are again looking into canning as a method of preserving their garden harvest or farmers' market purchases.

How do I keep green beans bright green? They always turn an olive color on me. The key to cooking green beans - really, to cooking most green vegetables - is to cook them in three stages: blanch them, shock them, saute them. This is my preferred method for dealing with green beans, broccoli, asparagus and sugar snap peas. First, bring a large pot of water to boil. The more water you use, the less it will cool down when you add the vegetables, and the quicker it will come back to a boil.

For more than half a century, my family has been curing our canker sores quickly and easily. Just this week, I bit my lip during sleep, and the spot kept growing. When the sore was 2/3-inch by 1/4 -inch, I decided to cure it. By the next day it had shrunk to a short, thin slit, and soon no sign remained. The cure is to eat a can of green beans. We used to have Gerber's strained green beans, but we can no longer find this product. Whatever the active ingredient is, it works really well and tastes a lot better than sauerkraut juice.

When fresh green beans arrive on the scene, I think of the snapping sessions of my youth, the time spent in the kitchen pinching off the ends of the beans and snapping them in half. As a kid, bean snapping was among my first kitchen jobs. The task was simple; it did not require using a sharp instrument. My mom figured I was up to this challenge. But the task also involved making conversation. A kid who was snapping beans at the kitchen table was trapped in an adult world for a while. Inevitably my mom, my grandmother or a visiting aunt would use the occasion to ask probing questions.

Q: When I go to France, I find tiny slender green beans. This seems to be a different kind of green bean than the ones I find in my neighborhood grocery store. Can the French kind be found here?A: Those tiny green beans you find in France are most likely a bean that is referred to in the U.S. as "haricot vert" (which in French means "green bean"). These delicate, slender beans can be found seasonally in stores that carry specialty produce, but they're usually more expensive than the common green bean because they are imported.

I had my first green beans of the season the other day. They were sweet, tender and smelled of ham.They had spent the better part of an afternoon entwined with a hambone as the beans and the bone slowly boiled on top of the stove.That is my favorite style of string beans, ones that have cooked all afternoon. They are the perfect dish for those summer days when all bodies, not just those of the beans, go limp from the heat. They also are terrific at night when plucked cold from a plate of leftovers during a raid on the refrigerator.

It's become routine for me to respond to casual dinner invitations from good friends by offering to bring a homemade dish to the meal. I am not the only one. Lately I've noticed that more and more guests seem to arrive at informal gatherings with a contribution. It seems to be a trend -- one with a logical explanation. Most of our friends lead hectic lives trying to balance demanding jobs, children's schedules and community commitments with entertaining. Finding time to plan and cook an entire meal can seem like a Herculean task, but when others volunteer to bring part of the night's fare -- a salad, a side dish or a dessert, for example -- then the stress factor is reduced and playing host for a supper or dinner seems much more manageable.

Refreshing and satisfying, this quick dish makes an easy transition from summer into fall - when our great oysters are back in season, yet we're still dealing with the lingering heat. Buying fresh oysters is best. You may ask your fishmonger to shuck the oysters and save the shells for you. (They are great to save and have on hand if you use jarred oysters and need shells for presentation).Serve some hearty bread with the entree salad or bread sticks or crunchy lavosh crackers.For dessert, just indulge in some chocolate ice cream or some frozen yogurt sprinkled with crushed peanut crunch candy bars.

Many of us grew up thinking that green beans came from a can. Those soft and water-logged beans were all we knew until we had our eyes were opened up to the true flavor of string beans (the name covers haricot verts, wax beans and green beans) that were fresh and properly cooked. But the problem is how to cook them differently. While steaming in a pan or boiling in salted water work well, it can get a little monotonous. So this time, try grilling. The dry heat evaporates the water inside the beans and concentrates the flavor while also picking up char from the flame.

Each week a nutritionist from the University of Maryland Medical Center provides a guest post to The Baltimore Sun's health blog Picture of Health (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth), which is reprinted here. This week, Faith Hicks weighs in on family meals. How is it that some kids will eat whatever is put in front of them, while others live on hot dogs and chicken nuggets and have a phobia for vegetables, especially anything green? Many adults should be eating more fruits and vegetables themselves and would like to raise their kids to have healthful eating habits right from the start.

Russell Brown, executive chef at O'Learys Seafood Restaurant in Annapolis, was in Today's Kitchen on Nov. 18 with Al Roker and Natalie Morales. The funniest thing happened. See, Brown is demonstrating how to make swordfish steak au poivre, and Morales notices that among the ingredients on the counter was white wine. So, Morales asks Brown about it, and then Al Roker makes it seem like Morales was interested because she wanted to DRINK the wine!!!!! You can watch this classic TV moment here .

Giving a dinner party immediately after the holidays can be daunting. One reason is that most people, after having cooked a traditional Christmas or New Year's feast, have little energy or creative resources left to draw upon. Then, of course, there's the calorie-counting problem. Guilt-ridden after indulging in rich foods during the season of celebrations, everyone I know swears that they are on a diet the minute the calendar changes to Jan. 2. This year I am faced with such post-holiday entertaining.

Fran Klappenberger from Baltimore was looking for a recipe that she had lost for Dutch Green Beans published by the Del Monte Co. She remembers fondly the wonderful combination of bacon, onions, vinegar, sugar and canned green beans and would love to be able to make it again. Fortunately, Diane Wheatly of Catonsville had a recipe from a very old Del Monte test kitchen recipe book for Pennsylvania Dutch Green Beans, which almost certainly is the one Klappenberger is looking for. Wheatly says that she and her husband enjoy this side dish so much "that sometimes it only makes two servings."
