'Easy beans, the best bean cookbook has a wide variety of bean dishes that are easy to prepare and tasty.' -- Bob Spear, Heartland Reviews, March 2005 *****
Here's a question for you: Aside from the barbecue, what is the most plentiful consumable at a cook-off - beer or beans?
I'm not sure which one it is, but right now let's talk about beans. Almost every book on barbecue includes recipes for beans, but until now I'd not come across a book that focused solely on the beans. Now there is "Easy Beans: Fast and Delicious Bean, Pea and Lentil Recipes" by Trish Ross ($12.95, Big Bean Publishing, 146 pp.), which is as outstanding a collection of beans information as I think anyone will find. Ross offers chapters of recipes on Appetizers, Soups, Salads, Main Dishes and Vegetables and Side Dishes; over 100 in all. Plus she adds plenty of other useful information, such as a nutritional chart, discussion on the different types of beans and preparation tips and techniques. All in all, this is a book you'll want to have on your bookshelf. --Doug Mosley from the National Barbecue News, Douglas, GA

I like the author's directions on how to prepare beans if you haven't soaked them overnight. I ALWAYS forget to put beans out to soak. Now, I have a way around that! I don't like canned foods, so the author's directions on preparing the beans is great. However, it does take some time and might not work for the working woman.
The recipes are quite healthy, especially if you don't use commercially canned products. They are easy to prepare for the most part, and easy to add meat to if someone in the house is a carnivore. Excellent book. I'm glad I purchased it! I buy cookbooks from time to time, but this one is heads up the best. I wish it had a spiral binding, however, for ease in laying out on the counter.
Great book. I can't wait to try all the recipes!

Edit: Since teridene seems to think I'm the author padding her own reviews . . . I'm not. Never met her, am neither a cook nor writer, have zero stake in either the food or publishing industries; did not even get a complimentary copy of the book--bought it on Amazon just like everyone else. I just think that people who complain but don't think to substitute ingredients or, you know, adjust seasonings to tastes are looking for things about which to complain. these are easy fixes, people. If you don't like kidney beans but do like black beans, then use black beans. It won't taste exactly the same (which is the point, right? That you didn't want it to taste like kidney beans) but it will be just fine.
I don't love everything in here, but I've altered the recipes I like less so that I like them more. These are great starting points (no cookbook is going to please everyone in the world anyway). If you're really hidebound about only buying cookbooks that are *unique*, then stop buying cookbooks, period, because no matter what you buy you'll always be able to find other, similar recipes online.
