    I was watching "The Barefoot Contessa" on Food Network this morning and Ina was making 40 Cloves of Garlic Chicken. She recommended using a good dutch oven to make it. If you check their website, the recipe should be posted.

    My mother used to make a 15 bean soup mix at Christmas to give to friends. She would buy bags of dried beans and lentils and peas, and we would mix them together, put the appropriate amount in jars, attach a recipe. You don't have to buy all the dried beans, lentils and peas separately. Most grocery stores sell a one pound bag of the mixed beans that include a flavor packet. All the beans are mixed together for you. It is a lot easy and more convenient than having 15 pounds of assorted dried legumes around. I haven't used the flavor packet, so I don't know how it tastes.

    All the best,

    I just bought the store brand of 15 bean mix. I really wanted navy beans but they were out. Everyone must have been making ham bean soup.
    It turned out awesome I must say.

    Hi "Marycsm,"
    A commercial manufacture, Hurst, markets a 1 pound bag of the 15 bean soup with a flavor packet and calls it Vegetarian 15 Bean Soup. The recipe is easy, find it here: (This product can be found in most supermarkets in the dried bean section.)

    Otherwise, search the internet for Vegetarian 15 (or 13) bean soup for other tasty variations.

    Any recipe suggestions?

    - just checked clipping on mu Kindle - the dish was a Venezuelan dish called "asad negro"
    Garvey - Go to America's Test Kitchen and do a search on "Almost No Knead Bread". You may have to purchase a membership for this recipe but google it and someone has it posted. I have tried forever to make crusty bread. With this recipe you cook the bread in the dutch oven and the steam makes it consistently crusty. You can try it with your favorite bread recipes also. Pre-heat the oven to 500 degrees then put your dutch oven in for 30 minutes with the cover on. After 30 minutes turn the oven down to 425 and put the bread dough in the dutch oven (dough on parchment paper) and put the cover on. After 25 minutes take the cover off and bake until the bread reaches 210 degrees or approx another 20 minutes. I have a LeCruset dutch oven and had to replace the cover handle since it could not be heated past 325 (Handle would possibly explode no kidding....I've seen the new handles can handle up to 475).

    America's Test Kitchen has a recipe for baking a whole chicken in the dutch oven and it was one of the best chicken dishes I have ever eaten. (French Chicken in a Pot).

    like when someone asked about the origin?
