Re: In search of bean recipes

I put them in the crock pot in the morning and let cook all day.
I am so glad you said that because I was just about to post that as a question too. Every recipe I see says to cook the beans first to soften then put in the crockpot to make chili or baked beans whatever. I never understood why you couldn't cook the beans in the crockpot until they were softened and then add the flavorings. Glad to know I wasn't crazy to think that would work.

I don't know what I do wrong when I cook beans, maybe they boil too hard, but they always seem to be tough and grainy,not like canned beans. I prefer canned beans (less work) but with all these WIC beans I can't bring myself to spend money on something that I already hve.

Keep them coming ladies, especially any crockpot recipes, I have a new baby coming and that would make my life much easier. But I will take whatever your favs are.
