Warm French Lentil Salad with Bacon & HerbsRecipes
One time during fall, I tagged along with my husband on a work trip to Toulouse, France (as one does when one’s spouse has meetings in such nice places).

How To Cook Beans in the Slow CookerRecipes
One of the best ways to guarantee perfectly cooked beans — ones that emerge creamy and tender instead of crunchy or mushy — is cooking them ever so gently over low, steady heat. Hmm … low and steady heat, you say? Sounds to me like a job for the crock pot or slow cooker. For small batches of beans, a pound or less, I think a 3 1/2-quart or smaller slow cooker does the best job.
