I first remember coming across Crescent Dragonwagon when I read her Alligator Arrived With Apples: A Potluck Alphabet Feast to my children. Great message! I thought, turning the colorful pages with their healthy array of fresh foods and whimsical animals. Great name! I thought, looking at the author’s byline.
It was a surprise when I realized she wrote cookbooks, too, and this month I finally had a chance to to try one. Bean by Bean: A Cookbook is full of vibrant ideas for the often boring bean. At least I thought so. After a week of beans, my kids, predictably enough, thought she should stick with the children’s books.
