“When I was growing up, my dad often would make a big pot of beans, usually navy, flavored with ham, and offer us kids bowlfuls. He’d eat them all himself, though. We weren’t eating beans. Are you kidding?

Flash forward a number of decades and, of course, I love having a pot of beans on the stove. Whether dad’s favorite or black beans, cannellini or cranberry, a bowl of beans is a welcome comfort.

A recent hankering sent me searching out a recipe for charro beans, a Mexican dish with more complex flavor than the typical refried beans. I’d had them at restaurants, but never cooked them. They prove simple to make, deriving their smoky flavor from a few ingredients. A version from TV cooking show star and cookbook author Pati Jinich, of ‘Pati’s Mexican Table’ on PBS, was just what I wanted…”

I stopped by the Today Show to make a few of the avocado snacks we’ll be eating in my house for the Super Bowl. With some help from Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford, we ended up with quite a spread: Garlic Shrimp, Fennel and Orange Guacamole; Avocado, Roasted Asparagus and Cherry Tomato Salad; and Salmon topped with Greens, Bacon and Avocado.

I always have so much fun being a guest on The Chew. This time, I made my Bricklayer-Style Tacos with Daphne Oz.

“A bowl of pozole, with its colorful elements of yellow hominy, emerald cilantro flecks and white onion pieces, can look as if it has been dusted with fiesta confetti. And that’s entirely appropriate. The rib-sticking Mexican stew stars at festivities including quinceañeras and New Year’s celebrations.

‘Pozole is a party dish,’ says Pati Jinich, the locally based, Mexico City-born PBS personality and chef at the Mexican Cultural Institute. ‘It’s partially because it takes a long time to make, and it can feed a crowd.’ She and her husband even served it at their wedding…”

“In the convents around Mexico during the colonial era, the nuns became serious cooks, says Pati Jinich, author of ‘Pati’s Mexican Table’ and host of the PBS series of the same name. The church was a major power, and it was in the kitchens of the convents where traditional Spanish recipes started to take in local ingredients; many Mexican classics like mole poblano and chiles en nogada supposedly came from the convents.

Rompope reportedly was invented in the convent of Santa Clara, in Puebla. ‘Puebla is known as the city of sweets,’ Jinich says, and the nuns had a reputation for ‘an incredible sweet tooth. . . . They brought all the Spanish recipes, the flans and the sweets made with almonds . . . and started mixing the Spanish recipes that were heavy on the sugar and milk — which was very uncommon for Mexico — with Mexican ingredients’…”

“Culinary heavies all charged up about energy poverty fanned out across the Capitol Wednesday in a last-ditch effort to illuminate lawmakers about the importance of empowering Africa.

The lobbying blitz was coordinated by ONE, a nonprofit that works to bring change in the global health and social justice arenas. The current campaign is focused on carrying the stalled Electrify Africa Act of 2014 across the legislative finish line before lawmakers put a bow on the swirling cromnibus package and wrap up their official business for the year…

“D.C. is awash in celebrity chefs this week.

On Wednesday, four of them — Andrew Zimmern, Hugh Acheson, Pati Jinich and Nina Compton blanketed Capitol Hill in an effort organized by the ONE Campaign to rally support for Electrify Africa, legislation that aims to give 50 million Africans access to modern energy and add 20,000 megawatts of capacity to the continent.
