>> "CREATIVE LIVING," UTILIZING TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY WITH THE BEST
OF THE PAST TO BRING YOU INNOVATIVE IDEAS AND UP-TO-DATE
INFORMATION FOR CREATIVE LIFESTYLES IN TODAY'S ACTIVE
WORLD WITH YOUR HOST SHERYL BORDEN.
>> I'M SO GLAD YOU JOINED ME TODAY FOR "CREATIVE LIVING."
WE'RE GOING TO LEARN HOW TO COOK DRIED BEANS, SHOW HOW TO MAKE
BOUTIQUE TEA TOWELS, AND DEMONSTRATE MAKING AN EASY BUT
FABULOUS FRAME. ONE OF MY GUESTS IS JEANE WHARTON, AND SHE'S WITH
THE U.S. DRIED BEAN COUNCIL IN JACKSON, WYOMING. AND JEANE'S
GOING TO TALK ABOUT HOW NUTRITIOUS AND
DELICIOUS BEANS ARE. THEY'RE NOT ONLY VERSATILE, BUT A GOOD
PROTEIN SUBSTITUTE IN CERTAIN DIETS SUCH AS GLUTEN FREE.
ANOTHER GUEST IS LAURA BRAY, AND SHE'S A DESIGNER, AND SHE'S
GOING TO SHOW HOW TO MAKE NO-SEW BOUTIQUE TEA TOWELS USING
AN ADHESIVE FOR THE APPLIQUE TECHNIQUE. THESE CAN BE MADE AT
A FRACTION OF THE COST OF THOSE THAT YOU FIND IN A BOUTIQUE
STORE. LAURA REPRESENTS ILOVETOCREATE.COM, AND SHE
LIVES IN ALISO VIEJO, CALIFORNIA. WE'LL BEGIN THE SHOW
TODAY WITH SHANNON BIELKE, A DESIGNER AND CRAFTER FROM
PAYSON, ARIZONA, AND SHANNON WILL SHOW HOW TO MAKE FABULOUS
FRAMES USING SCRAPBOOKING PAPER AND LOTS OF EMBELLISHMENTS. HER
COMPANY IS SHA & CO. SHANNON, IT'S ALWAYS NICE TO HAVE YOU
HERE AND I FIND OUT WHAT YOU'RE DOING IN YOUR "SPARE TIME."
AND AS A MIXED MEDIA ARTIST, YOU REALLY DO MAKE USE OF EVERY
LITTLE BIT AND PIECE THAT YOU HAVE ON HAND, DON'T YOU?
>> I DO. MAYBE I'M CHEAP OR A SPENDTHRIFT, BUT I FIND MY
FAVORITE THINGS, AND I CAN'T GET RID OF THEM, AND SO I USE THEM
EVENTUALLY FOR SOMETHING, AND PEOPLE MAKE FUN OF ME BECAUSE I
HAVE A BIG STASH WITH LOTS OF DIFFERENT THINGS, BUT I ALWAYS
END UP USING THEM.
>> WELL, AND WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THOSE LITTLE, CHEAP FRAMES
THAT YOU CAN FIND EITHER AT A FLEA MARKET OR SOMETHING LIKE
THAT, OR EVEN GO PAY THE FULL PRICE OF A DOLLAR AT ONE OF THE
DOLLAR STORES, AND TO FRAME SOMETHING, IN THIS CASE YOUR
DAUGHTER AND-- >> MY NEW GRANDBABY.
>> GRANNYBABY, BUT THIS WAS JUST A LITTLE CHEAP FRAME THAT YOU
STARTED WITH.
>> RIGHT. THAT WAS AN INEXPENSIVE FRAME, AND WHAT I
FOUND WAS WHEN I TAKE MY FAVORITE PICTURES, I LIKE TO
MAKE THEM MORE THAN JUST FRAMES, SO I LIKE TO MAKE A SPECIALIZED
FRAME THAT ENDS UP MAKING PERSONALLY, I THINK, MY PICTURE
A PIECE OF ARTWORK.
>> WELL, IT CERTAINLY IS.
>> THIS IS MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER AND HER LITTLE BABY GIRL, FIONA
MAY, AND I TOOK THE INEXPENSIVE FRAME. YOU TAKE A PIECE OF
PAPER. YOU TURN IT OVER. AND IT'S EASIER TO USE THE LIGHTER
WEIGHT PAPER.
>> OH, RIGHT. SOME OF IT'S MORE OF A CARD STOCK.
>> RIGHT. AND YOU CAN USE THAT, BUT YOU HAVE TO FOLD IT FIRST.
BUT THIS YOU WOULD DRAW A LINE IN THE MIDDLE. YOU WOULD LEAVE
THE SAME SIZE BORDER ALL THE WAY AROUND. AND WHAT YOU DO IS THEN
YOU CUT A SMALL BOX OUT OF THE MIDDLE HERE, CUT DIAGONALS, AND
MOD PODGE, MY GO-TO GLUE MEDIUM, YOU JUST FOLD IT UP, GLUE IT
DOWN FROM SIDE TO SIDE FROM THE CENTER. THEN YOU DO THE OUTSIDE,
AND TO MAKE THESE NICE CLEAN CORNERS BECAUSE YOU NEED
NICE CLEAN CORNERS, YOU CUT IT DIAGONALLY ACROSS THE TOP HERE,
AND YOU DO ONE SIDE, AND THEN YOU FOLD IT IN, AND--
>> IT'S NOT A MITERED CORNER, IS IT?
>> NO. I DON'T MITER. I JUST-- THIS IS MITERED HERE JUST TO
FOLD IT UP, BUT HERE IT ISN'T. I JUST CUT THIS OFF, AND THEN FOLD
IT IN HERE, AND THEN THAT FLAP FOLDS OVER THE TOP THERE.
>> AND THAT'S WHAT YOU DID.
THIS IS ACTUALLY-- >> RIGHT, RIGHT. YEAH, THAT'S A
REALLY INEXPENSIVE FRAME. IN FACT, IT WAS BROKEN, AND IT'S
STAYING TOGETHER BECAUSE OF THE PAPER.
>> AND THEN YOU WENT BACK AND ADDED SOME ANTIQUING.
>> RIGHT, AND ORIGINALLY I WAS GONNA USE IT FOR THAT, BUT I
DIDN'T THINK THIS COLORING WENT WITH THAT PICTURE, SO I DIDN'T
USE IT.
>> AND THEN DID YOU MAKE ALL OF THESE EMBELLISHMENTS?
>> THAT WAS A PIECE OF PAPER.
THAT WAS ONE OF THOSE PAPERS THAT I BOUGHT 'CAUSE IT WAS
BEAUTIFUL AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS GONNA DO WITH IT. IN MY
STASH THAT EVERYBODY LAUGHS AT, AND I FUSSY CUT ALL THE PIECES
OUT. I FUSSY CUT THESE PIECES.
THEN I BACKED THIS SET WITH THOSE LITTLE FOAM SQUARES THAT
ARE ABOUT AN 1/8 OF AN INCH.
AND THEN ADDED A FEW PRETTY LITTLE EMBELLISHMENT, AND I
ALWAYS LOVED THE METAL PIECES, SO I PUT A LITTLE BIT OF A METAL
PIECE, AND THAT WAS IN MY STASH.
>> AND HAVING THAT 3-DIMENSIONAL ADDITION TO IT...
>> RIGHT.
>> TO A FRAME REALLY DOES CHANGE THE LOOKS OF IT COMPLETELY.
>> AND THEN I THINK ONE LAST THING I MIGHT ADD IS A LITTLE
BIT OF A SHEER SAGE GREEN RIBBON ON THERE, BUT THEN WHEN YOU HANG
THAT ON THE WALL, IT LOOKS MORE LIKE A PIECE OF ART AND NOT JUST
A PICTURE.
>> WELL, AND WHAT A GREAT WAY TO, YOU KNOW, WE ALWAYS CHANGE
OUT OUR KID'S SCHOOL PICTURES, YOU GO EACH GRADE, THEY CHANGE
AND HOW THEY LOOK AND MAYBE THE COLOR THEY'RE WEARING OR
WHATEVER. THIS WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA WITH JUST SOME INEXPENSIVE
SCRAPBOOK PAPER.
>> RIGHT. AND THEN YOU CAN TAKE THE PAPER AND FUSSY CUT. YOU
TAKE THE PAPER, LOOP IT, AND THEN FUSSY CUT THE LITTLE PIECES
OUT-- >> THE BIRDS, AND THE FLOWERS.
>> AND THERE ARE EMBELLISHMENTS THAT YOU PUT ON YOUR FRAME.
YOU CAN THEN INK THEM AND EMBELLISH THEM OR JUST
EMBOSS THEM. YOU CAN DO A LOT WITH JUST CHANGING THEM OUT JUST
A LITTLE TO MAKE EACH PIECE LOOK UNIQUE BUT ALL THE PIECES GO
TOGETHER TO COMPLIMENT. THAT WAS WHAT I WAS TRYING TO DO WITH THE
PICTURE OF THE BEAUTIFUL BABY.
>> OF COURSE.
>> AND MY DAUGHTER, OF COURSE.
>> YES, AND THE DAUGHTER.
WELL, AND SO MANY OF THE SCRAPBOOK PAPERS ARE TWO-SIDED,
SO IT EVEN GIVES YOU--YOU COULD LET THIS BE THE FRAME,
AND THEN-- >> AND THEN YOU HAVE ENOUGH ROOM
TO FUSSY CUT THE LITTLE PIECES.
>> GREAT IDEA. WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH. I APPRECIATE YOU
SHOWING US HOW EASY IT IS TO MAKE A FRAME.
>> IT IS. IT'S A VERY SIMPLE CONCEPT THAT I HAVE DONE, GONNA
BE TEACHING IT IN MY SCRAPBOOK STORE BECAUSE IT'S SUCH A SIMPLE
CONCEPT. PEOPLE ARE GOING, "WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT?"
FIRST THING I'VE EVER THOUGHT OF THAT SOMEBODY ELSE SAID, "WHY
DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT?"
>> WELL, GOOD LUCK. I THINK IT WILL GO OVER WELL. AND
CONGRATULATIONS ON THE BABY.
>> OH, THANK YOU.
>> LAURA, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE. WHEN YOU COME, YOU
ALWAYS HAVE SUCH NEW, CREATIVE IDEAS FOR US, AND THAT'S WHAT I
LIKE. BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT WHEN I READ THE PAPERWORK YOU SENT AND
IT SAID WE'RE GONNA MAKE TEA TOWELS, MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS,
"WHY?" WHY WOULD WE WANT TO GO TO THE TROUBLE TO MAKE TEA
TOWELS?
>> WELL, THESE ARE REALLY UNIQUE TEA TOWELS AND THEY'RE REALLY
BEAUTIFUL, AND I'VE SEEN THESE IN BOUTIQUE STORES FOR $15, $17,
AND I WANTED TO CREATE SOMETHING AS BEAUTIFUL FOR A LOT LESS
MONEY.
>> A LOT LESS.
>> THEY MAKE GREAT GIFTS, TOO, YOU KNOW. A COUPLE OF TEA TOWELS
AND SOME BEAUTIFUL-SMELLING DISH SOAP AND IT'S GREAT FOR A LITTLE
HOUSEWARMING GIFT.
>> WELL, IT WOULD BE.
>> SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
>> AND THIS IS THE ONE THAT YOU'RE GOING TO SHOW US HOW TO
DO.
>> YEAH, I'LL SHOW YOU BOTH OF THEM. AND THE GREAT THING ABOUT
THESE IS THEY'RE BOTH NO-SEW.
>> OH.
>> SO FOR MY CRAFTY FRIENDS WHO WISH THEY COULD SEW, WE'RE GONNA
GET TO DO FABRIC WITHOUT ACTUALLY SEWING.
>> OK, AND THIS ONE IS WASHABLE, AND YOU SAID THIS ONE IS THE ONE
WE SAVE FOR COMPANY AND TELL THE KIDS AND HUSBANDS NOT TO USE
BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO DRY CLEAN IT. OK.
>> RIGHT, AND YOU KNOW, MY HUSBAND LOVES IT WHEN I SAY,
"DON'T USE THAT TOWEL! IT'S JUST DECORATION." BUT HE'S USED TO
IT.
>> HE'S USED TO IT. OK. NOW, WE DO START WITH AN INEXPENSIVE
TOWEL, TEAL TOWEL.
>> RIGHT. I JUST BOUGHT THESE AT A DISCOUNT STORE, AND THEN I
TOOK SOME EVEN SCRAP FABRIC THAT HAD A CUTE MOTIF ON IT, AND
THEN I TAKE SOME OF I LOVE TO CREATE FABRIC FUSION PEEL &
STICK.
>> PEEL & STICK. AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IT IS.
>> IT IS EXACTLY THAT, AND YOU JUST PEEL IT OFF.
>> UH-HUH. NO-SEW, PERMANENT, WASHABLE.
>> AND YOU PUT YOUR FABRIC ONTO THE STICKY SIDE OF THE TAPE.
AND I WILL TELL YOU FROM TRIAL AND ERROR THAT IT DOES GIVE YOU
A LITTLE WIGGLE ROOM. BEFORE YOU REALLY START MASHING IT DOWN,
MAKE SURE THAT YOU'RE ON THE TAPE.
>> OR DON'T HAVE A WRINKLE OR SOMETHING.
>> RIGHT. BUT IT GIVES YOU A LITTLE BIT. SO I PEELED IT OFF,
ATTACH THE FABRIC, AND THEN I'M JUST GONNA CUT THE APPLIQUE.
>> AND YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO FINISH THE EDGES, I NOTICED, IF
YOU DON'T WANT TO.
>> NO, YOU DON'T. IT'S LIKE, YOU KNOW, AN IRON-ON TYPE YOU
USUALLY DON'T HAVE TO APPLIQUE-- FINISH THE EDGES FOR THE
APPLIQUE. THE GREAT THING ABOUT THIS IS NOT ONLY DO YOU NOT NEED
A SEWING MACHINE, YOU ALSO DO NOT NEED AN IRON. THIS IS
ALL...SO YOU CAN SEE HOW EASY THAT WAS FOR ME TO CUT AS WELL.
AND THEN ONCE YOU HAVE IT CUT OUT...
>> SO IT'S A DOUBLE STICK BASICALLY.
>> IT'S A DOUBLE STICK.
>> UH-HUH. GOT TO GET YOUR FINGERNAIL UNDER THERE TO GET IT
STARTED.
>> YOU DO. TRY TO FIND A SPOT.
THAT'S-- >> I GUESS THAT MEANS IT STUCK
WELL, DIDN'T IT?
>> THERE WE GO.
>> UH-HUH.
>> SEE, YOU CAN SEE HOW IT'S GOTTEN SHINY ON THE BACK AND
TACKY.
>> VERY STICKY. MM-HMM.
NOW, ONCE WE LAY IT DOWN, DO WE HAVE ANY WIGGLE ROOM OR HAD WE
BETTER-- >> YOU HAVE A LITTLE BIT AGAIN.
DON'T PUSH TOO HARD. SEE, I CAN LAY IT LIKE THAT AND PICK IT UP.
>> OK.
>> THAT'S ABOUT WHERE I'D LIKE IT.
>> NOW, IF YOU WANTED THE EDGE FINISHED, I SUPPOSE YOU COULD
ZIGZAG AROUND THE EDGE BEFORE YOU PUT IT DOWN MAYBE?
>> WELL, AFTER YOU PUT IT DOWN.
>> IF YOU PUT IT DOWN AND THEN DO IT. OK.
>> ...AFTER YOU PUT IT DOWN, IT MIGHT--I MEAN, IT'S REALLY--
IT'S GONNA STAY. AND BECAUSE I PUT IT DOWN AND THEN CUT IT
OUT, THE PEEL-AND-STICK PRODUCT IS ALL THE WAY TO THE EDGE,
AND THAT'LL KEEP IT FROM FRAYING.
>> MM-HMM. AND THEN WE HAVE TO FINISH THE EDGES. THAT'S WHAT
MAKES THEM ALL REALLY EXPENSIVE IS THE EMBELLISHMENT.
>> RIGHT. SO I HAVE SOME RIBBON THAT I WANT TO APPLY, AND I USED
THE I LOVE TO CREATE PEEL & STICK TAPE.
>> UH-HUH. NOW, IF WE PERHAPS AT OUR STORE, WE COULDN'T FIND IT
OR THEY WERE OUT, COULD WE USE THE STRIPS AND JUST CUT 'EM?
>> YOU COULD. OFF STITCH.
>> UH-HUH. OFF OF ONE OF THESE, COULD WE JUST CUT STRIPS?
>> YEAH, YOU DEFINITELY COULD DO THAT.
>> IT'S THE SAME BASICALLY, THE SAME PRODUCT.
>> THE GREAT THING ABOUT THIS TAPE IS IF YOU'RE SHORT LIKE ME,
YOU CAN USE IT TO HEM YOUR PANTS, TOO...
>> GOOD IDEA.
>> INSTEAD OF STAPLING.
HA HA!
NOT THAT I EVER DID THAT OR ANYTHING.
>> RIGHT. AND ANOTHER THING YOU MENTIONED TO ME EARLIER, AND I
REMEMBER SEWING ON BOY SCOUT PATCHES ON VESTS. THOSE THINGS
ARE A MURDER TO SEW ON, AND YOU SAID YOU DO THIS FOR YOU KIDS.
>> I DO. MY DAUGHTER'S A DAISY, AND I USE IT FOR HER PATCHES.
I USE THE SHEETS, AND YOU JUST PEEL IT OFF, PUT THE PATCH ON,
CUT AROUND IT.
>> I WISH I'D KNOW ABOUT THAT THEN.
>> AND BECAUSE THESE PRODUCTS ARE WASHABLE, IT'S GOOD FOR THE
UNIFORM.
>> SURE.
>> THOSE ARE GONNA GET...
>> YES, THEY DO.
>> AND ALL KINDS OF PROJECTS.
>> SO YOU DID THE SAME THING.
YOU JUST PUT IT DOWN.
>> I JUST PUT IT DOWN. WHEN YOU PEEL IT OFF THE ROLL, IT'S
ALREADY STICKY ON ONE SIDE. YOU PUT THAT DOWN...WHERE YOU WOULD
LIKE IT. AND THEN AGAIN YOU CAN SEE THERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF A
SHINE WHERE IT BE STICKY PART IS AND I'M TERRIBLE ABOUT MEASURING
OR ANYTHING. I DO THIS ALL ON THE FLY LIKE THIS. I REALLY DO.
>> WELL, LOOKS LIKE IT'S GONNA WORK.
AND YOU COULD DO THE WHOLE LENGTH, I SUPPOSE, IF YOU WANTED
TO AS MOST TEA TOWELS ARE JUST DECORATED ON THE FRONT.
>> RIGHT. I THINK I DID IT THE WHOLE LENGTH ON THIS ONE.
>> OH, DID YOU? YEAH, I CAN SEE.
UH-HUH.
>> SO THAT, I MEAN, THAT TOOK 5 MINUTES, AND ALMOST NO MONEY.
>> AND MOST OF US HAVE FABRIC LIKE THAT THAT HAS
CUTE DESIGNS ON IT BUT IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO DO
ANYTHING WITH.
>> RIGHT.
>> OK, SO WE HAVE THAT ONE DONE.
NOW THIS ONE, SO THAT WE COULD SHOW PEOPLE UP FRONT, THESE ARE
TWO SEPARATE THINGS. THIS IS THE APPLIQUE THAT YOU CUT OUT.
>> I CAN SHOW YOU ON HERE THE DIFFERENT PIECES. I BOUGHT A
KIND OF WILD PRINT.
>> I LIKE THAT.
>> AGAIN, DISCOUNT STORE. YOU CAN ALSO USE OLD DISH TOWELS AND
COVER UP STAINS...
>> THAT'S A GOOD IDEA.
>> WITH THE APPLIQUES.
MAYBE YOU'LL FIND SOMETHING AT THE FLEA MARKET. BUT IT'S
STAINED OR HAS A HOLE, THIS WOULD BE A GOOD PROJECT.
>> IT WOULD BE.
>> AND AGAIN, I HAD SOME CUTE JAPANESE FABRIC THAT HAD A WHOLE
BUNCH OF BUILDINGS ON IT, SO I CUT OUT ONE FOR THE APPLIQUE ON
THIS PROJECT.
>> HOW CUTE. UH-HUH.
>> NOW, I'M GONNA USE THE FABRIC FUSION.
>> AND IT COMES IN A BOTTLE. YOU COULD EITHER SQUIRT IT OUT, OR
YOU'RE USING A LITTLE SPONGE BRUSH.
>> I'M USING A SPONGE. WHEN YOU'RE USING A THIN OR FABRIC
LIKE THIS ONE, YOU WANT TO LIGHTLY, YOU KNOW, DO A LIGHT
BRUSHING.
>> OH, UH-HUH.
>> OTHERWISE, IT'LL KIND OF GOB UP UNDERNEATH THE FABRIC AND
WON'T LOOK AS SMOOTH AND BEAUTIFUL. AND YOU WOULD WANT TO
DO IT ALL THE WAY TO THE EDGE, SO PUT IT DOWN ON A PROTECTED
SURFACE.
>> MM-HMM.
>> I'M JUST GONNA QUICKLY DO IT.
AND PUT IT DOWN ON YOUR TOWEL.
SMOOTH IT UP.
>> MM-HMM.
>> AGAIN, THIS IS DRY CLEAN SO YOU'RE GONNA LET IT DRY.
>> NOW, WHAT MAKES THIS ONE REQUIRING DRY CLEANING?
>> IT'S JUST THE PRODUCT.
>> IT'S THE--OK.
>> THE CHEMICAL MAKEUP OF THAT PRODUCT.
>> OK.
>> THEY ALSO MAKE THE SAME ADHESIVE IN A PEN.
>> FABRIC. I SEE. UH-HUH.
>> SO IF YOU HAVE LITTLE, TINY THINGS OR IN THIS CASE, I'M
GONNA DO, AGAIN, A LITTLE END...
>> AND THAT'S YOUR TRIM. HEY, AND ANOTHER GOOD WAY BECAUSE WE
ALL SAVE EVERY LITTLE INCH OF EVERYTHING...
>> MM-HMM.
>> SO IT'S A GOOD WAY TO USE SOME OF THAT.
>> YOU COULD EVEN DO A TRIM, LIKE, A WHOLE TOWEL WITH A BUNCH
OF DIFFERENT TRIMS AND SKIP THE APPLIQUE PART AND GET THE SAME.
DO MY FAMOUS COME IN LATER AFTER.
>> HA HA!
CHANGE OF MIND.
>> HEY, WHEN YOU'RE THE MOM OF SMALL CHILDREN, YOU DON'T HAVE
TIME TO GET RULERS OUT, RIGHT?
AND JUST MAKE SURE IT'S PUSHED DOWN.
>> THAT NEEDS TO LET DRY...
>> RIGHT.
>> FOR A WHILE. MM-HMM. HOW CUTE. AND WHAT I LIKE IS IF YOU
WERE MAKING A PAIR OF THESE, THE TWO APPLIQUE PIECES ARE
DIFFERENT SIZES AND YET THEY COORDINATE.
>> MM-HMM.
>> SO WHAT A NICE SET THIS WOULD BE TO GIVE SOMEONE, LIKE YOU
SAY, MAYBE WITH SOME FRAGRANT SOAP OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
>> WELL, THIS IS A LITTLE BAKERY, I'D MAYBE PUT A
FRENCH LOAF IN A TOTE BAG WITH IT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
>> GREAT IDEA. WELL, THANKS FOR SHOWING US THE NEW PRODUCTS AND
SOME DIFFERENT WAYS WE CAN USE SOME OF OUR OWN SCRAPS AND SAVE
ALL THAT MONEY WE MIGHT SPEND ON THE TOWELS. THANK YOU.
>> THANKS FOR HAVING ME.
>> JEANE, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING WITH US. I'M ANXIOUS TO
LEARN ABOUT RECIPES THAT FEATURE BEANS BECAUSE WHEN I GREW UP, WE
ATE A LOT OF PINTO BEANS, BUT THEY WERE EITHER THE MAIN DISH
BECAUSE WE DIDN'T HAVE A MEAT AND THEY'RE SUCH A GOOD SOURCE
OF PROTEIN, BUT I HADN'T THOUGHT ABOUT PUTTING THEM IN SO MANY
OTHER RECIPES, AND WE'RE GOING TO COVER THAT.
>> I THINK YOU AND I HAD SIMILAR GROWING UP YEARS BECAUSE I KNEW
BEANS AS PINTO BEANS IN A POT WHICH MOTHER WOULD PUT
A HAM HOCK IN, AND THAT WAS BEANS. BUT I'M
FINDING THAT BEANS ARE NUTRITIOUS AND THEY'RE VERY
GOOD, BUT THEY'RE ALSO VERY VERSATILE, AND SOME OF THE
THINGS THAT YOU'LL SEE HERE ON THE TABLE THAT WE'VE DONE WITH
BEANS, VERY ELEGANT DIP, AN OLIVE TAPENADE IN OUR LITTLE
RECIPE BROCHURE AND ON THE WEBSITE, AND IT'S MADE WITH 3
KINDS OF OLIVES AND TWO KINDS OF BEANS. IT TURNS OUT BEAUTIFULLY
AND IT'S WONDERFUL DIPPING YOUR GARLIC CROSTINI INTO IT OR
DIPPING VEGGIES INTO IT.
>> AND WHAT KIND OF BEANS?
>> IN THIS PARTICULAR ONE-- >> THEY'RE USED INTERCHANGEABLY
I UNDERSTAND.
>> YEAH, THEY CAN BE. IN THIS PARTICULAR ONE, WE'VE GOT DARK
RED KIDNEYS AND NAVY BEANS, WHICH IS THE LITTLE TINY WHITE
BEAN. AND THAT WORKS REALLY WELL IN THAT--
>> I KIND OF LIKE THE COLOR.
>> IT ADDS COLOR AND A WONDERFUL TEXTURE, THERE'S A WONDERFUL
MOUTH FEEL TO THAT PARTICULAR DIP. AND THEN ANOTHER WAY THAT
WE'VE USED MASHED-UP BEANS, THIS TIME WE'VE USED MASHED-UP GREAT
NORTHERN BEANS, WHICH ARE THE LITTLE WHITE ONES, IN THE
MUFFINS, AND THAT-- >> OH, MUFFINS.
>> DIETICIANS CALL THIS CLANDESTINE NUTRITION.
>> WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
>> WHAT YOU'RE DOING, YOU'RE SNEAKING IN SOMETHING NUTRITIOUS
TO SOMEBODY THAT MAYBE THINKS THEY DON'T LIKE BEANS OR THEY
DON'T LIKE VEGETABLES.
YOU MASH 'EM UP AND PUT 'EM IN THESE BANANA NUT MUFFINS, AND
THEY'RE WONDERFUL, BUT THEY'RE ALSO HEALTHY.
>> AND I THINK IT'S PROBABLY BECAUSE IT ALSO KEEPS THEM
MOIST.
>> YES, IT ADDS A LOT TO THE TEXTURE.
>> AND IN COOKING WITH BEANS, IT'S GREAT. IF YOU'RE GOING TO
COOK WITH THEM, WHY NOT JUST MAKE A HUGE BATCH? BECAUSE THEY
FREEZE SO WELL.
>> EXACTLY. YOU CAN FREEZE THEM IN THE LITTLE CONTAINERS OR IN
LITTLE ZIPLOC AND USE THEM-- A LOT OF TIMES THERE'S JUST TWO
OF US NOW. WE'RE AT EMPTY NEST.
AND I FREEZE, OH, JUST ENOUGH FOR A SERVING FOR EACH OF US.
AND THAT'S A WONDERFUL WAY TO TAKE THAT BIG POT OF BEANS AND
MAKE IT GO FURTHER. HAVE THEM AVAILABLE FOR YOUR SOUPS AND FOR
YOUR SALADS AND FOR RECIPES LIKE THIS.
>> AND BEANS ARE SORT OF ODD IN THAT THEY FALL INTO TWO
DIFFERENT CATEGORIES ON THE WHAT WE USED TO CALL THE FOOD PYRAMID
OR MY PLATE NOW.
>> IN 2010 THE DIETARY GUIDELINES FOR AMERICANS WERE
REWRITTEN. THEY'RE WRITTEN ABOUT EVERY 5 YEARS, AND IN THIS
PARTICULAR EDITION, BEANS WERE NOTED AS THE FOOD TO INCREASE.
WE NEED TO EAT MORE BEANS. BUT YOU'RE RIGHT, THEY WERE IN TWO
PLACES IN THAT BIG PLATE, IN THE VEGETABLE GROUP AND ALSO IN THE
PROTEIN FOODS GROUP. AND I THINK WE'VE DONE SUCH A GOOD JOB
FOCUSING ON HOW BEANS ARE GOOD PROTEIN, YET WE FORGET THEY'RE A
WONDERFUL SIDE DISH. AND MANY OF THE MEMBERS OF THE U.S. DRIED
BEAN COUNCIL THAT ARE PACKAGERS AND CANNERS HAVE COME UP WITH
SOME GREAT IDEAS FOR A SIDE DISH KIND OF BEANS.
>> UH-HUH, WELL, IN TALKING ABOUT THE HEALTH, WHICH YOU
MENTIONED EARLIER, THEY CONTAIN LOTS OF GOOD VITAMINS AND
MINERALS THAT WE NEED, BUT THERE'S BEEN SPECIAL STUDIES
RECENTLY ABOUT HOW GOOD THEY ARE IF YOU TEND TO HAVE COLON CANCER
OR, WELL, EVEN TO PREVENT, HELP PREVENT LOTS OF KINDS OF
CANCERS, BUT THEY KEEP THOSE POLYPS FROM GROWING IN THE
COLON, AND THAT'S SO IMPORTANT.
>> I'M KIND OF AMUSED THAT MOVIE STARS THAT TOUT THIS YOGURT WITH
THE FIBER ADDED, 'CAUSE WE HERE HAVE THIS WONDERFUL PRODUCT THAT
HAS FIBER IN IT, AND SINCE STUDIES HAVE BEEN DONE RECENTLY,
ONE IN PARTICULAR TWO YEARS AGO IN BRAZIL THAT SAID THE FIBER,
PEOPLE WHO ATE A LOT OF FIBER FOUGHT THE COLON POLYPS MORE
AGGRESSIVELY AND DIDN'T HAVE THEM IN A BIG PERCENTAGE,
AND ALSO A DIET THAT'S REALLY POPULAR
RIGHT NOW IS THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET, AND IT FOCUSES ON FISH AND
BEANS AND VEGETABLES, FRUIT.
>> UH-HUH.
>> I LOVE MICHAEL POLLAN, THE AUTHOR, WHO SAYS THAT IF YOUR
GRANDMOTHER DIDN'T RECOGNIZE IT AS FOOD, YOU PROBABLY SHOULDN'T
EAT IT.
>> HA HA!
>> AND HE'S REALLY BIG ABOUT PLANT-BASED DIET, SO THERE'S
ANOTHER GREAT BOOK BY SHERI PALMER, TALKING ABOUT THE
PLANT-POWERED DIET, AND WE BELIEVE THAT, THAT, YOU KNOW,
THESE ARE PRODUCTS OF THE EARTH AND HOW HEALTHY THAT CAN BE FOR
YOU. AND IT DOES HAVE THE FIBER AND THE MANGANESE AND THE
POTASSIUM AND MAGNESIUM AND OTHER VITAMINS AND MINERALS IN A
SERVING OF BEANS.
>> AND THE VEGANS, VEGETARIANS, HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN, I SUPPOSE,
THAT BEANS ARE A GREAT ITEM TO INCLUDE IN A VEGAN DIET.
>> ABSOLUTELY.
>> WE SEE MORE GLUTEN-FREE DIETS. THAT SEEMS TO BE THE RAGE
RIGHT NOW.
>> YEAH. THERE IS A LOT MORE GLUTEN SENSITIVITY, AND WE'RE
SEEING--A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE USING BEAN FLOUR AND PEA FLOUR
AND RICE FLOUR TO MAKE THEIR BAKED GOODS OR TO MAKE THEIR
BREAD, AND SO BEANS ARE BEING-- MORE AND MORE RESEARCH AND MORE
AND MORE DEVELOPMENT IS BEING DONE ON BEAN FLOUR AND PEA FLOUR
TO--CHIPS AND THINGS LIKE THAT THAT ARE BEING MADE OUT OF THEM,
AND IT'S BECOMING MORE AND MORE POPULAR BECAUSE THEY ARE A
HEALTHY CHOICE.
>> MM-HMM. WELL, AND LIKE I SAY, GROWING UP, I HAD THE ONE KIND
OF BEAN, AND YOU SAID THAT PROBABLY PINTO BEANS MIGHT BE
THE MOST PREVALENT, BUT ALSO ABOUT 70% OF THE BEANS THAT ARE
GROWN IN THE U.S. ARE EATEN HERE.
>> YES. WE ALSO WORK WITH USDA PROGRAMS THAT HELP US
EXPORT BEANS TO OTHER COUNTRIES.
AND IN PARTICULAR WE'VE HAD SUCCESS THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS
IN TURKEY. THEY LOVE AMERICAN PINTO BEANS. AND THAT WAS A
PROGRAM THAT WE DID, HELPING THE CANNERS, SHOW THEM THAT PINTO
BEANS FROM THE U.S. COULD BE USED EFFECTIVELY IN THEIR
CANNING APPLICATIONS, SO WE'RE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT WORKING
WITH THE USDA's FOREIGN AG SERVICE
TO DEVELOP PROGRAMS LIKE THAT AND HELP PEOPLE EAT THE HEALTHY,
NUTRITIOUS BEAN.
>> AND PART OF YOUR JOB WITH THE U.S. DRIED BEAN COUNCIL IS
EDUCATION BECAUSE WE HAVE TO ADMIT, A LOT OF PEOPLE,
PARTICULARLY IN THIS YOUNGER GENERATION, MAYBE HAVE HEARD SO
MANY STORIES ABOUT ACCIDENTS HAPPENING WHEN THEIR MOTHER OR
GRANDMOTHER COOKED BEANS IN THE PRESSURE COOKER, FOR INSTANCE,
KIND OF THE "I LOVE LUCY" TYPE ACCIDENT, BUT WHY DON'T YOU GO
THROUGH THE SOAKING AND THE COOKING. IT REALLY ISN'T NEARLY
THAT COMPLICATED.
>> WE'RE NOT DEALING WITH ROCKET SCIENCE. AND IT SEEMS DAUNTING
WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS LITTLE PACKAGE OF BEANS IN THE STORE,
BUT TYPICALLY THE WAY I LIKE TO DO IT IS THE QUICK-SOAK METHOD
WHERE YOU PUT 3 CUPS OF WATER PER CUP OF BEANS INTO A BIG POT.
>> BECAUSE THEY EXPAND.
>> YEAH. AND THEN YOU BRING IT TO A BOIL, AND THEN YOU LET IT
SIT FOR AN HOUR, AND THEN AFTER THAT, I LIKE TO PUT THEM IN THE
SLOW COOKER, BUT YOU CAN COOK THEM IN THE PRESSURE COOKER OR
NOWADAYS THEY HAVE THESE NEW THINGS THAT ARE CALLED BEAN
COOKERS, AND THOSE COOK THEM QUICKLY. AND DIFFERENT SIZE
BEANS, OF COURSE, NEED DIFFERENT LENGTHS OF TIME TO COOK.
A BIGGER BEAN IS GONNA NEED A LITTLE BIT LONGER OR BEAN SOUP
MAYBE THAT HAS THE BIG LIMA BEANS IN IT WILL NEED A LITTLE
BIT LONGER TO COOK, BUT THAT'S A GREAT WAY TO DO IT. AND THEN
LIKE YOU SAID, THE BEANS FREEZE SO WELL THAT YOU CAN USE THEM IN
RECIPES OR JUST PUT THEM IN THE MICROWAVE AND HAVE THEM FOR
LUNCH. HA HA!
>> WELL, AND WE TALKED ABOUT HOW BEANS GIVE YOU THAT FULL
FEELING, AND WITH SO MUCH EMPHASIS NOW ON OBESITY WITH
YOUNG PEOPLE AS WELL AS WITH ADULTS, BEANS PLAY A CERTAIN
ROLE IN THAT, TOO.
>> THEY ARE GOOD FOR SATIETY.
THERE HAVE BEEN SOME STUDIES, PARTICULARLY ONE IN BRAZIL,
SHOWING THAT IT HELPED PEOPLE STAVE OFF HUNGER BECAUSE THEY
FELT FULLER.
>> FULLER LONGER.
>> YEAH, AND THEY CAN BE VERSATILE IN THE CAN, IN THE
PACKAGE. YOU CAN BUY BEAN PRODUCTS LIKE THE GOOD BEAN
CHIPS OR LITTLE THINGS OF BEAN DIP, AND WE'RE SEEING MORE AND
MORE OF THAT.
>> WHAT ABOUT--YOU MENTIONED ALL THE DIFFERENT VARIETIES OF
BEANS. ARE THEY ALL GROWN ABOUT THE SAME TIME OF THE YEAR AND
HARVESTED ABOUT THE SAME TIME?
>> TYPICALLY THEY ARE PLANTING BEANS ABOUT THE END OF MAY,
FIRST PART OF JUNE, HARVESTING THEM IN SEPTEMBER. LAST YEAR, OF
COURSE, WE HAD HAIL AND A TERRIBLE DROUGHT, AND YOU KNOW
HOW THAT GOES ON THE FARM, BUT BEANS ARE A VALUABLE CROP FOR
MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE PRODUCERS BECAUSE THEY ALSO FIX THAT
NITROGEN INTO THE SOIL, SO THEY'RE USED A LOT IN CROP
ROTATION AND HAVE BEEN FOR A LONG TIME. NATIVE AMERICAN
LORE CITES BEANS AS PART OF THE 3 SISTERS, AND THE 3 SISTERS
BACK THEN WERE CONSIDERED CORN AND SQUASH AND BEANS. CORN MADE
A WONDERFUL STALK FOR THE BEANS TO CLIMB UP, AND THEN THE SQUASH
ROUNDED OUT THE DIET, AND IT ALSO HELPED THEM. THEY WERE VERY
SOPHISTICATED IN THEIR USE OF THE BEANS, AND THEY DIDN'T KNOW
ABOUT NITROGEN FIXATION, BUT THEY KNEW THAT THIS WAS HELPING
THEIR SOIL AND HELPING THEIR CROPS BE SUSTAINABLE.
>> I SEE, THE CROP ROTATION.
MAKES SENSE. I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THE 3 SISTERS ACTUALLY MEANT.
>> IF YOU GO TO THE USDA BUILDING IN WASHINGTON, D.C.,
THERE'S A POT OUT IN FRONT OF THE BUILDING. IT HAS THE 3
SISTERS PLANTED.
>> WELL, THAT'S WONDERFUL.
WELL, IT'S REALLY INTERESTING. THERE'S LOTS OF
GREAT INFORMATION ON YOUR WEBSITE, WHICH IS...
>> WWW.BEANSFORHEALTH.COM.
>> BEANSFORHEALTH.COM.
WELL, I SURELY APPRECIATE YOU BEING HERE AND SHARING SOME OF
THESE TIPS AND TRICKS WITH USING BEANS.
>> OH, I'M SO HAPPY TO BE HERE, AND I ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY TO TRY
A NEW VARIETY THIS WEEK.
>> I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SHOW TODAY. NEXT TIME ON "CREATIVE
LIVING," WE'LL DEMONSTRATE A VARIETY OF FESTIVE FOODS AND
SHOW YOU SOME BEAUTIFUL FINISHES FOR UNLINED JACKETS. ONE OF MY
NEXT GUESTS WILL DEMONSTRATE SOME RECIPES FOR FESTIVE FAMILY
GATHERINGS INCLUDING FAMILY REUNIONS AND HOLIDAYS. HER
EMPHASIS WILL BE ON CHICKEN RECIPES, BUT SHE'LL ALSO PREPARE
SIDE DISHES, HOT ROLLS, AND EVEN DESSERT. ANOTHER GUEST IS A
CUSTOM DRESSMAKER, ARTIST, AND DESIGNER, AND SHE'LL TALK ABOUT
THE BENEFITS OF UNLINED JACKETS AND SHOW SOME BEAUTIFUL
FINISHES. THESE INCLUDE A FRENCH SEAM, A ROBE EDGE SEAM, BIAS
BINDING USING A HONG KONG FINISH. SHE EXPLAINS THAT
UNLINED JACKETS ARE SO EASY TO STITCH UP, THEY'RE PERFECT IN
WARMER WEATHER TO WARD OFF AN EVENING CHILL OR TO WEAR WHEN
THERE'S EXCESSIVE AIR CONDITIONING, AND BEST OF ALL,
THEY'RE LIGHTWEIGHT AND EASY TO PACK FOR TRAVELING. BOTH OF
THESE TOPICS WILL BE FEATURED ON THE NEXT "CREATIVE LIVING" SHOW.
