Bean, Milo (Mike) - Salt Lake Tribune newspaper article - February 21, 1982

Contributor: finnsh Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Cooking is ‘survival’ and more by Donna Lou Morgan AMERICAN FORK - “I GO BY my taste,” Milo (Mike) Bean said. “If I want a piece of pie, I get busy and make one. If I want a piece of cake, I get out my measuring cup and the ingredients and make a cake. I bake all my own bread, and put together a good stew anytime. I cook to survive,” added this forever young 83-year-old. It hasn’t always been this way. Up until 12 years ago, Mr. Bean’s wife did most of the cooking for him, although he said he did work alongside her in the kitchen at times. “After her death, I simply decided I would have to cook. I had no choice. I could never exist on hamburgers from the drive-in all the time. They ‘doll’ them up too much. The only way I was to survive was to cook for myself.” When Mr. Bean began cooking again his thoughts went back to his growing-up years. “I remembered when I was about 15 years old watching and helping my mother cook for ranch hands when we were living in Nevada,” reflected this Provo native. “But what I could recall didn’t help too much. As I tried to reproduce her dishes, it would occur to me that mother had added a bowl of cream to a recipe. Then the realization would hit me that I didn’t have her particular bowl - so how was I to know exactly how much cream she stirred in. It was the same with her ‘2 sifts of flour’ or a ‘tad’ of this or that. “Then I would think about how she often opened the oven door of her wood stove and put her hand in to test if it was a ‘slow oven’ for baking. Of course, she had no thermostat. And, sadly I found, I didn’t have her touch. “MY ONLY GAUGE for making mother’s specialties was to experiment until I could reproduce the wonderful taste of the cakes, pies, breads and main dishes she had made for me as I was growing up. “And, even if I do say so myself,” he smiled, “I’ve done a pretty good job.” To look at the irresistible treats Mr. Bean had prepared was to know “pretty good job” was the understatement of the year. His Homemade Bread had beautiful texture and delicious flavor. His Raisin Nut Cake was superb. And the Cherry Pie this terrific cook had made boasted one of the flakiest, finest pie crusts ever. “My favorite dish is bread and milk,” Mr. Bean commented. “That’s the main reason I make my own bread because it HAS to be homemade bread and milk,” he pointed out. “I MAKE FOUR loaves at a time, then freeze them. When I get down to two loaves, I get busy and make another batch. I’m never without homemade bread. Haven’t bought a loaf at the store for 12 years.” Mr. Bean’s culinary activities have competition when springtime arrives. “As soon as I can, I get out golfing two or three times a week. And I insist on carrying my golf clubs. No cart for me,” he laughed. “I’m too young for that!” “I’ve decided there are three stages in life: young, middle aged and ‘you’re looking good.’ I’m in the ‘you’re looking good’ stage,” he mused. SUMMERTIME FINDS MR. Bean caring for an enormous garden. “It’s important for me to plant and grow an array of vegetables in my garden and plenty of fruit in the orchard so I am able to can and freeze enough to keep my year’s supply of food forever replenished. My wife and I always kept our year’s supply of food and I’ve continued to do so.” Always on Sunday, any time of the year, Mr. Bean invites his daughter, Mickie and her husband, Kenneth Lewis, Pleasant Grove, with his five granddaughters, for Sunday dinner. “I get up early Sunday morning and put the roast in the oven. Then I make pies or cakes and put on the vegetables when it gets time. All the grandkids like to come to grandpa’s house for Sunday dinner,” Mr. Bean added proudly. Recently Aimee Dawn, 4, the youngest of the Lewis’ offspring, spent a day with her grandfather helping him make Raisin Nut Cake. According to her mother, each of the girls has had this privilege many times in their lives. “Dad is so patient and sweet with them,” Mrs. Lewis said. “He has taken the time to show each how to make pie crust and other specialties. The girls love to work with him in the kitchen. And they think he’s the best cook in the world!” MR. BEAN SMILED as he said, “I just cook to satisfy myself. If someone else likes it, that’s okay, too.” The following recipes sent by excellent cook, Milo Bean, American Fork, will bring satisfying goodness to your dining table. Enjoy! Homemade White Bread 2 packages active dry yeast 1 cup warm water 1 teaspoon sugar 4 cups milk, scalded 4 tablespoons shortening or oil 4 tablespoons sugar 4 teaspoons salt 8 to 10 cups flour Dissolve yeast in the warm water with 1 teaspoon sugar added. Scald milk; add shortening or oil, 4 tablespoons sugar and salt; cool to lukewarm. Add dissolved yeast to lukewarm milk mixture with 5 cups of the flour. Beat until smooth and well blended. Add remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl; turn dough to grease on all sides. Cover and allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 1/2 hours. Punch down. Cover and allow to rise again until doubled. Divide dough into four portions; make each portion into a tight ball. Allow to rest 10 minutes. Form each portion of dough into a loaf. Place in greased 9 x 5-inch loaf tins. Cover and allow to rise until almost doubled. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes, or until bread is done. Remove from oven; cool on wire racks. Brush with butter while hot, if soft crust is desired. Makes four loaves. Pastry 2 1/4 cups flour, sifted 1 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons shortening 1/3 cup cold water Sift flour with salt into mixing bowl. Divide shortening in half; cut half into flour-salt mixture, then add the rest, cutting in until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cold water; blend lightly with fork just until all flour particles are moistened and mixture begins to leave side of bowl. Roll out as desired. “When I make a Cherry Pie, I simply take a quart of the sour cherries I have canned, thicken the juice and add a bit of sugar and flavoring.” Raisin Nut Cake 1 cup boiling water 1 teaspoon soda 3/4 cup raisins (ground) 1 cup sugar 1/3 cup shortening 2 large eggs 2 cups sifted flour 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup chopped nuts Boil water and add soda and ground raisins. Allow to stand while mixing remaining ingredients. Beat sugar, shortening and eggs until fluffy and well mixed. Add flour, salt and vanilla with raisin mixture; stir in chopped nuts, blending thoroughly. Pour into greased and lightly floured 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until done.

Life timeline of Milo Bean

Milo Bean was born on 10 Dec 1898
Milo Bean was 7 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Milo Bean was 18 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Milo Bean was 22 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
Milo Bean was 32 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
Milo Bean was 43 years old when World War II: The Imperial Japanese Navy made a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, intending to neutralize the United States Pacific Fleet from influencing the war Japan was planning to wage in Southeast Asia. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Milo Bean was 54 years old when Jonas Salk announced the successful test of his polio vaccine on a small group of adults and children (vaccination pictured). Jonas Edward Salk was an American medical researcher and virologist. He discovered and developed one of the first successful polio vaccines. Born in New York City, he attended New York University School of Medicine, later choosing to do medical research instead of becoming a practicing physician. In 1939, after earning his medical degree, Salk began an internship as a physician scientist at Mount Sinai Hospital. Two years later he was granted a fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he would study flu viruses with his mentor Thomas Francis, Jr.
Milo Bean was 65 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
Milo Bean was 79 years old when Star Wars is released in theaters. Star Wars is a 1977 American epic space opera film written and directed by George Lucas. It is the first film in the original Star Wars trilogy and the beginning of the Star Wars franchise. Starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Cushing, Alec Guinness, David Prowse, James Earl Jones, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, and Peter Mayhew, the film focuses on the Rebel Alliance, led by Princess Leia (Fisher), and its attempt to destroy the Galactic Empire's space station, the Death Star.
Milo Bean was 91 years old when Cold War: Fall of the Berlin Wall: East Germany opens checkpoints in the Berlin Wall, allowing its citizens to travel to West Berlin. The Berlin Wall was a guarded concrete barrier that physically and ideologically divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989. Constructed by the German Democratic Republic, starting on 13 August 1961, the Wall cut off West Berlin from virtually all of surrounding East Germany and East Berlin until government officials opened it in November 1989. Its demolition officially began on 13 June 1990 and finished in 1992. The barrier included guard towers placed along large concrete walls, accompanied by a wide area that contained anti-vehicle trenches, "fakir beds" and other defenses. The Eastern Bloc portrayed the Wall as protecting its population from fascist elements conspiring to prevent the "will of the people" in building a socialist state in East Germany.
Milo Bean died on 22 Jun 1993 at the age of 94
