The signature or national dish of a country or state or city can be counted on to be interesting and delicious, because it has been around for ages and has been perfected by numerous cooks. A whole country can’t be wrong, can it? Unfortunately I am not going to be able to visit every country, [...]

“Croque-Madame” Brunch Gratin was the entrée recipe for the Easter Family Brunch class at Grace-Marie’s Kitchen at Bristol Farms in Manhattan Beach last week. I have to say, this Gratin was one of the best things I have eaten recently, with buttery crusted bread topped with Swiss cheese, prosciutto, asparagus, béchamel and a beautiful egg [...]

Here I am, I’ve lived in Los Angeles since 1972, where there are more Mexican restaurants per capita second only to Mexico itself and I have never eaten Huevos Rancheros. Can you believe it? Everyone I know has eaten it, if not made it themselves and every blogger [...]

Ok, so you are immediately scratching your head, wondering what in the heck is going on with these photographs, right? I am in the middle of a nightmare over here. I got a new computer with Windows 7 and I couldn’t get my Photoshop Elements 7 to work correctly with it. Something about 64 bit [...]

Do you remember last June, when I was making Pistachio and Goat Cheese Wrapped Grapes and I told you Kim, from Rustic Garden Bistro, came for lunch and brought me fresh many-hued eggs from her very own chickens? Well, I wanted to make something really special with them and I think this Roasted Asparagus and [...]

The day after Thanksgiving I was perusing the leftovers in my refrigerator, when, gasping with horror, I realized I had three hard-cooked eggs that I had been planning to use in an appetizer, but hadn’t had time to make. Now I had three eggs that I had to use within a day or they would [...]

I should never go to a bookstore, because no matter what my original mission was, I invariably end up in the cookbook section. Without fail. I make a stack of all the new ones with beautiful photographs on the cover and find a place to sit where I can look at them page by page, [...]

I wanted my first post to be an Eggs Benedict recipe, because I think it is one of the most wonderful dishes ever invented by man. I love the drama of the stacked ingredients, the variations in texture, from crunchy to creamy, and of course the buttery, lemony Hollandaise Sauce that marries all of the [...]
