Do you look forward to Thanksgiving every year as much as I do?
It is the one time during the year I think about all those family dinners past, especially when I was a kid. It was when all those old (to me at the time) relatives came over, and drink in hand, told tales of [...]

You know how, on January 1st, you make your New Year’s Resolutions? Well, I made an October 1st Resolution, which was to use up all the frozen stuff in my freezer before I bought any more food. I went to put something in there the other day and realized I couldn’t fit in one more [...]

Last May, over the Memorial Day Weekend, I attended Camp Blogaway for the fourth year and it was as fun, informative, inspiring, stimulating and full of blogging friends as the first time I went. However, this time around I decided to focus my story on the food. I mean, this was a food bloggers conference [...]

Plum Nectarine Oatmeal Crisp

I never make dessert for myself. Not only for the calorie component, but I’m just not into sugary stuff that much. As you may recall, I am the buttered popcorn queen. But for the last BBQ of the grilling season over Labor Day, I had to make something yummy for my guests and this was [...]

Shrimp Salad Sandwich with Spicy Lime Aioli

Thumbnail image for Shrimp Salad Sandwich with Spicy Lime Aioli September 6, 2013

I love leftovers. There’s just no two ways about it. And I swear, leftovers are the mother of invention, at least in my kitchen. So there I was, making a thousand spring rolls and my fridge was filled with 8 containers of different dipping sauces. And the recipes make a pretty fair amount, too. I [...]

I was looking at the schedule for which class I would visit next at Grace-Marie’s Kitchen and Wicky-Wacky Luau just jumped off the page. I knew there would be really interesting recipes and as I have never been to Hawaii, undoubtedly dishes I had never tasted before. Grace-Marie always has intriguing and new ingredients [...]

Sunday. I am all alone in my house for the whole day. This doesn’t happen very often. When my eyes popped open this morning all I could think about was what I was going to cook. All by myself in the kitchen. Nobody interrupting me. No loud music blaring. No UFC match yelling and cheering. [...]

Huevos Rancheros

Ok, let’s face it, I’m culturally deprived. 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 [...]

When I returned from my son’s wedding in May, after having my new daughter-in-law show me how to make spring rolls, I was totally enthralled with them. I made spring rolls every day for about two weeks with a variety of fillings, and I went on a quest for interesting dipping sauces to go with [...]

On January 1, 2013 I made my New Year’s Resolution list. Remember doing that? Well, my list had two items on it: 1) go on a diet; and 2) get some exercise. I don’t know about you, but I can’t diet until all the stars are properly aligned. You know, like there are no big [...]
