Lemon Poppyseed Yogurt Bread

Lemon Poppyseed Yogurt Bread

Lemon poppyseed bread is one of those snacks (desserts?) that pops into my head and I just have to run out and buy a loaf or make it myself. Usually I choose the prior, out of sheer urgency to fulfill my craving. But this time I made it at work and I found it hard [...]

Butternut Squash & Spinach Lasagna

Butternut Squash & Spinach Lasagna

Is it possible to make a super-healthy lasagna? I’m sure it is, but I am not one to skimp on cheese, and going vegetarian with a lasagna is about as close to healthy as it gets for me. Both my bosses and the kids I nanny really enjoyed this lasagna—it is a great fall family [...]

Curried Veggie Stew

Curried Veggie Stew

This is my take on curry made with whatever seasonal vegetables I have, coconut milk or coconut cream (depending on how decadent I’m feeling), some raisins and an apple for a bite of sweetness and warm spices that are perfect for a chilly day. About 5 years ago, I ate a coconut curry at the [...]

Michelle’s Pumpkin Waffles

Michelle’s Pumpkin Waffles

Pumpkin Waffles!! I cannot write the name of this recipe without at least two of these: !! I also cannot make this recipe without doubling it—thus the mountain of pumpkin waffles featured today. Why make a mountain of waffles? Because they keep in the fridge for a week and in the freezer for far longer—and if you’re [...]

Thai Crab Fried Rice

Thai Crab Fried Rice

A few years ago, when I worked at a small marketing communications firm in Old Pasadena, I became a regular at a local Thai restaurant. A colleague and I never grew tired of sharing the lunch special four times a week at our desks. The owner Sue, aware of our frugal ways, would always slip in [...]

Green Beans in Tarragon Dressing

Green Beans in Tarragon Dressing

This is one of my favorite ways to eat green beans. So simple. It is a good idea to make the dressing a few hours or even the day before, so the tarragon flavor has time to seep in. And sorry, I never write down exact amounts, so these are guesses. Taste and adjust. TARRAGON DRESSING: 2-3 tablespoons [...]

Michelle’s Tzatziki (Greek Yogurt) Sauce

Michelle’s Tzatziki (Greek Yogurt) Sauce

Those Greeks got it goin’ on in the food department. I mean seriously: the olives, the meats, the vegetables; pita dipped in the most delicious sauces… which brings us to this month’s recipe from my house to yours. As the rest of the country is sliding into fall, here in the foothills of Southern California we have [...]

Minced Chicken in a Lettuce Leaf or Cup

Minced Chicken in a Lettuce Leaf or Cup

I used to crave the lettuce cups we could order at Chi Dynasty in Los Feliz and decided I would make my own variation at home based on a mash up of different ones I had tried at various restaurants over the years. The result is a crunchy, crisp, salty, savory bite with a variety [...]
