Michelle’s Quinoa Salad

Michelle’s Quinoa Salad

It took me a while to fall in love with quinoa, but I’m happy to say that we are now close friends. For best savory results, sauté quinoa with onion and olive oil before boiling. Also see below for other quinoa tips. Then you can make this delicious, nutritious, and gorgeous salad—and won’t you be […]

Turmeric Eggs with Tomatoes and Caramelized Onions

Turmeric Eggs with Tomatoes and Caramelized Onions

I love eggs. I love them for breakfast, for brunch, for lunch, for dinner. I love them prepared any which way. My go-to breakfast is a fried egg over potatoes and other veggies or a scramble with whatever I have in the fridge. Yesterday morning, I mixed up my usual plain eggs by adding turmeric. […]

Hello Dolly!

Hello Dolly!

I don’t know if you call these Hello Dollies or 7-layer cookie bars or coconut chocolate nut bars, but whatever you want to call them, they are a mighty delicious, decadent dessert. It took all of 5 minutes to throw together and after 28 minutes of baking, they were ready to go. Fridge: 1½ sticks […]

Caprese Sandwiches

Caprese Sandwiches

My girlfriend, Teri, is actually the wonderful chef who introduced me to these tasty sandwiches. It was love at first sight…taste…whatever. My girls and I (my son is not a tomato fan—go figure) have been hooked on caprese sandwiches ever since we wolfed ’em down at the party where Teri and I first met. This […]

Jalapeño Pineapple Sangria

Jalapeño Pineapple Sangria

Editor’s note: Get ready, folks. Weather Underground’s weekly forecast for San Gabriel Valley… The coolest we will be is Monday at a high of 81°F. The sun will sear us increasingly throughout the week, culminating in a high of 90°F on Sunday, March 15th. In light of this, we thought Jamieson’s refreshing sangria might be […]

Chili Cornmeal Tart

Chili Cornmeal Tart

This hearty dish has been a staple in my cooking for over a year, so I was surprised when a friend asked me for the recipe and I wanted to direct her here, only to realize I hadn’t done a post about it. Like so many of my favorite dishes, this is just a slight […]

The Best Ever Key Lime Pie

The Best Ever Key Lime Pie

I’m not usually one to brag about my cooking—and I’m definitely not one to brag about my baking. I am not a pastry chef. But since guests at my restaurant (including Floridians) tell me that my Key Lime pie is the best they’ve ever had—I feel like it’s safe to brag about it. This recipe […]
