L.A. Mexicano

L.A. Mexicano

Pocho cooking is the original L.A. Mexicano, the food that many second- and third-generation Mexican Americans grew up eating, and the dishes that everyone in L.A. considered truly Mexican until we started knowing better in the 1990s: the enchiladas and tostadas that L.A.-born college kids craved when away at college, the trays of taquitos served […]

Sarah Michelle Gellar: Stirring Up Fun

Sarah Michelle Gellar: Stirring Up Fun

We still remember years ago when our girl went on a Buffy the Vampire Slayer binge watch—and sucked us right in with her. But Buffy is long in Sarah Michelle Gellar’s rear view mirror and on April 10, she will discuss and sign her cookbook Stirring Up Fun with Food: Over 115 Simple, Delicious Ways to […]

Page to Table

Page to Table

Two of our favorite things: books and food. More precisely, cookbooks and the products of such. Altadena Public Library has launched a new kind of book club: “From Page to Table,” a potluck for those who love to browse or scour all sorts of cookbooks—and then race home to start cooking. If your cookbook collection […]

Fairies in the Kitchen: Weezie Bat Food

Fairies in the Kitchen: Weezie Bat Food

L. A. and magic realism. “A place where life is a mystery, pain can lead to poetry, strangers become intertwined souls, and everyone is searching for the most beautiful and dangerous angel of all: love.” Francesca Lia Block‘s Weetzie Bat series has been called a “sophisticated, slinkster-cool love song to L. A., the book that […]

Buffalo Sprouts

Buffalo Sprouts

Unfortunately, wings are often floured, and even when they’re not, they usually serve up as much saturated fat and cholesterol as they do heat. This recipe banishes the bad stuff, but keeps the spice. Easy to put together, my Buffalo hummus sauce magically transforms Brussels […]

The wonderful world of flavors, textures, and tastes evaporates before our very eyes as we consider the reality of a gluten free holiday menu. We might as well growl, “Ba humbug” and […]
