TumblrEmailOther Share Options

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 […]

Michelle’s Hearty Summer Salad

Michelle’s Hearty Summer Salad

Lazy days of summer… not! My kiddos are keeping me busy this summer. Apparently it takes some serious fuel to keep three kids chugging along under the the So Cal sun (who knew?) because all I hear between swimming lessons, bike riding, and friends, friends, friends is “We’re hungry!” This salad is a good staple […]

Contributed by Laura Derr Ingredients: Polenta: 2 cups polenta or cornmeal (whichever you have on hand) 1½ cups water 1½ cups 2% milk 2 cloves garlic, halved ½ teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon unsalted butter ½ cup cheese of your choice (I recommend either an asiago blend or goat cheese—two different flavors, but equally good) Greens: 1 […]

Homemade Bruschetta

Homemade Bruschetta

This month I would love to share my absolutely favorite recipe for my absolutely favorite summer appetizer: Bruschetta!  There is nothing—repeat NOTHING—tastier than good bruschetta on a hot summer’s afternoon.  Fancy-shmancy restaurants charge a small fortune for this simple gathering of summer flavors, and I’m telling you, once you whip this up you’ll never order […]

Piña Colada Pancakes

Piña Colada Pancakes

I’ll bet nobody’s sent in this recipe! Next month, I’ll be doing brushetta. I actually had it all ready for this month, but my kids begged me to do pancakes first. Start with scrumptious Buttermilk Pancakes… Ingredients: 1 cup flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoons baking powder ¼ teaspoon baking soda 2 teaspoons sugar 1 […]

A New World of Creamy

A New World of Creamy

Quick, what’s white in color, has no fat, and can turn a mac and cheese dish into a good source of vitamin C, fiber and potassium? Normally, anything white makes the diet-conscious eater think, “Not me. No, thank you.” However, this pale pal is a low-carb-lover’s dream. Give up yet? (I know, I threw you […]

Tuna Salad with Tarragon

Tuna Salad with Tarragon

Tuna salad can go, oh, so many ways: sweet, pickled, and crunchy; exotic, spicy, or unadorned; and augmented by macaroni, arugula, cottage cheese, or parmesan. Whether you’re using Bumblebee or grinding up last night’s yellowfin steaks, tuna salad is—almost—as American as apple pie. Tuna salad can be made with: Miracle Whip—we swear!—it’s called “Tempting Tuna […]

Garbanzo-Bulgur Wheat-Lemon-Herb Salad

Garbanzo-Bulgur Wheat-Lemon-Herb Salad

Here is one of my new fave salad recipes. It is serious yum action… Ingredients: 1 cup bulgur wheat 2 cups water 1½ teaspoons salt 3 tablespoons red onion, diced 1 red bell pepper, diced 2 small Persian (or other) cucumbers, diced ⅓-½ cup chopped fresh parsley ⅓-½ cup chopped fresh dill ¼ cup fresh […]

Balsamic Strawberries

Balsamic Strawberries

One the surface, this recipe has an unusual, perhaps even off-putting, combination of ingredients for a dessert, but we’re here to say that this is beyond delicious. When served with high-quality vanilla ice cream or gelato, we’d actually call it profound. Ingredients 2 tablespoons balsamic 1-2 tablespoons of sugar ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper […]
