Red Lentils, Tomatoes & Mushrooms ~ A Hearty Bowl ‘o Vegan Eats

Thumbnail image for Red Lentils, Tomatoes & Mushrooms ~ A Hearty Bowl ‘o Vegan Eats

Following on the heels of a flubber-inducing two week holiday (read my going Vegan for a day on cruise), it was time to detox from all the great grub. Mushrooms convinced me I needed to cook them pronto; they were growing frantically. What, YOU don’t grow your own mushrooms?

Cruise Eating ~ What Most Passengers Will Probably Never Do

Let’s talk cruise food: on cruises, you eat often and well. Anything. Any time. From modest all-American hot dogs to heady caviar-lobster-prime rib blowouts. So here I was, Day 3 of a Regent Seven Seas Voyager journey around the Baltic Sea, already flat-lining from animal protein. Our agenda was two weeks of pig-out. Dare I […]

Fresh Herb and Mushroom Risotto for Meatless Monday

Thumbnail image for Fresh Herb and Mushroom Risotto for Meatless Monday

My Monday breakfast was leftover Fresh Herb and Mushroom Risotto. And if I hadn’t pigged out this weekend (Temecula… upcoming post), I would have topped this with a poached egg. Leftover risotto makes me as happy as just-prepared. I luv makin’ it and I luv eatin’ it. Today, my challenge to you is to throw […]

The Best Baked Corn Recipe I’ve Tried

Interesting what a smidge of sugar does for a savory corn recipe. This was published a few Christmases ago in Parade magazine. I LOVED the short list of staple ingredients. Now, I will readily admit that when someone refers to a recipe as “Best,” that doesn’t mean much. But when Larry goes back for seconds, whoa… […]

Gloria's Scalloped Potatoes by Worth The Whisk

Let’s see if I paid attention to how my mom, Gloria, made her scalloped potatoes. She was always peeling potatoes; there were seven of us. And she had no recipe box if I remember, just a mental arsenal of foods we would consume without debate. There were no extra items for any fussy eater. Either […]

Baked Olives in Cheese Appetizer

Another Wisconsin inspiration. Dinner party at Barbara and David’s, the Wisc. connection is Barbara. Her mom was from Kewaunee, Wisc. My parents are both from Kewaunee, Wisc. If this doesn’t sound odd, we all live in Los Angeles, including the folks, who only reconnected when we kids made the hometown discovery. Kewaunee is an teensy […]

Menus for Meatless Mondays

These will be two busy weeks. Saturday, I conduct Camp Blogaway Day Camp. The following weekend, another camp takes place, Camp GetAway for Mothers & Others.  WHEW, but I am still thinking about YOU, my friendly readers. I wanted to post something useful, yet let myself off the hook for cooking, photographing, recipe writing. Aha! […]

Pumpkin Cream Soup

My week was bookended by funerals. Tuesday, longtime friend Vicki of Pink-Link laid her Grandma to rest, 100 years old. It was a sweet sendoff. Then Saturday, we said goodbye to Paul Conrad, my parents’ four-decade pal and fellow party animal. In my youth, when their “gang” shot pool at our house, Conrad’s booming “GET […]

Grilled Badda Bing Flatbread Pizzas

K, I admit that my little pizza is not a pretty shape. And… a teensy bit burned on the edge, too. I decided not to Photoshop my mistake, but rather be honest and point it out. My oven rack was too close to the heat in the broiler, that was the source of the problem.  […]

Mushroom, Basil and Goat Cheese Lasagna Roll-Ups

There’s this thing out there called Wordless Wednesday. I think food bloggers tire of writing posts, but have some nice food photos to share, so they use Wednesday to get caught up. I like the idea. So, consider this an Almost Wordless Wednesday post. I created this Mushroom, Basil and Goat Cheese Lasagna Roll-Ups for […]

Simple San Diego Sandwich

It may look unassuming, but I’d been dreaming about this sandwich recently. THIS was the quintessential sammy of my San Diego college years and a defining food for me. Back when I was “college poor,” hanging with cheap friends, I rarely ate in restaurants. But I remember this sandwich, practically every San Diego casual menu […]

Lemon and Goat Cheese Pasta

Here is last night’s dinner — an adaptation of the easiest recipe imaginable penned by friend Erika of In Erika’s Kitchen. Her Meyer Lemon Spaghetti with Goat Cheese spoke to me. And I hadn’t planned on photographing the meal; I was just interested in eating it. But Larry said, “no, shoot it.”  Wayadaminnit, that’s strange… […]
