Cooking Light Chocolate Chip Cookie

Cooking Light Magazine — my fav. I tend to tear my issue apart more than any other periodical to try recipes.  Then guess what, they published a gigantic (500 page) book of their recipes, The New Way to Cook Light – Fresh Food & Bold Flavors for Today’s Home Cook.  That is a mouthful.  So […]

Baked-Omelete.jpg

This is what I baked up with whatever I found in the fridge that morning. Kind of a Whatever Baked Omelet – no crust, so it wasn’t a quiche.  Frittata? Whatever! It’s just eggs, milk, cheese, asparagus and cilantro.

Light Molasses Cookies

Larry is a crisp connoisseur. He likes cookies with crunch. He also loves when they have a spicy wallop. I prefer “al dente,” slightly soft. These Light Molasses Cookies ROCK for both of us – crisp crunchy edges, flavor that’s fairly intense. Then… right in the middle, awwww… a tender softness.

Chestnut Cakes

Do you remember THIS THROWDOWN (to myself)?  My jar of Roland chestnuts was befuddling. What the heck does a California girl make with chestnuts? Plenty of folks tweeted suggestions; most were savory (as in, toss with brussel sprouts. Seriously?). A few readers told me to eat them from the jar. Tempting, but I envisioned something […]

Last Minute Food Substitutions

Food-Substitutions-Bible.jpg

This week is Thanksgiving. And what should arrive on my doorstep from uber-culinary publicist Lisa Ekus?  The gigantic Food Substitutions Bible by David Joachim. It conjured memories of past Thanksgivings with friends and family – for which I am very grateful. And memories of “Oh S**T, there are no coffee filters!!”  And “Wasn’t vanilla extract […]

Kahlua-Pecan-Pie.jpg

Heavenly Kahlua Pecan Pie and I go way back. Kahlua was my favorite PR client.  Life Was Sweet. The majority of my Kahlua work was convincing consumers to make something yummy. Our goal was to remind people how MMMMM and OOOOH Kahlua tasted in practically anything – booze, coffee, milk, ice cream, cakes, barbecue sauce, ham […]

If you haven’t noticed, we’re a little […]
