cheese-collage-2.jpg

Wisconsin ~ from whence my folks hail. We grew up on cheese. Not great cheese; it was mostly crummy cheap stuff back then. But cheese still makes me happy. And it’s an easy cooking ingredient. My gift to you… a roundup of four keeper cheese recipes.

hot-croque-monsieur.jpg

Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin. All eating, all the time. The movie “It’s Complicated” is now Tivo-able. It’s the kind of chick flick I love because, besides hilarious middle-age angst, there’s a lot of great looking real food.  Did you ask, “what’s that cheesy thing Meryl served Steve” (which then made Alec swoon)?  They […]

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 […]

JSix.jpg

What you see here is what awaits you on a walking food tour of downtown San Diego. SD was my college town. Back then, the only reason to go downtown was… uh, well, there was no reason. The closest I may have gotten was my stint working in a Mexican restaurant in Old Towne, but […]

Simple San Diego Sandwich

SanDiegoSandwich.jpg

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 […]

Bacon Macaroni and Cheese

BaconMacaroniandCheese.jpg

Bacon, bacon, bacon.  It’s not something that is always in the fridge here, and when it is, it takes several recipes to use it up.  Frankly, I’d love to consume multiple strips each morning; guilt overrides that.  What to cook with some el tocino? Four slices are needed for Bacon Mac N’ Cheese.  If ever […]

This really IS Ronnie Reagan’s recipe.  The recipe clip has been in my binder for ages, and it’s darn good stuff.  Mac ‘n Cheese has become a signature family dish, thanks to my sister-in-law, Lynne (who I call “Sissy”). Last Thanksgiving, she brought a whopping slab of it to my sister Gretchen’s big feast; Sissy […]
