Chicken Biryani ~ Indian Comfort Food After Stressful Weeks


  Chicken Biryani is Indian comfort food. I needed some. My mom is sick. No, actually Mom is injured. She’s had back surgery, is rehabilitating. Family stressed. Dad is in dire need of sleep and Alone Time (which he gets ‘til she goes home). Doctors, walkers, wheelchairs, meds, anybody who has been here knows. No […]

Greek Chicken Frikase–Yes I Spelled That Right


This Frikase is not Fricassee. This Frikase recipe is Greek – a super tender chicken dish cooked up with romaine lettuce, then swirled (NOT stirred) with a lip-smacking egg lemon sauce. Even reheated two days later, it was still yummy. I just love lemon-flavored Greek eats.

Chicken Mushroom Soup & How to Be Sexy

But you come here for recipes {the blog name Worth The Whisk and all}, and I post tasty, useful, good ones. This is Chicken Mushroom Soup. In July. […]

Chicken with Olives and Lemons


It was a dark and stormy night. Well, truth is, it was a sloppy wet January Monday afternoon; we aren’t used to rain here so we make a big thing out of it in LA. And rain makes me want to cook. Chicken with Olives and Lemons was my plan, using edibles from the yard. […]

Tee Pon Chicken (aka Sherry-Soy Chicken)


Advice, please?  I was cooking a simple Tee Pon Chicken recipe, but fretting about photographing “ugly” brown on brown — dark shredded chicken over brown rice. Forget garnishes, I was HUNGRY and it smelled divine. Taking pictures of meat is a crap-shoot (sorry, kinda graphic when talking about food) but I really wanted to share […]

White Pepper Chicken Barley Soup Made By A Sometimes Princess


Lucky timing, rain hit the morning after the Valley Performing Arts Center black tie opening. My little satin pumps woulda been ruined! There I was, in line for the potty with Calista Flockhart; Harrison Ford was waiting out in the hall. I people-watched next to Doris Roberts. Moved my tootsies so Beau Bridges could scoot […]

My Panda Express “Top Chef” Experience


Walk out our front door, head East on foot, the closest restaurant is a half mile straight into the UCLA campus… Panda Express. I like their food. I also run errands then – buy stamps (US post office in Ackerman Union) and greeting cards (Bruin Bookstore).  So what is this photo of a non-existent Dancing […]

Troy Garza’s Chicken Breast/White Potato Chili Verde


High school was fun for me (that’s rare, right?). I had enough friends to keep me on the verge of trouble; for the most part, though, we skied, worked teenaged jobs, chased boys. Ours was a class of around 800, a big enough crowd to enable a mediocre student like me to hide from smart, […]

Look, Ma! I Made A Chicken Pot Pie


Larry and I are boomers. Frozen chicken pot pies were awesome eats in our formative years. They were cheap, salty, fatty, easy, high-cal pots o’ tasty stuff a kid, teen, babysitter, college student happily ate. Now, as conscientious grownups (buzz kill), we’d probably STILL eat those bombshells of bad nutrition if not for the consequences. […]

A Valentine’s Meal You Can Do, Sherie


Sherie and I were great pals in high school. She’s since raised three boys into independent grown men. Has been married forever. So I was surprised when she recently told me she “cannot cook.” Or doesn’t cook. Or is afraid to cook, the conversation was spotty since we were with a group of 15 fellow RHHS gal pals. But I didn’t forget it.

How Firefighters Cook and Eat


This is not Larry. Michael James is a Westwood, CA firefighter, and I cornered him at the grocery store.  Firehouse 37 is OUR neighborhood fire department. They were right there when Francoise’ vintage gravity heater blew a fireball, when Margie’s wall was mysteriously smoking, when senior neighbors fall ill and UCLA students do what they […]

Chicken Pumpkin Lemongrass Soup


Things to cook with pumpkin were getting boring here, so I thought an Asian flavored soup would be different. I took this ‘n that from about five recipes and came up with a pot of flavorful, thick Chicken Pumpkin Lemongrass Soup. What gave it Asian oomph was fresh-cut lemongrass from our patio. And juice from […]
