Cooking Light? Try THEIR Chocolate Chip Cookies

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 […]

It’s January. {Deep sigh} Time to re-acquaint myself with my LoseIt app (it counts my calories). But, DANG… it’s a cold LA Sunday. I want to turn on the oven and warm up the house by baking a cinnamony German Apple Pancake like this previous post.

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.

OPA! For years, I’ve wanted to attend Greekfest at LA’s stunning St. Sophia’s Greek Orthodox Cathedral. I’m a native Angelino, yet had only been inside once before for the wedding of our favorite Greek, Helen. Larry’s been there often; his high school, Loyola, is next door.  No waiting for the right year, I attended yesterday, […]

Lemon Lentils

Autumn ~ the automatic trigger for my tummy to crave comfort food. Ordinarily, that means mashed potatoes or mac n’ cheese, but the ol’ hippie in me decided to cook lentils with lemon. Larry scarfed them down, and he doesn’t have an ounce of hippie in him. Lentils are legumes. Cheap eats. No soaking. Nutritional […]

Mocha Marshmallows

Why make homemade marshmallows?  Because they really are SO much better than store-bought.   Fresh, fresh, yummy fresh.  Another reason is, because you are a grownup now, so you can do stuff to them, like make a batch with Amaretto.  I did that, and then decided it didn’t really do anything for them, but dredging them […]

Chilled Gazpacho

Somebody tell me:  why does any vacation now result in me coming home with a “muffin top” (aka pot belly)?  I’m technically a lean-ish person, but lately, yikes.   Even places with not great food, I channel Miss Piggy.  Thus, when we get back home to our “grind of choice” (as my friend, Cathi calls it), […]
