Cherry Tomato Crockpot Soup

IMAG0469.jpg

When a friend hands you 100+ homegrown, very ripe cherry tomatoes, just say THANKS and grab the slow cooker. This Fresh Cherry Tomato Soup crockpot recipe is a great idea, if I do say so myself. Sure, I could have made a ton of salsa, or salads out the wazoo, but I worked for the […]

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

Red-Lentils-and-Mushrooms-with-tomatoes.jpg

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?

What Meryl Streep Served Steve Martin in “It’s Complicated” ~ Croque Monsieur

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 […]

The following weekend, another camp takes place, Camp GetAway for Mothers & Others.  WHEW, but I am still thinking about YOU, my friendly readers.

Garbanzo, Onion and Tomato Salad from LA Greekfest

GreekGarbanzoTomatoOnionFetaSalad.jpg

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, […]

Emperor’s Farmers Market Salad

Entitled “Cucumber, Carrot and Tomato Salad,” the recipe served 130.  That’s a good sized “cooking for a crowd” recipe, but considered small at Project Angel Food.  This was my cooking task last week with fellow volunteer, Sarah.  Since it had great blogging/household dining potential, I wrote the full size recipe on a box sticker to […]

Egyptian Tomato Soup

This is a shout-out to a terrific collection of Aussies and Kiwis (plus a few Americans and one Canadian) from our trip to Egypt.  Together, we covered long distances, soaked up history, rode camels, climbed pyramids, got our Sphinx fix, and ate lots of mediocre food. Egyptian food is not so great.  Don’t drink the […]

Penne with Bacon Gravy

PennewithBaconGravy.jpg

Whoa baby, if you like a hearty belly-ful of pasta and flavor, use bacon AND whole wheat penne.  You won’t be hungry for days.  It is still June Gloom weather outside here and I haven’t lightened up my cooking yet for the next season.  We have a lot of dried pasta variations in the pantry, […]

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), […]

Friday afternoons, I volunteer at the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center as the Info Desk Lady.  My co-volunteer Marty is the Info Desk Guy.  Between screening visitors and handling queries like where are the bathrooms, the ER, the gift shop, the cafeteria, and “I’m in labor,” Marty and I discuss things.  One afternoon, we discussed […]
