Cold salad vegetables, water and fruit are always a key part of my survival strategy once the weather gets hot–and by hot, I mean by Pasadena standards, 90-plus, which it’s finally started hitting–along with a very large part of the US this week. It’s normal here, even though we had an unusually cool and rainy ..read more

I have to apologize. In recent years, especially the last five or six, when daily outrage at the headlines suddenly became normal, to say nothing of the pandemic, I’ve been known to take a few months between posts, partly because in that environment I had doubts–how does food match up in importance with the current ..read more

This vegetable-filled quiche is a flexible dairy main dish with a Mediterranean vibe thanks to its fillo crust. It looks a little fancier than an ordinary quiche, but it's not actually difficult to put together, and you can reheat and recrisp individual pieces quickly in the toaster oven the next day ..read more

The Rose Parade is something I've looked forward to seeing every year since I moved to Pasadena. This year's parade is the first since the pandemic began, and the weather turned sunny after a week of unusually hard rains. A good sign, and this year the themes include vaccination access for all, music, new experiences, and vegetables. Yes, that's right, the true stars of the floats are vegetables, seeds, beans and spices. Especially brussels sprouts. We could all do with more of those ..read more

Irish soda bread is easy, quick and adaptable, but it has a reputation for going heavy and rocklike within a day. Most people blame the whole wheat or the lack of yeast. I blame the soda. You can lighten up and get better flavor and texture at the same time ..read more

But a "just us" Thanksgiving...the menu I've put together is fresh, fast and mostly microwaveable--artichokes, wild rice pilaf, salmon, broccoli, salad, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, and maybe some mushroom caps. Add a cheap cheese freak's appetizer plate and some olive-rosemary faux-sourdough and you've got a party ..read more
