Follow Chili Cheese Fritos!     When I was in high school, in Delano, California, a new little eatery opened on Main Street.  Our sophomore year, Sarah got her driver’s license, and we would occasionally leave school for lunch, and head to Main Street.  This is a silly little recipe, but it really is...

Follow  Guava Cheese Cake     Guavas are my most favorite of fruits. I love their taste, of course, but also their fragrance, which I find as enticing as a vase of gardenias – there should be a guava scented air freshener! Fresh guavas are neither easy to find nor very affordable, if you...

Follow Creamed Spinach     Creamed Spinach first came into my life in one of those old steak houses, in the Los Angeles of old, with dark lighting and oak bars, that served cocktails with names no one orders anymore, as well as huge portions! This is actually a simple dish, once you...

Follow Pickled Cauliflower       Do not be afraid of pickling! Especially when you are making pickles that will be refrigerated thus; you do not have to worry about whether or not you have achieved the perfect canning seal. I have always loved pickled vegetables, with their great texture and...

Follow Pie Crust!     I am feeling the desire for comfort food; and I have to say pie goes a long way toward making me feel safe and happy. Both sweet and savory pies are delicious and conjure up memories of special occasions, like being allowed to tag along with...

Follow Rice Pudding     My Mother would often make rice pudding, as a special treat, when we were young. This is still one of my favorite desserts.  There is little that provides more comfort than a warm bowl of creamy rice pudding – except of course cold rice pudding! Ingredients:...

Follow Papaya And Mango Chutney     When I was in seventh grade we moved to Hawaii, and it was there that I was introduced to the wonders of papaya, which was incredibly plentiful, and thus not a delicacy to be savored on rare occasions. The Hawaiian papaya is smaller and...
