It could have been a disaster. With the entire meal staged, ingredients prepped and timed, my friends Bonnie and Doug waited in anticipation as I prepared to cook herb-crusted rack of lamb, grilled asparagus and potatoes a la boulangere. But when I flicked the switch on my old faithful KitchenAid Blender our ears were greeted […]]]>

I’ve prepared this soup in the heart of winter here in Southern California, my east-coast and middle US friends and readers will be quick to point out that the winter I’m experiencing here is barely comparable to the winter experienced elsewhere in the USA, Canada and the rest of the world. Nonetheless, we are experiencing […]]]>

With the heat of summer, the waves pounding on the beach and the palm trees swaying with the breeze, I find myself dreaming of Tanzania, the Indian Ocean and the historic island of Zanzibar.

he pace of life, schedules, commitments and deadlines hit me hard when I finally slowed down for dinner on a Sunday evening.

hat do you do with your old corks? Like many wine drinkers I do have a love-hate relationship with corks. Like so many crafts, there are some beautifully created corks, and there is a slew of mediocrity. Some years ago I showed up late to a personal  wine tasting at a tony Napa Valley winery. […]]]>

My love for coffee started at an early age. That is, I loved coffee ice cream. With all the flavors in the world, I was consistent and always chose coffee ice cream.

With the heat of the summer sun blazing down, I find myself looking to either cook more outside on the BBQ or preparing simple salads in the kitchen so I do not need to fire up the oven or stovetop.
