Individual-Coffee-Chocolate-Mud-Pie-Recipe-bite

My dad turned 80 last week.  80! Think of every positive, loving adjective you can, and my dad’s all that. Plus, he’s the most youthful, active 80-year-old in existence. My dad doesn’t have a day without an hour with the LA Times and his dog at the local coffee shop, a hike and/or a visit […]

A couple of days ago I shared my top picks for this year’s Gifts For the Cook Who (You Think) Has Everything — and I love everything on it!  The prices vary on that list — from low (ish) to high.  On this list, the prices don’t vary much — they’re from low to lower.  These […]

I know I’ve told you this a few times, but this recipe requires that I tell you again . . . food is an art medium. You can create art with watercolors, acrylics, pastels, and yes, today — plums. My idea was to create a simple, delicately flavored dessert that would look much like swirls […]

Around this time last year, I went to the beautiful Ojai Valley in Southern California with Melissa’s Produce to learn all about Ojai Pixie Tangerines.  I shared this experience here, and it’s a great prelude to any Ojai Pixie recipe (in my humble opinion). 😉

I guess you could say my mom is a creature of habit in the restaurant department.  At the moment, if she and my dad are out for dinner, I know exactly where they are and what my mom is ordering.  (My dad changes it up a bit.)

Black Muscato Grape Flaugarde Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

Sunday’s are my favorite day to cook and bake. My boys are usually running around wildly, having fun, and being especially loud and crazy.  (And when I say “boys,” that includes my husband.)  And while it warms my heart that they’re so full of joy, I don’t run wildly with them. Go figure.  This is […]

Port Plum Glazed Cookies and Vanilla Cream | Cooking On The Weekends

Forgive me if I sound like a broken record, but I must mention it yet again. My dad has the most amazing garden, full with fruit and vegetables at any given time of the year.   This is one of the many reasons I’m so fortunate to quite close to my parents’ house. While the tomatoes […]

Seville Orange-Key Lime Pie with Cardamom Crust | Cooking On The Weekends

I know it’s likely we’re all thinking about Valentine’s Day chocolates, however I couldn’t wait another moment before sharing this recipe because Seville Oranges are in season right now. Never having tried one, I was so happy Melissa’s Produce sent me Seville Oranges for recipe testing — they are not like any orange I’ve tasted […]
