16-Spice Chicken

16-Spice Chicken

This 16-Spice Chicken from Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill Cookbook is unbelievably good. You’ll want to be grilling all summer with this spice blend once you taste it.  Mix up the blend, place it in a spice jar and you’ll have enough for most of the summer, making dinner a cinch on those long hot nights.  Perfect for pot-luck barbecues too.

Coconut Curry Chicken Noodle Soup…Curry Mee

Coconut Curry Chicken Noodle Soup...Curry Mee

Coconut Curry Chicken Noodle Soup…Curry Mee

It was a cold January in Southern California and I was glad to have my Soup repertoire ready, starting with our January Soups, Stews & Bread class held earlier in the month. I know. I know.  I grew up in Minneapolis, so I know what cold is and the chilly 30-some degrees, which it has been here, is considered warm there.  Nevertheless, I’m guessing that a lot of soup is being made across the country right now.

Turkey Stock from your Holiday Turkey…10 minutes hands-on time.

Don’t throw away those turkey bones.   Those turkey bones or chicken bones and giblets that are headed for the trash can are valuable stuff.   They will be a winter lifesaver for making quick soups and stews during a long hard winter!  Yes, unlike our grandmothers, we have chicken stock in cans and shelf stable containers.  Better yet one of my favorite products that is always in my kitchen is Better than Bouillion bases in chicken, beef, vegetable and lobster flavors, which take up less storage space since you mix with water.  But home made stock – sorry nothing can compare.

Chicken Curry stars in Foods of India Cooking Class

How good was our Foods of India Cooking Class?   As I was unpacking near midnight, my sweetie who just arrived home said he’d like to taste our creations, but that he wasn’t that hungry.  Two plates of food later, he declared that this was the most amazing Indian food he had ever tasted! (more…)

Chicken with Oranges, Leeks and Olives – Dinner in a Flash!

Chicken with Oranges, Leeks & Olives

Our 30-Minute Meals Cooking Class accidentally took on an Italian flair.  Maybe its the fresh fennel and oranges growing outside my door that are at their peak in March…or could it be my love of Italian cuisine or the fact that I now work for La Cucina Italiana magazine.  Years ago when I worked for McCall’s magazine, I discovered this recipe for Chicken with Oranges, Leeks and Olives in the McCall’s Best One-Dish Meals cookbook.

Patrice Rushen and Friends…and Food – Lots of It

Patrice Rushen and Friends

Patrice Rushen and Friends

May 14 has been in my head for awhile – more than a date, it was a deadline.  I needed to come up with a plan to serve 100 people…food that they would be wowed by and could be eaten in a FLASH.  Because the real star of the Faithfully Jazz evening was Patrice Rushen, jazz great, Hollywood Bowl performer, and her amazing musician friends who wowed the audience with their jazzy selections on the stage at Holy Nativity.  This was a fundraiser and so it required people to spend money to make it successful…money to hear Patrice Rushen, money to eat my food, money for the many silent auction items that were donated and so on.   In other words, it had to be really good, but cost very little!!

One-Dish Meals Cooking Class A Success!

We sliced and we diced. We stirred and we stir-fried. We skewered and we sizzled.   And then we ate and ate and drank some nice wine.    All the teams cooked such beautiful and delicious dishes at our Quick One-Dish Meals Cooking Class.  OK, they weren’t so quick, but with a smaller home audience and a second try at it, these meals will come together in 30 minutes or less.  (more…)
