A pound of almonds, a pound of sugar, a pound of butter and a pound of chocolate are all it takes to create the most incredible treat you can possibly make for your friends this holiday season. Who knew you’d be getting a candy-making lesson today? It’s my way of avoiding talking about the Chapter 11 proceedings intiated this week by the Tribune, who owns the L.A. Times, who in turn owns, well, your favorite (I hope) community newspaper. Really, we’re fine.

Back by popular demand — and because I am in the mood to change things up in this corner today — is a repeat lesson in making English toffee from a recipe handed down from my grandmother to my mother, and then to me. I ran the directions at this time last year, the day after we learned Tribune Company, which counts the Valley Sun among its holdings, had filed for bankruptcy. Since chocolate has an exquisite property that helps smooth out life’s sharp edges, it seemed reasonable then to talk candy-making instead of ruminating on the perilous business of news publishing.

Lynn Duvall As I entered the hall of Polly Allen's La Cañada home, I could hear laughter and chatter coming from the next room, where 11 members of the La Cañada Quilters had gathered for their weekly quilting bee. Conversation paused for introductions, and then the ladies began to chat again, talking swiftly as their nimble fingers whipped threaded needles through squares of cloth. In 1970, Polly Allen was invited to join a small group of quilters formed by the owner of a local fabric store.

Ah, the "olden days," a time when life was simpler, even food was simpler. We ate less processed, sweetened food, and sugar was a rare treat. Just before the turn of this century, the average American consumed about five pounds of sugar per year. Cut to today, you'll find sugar in cereal, ketchup, bread, crackers, salad dressings, sauces and fast foods — and that five pounds per year has multiplied to 135 pounds consumed each year! Back in those olden days, there were no Krispy Kreme doughnuts (10 grams of sugar)

Michael Pollan is one of my heroes. I've quoted him in many of my columns and been helping him carry the flag for years touting the benefits of eating a whole foods diet. And the benefits are many; a streamlined torso, reduced inflammation, expedited recovery and more energy. In his new book, "Food Rules," he offers 64 ways to eat food. He expands on his advice, Eat food, not too much, mostly plants in a lively way. We know plant that based foods offer the body necessary nutrients in a bio-available form.

The kids will vote for Disneyland every time but if you want to try something different this year try stopping at the Seven Sycamores Ranch on your way up or down the San Joaquin Valley. It’s a fun destination that will show your youngsters a little about farm life and help them understand the importance of California’s agriculture. Agri-tourism is what they call it — the blending of tourism with California’s vast farmlands and orchards to offer city folk an up-close view of how an orange, for example, gets from the tree to your dining room table.

Lynn Duvall Poking about in my computer photo albums, I came across a shot of an ice sculpture --- a Cinderella coach that graced an appetizer table at Lisa Collyer's wedding reception, three years ago. At the time of their marriage, Lisa and her husband Matt Howell were students at BYU in Idaho. I wondered how they were doing now. Turns out Lisa and Matt are at home in La Cañada, which would be beyond the means of most young couples, but their rent is modest because the house is awaiting reconstruction.

The other day while I was grocery shopping, a gentleman tapped me on the shoulder and asked, "Since I'm not likely to make too many changes, what's the one food that will give me the most bang for my buck? Can you give it to me in a nutshell?" I'm smiling, knowing that's exactly where it comes from — a nutshell. An almond shell, to be exact. I was glad that he was open to suggestion and equally glad to share one of my top favorite nutritional powerhouse foods, almonds. Researchers at Loma Linda University reported that you could improve your diet on many levels just by adding almonds.
