Every year, I make the same mistake. Every year, I resolve to correct it. Every year, I miss the mark. I recognize my mistake in early October. That’s when I notice the pumpkins growing on the parking lot side of the Dish restaurant. We go inside Dish for lunch. That’s when I notice new items on the menu. Maybe a pumpkin souffle or a pumpkin tart. Maybe a pumpkin bread or a pumpkin soup. But by then, it’s too late. By the time the pumpkins appear at the Dish restaurant on Foothill Boulevard in La Cañada Flintridge, it’s too late.

Dining with Duvall By Lynn Duvall Earlier this month I went to an auction where the audience could only imagine how the items up for bidding might perform later this spring. The Los Angeles Rose Society held their annual fund-raiser in Van de Kamp Hall at Descanso Gardens on a sunny Sunday afternoon. In a fast-paced session, Bob Martin auctioned off around 150 rose bushes. Members of the society donated plants from their own gardens, supplemented by gifts from Weeks Roses and San Gabriel Nursery.

Surrounding families' favorite women with fine food and millions of flowers on Mother's Day weekend has become a happy tradition during Descanso Gardens' Spring Festival of Flowers. Roses, geraniums, music and elegant brunches will be part of the celebration at the Gardens both Saturday and Sunday, May 8 and 9. Sumptuous brunches by Patina will be served amid acres of roses, with seatings at 9 a.m., 10 a.m. and noon both days. On Sunday, Carol Tatum will entertain with harp music from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Under the Oaks Theater.

In the 1950s, owners of a dude ranch in Southern California came up with a new salad dressing to serve their guests. They called it ranch dressing and you know the rest of the story. Today it’s an empire, and pretty much anything that’s not nailed down has been dipped in it and consumed. I recently saw teenagers at an eatery here on Foothill Boulevard dipping pizza into ranch dressing. Having just written that, you may be expecting an article about the fat content of the aforementioned snack, but I have bigger ranch-dipped fish to fry. Let’s say the average Joe will put about four tablespoons of ranch dressing on a salad — the specially-designed wide mouth bottle is difficult to stop pouring, but we’ll assume it stops at 4 tablespoons and quantify that serving.

Lynn Duvall Even though my children are no longer small, they still expect to come home before Easter to find dozens of hard-boiled eggs and the familiar decoration supplies ready for their annual egg dye spree. We're not particularly loyal to one brand of egg dye. We have experimented over the years with various types of dye, including tubes of color which I thought might be less messy than the tablets, but in the end the favorite is usually a tablet product from PAAS. Every year PAAS sells more than 10 million dye kits, which Americans use to color almost 180 million eggs.

Dining with Duvall By Lynn Duvall I've never been clear on the differences between a sweet potato and a yam. I know the yam is a variety of sweet potato, that it's orange inside and doesn't have a sweet taste. My mom told me the two were interchangeable in recipes. That turns out to be poor advice. When I researched the topic, I discovered that I was woefully ignorant on the subject. Maybe you'd like to digest a few facts that are new to you, too? Sweet potatoes are native to the Americas.

California's gray winter skies play havoc with my mood. When I wake up without sunshine, I tend to feel bleak, low in spirit and energy. My best friend just loves winter rain. She tells me how lovely it is to curl up with a book by a cozy fire with the sound of rain outside. I tell her, "righty-ho for you, miserable for me." Winter meals can help lift the spirits with comfort-style food or bright, cheery fruit salad combinations. Today's recipes were chosen for their mood-lifting characteristics.

Dining with Duvall by Lynn Duvall My computer is in the hospital undergoing major surgery, allowing me some unexpected leisure time to tackle tasks like reviewing my new recipe files. I uncovered a raft of summer meal suggestions I'd like to share with you. Next, week we'll visit a charming local family. The following week we'll go to a jewelry making party. This week, we'll put on our aprons and cook. Aug. 3 was National Watermelon Day. The watermelon originated in Africa.

by Jacqueline Chen In his forthcoming book, "The Year I Ate My Yard", La Cañada native Tony Kienitz is referred to as a "vegetablarian," a title he invented to describe his professional affiliation. From carrots to cabbage, chives to chickweed, Kienitz has spent most of the last decade teaching about and building organic vegetable gardens in homes, orchards, even vineyards all over Southern California. Unlike many backyard farms, aesthetics is emphasized in his residential plots; he mixes flowers and herbs with the vegetables, and sometimes includes inedibles.
