And the rains came down. The weather people said that it would rain and it did with great gusto. You know me, I just love the rain — guess it’s because I have webbed toes from all those years I lived in Seattle. Most of the folks around town have been complaining that there was just too much of the wet stuff day after day after day. Ohhh, and the snow capping our local mountains was absolutely gorgeous. It has been a very weather dramatic week or so. Just remember these past few weeks next August when it is so hot you can barely move — maybe it will help you cool off. The 2008 Showcase House of Design is once again in La Cañada Flintridge.

Nothing takes the chill off a cold morning like hot foods for breakfast. Looking for some historical tidbits to accompany today's breakfast recipes, I pulled up the Internet browser and found myself engrossed in a fascinating Web site - www.mrbreakfast.com. Mr. Breakfast claims to be the No. 1 expert on breakfast. His alter ego, Eddy Chavey, is a freelance author, speaker and graduate of the Los Angeles New School of Cooking. He's currently at work on a new cookbook, "The Big Book of Breakfast."

Lynn Duvall As a young bride I learned to cook by decoding recipe directions, purchasing ingredients and mastering preparation techniques. Those tasks were daunting enough; I felt no need to experiment. Eventually I built up confidence in the kitchen and began to be more creative, devising my own recipes. I used a basic assortment of seasonings to flavor my dishes. I grew up in a plain food household where oregano was thought to be a bit exotic and a bay leaf added to a stew was considered the secret ingredient.

In honor of their 20th anniversary, on Jan. 20 Goldstein’s Bagel Bakery will sell all bagels (with the exception of cheese bagels) at their 1989 prices — 35 cents each, limit 1 dozen per customer. The story of the bagel is the story of America. In the 1880s, Jewish immigrants brought with them the doughnut-shaped bread product from the shtetls of Eastern Europe. Kraft’s trademark Philadelphia Cream Cheese was first marketed in September of 1880. For the next century, the bagel (with or without lox and cream cheese)

As the year comes to a close, I thought my readers might appreciate reading this prose poem by Judie Apablaza. Judie sent her poem to family and friends this holiday season in lieu of a greeting card. Since she mentions recipes and cider, I felt it would be appropriate to add a recipe for buttery cider. How's Market, at the corner of Glendale Avenue and Glenoaks Boulevard in Glendale, has a big display of Martinelli's sparkling cider with packages of mulling spices for a faster, alternative version of this winter favorite.

I loved Monday's rainstorm. I lived in Seattle for several years, and while there, acquired a rainy day state of mind. However, last week that fair city was snowed-in. Old friends who still live there said their back yard looked like a winter wonderland. They live on one of Seattle's many hills, so they couldn't even get out of their driveway - it was a good thing they stocked up on groceries before the snowflakes started to fall. I hope that Monday's storm brought us some snow in Southland's mountains so the snow bunnies can hit the slopes.

Last month on St. Patrick's Day, the dark gray skies threatened rain and the air was chilly. I parked my car on Honolulu Avenue in Montrose and hurried into the welcome warmth of the Merle Norman Studio. The storeowners Kris Kline and Kim Kelly were busy with customers. I browsed for a while in the sparkling clean, well-lighted shop. A beautifully dressed woman with impeccable grooming asked Kris what eye make-up colors would complement a red outfit. Kris suggested charcoal and black for evening, browns for daytime.
