My Happiest Thanksgiving Memory, Even Though ... One Thanksgiving I drove to Ventura to share the feast with friends. First up was a molded salad with cranberries and nuts. I hate wet, soggy nuts. I was pushing them around my plate when our hostess leaned over to tell me, "You'll never guess the secret ingredient in the salad." After I admitted I wouldn't, she whispered, "Dr. Pepper." Things went downhill from there. We didn't even have pie for dessert. While fiddling with my purse, I somehow took a photo of my plate during the meal.

I am a sucker for free food. And this past weekend was very tasty. I went to three places where the opportunity for free food presented itself. I sometimes joke that the only reason I go to the events I am invited to is because of the free food. The first event I photographed was the Ramadan potluck held at the La Cañada Community Center on Friday night hosted by the Islamic Congregation of La Cañada Flintridge. The place was packed, and so was the food table. Everything from traditional dishes to In ’n’ Out burgers was served.

Summer’s coming! Time to leave the bubble — to eat. 1. Tonight only, dine at Provecho, 800 Wilshire Blvd, L.A. 90017, and say “Cheers! To Andrew.” The owner will donate 10% of your bill to cancer research. Provecho specializes in light, airy nouvelle Mexican cuisine. Try the Provecho Cobb (tomato, avocado, grilled corn, jalapeño vinegarette) or the sopes and tacos. This food is not heavy. Tonight at the Remedy Lounge next door, there’s cocktails and appetizers at the Cheers!

A blue-eyed dog greeted me as I walked up the long, narrow path to the Sparr Heights home of Bill and Rita Even. "Everyone in the neighborhood knows Jodi," said Rita, referring to her Australian shepherd. "Jodi and Bill are inseparable." Bill was on his way out to walk Jodi, but he stopped for a minute to point out a few features of the house. He believes that the 1930s house was set behind a larger home. Later, when the lot was divided, a porch and foyer were added to the cozy cottage.

When I think about Roy Choi, I miss my friend, Laura Canales. Choi is the Korean-American, Los Angeles chef who reinvented the food truck with his gourmet Kogi BBQ Korean taco trucks. He is the author of “L.A. Son,” a thoughtful cookbook/autobiography. Laura was a La Cañada Flintridge resident, past president of the Thursday Club and gourmet home-fusion chef. As a Greek American, Laura knew feta, tiropitakia and mint like the back of her hand. When she married into the Canales family, her culinary repertoire skyrocketed.

D eep dish, thin crust, Napolese — you might think you have sampled all the pizza the world has to offer. But La Cañada's newest eatery, Hello Pizza, delivers a pleasant surprise with every slice. The pizzeria, at the northeast corner of Ocean View and Foothill boulevards, is the brainchild of South Korea native Brandon Tak. Opened last month, it boasts fresh, healthy ingredients not often associated with the standard American pie. Customers can choose between original and whole wheat crusts, the latter of which lends a dynamic flavor to the pizza, Tak said.

Dining with Duvall by Lynn Duvall I walked up the drive to Deborah Scott's La Cañada home on the first day of spring, admiring the flowers in her front garden. Her house had once been a summer cabin. Later additions turned it into a family home, but the high ceilings and open beams in the living room still set a country tone. Deborah wisely avoided dried flowers and cute duck decor. She turned instead to bold statements in blue and red, complimenting the strong architecture. I admired the oriental rug as I settled into the sofa cushions for a chat.

Dining with Duvall by Lynn Duvall This week, the fat envelope from Pillsbury announcing the call for entries into the 2006 Bake-Off arrived in my mail box. Between the arrival of this year's kit and the one that arrived two years ago, I read a fascinating book about America's cooking contests - "Cookoff: Recipe Fever in America" (Viking Adult 2003) by Amy Sutherland. I reviewed "Cookoff" earlier this year. The book begins with the arrival of the Pillsbury media kit containing details on the bi-annual Bake-Off where the grand prize winner takes home $1,000.
