Eating a healthy diet takes more strategic planning than a junk-food lifestyle. I think most of us want to eat well—we just don’t have time (or so we tell ourselves). Our intentions are good, but when it comes to food preparation, oftentimes we defer to the fast and easy way out. Reminds me of one of my dad’s favorite blurts: “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” I’d say the road to illness and weight gain is paved with the same. We’re more likely to eat well if we can eliminate some of the hassle.

Ten Years Ago Calling the Jet Propulsion Laboratory a “national treasure,” Ed Weiler, then associate administrator for NASA, announced the La Cañada Flintridge facility had received an $8-billion contract extension through 2008. Twenty Years Ago Sheriff's deputies on patrol shot and wounded a man who they said tried to run them over on Foothill Boulevard near Crown Avenue. At the time of the incident the suspect was behind the wheel of a car belonging to a La Cañada Good Samaritan who, shortly before the deputies arrived, had given the suspect a ride to get gas for the truck he'd been driving that ran out of fuel.

More than 770 students enrolled in classes this summer at La Cañada Elementary for grades 1-6 and at La Cañada High School for grades 7 and 8 for summer school classes sponsored by the Assistance League of Flintridge. The five-week program was under the direction of ALF members Polly Allen and Sue Sheedy. Since 1978, Assistance League of Flintridge (ALF) has provided enrichment summer school for La Cañada Flintridge students entering first through eighth grade. Most of the classes are non-academic and are designed to provide creative challenges.

It’s getting bigger and better, but don’t expect to lose the friendly atmosphere or fine dining experience folks have come to expect at Taylor’s Steakhouse. Taylor’s recently celebrated its 12th year in La Cañada and will soon have seating capacity for up to 225, more than three times the capacity of when the restaurant opened Mar. 22, 1996. The restaurant has gone through extensive construction in recent months, including the addition of a structure on the back side to accommodate a food preparation kitchen and an additional restroom, and new dining area and wine room on the west portion of the facility, Taylor’s has been open throughout the rest of the project.

At first, I was a little miffed with Anthony Bourdain's “Los Angeles” episode of his CNN travelogue, “Parts Unknown.” Surely he would cover Descanso Gardens or tea at the Thursday Club? Instead, Bourdain went to Koreatown. Don't get me wrong, as a life-long Angeleno, I'd been to what I thought was Koreatown. Sure, I had driven down Wilshire Boulevard from the La Brea tar pits to downtown. I worked downtown for years. I argued cases at the old mid-Wilshire temporary site of the state court of appeal.

It never occurs to me to go to a bookshop to purchase a cookbook, unless I am giving one as a gift. Because I read cookbooks like others read novels, I would break my budget and my bookcases if I allowed myself the luxury of impulsive cookbook shopping. Instead, I check out cookbooks from the library, read them and occasionally try a few recipes. It is a clear signal to me, when I am renewing a borrowed cookbook for the third or fourth time, that I have found one that is a keeper.

My great uncle Sal was a dirty dog, a ladies’ man, if you get my drift. He was a cavalier poet who could recite verse from Virgil and at the same time take three guys apart in a bar fight. He won the Italian Medal of Honor for bravery in World War I and then pilfered the Allied Commissary, sending supplies to his family in Sicily. That uncle of mine had a strange duality. Salvatore Puglia was always full of advice most of which went in one ear and out the other. But I can still hear him exclaim as he’d labor over a hot stove orchestrating a masterpiece of linguini and squid: “Joey Boy, the way to a woman’s heart is through cooking!
