Valley View by Fereva While La Cañada pals complain in an annoyed yet very civilized way about the Southland's bizarre soggy spell, I find myself retrogressing into a more primal mode. I'm just plain cranky, because being a native of Northern California ... well shoot, I coulda' stayed there and enjoyed plenty of "weather." But back to biology. My primitive self craves the comfort basics: hot baths, hot meals and well... almost anything that warms the corpus. Consistent sunshine would be a nice start.

Most nights, I drive my car up and down Foothill Boulevard in La Cañada Flintridge, sucked into a dilemma. I am not alone. Miss Audrey Hepburn, our rescue dog, relaxes in the passenger seat. Sprouts or Trader Joe's? Trader Joe's or Sprouts? Ever since the newest Sprouts grocery opened in La Cañada, I can never decide where to buy cheese. Most nights, Foothill Boulevard is empty. “Most likely, everyone is at the movie theater watching 'The Hunger Games,'” I say to Miss Hepburn.

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 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.
