Making a Pie Doesn't Have to be a Killjoy I read cookbooks the way others read a volume of poems or short stories. A good recipe has rhythm and style. The simpler the recipe, the more the ingredients must be perfectly balanced. It is easy to hide a few mistakes when you're working with 12 ingredients, making a stew or soup, but vegetables and salads, in particular, require exactness. Maya Angelou produced a cookbook last year at the urging of her friend, Oprah Winfrey, that is a glorious celebration of her life.

Lynn Duvall When Bistro Verdu opened its doors in Montrose almost four years ago, the Spanish and French-influenced restaurant had no liquor license. Customers brought their own wine until the owner-chef Michael Ruiz's application for a license was approved. Faced with the task of designing a good wine list, he enlisted the help of wine consultant Jeff Zimmitti. Today the two men are neighbors on Verdugo Road. At Bistro Verdu, Michael continues to build a loyal customer base.

What's on your holiday menu? It seems holiday cooking just keeps getting richer. But there is a way to cook delicious food that will delight your friends and family without the worry of added pounds that make the season even more stressful. Let's remind ourselves of what we are dealing with. Calorie counting helps us quantify food. Calories don't specifically tell us what's in the food, but they give us an idea of what it might take to burn off that food. For example, if one cup of turkey stuffing has 360 calories and it's alongside a six-ounce serving of turkey at 340 calories, we're already up to 700 calories.

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.

Dining With Duvall By Lynn Duvall A few childish tendencies crept into the traits I passed along to my offspring. If there's a button, we must push it to see what happens. If a spritzer bottle is within reach, we spritz. We're probably the only family in America who likes to be sprayed with perfume in a department store. When my daughter Gretchen and I stepped inside Babycakes on Foothill Boulevard in La Cañada, we accepted the friendly greeting of English bulldog Maddy, and then made a beeline to the aromatherapy sample bottles by California Baby.

Lynn Duvall A belly dance craze hit the United States with the arrival of dance troupes to the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. Although dancers from African and Middle Eastern countries performed national versions of the ancient dance, it was the Egyptian troupe that captured fairgoers’ attention. Swiveling hips, unhampered by corsets, shocked the Victorian sensibilities of the time and influenced the nation to regard belly dancers as women of loose morals. Every 20 years, another form of belly dancing hits the shores of America.

Wine and Food Pair in Marriage When I heard from Clyde Hemphill that his son was a catering cook and his daughter-in-law worked as a sommelier, I thought to myself, "What a perfect pairing." Clyde's son Jeff was introduced to his future wife Leslie Burns by wine shop owner Bill Drury at a birthday party for Jeff. In their cozy Sierra Madre apartment, the couple proudly displays an empty three-liter bottle of wine converted into a very pretty lamp. "Bill saved the bottle from the party where we met, had it made into a lamp and gave it to us for a wedding present."

We have had a wild weather ride this April, and hopefully it will be going out like a lamb. I know that this particular proverb of coming in like a lion and going out like a lamb usually refers to March, but it has been very fitting for us this month. It seems that weather rhymes have been around for a very long time. The rhyme about April showers bringing May flowers is attributed to a British gentleman named Thomas Tusser, who put together a collection of weather sayings in 1557 that he called “A Hundred Good Points of Husbandry.
