All-stars of brunch

posted: 05/13/2015 2:02 a.m. Discuss

For this cook, the real star of the brunch table -- and it's almost always brunch, not the evening meal that suits us this time of year -- is the simple egg.

Front burner: Pecans in the guac rock the taste buds

posted: 05/13/2015 2 a.m. Discuss

Last week for Cinco de Mayo my husband I shared a very low-key dinner at home. Our menu consisted of bean and cheese enchiladas, guacamole and entirely too strong margaritas.

posted: 05/13/2015 1:59 a.m. Discuss

If chopping onions sends you running for a box of tissues, wearing a Mastrad's Onion Mask may help. The goggles have a foam seal to block the tear-inducing sulfur compounds from reaching your eyes, while the anti-fog lenses and wrap around design allow for a full-view of the work area.

Italian salad dressing recipe replete with fresh elements

posted: 05/13/2015 1:56 a.m. Discuss

What do you think are the most popular recipe requests we get? No, not fried chicken or layer cake or, sorry, kale salad. They're for salad dressing. Maybe because so many people are oddly perplexed by the stuff, or because we all want another basic recipe -- one with fresh ingredients -- to put into our repertoires. So here you are, a request from Herbert Selwyn from Encino, Calif., who asks, "Could you obtain for us the recipe for the Italian house dressing from Guido's in West Los Angeles?" Guido's was happy to share.

Uncorked: Season the reason for reds or whites

posted: 05/13/2015 1:54 a.m. Discuss

I'm asked the question a lot: "Are you a red or white wine drinker?" Of course I drink both, but as the weather warms, I admit to preferring white for everyday drinking.

Grapes sweeten tenderloin

posted: 05/13/2015 1:54 a.m. Discuss

Pork and fruit is one of those classic Fred-and-Ginger, peanut-butter-and-jelly combinations. It makes perfect sense, as the sweetness of the fruit brings out the succulence of the meat and enhances its subtly rich, earthy flavor.

Cooking with diabetes: Try stuffing chicken with cuts from deli

posted: 05/13/2015 1:52 a.m. Discuss

When looking for different ways to prepare chicken breasts, stuffing them with cheese and deli meats is a great option. Chicken breasts are pounded thin (or you can slice them in half horizontally), and then a slice each of ham and cheese is placed on top. The chicken is rolled up and secured with wooden picks. Once rolled, they are typically dredged in flour, dipped in egg and then rolled in breadcrumbs and pan-fried.

Happy birthday. Announce your goals. Once you commit, there is no going back -- your friends will keep you accountable. June brings a contract. July has you leading the group. August shows you as a champion of your family.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I own a small business that hires a lot of young people, but I'm frustrated because I can't find very many who are reliable and actually want to work. Doesn't the Bible say we're not supposed to be lazy?

Food: A nutty way to make guacamole

posted: 05/12/2015 11 a.m. Discuss

At first adding chopped roasted pecans to guacamole sounded a bit, um, nuts to Food editor Kelly Brant.
