In the chips

posted: 09/13/2017 1:59 a.m. Discuss

Scissor open a snack-size bag of corn chips, spoon in chili, cheese and sour cream and you have a walking taco, aka Frito Pie. The birthplace of this personal meal in a bag is unclear -- possibly Mexico, Texas or even a Santa Fe five-and-dime lunch counter. Regardless, Frito Pie has become part of America's culinary vernacular. Quite simply, this is a joyous food delivery system.

Raw is a brilliant state for lettuce, for talent, for truth. Not so much for mushroom.

Uncorked: Washington wines an unlikely success

posted: 09/13/2017 1:52 a.m. Discuss

If you think of the most inhospitable or unlikely vineyard sites in the world, the state of Washington may not come to mind. There are two dramatically different landscapes in Washington. There's the one most of us think of when we think of the Pacific Northwest -- cool, damp and foggy. But most of Washington's most exceptional vineyards are located in the other one -- amid dry mountain air, scarcely populated and barren ridges in the Columbia River basin.

Chicken dish is peachy, wherever sugar lands

posted: 09/13/2017 1:51 a.m. Discuss

An interesting thing happened on the way to delivering this recipe. It's a one-pan dish that fuses a few spices and brown sugar with ripe peaches and that old weeknight standby -- boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Prep work is minimal: Blanch the peaches, peel and slice them. Pound the chicken to an even thickness. Cut a lemon in half.

DEAR HELOISE: You had a recipe for a no-mix cherry-pineapple nut cake that my husband was wild about. I haven't made it in a while, so I'm not sure what all the ingredients are or the amount of butter to use. Please reprint this wonderful recipe so I can make it for my wonderful guy.

Happy birthday. If this year were a musical score, it would have the soaring melodies of a John Williams action/adventure piece. You'll make friends who up your game. The financial infusion next month will be well-invested in education or travel. The end of the year will bring a merging of families. May is the most romantic month.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I'd like to be a real Christian, but I don't think I could make it. I know how weak I am, and I don't think I could ever measure up. I've seen a lot of hypocrites, and I don't want to be like them.
