    Picture it: 2008, a chilly March night in the neon desert that is Las Vegas.  I was sent to Sin City to help open a bookstore and was there almost a month.  Being away from home can be loads of fun, but eating out for every meal can become tedious.  This particular night in March, at dinner time we were confronted with the Continue Reading...

    0
    Just like people, food when it is simple and honest and doesn’t pretened to be something it’s not is quite a beautiful thing.

    0
    Great Harvest South Pasadena serves sandwiches, cereals, salads, soups, and an assortment of pastries. Try the cinnamon buns. For many people this Lenten season, giving up carbs is one way to show restraint. I’m not one of those people. Bread, especially good, homemade multigrain, wheat bread, is my downfall.

    0
    Trying to desperately escape the 102 degree heat outside, I drove up and down Valley Boulevard in Alhambra this afternoon, as I sometimes do, looking inside restaurant windows (and for air conditioning) to find a new place to eat. I say “sometimes” as many restaurants in my neighborhood have either Chinese or Vietnamese characters and since I don’t unfortunately read either language Continue Reading...
