The First Celebrity Chefs

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 07:43:48 -0600

Celebrity chefs are nothing new. Before TV and internet, foodies heard about them, bought their cookbooks or traveled to their restaurants, and make no mistake, they basked in their fame as they served up original dishes. Some lucky ones cooked for famous people and royalty, where presumably their food budgets were unlimited; others had their own restaurants and could impress their diners with great flourish and fanfare. The names may not be familiar, but in their day they reigned.

Gum It Up

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 08:52:25 -0600

Colorful gumballs and sticky bubble gum have fascinated kids for decades. Who doesn't remember learning how to make a bubble, the bigger the better. Or getting scolded in school for secretly chewing. Despite the sometime inconvenience, we loved it, and moms found it easier to give in to gum than candy. Before sugar-free had been created, several trips to the dentist could put a damper on it for Boomers, but we still savor that first delicious burst of flavor and sweetness, which has a magic all its own. Never mind what's in it, we chew up a storm worldwide. And it's not just for kids.

Famous Foods for Famous People

Thu, 08 Feb 2018 08:13:04 -0600

We eat them without a thought to their origin, they're so deeply entrenched in our cuisine. However, next time you dig into a Caesar salad, remember it wasn't Emperor Julius who created it. Popular dishes have been named after famous people or places throughout history, which doesn't seem to happen much anymore. Yes, we all know Toll House cookies, along with other timeless favorites, but perhaps this might become trendy again with our fascination and limitless thirst for celebrity. Some suggestions might include Kale Kardashian, Swift Yogurt (low-fat) or Bananas Bieber. Maybe even Brad Olive Pitts. That being said, let's identify some of those legendary dishes.

Gourmet Cooking: 'Some Assembly Required'

Mon, 05 Feb 2018 09:20:24 -0600

In the past two decades, with the advent of TV food channels and internet, gourmet cooking has emerged as a favorite entertainment and passion. We've always loved eating, but now we could acquire recipes online, watch our favorite food shows on TV, and those glorious meals were no longer shrouded in mystery. And the chefs. How we envy their well-stocked kitchens, we long to sit at their beautifully appointed dinner tables, and we vicariously savor every aromatic sip of those fine wines in crystal goblets, right along with them. Cooking competitions and bake-offs give us chills. But looming over the entire experience, casting a pall over those gourmet fantasies, is a crushing realization. If we ever hope to re-create comparable meals we must face the cold cruel truth: "some assembly required."

Bad Food Matters

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 08:55:21 -0600

We can't all be gourmet cooks or diners. We love to watch the wizardry of TV chefs and fantasize about a dinner invitation. We aspire to make some changes in our kitchens and emulate our favorite cookbook authors--someday. We even buy hundreds of dollars' worth of gadgets and cookware. But in reality, most Americans prefer their foods fast, packaged or frozen (and inexpensive). We are a country of convenience foods, and there is no shortage to fill that need. Microwaves can produce a full meal in less than 15 minutes, and time is of the essence when you're hungry, tired and headachy from a long commute home. Who needs ovens? Latchkey children can forage in the cupboards and find a snack when mom isn't home, happily munching away in front of a video game (and you can bet it's not celery or carrots). Restaurants multiply faster than we can keep up, providing a variety of choices and prices. So let's shelve those celebrity chefs, forget the sham and pretense that we all dine on healthy, home cooked foods and admit it: bad food matters.

Those Great Pumpkins

Fri, 26 Jan 2018 08:23:36 -0600

What would Autumn be without pumpkins: Jack-o-lanterns, pumpkin pie, muffins, roasted seeds, and colorful table and outdoor decorations.

They're all-American, all right, but where did they start?

I'm In Leftover Heaven

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 09:20:07 -0600

I do confess that I enjoy the holiday seasons just like everybody else. One of the main ingredients I enjoy more than anything else is the holiday cuisine. At our house, I must duly confess, it is the best. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is the cooking queen when it comes to all of this holiday food. She does a wonderful job and my job is simply to consume as much of it as I possibly can. We both manage our jobs quite professionally!

We like it plain, flavored, blended and fruit-on-the-bottom, low-fat, fat-free and Greek style, We relish it frozen, swirled on a cone or cup, as we flock to shops that feature multiple flavors daily, including dozens of sugary and nutty toppings and syrups. Over the past 30 years, it has diversified greatly and now appeals to mainstream palettes, without the sour taste of its original form. With hundreds of products to choose from, there's a yogurt for just about everyone.
