Beef Tartare

Often one grows up not fully realizing that some of the things one ate with some regularity might be considered delicacies by others, and even served in the finest, high-dollar restaurants at ridiculously, high prices! Imagine my surprise when I found myself sitting at a sidewalk café in Paris realizing that the 25-dollar dish I…

Prunella Cake

I thought about this cake the other day and remembered how much I enjoyed it, but I wasn’t expecting the interesting history I would uncover when I looked into it. My mother loved this cake and baked it often. It must have been the rage in the mid-‘60s and perhaps through the mid-‘70s, but not…

Ladybird’s Wheaties Cookies

Breakfast was our first sit-down meal of the day for my family. I am not sure it still commands such attention today in most people’s busy lives. I would venture that many kids are now sent off to school with none, or something that can be eaten on the run or picked up at the…

Pineapple Lamb Burgers

I wonder how many families still prepare lamb for dinner. We did not have it often, although my dad had kept a flock of sheep (about 150) on our ranch. When I was little, he decided to give the cattle to his daughters and the sheep to me and my brother, Jarvis. We assumed the…

This dish goes great with extra mangoes and leftover cooked rice. The ingredients are short, and it takes…

Russet potatoes are great for potato wedges, mashed potatoes, or even French fries. But these potatoes are a bit larger and thicker, so we…
