Adventures in Eating: Chicken Scrapple

This is my swan song. I can hardly believe I have been writing this column for 14 years. Son Paul surprised me by saying, “mom, I’m letting you off the hook. Cousin Leslie (my niece) agreed to be food editor.” This pleased me very much, as Leslie was a journalism major at UCLA and is… read more »

Adventures in Eating: Turkey Tetrazini

By the time most of you read this column, Thanksgiving will have been history. You will have baked (hope­fully) or purchased your cooked tur­key, and some of that good stuff is still in your refrigerator.

Daisy Dell was revamped, given a thorough face lift, and a seating capacity of 17,619 people. Starlit concerts were started, and the Holly­wood Bowl emerged…. read more »

Adventures in Eating: Pâté Petite Princess

Why the versatile pâté has never really caught on in the U.S. is a bit of a mystery to me. It comes in so many variations, dif­fering from province to province, and even from village to village.

Recipe: Crostini Toscano

Adventures in Eating: Crostini Toscano Rosemarie | November 1982 It has been a whole 10 days since our return from Italy, and time to write this column.

Recipe: Shrimp and Egg Curry

Adventures in Eating: Shrimp and Egg Curry Rosemarie | December 1982 Am thoroughly enjoying reading “A Woman of Independent Means”, by Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey.
