Why lemon and citronella grasses may be just the mosquito-fighting balm you need

“About a month ago I read that lemon grass is a great deterrent for mosquitoes. Well, I have checked every big box store, called all the local nurseries and have not been able to find any. I would like to know if this plant really works against mosquitoes since we’ve had such a problem the last two years with these little ankle-biters. The thought of fragrant lemon scent is so appealing to me. Is there any chance of finding lemon grass to your knowledge or is it not in season right now? I sure h...

Recipes: 3 dishes you can make for Mom on Mother’s Day

Surprise Mom with an easy-to-make Mother’s Day treat. Rather than a feast, a simple Mother’s Day dish can be a tasty tribute to honor Mom. No need to sign up for a quickie course at the Cordon Bleu cooking school. Families with little culinary experience but good intentions can cook an edible gift. Before the pandemic challenges hit, I might have suggested gifting an entire home-cooked meal, but under current circumstances, I think one lovely, heartfelt dish would be greatly appreciated. If you ...

Comment on blue sky bran muffins by Melissa

These are lovely! I used kefir and raspberries/blueberries with vanilla extract and orange zest. I put in a generous 1/4 cup of brown sugar because I was concerned they wouldn’t be sweet enough, but I don’t think that was necessary; next time I’ll dial it down.

Comment on potato kugel by Melissa

In reply to Kevin Putnam. I made this in muffin tins because I needed a K4P lunch that could be eaten cold to send with my four-year-old during her mini-camp this week while regular school is off. Planning to pack 1 kugel “muffin” with sour cream, a hard-boiled egg, string cheese, and some veggies with dip. Anyway, I followed the ingredients as written. I added oil to each muffin well/cup (no liners) and put in the preheated oven for about 5 minutes, until I heard the oil start sizzling and popp...

Recipes: These sides dishes will pair perfectly with your Easter ham

At my house, the entrée for our Easter feast is set in stone. A behemoth honey-crusted ham fills our holiday platter. I’m lukewarm on my admiration for that cured hog leg, but it fills my ham-loving husband’s heart with joy. He loves lamb, but because it is a recurring dinner theme throughout the year, he holds his once-a-year ham in high regard. His eyes light up as he cuts it off the bone and arranges it on the serving dish. Sometimes I can hear him quietly humming a tune. I concentrate on sid...

Comment on my favorite brownies by Melissa

This is my “go to” brownie recipe. Not that I need to improve a perfect recipe, but I love to push the envelope. Last night I added 1 tablespoon of malted milk powder and 1 teaspoon of Maldon sea salt. They were even more delicious than usual!

Recipes: Strawberries are coming into season and here’s what you can make with them

This time of year, a drive along roads in Southern California’s coastal region can be a mouthwatering experience, as deep green strawberry fields dot with ripening fruit. They can tempt passersby, fueling sweet-tooth cravings. Robert Schueller, public relations director at Melissa’s Produce, the largest supplier of variety produce in the U.S, told me that although strawberries are grown year round, March through early June is the peak of California’s season. Schueller explained that increased av...
