Recipe: This pasta salad can be a one-bowl meal or a tasty side dish

Pasta salad is an American invention. Vinaigrette coated pasta paired with ingredients such as salami, mozzarella and olives, can be a one-bowl meal or a tasty side dish. America’s Test Kitchen’s version calls for cooking the corkscrew-shaped fusilli pasta until it is a little too soft, reasoning that as it cools it will firm up a little and take on a just-right texture. The salad can be prepared up to three days in advance and stored in the fridge. If making it in advance, add the baby arugula ...

Postal Service to remove collection boxes in L.A., O.C. ahead of potential protests

The U.S. Postal Service has announced plans to temporarily remove 14 blue mail collection boxes in Los Angeles and Orange counties as a safety precaution ahead of potential protests.

Recipes: These 3 dishes bring out the bountiful flavor of chicken thighs

There’s a longstanding debate when it comes to chicken: breasts or thighs, light or dark? We know that white meat has less fat and calories, but it also has less flavor pizzazz. A hundred grams of skinless (roasted) chicken thigh, about 3 1/2 ounces, contains 209 calories and has 10.9 grams of fat. Compare that with the same amount of skinless (roasted) chicken breast at 165 calories and 3.57 grams of fat. In terms of saturated fat, that amount of thigh meat contains 2 grams more than the breast...

Recipe: ‘Greek-ish’ Grain Salad will be a big hit at your next dinner

When I made this Greek-ish Grain Salad last week, my three-person household devoured it with the exception of one serving left behind in the salad bowl. I opted to finish it off instead of eating my portion of pot roast. It’s the concoction of my salad dreams. The green salad mix showcases several traditional Greek salad ingredients: cubed feta and cucumbers, fresh mint, hearts of romaine, olives, and a perky vinaigrette. Delicious indeed, but it’s the add-ons that take it over the top. Farro, a...

Korean grocery store Greenland Market brings flavors of Seoul to Van Nuys

For those of us who have long haunted the streets of Koreatown, finding a Korean market — and a wonderful one at that — at the generally nondescript intersection of Sherman Way and White Oaks Avenue in Van Nuys comes as a surprise, a wonder, and frankly, something of a joy. It’s an oasis of kimchee in a landscape of burgers and tacos. And, as is true at most of our ethnic markets, if you stand still, and listen carefully, you’ll hear nary a word of English. Korean is the language of choice here....

Recipes: Apple desserts are delicious and fill the house with comforting aromas

There’s something about apple desserts that makes them remarkably alluring. The fruit’s sweet-tart personality builds flavors that, in all fairness, are hard to beat this time of year. Plus the smell of cinnamon and other spices are comforting. For the home cook, there is joy in the simplicity of apple-based desserts. Sure, there’s time spent peeling and coring, but it can become a pleasing Zen-like motion with the right background music. When it comes to which apples to use, some varieties are ...

Shakey’s popular Mojo Potatoes go virtual

And it serves a new chicken sandwich and one of Shakey’s favorites, Mojo Potatoes. The sandwich, called the Big Clucker, is a lot like the one launched by Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen that set off a feeding frenzy in the summer of 2019. It costs $6.99 and fea...

Recipe: Brussels sprouts show off their versatility when served with turkey cutlets

Brussels sprouts are a lot more versatile than we often give them credit for. One of my favorite ways to serve them is raw, an approach many cooks overlook. The secret is to slice them into thin ribbons and then toss in flavorful vinaigrette. The easiest way to slice is to first make a shallow trim at the base where it looks tough and perhaps discolored, leaving enough so the leaves stay attached. Then load them higgledy-piggledy on their sides into the tube of a food processer fitted with the s...

Recipes: How to make ‘Spaghetti al Van Nuys’ and other Italian-American dishes

It’s hard to imagine American cuisine without Italian influence. Without pasta. Without spaghetti and meatballs. Without pizza. More than five million Italians immigrated to the United States between 1876 and 1910. At first their regional dishes were looked down on, but in the 1940s their popularity grew, especially in New York where the cuisine eventually entered the realm of fine dining. There’s something about Italian food that’s completely irresistible, whether it’s authentic or an American ...

Here’s how Southern Californians would spend $600 vs. $2,000 stimulus payments

Daniel Jester, his wife and his four young kids have established a new tradition during the coronavirus pandemic: hanging laundry on a series of clothes lines he strung up behind their Riverside home. It’s not a quest to return to simpler times. It’s a necessity after their dryer broke several months ago. And since Jester was laid off in April from his full-time job as a production director for a studio in Los Angeles, money has been too tight to buy a new one. If Congress and President Donald T...
