    Field of Greens

    I spent my first 30 years in tomato hell. The only tomatoes I remember were a dull combination of pale skin, bland flavor and mealy texture. I've since learned about the wonderful effects of vine ripening. I've also learned that it takes a good fa...

    Pomme Reader

    A rose by any other name might be called an apple. That's right; apples are in the rose family. So are pears, cherries, apricots, peaches, plums, strawberries and raspberries. Who knew? Apples, unlike their brethren, are winter's fruit. Most variet...

    Taco Bender

    I moved to the Valley last February from Austin, Texas -- a land of magical tacos, a taco Narnia. The tacos, which I dream about nearly every night, were stuffed with tender steak or white-meat chicken. They were marinated in flavorful sauces, wi...

    Food FX

    Don't hate me because my food is beautiful. It just turns out that way. It looked good before I went to culinary school. I never just throw food on a plate. And I can't arrange food on any old plate. Joan Crawford hated wire clothes hangers; I hate...

    Hive and Seek

    Honey was the only sweetener available for most of man's history. It was difficult and often dangerous to obtain. Honey poachers were often put to death. Our love for sweets has endured. Despite a wide choice of sweeteners on the market, honey rema...

    Season's Eatings

    For many years, my family celebrated the holidays by ourselves. All the major groups of relatives were located 38 hours away by car so we rarely saw them. Most of our interactions with cousins and aunts and uncles took place via the U.S. Postal Servi...

    Dulce Treat

    Why does it seem like every out-of-town guest wants to drive to Mexico? "Because it's so close," they plead. They've obviously never endured that stretch of I-10 between Phoenix and Tucson. If you've lived in Phoenix long enough, you've probably be...

    Nut Case

    Growing up in Arizona, I've never had a strong sense of season. For starters, we only have two: hot and warm. Being a seasonal dyslexic, I relied on artificial clues to tell when the seasons were changing. As spring approached, the population dwind...

    Gimmick Shelter

    A barren island in the San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz was from 1933 to 1963 the site of the notorious federal prison known by its residents as "The Rock" and famous for its inescapability. Rain forests, found around the world near the Equator, are wet j...
