Ten thousand blessings for 2012, the year of the Water Dragon. The holiday season is long for our family. We begin with Thanksgiving, a time so special for us I wrote a children’s book about it. Then Christmas arrives, and our daughter comes home for a lengthy visit (soo wonderful), and of course we celebrate the holidays Christmas Eve and Christmas. The Japanese New Year we call Oshogatsu [...]

If your home could make New Year’s resolutions, what would they be? Every year my friends and I always seem to make the same resolutions to lose weight, get out of debt, volunteer more, get fit and learn something new.

I had the perfect pear the other day. There's no other word to describe it. Perfect. It was a Farmer's Market, of course. I'd bought some Bartletts at Ha's Orchard stand. The pears were firm and green, even though they'd been picked after they'd grown to their full, mature size. That was fine with me. Pears are actually better when picked green and allowed to ripen on the counter or in the [...]

This week is one for the history books. It started out with the Fourth of July on Monday, and will wrap up with a royal visit to Sony on July 10 from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (perhaps better known to all those watching their April wedding as Will and Kate). The royals are visiting California during the peak of our strawberry season. I've seen Camarosa joining the Chandler, Seascape, [...]

Today is the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere: the summer solstice. The earth rotates on an axis, meaning that its poles move closer to the sun as summer approaches, and then gradually move away until we reach winter. Midsummer came to Culver City at 10:16 a.m. Pacific Time today. Just as in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, you don't have to look far to see signs [...]

Last week's column featured vinegrette salad dressings and an old-time favorite which is newly trendy again: Green Goddess Dressing. This week, Fresh From the Farm focuses on fruit. We'll still have fresh cherries for a couple more weeks, there's a rainbow assortment of tree-ripened stone fruit which dazzles the eyes and tantalizes the tastebuds, and our stalwart Tehachapi-area orchard [...]
