    This delicious depression era cake calls for just 1 tablespoons of butter. It's also called Poor Man's Cake. It's a good cake for anyone who wants a reduced fat cake, or one that does not contain eggs. If you don't have applesauce on hand you can substitute 2/3 cup of coffee... can't beat that one for economy. I love these old recipes, it's a glimpse into the past, this one was published in the Los Angeles Times, food section about 20 years ago.

    Recipe #424277

    If you like your chili with a kick, this meaty, spicy one has it. The recipe calls for "chili-grind" meat, a cut you can ask your butcher to grind. The restaurant uses Bass ale but feel free to use any ale you like. This is the chili that I make for pot-lucks, in part because it is requested, but also I can be pretty sure it will be consumed before the party is over. The recipe was developed by chef Leonard Schwartz at the 72 Market Street Restaurant in the Venice community of Los Angeles, California. The restaurant is no longer there but many of their recipes live on in print. For example, you can find the restaurant's meat loaf recipe in the New Basics Cookbook by Rosso and Lukins. This chili recipe was published in the Los Angeles Times.

    I had this potato salad at a small Armenian deli in Glendale. I was impressed by how simple but beautiful and delicious it is. So, I decided to try to duplicate the salad at home.

    Recipe #302880

    Here in the southwest U.S. we rarely think of using avocados as a dessert, even though the avocado pear is a fruit. In other parts of the world, ranging from Indonesia to Brazil these fruits are made into desserts and sweet beverages. Now that my fuerte avocado is bearing fruit, I'm planning lots of avocado desserts. Note: the avocado leaves can be dried, ground into a powder and used as a spice. It has an anise taste which some Mexican recipes call for. Also, if you can find fuerte avocados, they are creamier than Hass and make a better dessert. This recipe was adapted from: The Africa cookbook, Tastes of a Continent, by Jessica B. Harris

    Recipe #274646

    This dish is usually made very hot in Bhutan, however when I make it it's with jalapenos and fewer chilies. Adjust to your own taste.

This unusual soup-like curry is rich and warming on a cool day. Recipe adapted from the book, "Mangoes and Curry Leaves " by the team of Alford and Duguid.

    Bullock's Department Stores were Los Angeles icons that were around since 1907 when the first store opened, until the end of the century when the entire chain of stores had been sold. Their tea rooms featured good food, elegant decor and great fashion shows. This is a nostalgia recipe, a reminder from those good old days. The prized recipe was provided to the Los Angeles Times by the family of Hazel Wilson, head baker at Bullock's Pasadena. The recipe calls for one 9-inch baked pie shell, either purchased or one made in advance. The preparation here is for the pie filling with a meringue topping baked just long enough singe the meringue.

    Bullock's Tea Room was noted for their delicious and very popular popovers. They are easy to make. The secret is to place the custard cups far apart enough on the baking sheet so that all sides of each popover get the same blast of heat needed to rise evenly. Muffin tins don't work well with popovers. This recipe makes a high-rising puffy popover, that can be served at any meal of the day.

    Another nostalgia recipe, this dish was popular at Bullock's Westwood Village, a store that opened in 1932 as a suburban store; but is now surrounded by high rise buildings. It had been my favorite store because it was close by. I can remember happy times shopping with friends, then having lunch in the tea room while watching the fashion show. Recipe submitted to the Los Angeles Times by Louise De Vries, food and beverage director at the department store's Tea Room.

    Recipe #304563

    The word "Bullocks" without an apostrophe was used only in the name of the Wilshire store, the most famous and popular of them all. Here you would find a line of people waiting for tables reaching from the tea room to the elevators. In 1983 customers would pay $100. for Easter baskets and order a half dozen. When they offered a Champagne and caviar tasting at $125.a head in '83 they packed the room. The Orange Roll recipe was developed at this store.
