    In it's 59 years as a Hollywood celebrity hangout, Chasen's had ample time to develop recipes for special clients. However, Shirly Temple was one of only two people who had a recipe from Chasen's named for her. The story behind the drink is that Shirley, at the height of her fame as a child star, came to the restaurant with her parents, who were having a before-dinner cocktail. Shirley wanted one of her own, so the bartender concocted this one for her. Non-alcholic cocktails have been named "Shirly Temples" ever since. This drink is served in a highball glass with ice, and garnished to look like a cocktail; and served with a straw. Other sodas can be substituted, such as a lemon-lime soda. Information from the archives of the Los Angeles Library.

    Recipe #291135

    This is an adaptation of a recipe from the Upper Crust Bakery, in Cambria Pines, California; which is located just off the Central California Coast, near Hearst Castle. I visited the bakery several years ago, and had these bran muffins. They are the best I've tasted and are healthful to boot. There were so many requests that the recipe was published in the local newspaper. Don't be too put off by the long list of ingredients; the batter can be kept refrigerated for about a week before you bake them; and it does make 24 muffins. Also they freeze well. The're worth the extra effort for a special occasion.

    Recipe #109500

    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. I hope you like my version. I call the dressing "Armenian Salsa" because it's a great topping for lots of other things.

    Recipe #108933

    This dish starts out as classic chili rellenos, with fresh poblano chiles, roasted, peeled and stuffed. However, instead of frying the chilies, they are nestled into a bed of rice, a sauce is poured over; and they are baked. This is a good make-ahead dish, to assemble the evening before, and then just bake it 25 minutes before you are ready to serve it. A note about the Mexican Manchego cheese: it's not the same as the expensive Spanish Manchego. Mexican Manchego is an inexpensive cheese available in supermarkets and is a good melting cheese, if it's not available, jack cheese is a good substitute.

    Recipe #132689

    This is a great tasting and great looking slaw, which is a modification of a good but ordinary red slaw recipe. I decided to make it as bright and flashy as the multicolor impatiens in my garden, so I chose ingredients that have flashy colors.

    Recipe #100173

    Engine Co. No. 28, is a popular L.A. restaurant located in an historic building, which was constructed in 1912 as a Los Angeles Fire Department firehouse, which housed 2 engine companies. In 1912 LA's population was 400,000; and New Mexico and Arizona were being admitted into the Union. A trip to the restaurant, established in the 1980's has been called a "a big hug from America"; it serves American favorites and some history. Some cooking notes: although you can use canned beans equalling 4 cups, the restaurant uses dried beans starting with a one pound package which will yield about 4 cups of cooked beans. This chili is best when made one day in advance. The flavors develop better. When reheating, add water if necessary and heat slowly to avoid scorching. The recipe had been published in the Los Angeles Times, reader request column.

    Wowchos are similar to nachos, but with lots of garlic. This recipe won first place at the ''83 Garlic Festival , an annual event held in Gilroy, California, garlic capital of the world. The garlic mellows out while baking, so it tastes much better than it sounds. Garlic affectionados usually add even more garlic to the recipe.

    Recipe #303860

    Gorky's Cafe in LA was a one-of-a-kind restaurant located in the garment district. It was named after the 19th century Russian writer, Maxum Gorky; but featured Polish, Russian and other Eastern European foods. All the dishes were made from scratch, they even baked their own bread and had a micro brewery before it became fashionable. The Golabki is one of my favorites especially because of the sauce. This recipe can easily be made as a vegetarian dish which is how I make it.
