    I've been making this dressing for about 20 years now; it's especially good on tostada salads or just a simple green dinner salad. The recipe is from the El Torito Restaurant in Los Angeles and was published in the LA Times reader request column.

    Recipe #390312

    This recipe is an old time favorite at El Torito; and a delicious soup that we have really enjoyed. The restaurant, when submitting this recipe to the LA Times for their reader request column, also suggested that this can be made into a whole meal soup by adding hominy, corn or other grains. They also serve this at their weekend brunch.

    Recipe #389777

    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.

    Recipe #312713

    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.

    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.

    Recipe #291322

    Recipe #191638

    Though cassoulet is not usually a vegetarian dish, this variation on the classic is very good. For the white beans one can use flageolet, or cannellini or great northern beans. You can also cook the beans a day ahead of when you plan to make the cassoulet. The formation of the crust twice, with the first one mixed into the cassoulet, is well worth the extra 20 minutes it takes. As Julia Child would state, cassoulet is not a fast dish but a delicious one. This recipe was adapted from: "The Vegetarian Bistro", by Marlena Spieler.

    Recipe #138097

    Recipe #131065

    These popular muffins have been served at the Rose Cafe, in the Venice community of Los Angeles, Calif, since the cafe first opened in 1979. They are healthy as well as delicious. The bran used is wheat bran which can be purchased in bulk from Whole Foods Market and other health food stores.

    Recipe #128376

    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

    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.
