http://www.CARestaurantShowCase.com I write feature stories and do food photography for restaurants. I write the story that tells only the good things about it, and you buy my story and all the photos I shoot with my 24 MP Nikon DSLR camera. I made The Orange County Register last year in April 2012 when the story and photos I did for the CEO's of the Tomy's Burgers chain hired me to write a story and photos for them. It is still on Food Frenzy in the Entertainment section.

Taken from “The Frugal Gourmet Cooks American” by Jeff Smith
Makes 1-1/2 cups dressing
I found them as I was going through my library and this book has a lot of treasures as well as the history of each dish and the story as well. An outstanding book by Jeff Smith-one of the 3 I have by him.
You can use this dressing on vegetables like zucchini and others and then grill them, chicken on the grill.

As I was dinking around the web reading what was going on in Orange County, and Los Angeles for the Mardi Gras, I thought of one of my favorite Cajun restaurants called Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen on the Down Town Disney Walk at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA.
I absolutely love what the designers created in the whimsical atmosphere there. From the moment I went into the place for the first time, I noticed the fountain in the center of the patio that is composed of welded trumpets,…Continue

What I am Thankful For

Blog Posting on November 18th, 2012
I got the idea for a Thanksgiving post two years ago which I got the name by reading a story in Time Magazine called “A Year in Review in Words and Pictures.” I cannot remember who wrote it but I loved the concept of it. If you pick the right picture it can tell a story in itself. I am a very visual…Continue
