My sister, Caitlin, and I spent last week climbing and eating our way through the hills of San Francisco. (Full disclosure: neither of us must contend with any food intolerances, so we did not have to do any prerequisite planning around that). However, one of the perks of living in or traveling to a larger city, of course, is the increased availability of delicious food that does fit into a modified diet. Many of the menus from restaurants where we [...]

Valentine’s Day is next week. It's a day to celebrate your loved one, but I should tell you, my husband and I don’t actually recognize Valentine’s Day as the day we are most considerate of one another. Instead, we try to consider one another every day. When we were dating he would go to the South Pasadena Farmer’s Market and bring back flowers at least once a month. Have I also mentioned that he always washed ALL of my dishes [...]

It has been a few weeks since I have written last.  So much has changed--I have a new website: www.maryleecatering.com (it is still in process, but check it out).  The Holiday Season is quickly upon us, and I can't seem to change my kitchen menu fast enough. It is hard to find differing recipes for Halloween, and then for  Thanksgiving, and of course for Christmas… On top of the change of menus there is also a change of season and weather--which [...]

Well, it’s a typical Monday night in Pasadena, CA. My husband works most nights, so I usually take this time to hang out with friends and try new recipes out on them.   Tonight, my friends Lyndsey and Angela wanted to cheer up our friend Beth. Angela was going to get her flowers, Lyndsey a card, and I was going to bake vegan cookies! I don't usually cook vegan food...so I had to look up new recipes and figure out how [...]
