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 [...]

I don’t think of myself as being much of a cook. Which is maybe a weird way to introduce my first contribution to a food blog, but one of the great things about the Mary Lee Kitchen community is that everyone has a place at the table—even those who are culinarily challenged like me. It’s less that I’m a bad cook as it is that I’m an excessively time-crunched one (who doesn’t relate to that?) I usually have way less [...]

Going through past posts is kind of like going through your high school yearbook: you cringe a little, but you are also proud of the milestones you've achieved. As I looked through the past three years of posts, I have recognized that my cooking, recipes, and food photography have improved by leaps and bounds, and I am so proud of where Mary Lee Kitchen is now. The blog was once just a place where I would post a quick thought [...]

It has been a few weeks since I have written last.  So much has changed--I have a new website: (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 I had to look up new recipes and figure out how [...]
