This beautiful brioche is shaping up to be a great alternative to regular bread
We were out for lunch about a month ago and right next door there was a tempting bakery. It was beckoning all during lunch, so after we finished our meal, we dipped into the bakery to see what kinds of goodies they had on hand. The shelves were rather bare, and all ...By Susie Iventosch

A decade of delicious delights: Susie's top recipes from her vast repertoire
It is nearly impossible for me to believe that five years have gone by since we celebrated the Lamorinda Weekly's fifth birthday, much less 10 years since the paper was founded! And, I have been writing the food column for the past nine years already, which has been ...By Susie Iventosch

Eeek! Elk in Spaghetti Sauce?
It seems hard to believe, but this is the first time I've ever made spaghetti sauce for my family. Oh, I helped my mom make her sauce when I was a kid, but never on my own. Our family enjoys many different pasta dishes, but for some reason, I have always had a mental ...By Susie Iventosch

Thoughtful Food
During the holiday season, dinners can be very robust and filling so a light lunch is often in order. This year, we had a four-day eating extravaganza at our family gatherings, so on Christmas Eve, my mom and I, while really hungry for lunch, wanted something very ...By Susie Iventosch

These Baby Potatoes are Twice the Fun
Whether you're planning a big New Year's Eve party or a small dinner gathering, these twice-baked baby potatoes are sure to delight. We have made large potatoes like this, but I thought it would be fun to do the baby potatoes as a warm appetizer to pass around. They ...By Susie Iventosch

Terrific Toffee for the Holidays
I usually shy away from making toffee at home because I've failed at it numerous times. It has turned out chewy, or burned, or even completely separated by cooking it to the point of no return. I usually just wait for my neighbor, Paula, to make her annual holiday trek ...By Susie Iventosch
