1 cup Greek olives, pitted and halved
By Susie Iventosch

A savory side perfect for spring
I've been studying several foreign languages on my iPad with the Duolingo language app. It is really fun and the more languages you study, the more time it takes because Duo challenges you to keep up learning streaks. So, every day I try to get in 5 to 10 minutes per ...By Susie Iventosch

Devour this devilishly divine chicken dish
We recently visited our daughter in New York City, and one night we dined at a really cozy, neighborhood restaurant called Lupa. It seems that most of us were craving chicken that night, but there was only one option on the menu - Pollo alla Diavola (devil's chicken) ...By Susie Iventosch

A warm side for cold winter nights
Over the holidays, my nephew Brian gave me a beautiful kitchen towel along with a fun little tapas cookbook, "200 Tapas & Spanish Dishes," by Emma Lewis. This was the perfect gift for an auntie who loves to be in the kitchen, stirring up new recipes! In the book I ...By Susie Iventosch

Nothin' says lovin' like chocolate cake in the oven
What can say "I love you" more than a beautiful homemade cake? This cake is especially fun because the loves in your life won't know there's a delicious dark chocolate cake inside until you cut into it. This cake recipe is one of my favorites because it's so moist and ...By Susie Iventosch

Radish Salad with so many greens!
It seems appropriate to take a break for crunchy greens and veggies after the holiday season, which is chock-full of rich food and fabulous goodies. While radishes are not a favorite of everyone, I love their fresh taste and crunchy character. They make a great snack ...By Susie Iventosch

Southwest Crab or Shrimp Cakes
(Makes 8 crab or shrimp cakes)

By Susie Iventosch

Add warmth to the holidays with Southwest crab or shrimp cakes
This is the time of year when I start to think about new crab recipes. For some reason, January and crab go together in my mind and crab cakes came up in conversation at a recent holiday luncheon. Oddly enough, this conversation was prompted by the delivery of a lovely ...By Susie Iventosch

Buche de Noel a holiday hit
One of our Lamorinda Weekly reporters and I love to exchange recipes. Sora O'Doherty is always sending delicious ideas my way, and a couple of months ago she sent me photos of her holiday sugar cookies, mincemeat tarts and Buche de Noel, along with a treasure trove of ...By Susie Iventosch

Delicious apple dessert just right for fall
Apples are especially wonderful this time of year with so many different varieties available in the markets. When baked with spices, they make an excellent fall dessert that is nice and light. We've made these with several different kinds of apples, and while I love ...By Susie Iventosch
