This recipe was inspired by a cookbook I received from our friend Dick Greenberg  many years ago. Sadly, he left the platform many years ago as well... He sent me this cookbook, once he discovered that I was a gourmet cook but did not have this book.So let me share the ingredients (the key is having all this to make it work):1. black truffle oil2. black truffle mushroom3. morrell mushrooms (in my case dried ones)4. Fresh Trumpet Mushrooms5. two garlic cloves6. quarter of an onion (I always use sweet onions)7. little butter with seasonings, parsley, tarragon, thyme and oregano8. Chicken Stock preferably a good one9. 1/2 cup of half and half or heavy cream (today I used half and half)10. any kind of pasta, I used some colorful ones just to make it more interesting.Needless to say, Diane t...

As most of you who read my posts, we have been supporting the Los Angeles Festival of Books for the past 24 plus years. We missed the first two and then we became loyal supporters year after year. Yesterday we went and you can read my post of what I thought. Now with that said we did not go this year the second day, like we always did two days in a row. Ironically, I had an easy day with real estate today.Well, not to dwell on it here are a few Fotos that I did not post yesterday.No matter what I wish you a wonderful week ahead and if you have time enjoy reading books. Please buy and read books. Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

This post was inspired by Debe Maxwell, CRS  request for my recipe of a Clam Chowder. My take is a combination of Uber Chef Jasper White's corn chowder and I add clams from Wild Fork to improve it and I also add some carrots. Hence it becomes my recipe:)Debe Maxwell, CRS  keep in mind I do not use bacon or anything with bacon so that is a difference of my chowder.Also, I stopped adding corn starch to thicken the soup, instead I crush some potatoes to thickn it.  Bon Appetite!  Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Diane and I have been going to the Festival of Books for the past 24+ years. If memory serves me correctly, we only missed the first two... Now with that said this year we did not get a new coffee mug. Usually, we get one every year commemorating our visit to the Festival of Books. This year was a total disappointment.The marketing was too vague and too discouraging. In the old days if you wanted to see an author you did not have to pay to enter. This year the message was mistakenly focused on, that you cannot get to see a panel or an author unless you pay for a ticket. Really??? False messaging. Sadly, many bought into this message including us.I told Diane it was just poor English and not clear messaging... we disagreed... on a side note I was right.So, with that said, let me tell you...

Loved the idea and it so happened I had cabbage in the fridge as well as I always have olive oil.Now I thought this would go well with bake Argentinian Red Shrimp.Then I figured how about some great Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Bisquists to accompany the dinner Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Wordless Wednesdays: Citrus Tree pruning in the back yard... Diane decided to prune the trees. Needless to say, she has been coordinating with our Gardner to do this. Hence, I was stuck dealing with them.They showed up in the afternoon while I was in the middle of keeping one deal together and negotiating two other deal.Next thing I know is they are putting cut branches into the "trash" barrel after they filled the "Green Barrel."  after they left, I was trying to salvage many of the oranges. Clearly you know for future Orange Juice.... Needless to say, managed to save some but what you see here was probably 50% the rest were lost!    Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Lemon, Avocado, Bucatini & Shrimp pasta dinner... this dinner was inspired, because Diane wanted a break from " Red Sauce so with that said I reached into my cookbooks and found this recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks: "Pasta Modern." Those of you who read my posts know I would end up modifying the recipe to make it my own.Well, I did the short recipe, lemon, lemon zest, shrimp, avocado and lemon juice.My additions, fresh parsley, clam juice, little bit of heavy cream and a lot more wine:). I also added little bit of heavy cream and substituted red onions with sweet onions as well as added some baby spinach,  Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Speechless Sunday: Double Done's with a few extras... I have always had extra food to prepare for a later meal. Needless to say, I made baked potatoes and kept them in the fridge for making a different meal.Well today I thought it would be fun to use my left-over baked potatoes as "Double Dones" and add the leftover vegies from the other day to it. Now with that said I needed to have some meat with it as well. Yes our new favorite chicken sausages were added and it was a total success. So with that said what did you have for dinner tonight? BTW for some reason my actual photos are not working so these photos were from a previous time but the same meal. Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

My latest version of a corn chowder with clams... I have been a huge fan of fresh corn and other ingredients to make the Chowder. This time I decided instead of the canned minced clams why not go with the Wild For clam meat version.All I can say is once you switch to this you will never go back to the canned minced clams.You can actually taste the clams, and it was a hit. Tonight's easy dinner, since I had a really challenging day. Some day I might post about it. In the mean time enjoy the Clam/Corn Chowder. Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Just for fun: I do not mind sharing our oranges with the Squirrels what I mind is if they are wasting the oranges.Well, see for yourself.I make fresh squeezed orange juice every other day and Diane I love drinking it. Now days here to get a quart like I squeeze can cost anywhere from $5.99 to $8.99 and for me it is 20 minutes, worth of work. I hate waste, I guess I grew up with parents who were born before or during the depression and I learned to be frugal about certain things.Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Happy Birthday to our 3rd President of the United States of America... thank you Kathy Streib  for spreading the word. Most people are too busy with what I call distractions, like the Golden Bachelor getting divorced, our President forgiving College loans to get votes to get reelected and the list goes on and on.Happy 281st Birthday to the 3rd President of the United States. One of my favorite Presidents of the many. I keep this Two Dollar bill next to my home office desk and gives me pleasure to glance there periodically. One might as why? Well, I loved many of his messages that he shared with us. So let me share some of my favorites: "...I think myself that we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious. Government big...

Friday for good Catholic is always fish for dinner... I have grown up as an Altar Boy, Catholic Grammar Schools and Catholic High School. Diane has grown up as a good Italian Catholic so having Fish on Friday is pretty much an understood.Instead of the standard baked/fried fish sticks and baked/fried potatoes I opted for baked Salmon with baked vegies and mashed potatoes. So, what did you have for dinner tonight? Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Speechless Sunday: Holly went for a ride to Manhattan Beach... Diane wanted to get some special personalized cards for her friends...so with that said off we went to Pages the bookstore that has wonderful cards in their store. Holly did not want to be left behind. Hence, she left her frenemies aka the cats and joined us for the ride.Holly is very focused and regal when she goes on a ride especially to Manhattan Beach, since she loves looking at the Pacific Ocean. In case you are wondering she was focused on when will her mother finally get in the car i.e.: let's go this is Manhattan Beach we are going to:))   Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Hello to my clients and friends.  As April continues to rapidly moves along, I hope that all reading this is close to or finished filing taxes or extensions and that it hasn't been too painful for you. I've not addressed all of the negative information being pushed out by the media regarding Realtor lawsuits.  But since I've received numerous questions, I may as well briefly address it here.  How will the new rules governing the National Association of Realtors ("NAR") affect you? On the surface, it looks as if Realtors are the ones who have the most to lose…My honest (as always) opinion and instinct is that first-time buyers and veterans (as well as sellers who buy into the headlines) will be the ones that are hurt by this, yet over the next six or more months, nothing will change.  Fi...
