  1. Please let us know if you have a car. I'm working on a list. Also if you'd like to get together while here, I'll do my best to work out a time!

    And I highly second the Golden Truffle--one of my favorites! I'll get back to you with more after you let us know about transportation. Oh! And where in Costa Mesa will you be located--makes a difference if you don't have a car.

    Edited to fix typo

  2. I'm in Laguna Hills, so I think I'm the furthest south. I do hope that my DH and I can make one of these events. This time of year is just too busy to attempt a trip to LA or thereabouts, though.

    I'll keep reading and when we can make something, we'll jump in!!

  3. Not exactly haute cuisine, but I got this from my Mom. I've made it for people from all over and they love it. In our house it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it!


    ½ cup (1 stick) butter

    17-oz. can corn with liquid*

    17-oz. can creamed corn*

    8 ½-oz. box Jiffy corn bread/muffin mix

    2 eggs, slightly beaten

    1 cup sour cream**

    1 cup grated cheddar cheese**

    *I have never seen a 17-oz. can of corn. I think they’re usually 15-16-oz. Works fine.

    **Mom & I both usually use more than this of the sour cream and cheese.

    Melt butter in a 9x13 dish. Add whole corn, creamed corn & corn bread mix. Gently mix with a fork. Add eggs and mix in with fork. Drop sour cream by tablespoons over the top of the corn mixture. Dunk them under a bit. Cover top with cheddar. Bake 20 to 30 minutes at 350, or until it is firm. Let cool slightly before serving or serve at room temp.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. If you work your way as far north as Cambria, be sure to stop along the way in San Luis Obispo to visit a fabulous winery, Claiborne & Churchill. They are not only wonderful people, they make great dry Alsatian wines. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised if you've never tried them before. Also, be sure to ask them about a new restaurant in the area--the winery has several private tasting dinners each year. Several have been catered by a wonderful chef--Maegan---? (sorry I can't come up with her name) and she has recently opened a restaurant in the area. However, I'm sure that if you email Claiborne & Churchill, they will be happy to let you know where it is and how to get there. Tell them Deb & Don sent you!!

    Enjoy your trip!!!

  5. I usually have lunch out with a girlfriend about every week or so. For dinner, we eat at home (I cook, hubby does the dishes) way more than we go out. It's usually because we don't have a lot of exceptional restaurants in our immediate area and get tired of going to the same couple of places.
