Recent Articles from My Food Blog

  • Oatmeal Pancakes topped with cream and mandarine orange slices.

Oatmeal Pancakes with Greek Orange Marmalade

Some friends of mine recently went to Greece and brought back the most delicious marmalade I've ever tasted.  It's intensely orange with the right amount of sweetness and no bitter aftertaste.

  • Close-up of greens, sliced pear and pomegranate

Winter Breakfast Salad

This is the season for Asian pears and pomegranates so I combined the two in this salad with shaved fennel and baby kale.

  • A slice of cake with cream topping

Gluten-free Pumpkin Almond Cake

This cake is moist and tender.  I served it with cinnamon flavored whipped cream, but you can also enjoy it plain or with sweetened yogurt. 

  • an array of freshly baked coconut biscuits

Coconut Biscuits

I love how coconut oil makes baked goods extra crispy, and how coconut milk makes them extra tender and wanted to know what would happen if I put them together in a biscuit.

  • A jar of vanilla paste and bottle of vanilla extract from Heilala Vanilla.

Heilala Vanilla

Vanilla is my favorite flavor in the world.  Whenever I want to know how good a pastry chef or baker is, I try anything they've made showcasing vanilla.

About Me

Growing up in a wonderful family of farmers and cooks, I had no choice other than to become a chef. My childhood was my own personal Greek festival, weekends spent at the farm exploring the agricultural wonders surrounded by cousins, eating produce off the vine or branch, dancing, singing, and feasting.  It is this background that has shaped my career and cooking philosophy which is, beautiful ingredients, simply prepared.

In addition to creating a restaurant in my mother’s kitchen at age 6, I cooked and baked my way around both coasts and returned to the Bay Area to open my own restaurant and catering company called Bombar’s.  We closed the catering company in 2008 and I have been writing, teaching cooking, developing recipes, and consulting ever since.

I have published three cookbooks available in my Amazon Shop. Two on anti-inflammatory diets, and one on the health benefits of Mediterranean eating.  To learn more about my professional background find me on Linked In.

I spend my days thinking about what to eat next and am happy to take you along for the journey. I hope you enjoy the recipes in my food blog and portfolio and would love to hear from you as you try them. Feel free to contact me, or comment on the individual posts. I try to respond fairly quickly.

Testimonial from Instagram

HI Dorothy!
I was diagnosed with Graves disease early this summer. In order to best take care of myself (better than before as I was eating fairly clean, exercising, etc.), I began an adapted elimination diet/anti inflammatory diet. I checked out your cookbook (The Anti inflammatory Cookbook, with food plans) from my local library. I have looked at many recipes online and also other cookbooks geared to autoimmune conditions. Your book, thus far, has the best variety and good tasting recipes. They are relatively easy, use common ingredients and are delicious.

Thank you for your efforts in publishing the cookbook. It has made my search for tasty, wholesome, anti inflammatory foods much easier! I even recommended your book to my nutritionist.

Good luck in your future endeavors, especially in the food and cooking world!
