About/Contact Info

On and off the Las Vegas Strip–recipes, grocery shopping, food related things-to-do, food news and restaurant reviews from a former chef and Las Vegas native.

The biggest problem with Las Vegas is deciding where or what to eat. The possibilities are endless…

Please note that altitude and humidity can effect the outcome of some recipes, particularly baked goods. The recipes on this site have been prepared at 3,000 ft. above sea level and with an average of 5-10% relative humidity. You may need to adjust the proportions of some ingredients to achieve the same results you see here. In addition, oven temperatures can vary widely, even with newer appliances. It’s recommened that you use a reliable oven thermometer to assure success for baking.

When a particular brand name, company, or restaurant is mentioned in one of the posts on this blog you can be assured I have used that brand in my recipes or have eaten the food at the restaurant named in the post. I also shop at the markets mentioned on this blog-I wouldn’t send you there if I didn’t.

    Hello! Looking for FRESH soft shell crabs to buy and prepare at home. Can you please help! Thanks much!

    • Try any of the large Asian markets in Chinatown on Spring Mountain (Greenland, Ranch 99, SF Market…or 168 Market on Jones). They have large seafood departments with the freshest seafood in town. We especially like the seafood department at 168 Market on Jones at Spring Mountain.

  1. I own the Maple Tree Cafe.. would love to have you do a review of our place. We have awesome breakfast/lunch made from scratch :) Homemade fritters, cinnamon rolls and more

    I had the PLEASURE of waiting on Kathy and her daughter last night at my restaurant, Sage, in Aria Hotel and Casino.
    My post is about the patron being the best part of my job.
    You hear alot about the angle from the guest’s point of veiw but so little, if anything, about how the other side side of the coin is relative.
    Kathy and her daughter, who were celebrating and having a reunion of sorts made my night so enjoyable. I could not have asked for better guest. The wanted and tood my suggestions and beamed and let me smother them in care while giving them space…just saying it is a two-way street and I loved them.

  2. Hello! many thanks for the fantastic blog. stay the best!

  3. I absolutely love your blog. The recipes, the food the pics….shall I continue? Oh, and this tidbit about the elevation is so on point. My husband and I live in Bogotá, Colombia where the elevation is 2,600 meters….what that is in US terms I have no idea. But it’s just really high and I have so many problems with baking. My cakes come out hard and flat after rising. The only thing I can trust is bread and anything with yeast. Also anything I read that gives a baking time has to be sometimes doubled. What frustration. I have already subscribed and look forward to more from you all.

    Am pleased to find/read your blog. Your reference to Hungarian/German comfort food (stuffed cabbage) intrigued me as my Hungarian ex-husband introduced me to wonderful foods and seasonings. Thank you.

  7. Do you mind if I add a link to your site from mine? Thanks! -Michelle
