    By Elana Horwich

    July 18, 2013 | 9:00 am

    Everyone says exactly the same thing when they taste this gazpacho.

    “Oh-my-God.” (And there’s also a large number who follow up with, “and I don’t even like gazpacho.”)

    Well, they’re right. This is God’s work. I can hardly take the credit. I didn’t create the molecular... read on

    Don’t pretend like you didn’t inhale. In California it’s considered medicine. It’s ok, we can talk about it.

    And let’s face it, if you do smoke, you are going to want to eat. And if you don’t smoke, you are most likely capable of shoving late night cake into your face while... read on

    Italians would never make bruschetta on whole grain bread. Believe it or not, it’s not even easy to find good whole grain bread in Italy. But come on, no matter how good a fresh, crusty, country loaf of ciabatta might be, white flour is just not that good for us. (Don’t tell my... read on

    I always figured peaches were a super sugary fruit as they are so darn good. But it is not so. Peaches:

    • contain small amounts of beta-cryptoxanthin which has anti-cancer and anti-aging properties.

    When given peaches, make peach cobbler. Here's my Famous Guiltless Cobbler recipe.
