Ahwatukee Foothills News staff members travel down memory lane to share what the holidays mean to us
November comes along and minds are on travel, turkey and family gatherings. This classic slider provides an autumn twist. This Bacon and Bleu Cheese Slider will fast become a family favorite and change up the typical “hamburger night.” The dish is fun, and uses a slight shortcut with cornbread mix and it’s easy to get the kids involved (buttering the pan, mixing the ingredients, what kid doesn’t want to crack an egg?). If you aren’t a bleu cheese fan, easily substitute equal amount of goat or gorgonzola cheese. For an extra kick, add one jalapeno (seeded) to the cornbread mix. Prefer a moister cornbread muffin? Replace 1 cup of the milk with one can creamed corn. Kids typically prefer a toned down version of the mayo, use more or less of the chipotle depending upon your families taste. These sliders make great appetizers for your holiday parties or a great main dish for family meals. Enjoy!
Every Thanksgiving presents the same challenge — how to juggle the turkey and the stuffing and the pie and all those sides in just one oven.
A trip down the grocery store produce aisle could soon feel like a stroll down “Sesame Street.”
National Nacho Day is Nov. 6. Tip your sombrero to Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya — the man said to have first topped fried corn tortillas with melty cheese in 1943 — and dig into these innovative dishes.
Several Ahwatukee area dentists are making it easy for kids and parents to enjoy Halloween while avoiding a sugar overload.
The first time I ate white chicken chili, it was wrapped in a burrito. And I fell instantly in love.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Home-grown tomatoes are NOT the best-tasting ones. Not necessarily, that is.
Avid Southwest gardeners see August as a time to enjoy the beauty of summer annuals, the bounty of a summer garden harvest, and the shade of the early morning or late afternoon. Southwest gardeners also mark August as the traditional beginning of the fall vegetable garden. Some fall vegetables should be planted by seed as early as mid-August: squashes like acorn, butternut and Hubbard; zucchini; melons like “Crenshaw,” honeydew, and casaba; fall sweet corn; tomatoes; peppers; and green beans. And September marks the beginning of the fall vegetable planting season — the most abundant season in desert gardening. So, preparing the garden’s soil is on every vegetable grower’s August checklist.

The first step in saving tomato seeds entails nothing much more than squeezing a bit of the seed-gel mix out of the cavity of a tomato fruit into a glass. No need even to sacrifice eating the rest of the fruit! (AP Photo/Lee Reich)
Rise and shine, Mesa breakfast lovers; you’ll soon have a new place for your first meal of the day.
The little mining town of Superior — about 50 miles from the East Valley on U.S. Highway 60 — hosts its annual Prickly Pear Festival this weekend, celebrating all the drinks, desserts and dishes you can make from the spiny cactus. If a jaunt into the mountains isn’t in the cards, here’s where you can taste the cactus closer to home (and, no, margaritas — the easiest prickly pear-flavored concoction to find in the Valley — didn’t make the list).
Justine and Brian Denison say they adhere to all the growing practices required for organic certification, yet if they label their beans and tomatoes “organic” at the farmer’s market, they could face federal charges and $20,000 or more in fines.
BLT sandwiches are synonymous with summer. And the only thing better than a BLT sandwich is a grilled BLT pizza!

Justine and Brian Denison adhere to all the growing practices required for organic certification, but if they label their beans and tomatoes "organically grown," they could face federal charges and $20,000 or more in fines. That's why they and hundreds of other small direct-marketing farms across the country have adopted an alternative label: Certified Naturally Grown. Certified farms pledge to follow organic practices, while avoiding the high fee and extensive paperwork required for the federal organic label. (AP Photo/Mike Groll)
When I was growing up, I loved my mom’s stuffed eggs. Heck, as a chubby and happy-go-lucky kid, I loved anything filled with mayonnaise.
When I was growing up in Virginia, one of the signs of summer I anticipated most was the appearance of fat green tomatoes on the vines in our garden. We picked them well before they started to blush, dipped the thick slices in egg and milk, dredged them with cornmeal, salt and pepper, then fried them in a skillet.
Who says salsa has to be made from tomatoes? Or dumped unceremoniously from a jar?

The classic caprese salad — tomatoes paired with fresh mozzarella and torn, peppery basil leaves — is such a delicious blast of summer.
When it comes to food and drink pairings, most of us tend to be pretty old school. As in, red with beef, white with fish.
