Published Recipe

OK, it seems that I've been concentrating on cooking quite a bit this summer. Of course, "Julie and Julia" may have had something to do with this. I always read Los Angeles Magazine. I even follow their Twitter posts. Last month's issue had the Best of L.A., including restaurants, spas, bakeries, dog groomers, tiki drinks, etc. Grub Restaurant in Hollywood won for best tuna melt in Los Angeles. L.A. Magazine then had an online contest for the best tuna melt recipe. I sent my recipe in and I won!!! Last night, Larry and I gorged ourselves with our $50 dinner coupon at Grub. It was divine.

Blueberry Lemonade

Interior

Fresh Spinach & Greens with Warm Goat Cheese,
Roasted Shiitake Mushrooms & Sundried Tomatoes tossed in homemade Champagne-Lemon Vinaigrette. Topped with warm Walnut-crusted Goat Cheese

California Crab Cake. Crab mixed with Tarragon, Dill, and Lemon coated in Panko and cooked to golden, served with Citrus Cole Slaw and Ha Cha Cha Creamed Corn with Cheddar

Drunken Steak. Marinated in Stone Pale Ale, tender and delicious cooked to Medium-Rare with a Mushroom Onion Pan Sauce & served with Mashed Potatoes & sautéed Spinach

Grub is located in the heart of the old studio district of Hollywood on Seward St., just south of Santa Monica Blvd. It's in a transformed, side-by-side, Spanish Revival duplex with a large patio. It's a charming place and we plan to return to try their award-winning tuna melt. Thank you, Los Angeles Magazine for introducing us to this great Hollywood hideaway.

Woot woot. Yea Ellen!! Radio, newspapers, now magazines!

Between the LA Times article (that my friend in Rancho Mirage sent to me with no knowledge that I KNOW YOU!), and this award, you are on a streak.

I anxiously await TV and book deals. You know I'm first in line for your travelogues.

You are THE BEST!

Congratulations, Ellen! It sounds like a yummy sandwich. Why is the cheese in the picture orange? Isn't TJ's Havarti whitish?
You are a creative marvel!!!

Thanks so much for all the congrats, everyone!

Ellene (Yarnartist). The photo of the tuna melt on the LA Magazine site is Grub's tuna melt. My sandwich was not photographed. And yes, you are correct, the Havarti Cheese with Dill from T. Joe's is light in color, like Jack Cheese.

Thanks again!
