Steak. In the summer, it’s what Dad grilled on the barbecue. In the winter, it’s what Mom tossed onto the electric grill. The sizzle sounded the same. Always a generous portion, always pink in the center and paired with potatoes. The only variable was vegetables — stringy green beans or shriveled peas. These I avoided like anthrax. For me, it was all about the main attraction — the beef. Living in Burbank, I’m a quick jaunt from two classic, family-owned steak houses: Smoke House, at Lakeside Drive and Olive Avenue and Taylor’s Steakhouse, a mere 13 miles to the east in La Cañada Flintridge (the original Taylors, which opened in 1953, just west of Downtown Los Angeles, relocated to the Mid-Wilshire District in 1970.

One translation of "far niente" is "doing nothing." But that's far from the case at this upscale Glendale establishment, which has been serving dishes from the Cinque Terre region of Italy for nearly two decades. From the bountiful floral display in the entryway to the old-world tin ceiling, coffered walls and black leather banquettes in the dining room, Far Niente Ristorante beckons with comfortable elegance. The white table linen and heavy cutlery are an indication of the fine dining to come.

Maybe it’s the wine talking, but the idea of smaller servings of the really good stuff is really appealing. With astounding food like Palate Food + Wine’s, it somehow seems just right. I am, however, doing my best to try to appreciate that it’s rather on the expensive side. Born in our very own Bekins Building on South Brand Boulevard, the building has been turned into a wine-storage vault. The ground floor of this bright-white 1928 building houses a cheese and wine shop, a tasting bar, a lounge and even a library of food and wine books.

Jacqui Brown Marcelo Irusta doesn't know much about gardening, but claims he's picking it up pretty fast after two days of weeding, clipping and turning soil. "I don't really like to get my hands dirty, and after being out here yesterday, it's not really that bad," Marcelo, 17, said. "I don't like being inside, so I took this class so I could help my teacher and be outside part of the time." Monterey High School's garden not only satisfies the life science and biology standards required by the state, it also satisfies the soul, according to Linda Pincu, teacher and instructor at the school.

Gary Moskowitz BURBANK -- On a normal day, Chris Lively starts at 6 a.m. by unlocking all six of his dry storage units behind John Burroughs High School, one of which houses his stuffy makeshift office. Lively, consulting manager for the school district's food services department, works with 15 employees every day to see that Burroughs students are fed breakfast and lunch, all without the use of a cafeteria, which has been closed as part of the ongoing construction efforts at the high school.

How many of us plod home after a long day's work, or a long day of anything, for that matter, stand in front of the refrigerator in a fog-like stupor and hope something will jump out at us that's easy and quick to prepare? Like many other working people, when I come home from a full day, the last thing I want to do is worry about creating some fabulous dinner in a short amount of time. Enter Dream Dinners. Founded in 2002 by two working mothers in Washington, their mission was to bring the family meals back around the dinner table with the least amount of effort.
