April 4, 2012

It’s very exciting to see one of our own being considered for the Vezina trophy. Jonathan Quick certainly deserves it and the fans, who have stuck by the Kings deserve it as well. The Vezina trophy has been a coveted award since the 1920′s. It is named in honour of Georges Vezina, goaltender for the […]

I was watching the game last night. It became overwhelming at one point and I had to leave. I went outside to have a cigarette and regain my composure. I could still hear Bob Miller and Jim Fox calling the game. It was like I was back in the 1940′s listening to the game on the […]

Putting this recipe together before the game is a lot of fun. But the best part is it only takes about 10 minutes to cook and get it on the table after the game. Ravioli made from won ton wraps are easy – simply plop your rich and creamy no-cook filling in the middle of […]

I saw Tom Hanks in the stands last night rooting for the Kings. Let’s face it ladies, would Tom Hanks root for a loser? No! It’s sign from the hockey gods and we are going to win every game from now until the end of the season. If they can keep up that fast pace […]

  Here’s a really good and easy recipe that can be made in the microwave. I cooked it in a 350 degree convection oven for 1 hour because I don’t do microwave cooking. But I have enclosed the directions for both in case anyone prefers microwave cooking. It turned out super moist and delicious. Sometimes […]

This is a good, simple, make ahead meal. Just add the shrimp 5 minutes before you sit down to eat. It seems like a lot of ingredients but the whole prep time is only 20 to 25 minutes. Then it cooks itself for about another 25 minutes. 1 lb. fresh or frozen deveined shrimp 1/2 […]

I first had this dish at Erik Erickson’s restaurant on the pier at Ventura, California. I went home and recreated it as near as I could. It’s a deceptively easy elegant meal to make after a Kings win. You may also use regular polenta, just cook it and place in a cake pan. Let cool and slice […]

The blade is slightly curved in one direction, either way, to aid in retaining or lifting the puck of the playing surface. The goaltender has a slightly modified stick. The lower part of the stick is wider, the angle is smaller and […]
