Having been a reader and admirer of the Onion for years, I must take issue with Jeff Softley's incomprehensible and long-winded condemnation (Letters, Jan. 30). The paper lampoons current events, politics, pop culture, newspapers and the media in general. Softley claims these subjects are irrelevant. Uhhh, not if you ever leave the house, or watch TV, or read the paper. In their brilliant book, "Our Dumb Century," the Onion takes on the entire history of the 20th century! In this work especially, they exhibit, to quote Softley, "wit and clarity, an incisive perception about what is being lampooned or discussed, which gets a laugh because of a core of truth in the observation expressed."

A potful of these beans disappeared in a flash at a summer barbecue. The recipe is based loosely on one by Anders Strandberg of Gustaf Anders Restaurant in Santa Ana. Anders added the nutmeg, and I put in the bacon, onion and Chinese thick soy sauce, a molasses-based condiment that turns the beans a rich golden brown (Look for Koon Chun brand in Chinese markets).

October 10, 1991 | ROSE DOSTI and DEBORAH KIDUSHIM-ALLEN, This column is based on the newly revised "Light Style: The Low Fat, Low Cholesterol, Low Salt Way to Good Food and Good Health," by Dosti and Kidushim-Allen, a registered dietitian (Harper San Francisco: $14.95)
The modern pig has gone on a diet. Today's pigs, raised on a leaner diet, produce leaner meat. This is good news for calorie counters, since pork is an excellent source of iron, zinc and vitamins B6 and B12, which are difficult to obtain from fish or chicken alone. In this dish, Chinese Stir-Fry Pork, minimal amounts of oil and the leanest cut of pork--the tenderloin--are used to keep fat calories low.

Dear SOS: I am interested in obtaining a recipe for a chocolate chip walnut pie served warm with ice cream at the Gallery Restaurant in Sisters, Oregon. It was delicious. --MRS. G.R.H. Dear Mrs. G.R.H.: Thank you for the request. We loved it, too. Expect the walnut pie to form a paper-thin crust on top.

It was too good to be true, and too good to last. As 1984 came to an end, so did the business person's lunch at El Meson, a Mexican restaurant across from the May Co. in downtown Los Angeles. For a few months, lucky customers were able to get a complete, very good meal for $2.75. First came crisp, freshly made tortilla chips topped with a tomato, onion and cilantro salsa.

January 5, 1989 | DIANA SHAW, Shaw is a free-lance writer in Los Angeles.
Whether it's profound self-knowledge or just plain cynicism, some attitude has taken hold and stifled my impulse toward New Year's resolutions. I'm going to spare myself a slew of self-recriminations by not promising to keep a clean house, a balanced checkbook and a benign disposition. I'm going to obviate the need to berate myself for impulse buying, procrastinating and smoking on occasion, by not forswearing them to begin with.

Chalupas are a traditional Mexican snack. Normally, they're boat-shaped masa shells stuffed with something savory. Sometimes, though, they're made with regular corn tortillas. The convenience more than makes up for the small sacrifice in authenticity. Combine those tortillas with leftover baked or boiled potatoes and chorizo and you've got a dinner that's filling and fast.
