About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.

  1. Hi Clarissa, hope you are much better now and back on your feet again. Thanks for all your sharing.


  2. So sorry about the problems, including being sick! I love blondies (Applebees does fairly well with a maple cream sauce and it comes on a black skillet). Looking forward to seeing your recipe and photo made it look so yummy, too!


    • Well thank you Robin my friend! As a matter of fact the recipe for the blondie is a copycat adapted from Applebees and I am pleased to say i nailed the maple sauce, and the brownie is really close to Applebees.. I definately be posting it up this weekend.
