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. I am scanning your recipes and lovely Fall party ideas, today. Clarissa, you have such imagination, creativity and good taste in all you blog about! Sorry, I got busy and behind in my reading your posts. I will pass on the Halloween ideas to my oldest daughter. She used whole wheat tortillas for ‘skin’ when my grandson had a Zombie party. She used fig spread and also red pepper slivers on the skin that was torn into bite sized portions. She also used a lime colored (lime sherbet and sprite) punch bowl, found a ‘brain’ plastic mold at Michael’s so then she drizzled grenadine over the punch and frozen brain! The party had some theater makeup and each person was made up like a zombie. My granddaughter was laughing but pretending to be scared, while they all went outside to play ‘zombie’ freeze tag with my son. (Oldest daughter made a cake with a head, with red licorice cuts on the head, red fruit roll up as the tongue, and different colored frosting for a zombie look! She always uses vanilla, butter, half and half for her delicious frosting. Take care, Robin
