Sonic Youth is arguably the greatest rock guitar band of all time. The uncompromising avant-garde quartet recorded a plethora of mesmerizing guitar jams during its 30-year career. Thurston Moore was half of the guitar tandem of the defunct band. Moore, 61, recently released "By the Fire," his fourth solo album since the demise of Sonic Youth.

Chili, the way you like it, is the easiest route to dinner

Several years ago, my partner and I spent a month in San Antonio, where his family lives. We were both unemployed at the time, so we spent the days driving around the city exploring and eating all the wonderful food. We consumed a lot of chili.

Anaheim chili peppers pack sweet punch

Elongated and light green, Anaheims are mild chili peppers common in Mexican and Southwestern dishes, where they often complement pork, poultry, black beans, tomatoes, corn, cumin, coriander and cotija cheese. Large enough to stuff, they pack about the same amount of heat as Poblano peppers but are a bit fruitier in flavor. Crisp and slightly spicy with a subtle sweetness, they originated in New Mexico but are named for the city in Southern California where they were first commercially grown.

Smoked lentil chili a robust fall favorite

Melody Gow of Mead began making her Smoked Lentil Chili in college. It was the mid- to late 1980s, and she was going to school at Eastern Washington University. She came up with this recipe as an alternative to canned chili, which she said cost more and wasn’t as good.

Even though the recipe doesn’t require an entire turkey, it still can provide enough leftovers for next-day bold and creamy Turkey and Green Chili Enchiladas.

Tomatillo quiche fits all appetites

This Dinner Together almost didn’t come together at all. I scorched my pinky. I neglected the kids’ dinner. I nearly roasted the tomatillos into oblivion. Despite the challenges, the final result was delicious.

Try heat, cheese in your cornbread

Hot competition

On a recent Saturday, patrons at the North Spokane Library checked out more than books. A smoky, spicy aroma wafted all the way out into the parking lot courtesy of the first Firefighters vs. Librarians Chili Cook-off. Spokane County District 9 firefighters and Spokane County librarians went head-to-head in a taste challenge to see who makes the most mouth-watering chili.

Tasty easy dinner: veggie chili

As a judge at a chili cook-off, I quickly learned that some like it hot, some mild, some with meat others without. One thing was definite: Everyone was passionate about chili. Here is a variation I created using only vegetables, which makes a perfect easy dinner during this busy season.
