Jeanne Lavieri’s empty ceramic bowls were a symbol, she said. The more than 600 handmade bowls were to be sold along with servings of soup Saturday at the Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church’s Empty Bowls event, an attempt to raise money for struggling local nonprofits. “The empty bowl you can take home as a symbol of hunger,” said Lavieri, a pottery instructor who spearheaded the local effort. Empty Bowls is a concept that was created in the Midwest and eventually copied by fundraisers globally, Lavieri said.

LA CRESCENTA — The Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church on Saturday is hosting its third annual Empty Bowls: Hope Not Hunger event, which raises funds for three organizations dedicated to feeding the hungry. "This season reminds us of being grateful for what we have, but also lets us be able to give back," said the church's pastor, Paige Eaves. Last year's event raised about $8,000, which was donated to the Ecumenical Council of Pasadena Area Congregations' Friends in Deed House; Tujunga United Methodist Church's Bailey Human Care Center; and Christians Concerned for Burma, which offers medical treatment and food to tribes displaced by the Burmese government, she said.

Dining with Duvall By Lynn Duvall On New Year's Eve I cooked an ambitious dinner for my friends Judie and Pepe. When we finished, I asked them to be food critics and rate the meal. The overall dinner rated a B-plus. Bob, Judie and Pepe also graded each dish separately. You may recall that I mentioned I would be trying a crimini mushroom-mashed potato recipe on Christmas Day. I'd highly recommended a book which presented the side dish as part of a Christmas Day menu.

Students at the Crescenta-Canada Cooperative Nursery School celebrated friendship Wednesday by making "friendship soup" and friendship necklaces. Students brought in ingredients like carrots, celery, potatoes, chicken, salt, pepper and chicken broth to make the soup, with each student taking turns to pour ingredients into a pot and stir. School director Anita Imm asked students to write, "What I am thankful for" statements on orange, pumpkin-shaped pieces of paper.

Sabrina White pretended to slurp down bowl after bowl of soup on Tuesday as she portrayed a princess with very bad table manners in a play at Valley View Elementary School. Sabrina, 8, was playing the title role in a skit called, “Slurping Beauty,” one of six fairy-tales-with-a-twist that second- and third-graders performed for classmates and parents. Slurping Beauty wasn’t cursed to sleep indefinitely like her classic counterpart; instead, an unfriendly fairy condemned her to a life of perpetually slurping at the table.

There's a secret spot in the Americana with a wicked hamburger and a mean Mai Tai. You won't find it street side as you wander down shopping lanes. You probably won't see it from the fountain or green. No, this hidden gem is up three escalators, past mannequins bearing high-end children's clothing, tucked into a corner on the upper floor of Nordstrom. Bar Verde is a bastion of low-key elegance and unostentatious quality with a distinctive Seattle vibe. Warm wood paneling, flattering vintage lighting, private booths and cool alternative music define the dining room.

It's ironic that at Frame 128, a restaurant dedicated to luxury, the shining star is the humblest of foods: soup. With the Soup King in charge, how could it be otherwise? Chef Kareem Shaw was dubbed Soup King by none other than the governor of Michigan. His restaurant in Marquette won local soup contests year after year, not just for one soup but for all six, thus the moniker. People came for miles to taste his legendary tomato basil bisque. Barack Obama even stopped in. Shaw recently moved back to Pasadena to be with family and now we're lucky to have him in Glendale.

I have a friend who swears she healed her son's serious brain injury with food. Antioxidants, omega-3s, pure proteins - she found them in blueberries, eggs and other nutrition-packed foods and helped pave his road to health. Even if you're not recuperating from a bike accident, eating nutrient-rich foods is always a good idea. But wait, I'm not a doctor. I'm a restaurant reviewer. That's why I'm excited to have found Da Juice Bar, where my desire to increase personal health and vitality can rest easy with my love of good food.

Robert Downey Jr. stared at me all through my lunch. I was eating at Studio Café Magazzino, a tiny, home-spun café across from the massive Warner Bros. complex, enjoying the homemade soup and sandwiches, when I noticed that Sherlock Holmes himself was looking right through the window, his gigantic eyes boring out from a poster covering a beige stucco building corner. The view inside the café was less distracting. A distressed, white picket fence covers part of the counter and potted ivy spills over an old metal icebox and sink in one corner.

What is it about a diner that comforts us so? The waitresses with pencils behind their ears? The pies on display? The regulars? The long counter and swivel chairs? Is it the fake flowers and old photographs? Or just the predictable (in a good way) food? The Toasted Bun in Glendale gives you all those things and now they're doing it beyond breakfast and lunchtime. Since 1963 they've been serving up comfort food in an easy-going environment. In the mornings, they sling hash and eggs.

Three words: French onion soup. This crock of culinary greatness is the primary reason to come to a friendly neighborhood bistro called the Riverside Cafe. Situated on a corner near the Burbank Equestrian Center, the Riverside Cafe also offers a wide variety of European-inspired dishes and a pleasing, if not well-worn, atmosphere that encourages diners to linger. But oh, the soup is the thing. I had heard it was good so I went with a healthy dose of skepticism. Other places claim to have the best French Onion Soup but I?
