I recently had a kale and quinoa salad at Chelsea's Kitchen in Phoenix, AZ. 
They have already parted with their Brussels sprout salad recipe and I'm 
hoping you will be able coax this slaw recipe from them as well.

Thank you.


Hi Nancy,

Sorry, contacting restaurants that are currently in operation is not something that I do.

There is a kale and quinoa salad recipe here that may or may not be similar:

BoHo Farm & Home

The purported Chelsea's Kitchen's Brussels sprouts salad recipe can be found on these sites:

Saw a request for a quinoa and kale salad for the week of March 25th...
seems this recipe originated in a CA restaurant called La Grande Orange 
Cafe and is very popular.... gets rave reviews from everyone who has 
tasted it.

If you go to Google and type in latimes quinoa and kale salad....the 
recipe is there from the LA Times. Sounds delicious and very close to 
the request on your site.


Hi Sharon,

I see the recipe you mean, at La Grande Orange Kale Quinoa Salad

It does have grapes and sunflower seeds, lemon and parmesan like the Chelseaís Kitchen salad.

How about this one:  Chocolate Mija Pie from Bauer's Restaurant in Denver, 
CO.  They have been out of business for many years, but growing up it was my 
favorite dessert.  It was similar to a French silk pie, but had crushed 
toffee on the top.

Good luck to both of us!


Hello Nancy,

This recipe was printed in the Denver Post. See:

Left Behind by a Cruise Ship

Subject: Cruise Ship Curiosity

Hi Unk,

My DH and I live in St. Thomas USVI. Our condo is situated above Crown Bay 
where we watch Cruise and Cargo Ships come and go. Researching the cruise 
ships we've seen provides a little entertainment but we're having trouble 
finding one statistic that has us curious. Occasionally you read about 
passengers getting left behind by Cruise Ships for one reason or another. 
Drunk, forgot the time, car broke down etc. In most cases, it's the passengers 
fault that they get left behind. How many people get left behind per year? 
Of those left behind, how many are due to their own fault and how many are 
due to the Cruise Line?

Happy hunting,

Hi Lisa,

I could not find any statistics on this, not even an estimate. The cruise lines may not keep track of it, and even if they do, itís likely that they would try to keep it out of the public record. Canít go around worrying potential customers, you know. There is a discussion about this topic at Cruise : Cruise Critic

There are more anecdotes here:
