In Conversation with Ozomatli’s Raul Pacheco

In Conversation with Ozomatli’s Raul Pacheco

The first time we heard Ozomatli was at Farnsworth Park’s small amphitheater in the foothills of Altadena. It was magical from the first note played.

Pay in bit coins the red pop-up page demanded, by a certain date after which the price will rise. I examine my maladjusted bank account and draw my optical conclusion: Byte […]

Lemon Ricotta Flaxseed Pancakes

Lemon Ricotta Flaxseed Pancakes

Sundays are meant for pancakes. And crossword puzzles and Netflix. But more importantly, pancakes. These lemon ricotta flaxseed pancakes are delicious and a nice change to the bisquik-style pancakes. They are creamy with a subtle lemon flavor. I made a double batch so I could have extra batter for the next day. They’re so good. […]

Scaling the Big Trucks

Scaling the Big Trucks

Do you remember being a 3½ foot 5-year-old? Besides playing with your friends, your toys, or the family dog, your days were about looking up. Looking up at your parents, your teacher, the tree branch you wanted to reach, even the dang sink! Dreaming of the time you’d no longer need the step-stool to wash […]
