I will admit that I have never cooked with persimmons until today. I have had them in salads but that’s about my extent of my knowledge and use. Shame on me! Now that they are in season- I’m going to try to use them more often. I have also been wanting to add pomegranates to […]

A Castle Green Holiday

A Castle Green Holiday

The archways, the moldings, the fireplace mantels. The dark wood, the large windows, the obvious elegance, the whisper of another era. We’re speaking of Castle Green, now over 117 years old, no longer a hotel, but rather a home and place of business. On December 6, Castle Green opens its doors to the public once […]

The fun of treasure is the idea of the unimaginable and the invaluable, and what PMH holds within its walls is nothing short of priceless.

Master Chorale has decked out red, double-decker bus in holiday finery and is popping up in areas around the southland. On Saturday, November 28, the LAMC’s carol bus will pop up at Mercantile Place and One Colorado […]

State of Mulch 2

“In consideration of the coming El Niño, which may bring huge amounts of water to us or even in imagining the years of drought we are likely facing in the future, there are no greater actions we can take than to contour the land to capture water and to use mulch to help cleanse, augment […]
