Greg Critser Cartoons

Greg Critser Cartoons

There is, apparently, a happy marriage between food, politics, pop culture and watercolor, as evidenced by Greg Critser’s artwork that adorns the walls of Euro Pane 1 on Colorado Boulevard. The Pasadena artist displays a knack for revealing absurdity as well as creating it, as each of his simple, brightly colored and simple featured comics […]

Tomato & Herb Baked Eggs

Tomato & Herb Baked Eggs

I’ve been doing a lot of recipe testing for the opening of my restaurant Mamasa in a month. (Costa Rica here I come!) I love the ease, healthiness and lightness of this dish. It’s a great make-ahead brunch item and it tastes delicious! Fridge: 6 eggs 1¼ cups red pepper, diced (1 large pepper) 1 […]

Among the Missing: David Pritchard

Among the Missing: David Pritchard

He began as a jazz/rock guy touring Europe with the Gary Burton Quartet in 1969. Through the decades and over many “albums,” Pasadena native David Pritchard has evolved and refined his talent. According to a review in Textura, Pritchard shifted to a “more classically influenced acoustic style” that was then “splendidly documented on Among the […]

Elemental: Light

Elemental: Light

The funny thing about light is that you can’t really see it. You can see the things that make light, like the sun, the light bulb overhead, or the fire in the fireplace. You can see other things like leaves, rocks, rooms, cars, and buildings because of the light that bounces off their surfaces into […]

Time to Prune the Roses

Time to Prune the Roses

The first thing to know is that it’s hard to kill a rose with bad pruning. (Phew!) But though it takes patience and time to become a skilled pruner (is that a word?) or one who prunes, pruning is very good for plants as it encourages new growth and blooms. Pruning also removes dead wood, […]

The Artist’s Kitchen

The Artist’s Kitchen

Papi says, “A splash more for good measure.” Of course this we understand because of the subtitles, but his tapping of the jar indicates his delight as much as his words. Luis Gomez is father of singer songwriter Marissa who is featured on Monica Mader and L.A. Photographer and D.P. Rick Mendoza’s new endeavor The […]

Bread & Butter

Two of the greatest things the world has ever enjoyed—two excellent elements, which are perfect partners and congenial components: bread and butter. In February, Joseph Shuldiner of the Institute of Domestic Technology in Altadena will help you make and savor one of life’s greatest pleasures by teaching his no-knead bread technique, his 21-hour boule recipe, […]

Story Kitchen

Story Kitchen

Does your story, script, novella, or (maybe) the next great American tome need a little expert assistance? Are you feeling good about the work, but not jump over the moon excited? And—even more gut-churning and onerous—you’re not sure why? Are your draft-readers (i.e. your loving, patient, supportive friends) unable to figure out the most constructive […]
