One City, One Story:  Data Visualization

Pasadena’s 2014 choice for One City, One Story is Robin Sloan’s Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. It revolves around a young man who is out of work, begins to staff the midnight-to-8 shift at this fantastical bookstore, and ends up possibly dealing with immorality.

Is This Spring?

With a high today of 87ºF, has summer unofficially arrived? Officially, the vernal equinox marking the first day of spring is Thursday, March 20th, but flip flops, shorts, and tank tops have been the wardrobe of choice as people swarm the outdoors—running, cycling, pushing baby strollers, or heading to the park—with a spring in their [...]

Blanched Vegetables w/ Garlic-Thyme Aioli

This is inspired from one of my favorite meals that we eat during summer sessions at Quillisascut Farm School: a heaping platter of lightly blanched seasonal veggies with various homemade aioli for dipping. We pass the platter around, scooping up mounds of garlicky, spicy sauce, and the veggies act as a nutritious vehicle. Since I’m always [...]
