Singing Sisters

Singing Sisters

We were introduced the other day to Sister Timothy of the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles who make their home in Alhambra. We admit we were caught off guard when told that they are releasing their new CD Lean Into the Wind. CD? Singing nuns? And the answer to both is [...]

Square Foot Gardening & Mosaic Bricks

Square Foot Gardening & Mosaic Bricks

They say that nothing tastes better than home grown vegetables, the flavors enhanced by healthy soil devoid of pesticides. Find out yourself by building a square foot garden. Square foot gardens use only twenty percent of the space of a conventional garden, no tilling of the soil is necessary, and the amount of water needed [...]

Parnucklian for Chocolate

Parnucklian for Chocolate

My parents lied to me: “Nobody cares how much you weigh;” “You’re the smartest girl in your class;” “Everything’s going to be fine.” I’ll bet your parents lied to you, too, in small ways or large. But few children grow up hearing and believing the kinds of lies Josiah grows up with in B.H. James’ [...]

Photograph in the Studio

Photograph in the Studio

Photograph in the Studio by Jacqueline Tchakalian There’s a black, sticky spot on the photograph of my husband. Shadows of branch, lattice work, pattern his shirt. Half his face glows in late after- noon sun, the other half darkens in its own shade. There were three of us that day:  Father, mother, daughter. We had [...]

Savory Potato Bacon Tart

Savory Potato Bacon Tart

There is no doubt this recipe is indulgent. I mean potatoes, bacon, butter, cheese, and pie. I’d be delusional if I tried to pass this off as health food. However, I’m a big believer in giving yourself a small amount of really ridiculously delicious foods with good quality ingredients and not worrying about the calories. [...]

Zhena Folk Chorus

Story-like narratives and colorful authentic costumes are [...]

Huntington High Tea & Chinese Garden

Huntington High Tea & Chinese Garden

We spent a few hours on the last day of March 2014 at the Huntington, stopping in for late afternoon tea and focusing on the Chinese Gardens. Before we could enter the Tea Room, one of the two teenagers in our foursome took us on a detour. Teen No. 1 lured her friend under a canopy and [...]

Creative Writing for Wee Ones

Creative Writing for Wee Ones

Julia Edwards believes a child doesn’t need to be able to write (or read) to be a great storyteller. We tend to agree as memories of our junior Hometown Pasadena associate replay through our heads—many an evening was spent watching act after act of endless (until bedtime) improvisational plays with a cast of characters channeled [...]
