Music Makes Magic at the Old Mill

Music Makes Magic at the Old Mill

Built in 1816, it’s been described as the first water-powered grist mill in California, even though apparently the “mechanical marvel” of Franciscan Father José Maria de Zalvidea‘s horizontal, direct impulse water wheel left the subsequent flour damp and the mill only produced for seven years before a “superior” New England-style mill with a vertical waterwheel […]

Forgive

Forgive

    Two syllables can weigh a ton. What does the word mean? It means to find warmth in the moon and coolness in the sun. It means understanding silent words. It means going past the words that cause pain and holding hands with one who hurt you; giving them a gentle hug. It means […]

And, of course, acai (or açaí). “Juicers” love their fruit and veggies in liquid form and now they’ll have another option in Pasadena: Nekter Juice Bar. Steve and Alexis Schulze founded Nekter five years ago in their local community of Costa Mesa and now have […]

Dark Chocolate Drizzle Caramel Popcorn

Dark Chocolate Drizzle Caramel Popcorn

Giant tubs of tri-flavored popcorn: I always avoided the cheese (even though I liked it) and the butter flavor and dove right into the caramel section. I was addicted. Still am. I had to leave this batch in another room to avoid finishing it all. This is my version of that delicious caramel popcorn, but […]
