Our Favorite Burger (at the Moment)

Our Favorite Burger (at the Moment)

We have a soft spot for In ‘n Out because the fries are so fresh and piping hot that you have to eat them immediately, or else you might as well toss ‘em. They are as fresh as it gets, but because they’re so fresh—watch the employee slam the potatoes through the “hand cut” machine—their [...]

Summer Quinoa with Watermelon & Lime

Summer Quinoa with Watermelon & Lime

Today seems like the perfect time for a recipe that uses distinctly summery, fresh, seasonal ingredients. Watermelon, peppers, corn on the cob. All nutritious fruits and veggies that are coming into the peak of ripeness in the next month or two (depending on where you are in the country). This salad celebrates heat and lazy [...]

Vaud & the Villians

Vaud & the Villians

There are 19 villains in Vaud and the Villains, beginning with Vaud Overstreet who’s described as “charlatan, seducer, tenor saxophone.” Born 1892. Big Daddy’s a fence, loan shark, and slum lord. Oh yes, and fiddle man, vocals. Shadie Sadie Sinclair probably doesn’t need to be explained. Coco Gitan is listed as a “sultry Creole queen, French [...]

June Wayne: Finding the Proper Context

June Wayne: Finding the Proper Context

She was a high school drop out, began work at a factory at the age of fifteen, and, by her own admission, said in regards to standards of art: “I didn’t have any.” Many articles about June Wayne (1918-2011) state that she dropped out of high school because she wanted to become an artist. After reading Betty [...]

Free in July at PSC & “Thanks for the Memories”

Free in July at PSC & “Thanks for the Memories”

The Pasadena Senior Center is above and beyond what one would imagine a senior center to be. It’s not housed in a run down, depressing building along a side street; the ol’ folk out of site, out of mind. The Pasadena Senior Center is new-ish (extensive renovations were completed in 1998) and it has lovely [...]
