NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory on a cold night in 2011 To those from other places currently gracing Pasadena with your visit, be it for the holidays, the Tournament of Roses Parade, the Rose Bowl Game or merely lunch, welcome.  I hope the weather warms up for you.

Hahamongna Alternatives

Hahamongna Alternatives

Hahamongna Watershed Park, named for the Native American village that once nestled there, is one of Pasadena’s prettiest places. Now, it’s NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory that nestles, framed by the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains.

Almost December

The Altadena Farmers’ Market Challenge

The Altadena Farmers’ Market Challenge

The challenge: to feed a family of four using only $25 at the Altadena Farmers’ Market. Since we’re a family of two, I thought, “no problem!” Not only was it not a problem, it was a pleasure to find good things to eat at the Market—enough to make us a meal with leftovers and then […]
