At Long Last, It’s Time

It seems impossible that I’m finally writing this. But I am. Two years ago I set out on a personal odyssey. I had grown up in the country where I fished and foraged, and used my hands, but now night after night in the corporate world, sitting blurry-eyed, scrutinizing excel spreadsheets and watching the cafeteria cart roll by, I was craving what was real and lasting versus what was fake […]

Tofu Mayonnaise

Grandma P. is in rehabilitation. She’s slowly getting her movement back. But she is not pleased with the situation. She said, “Well I guess you’re learning a lot about life, aren’t you.” Then she said, “I’m learning a lot about life too.” One of the last things we made together was tofu mayonnaise. She really loves tofu and its magical powers, about as much as she loves stevia. In fact, […]

Soft German Pretzels

I made a friend! It’s a big deal because since I moved to CA for a bit, I don’t have many in this neck of the woods. YOU are my friend. No, don’t look behind you, I’m talking to YOU. I have a very active cyber life. It’s how I cope. But the good news is that a professor of mine from college just sent me a new friend. He […]

Q&A With Grandma Pellegrini

You asked, she answered! Here is this week’s Q&A with Grandma Pellegrini. Take it away grandma! Q. How do you keep the critters from eating up your garden? I plant fruit trees and have raised vegetable gardens, and so far only the groundhogs, squirrels, chipmunks and birds have enjoyed my homegrown produce. The area is fenced in, the raised vegetable beds are covered with netting, and still the critters persist. Should I just start charging […]

A reader sent these to me and they made me grin. Old photos are such a treat to look at. Don’t you wonder what life was like for the lady in the puffy sleeves holding the shotgun? Or how about the boys? If you happen to know where these photos came from or where they were taken, please do tell. I want to know desperately. I think they below in […]

Ask Grandma Pellegrini

I never really outlined all the new sections on this site. So I figure I’ll give you a little walking tour. Shall we? Do you have good walking shoes on? Okay, let’s go… on the first stop, we go over the hill and through the woods to… Grandma’s House. We all love Grandma P. Who doesn’t love Grandma P., raise your hand…? That’s what I thought. She’s the ultimate pioneer […]

My Great Grandmother’s Garbage & The Adams Family

When I was at Tulipwood a few weeks ago, I got to see all of the carnage left over from a massive wind storm a few months ago. Lots of trees went down like dominoes and let’s just say it’s going to take a very long time to clean up the firewood. But something interesting happened when all of the trees came up by their roots… can you see it? […]
