Last October 2013 I launched a praline gourmet nut business named That Nutty Redhead. The recipes are based on a recipe in my Victorian grandmother Ella Mae's cookbook from the turn of the century. They're flying off of the shelves at 16 different stores and farm stands on the Northshore of MA. Whole Foods has also contacted me with an interest in my all natural product!!


My nut blends are some of the healthiest nuts that you can eat. I DON'T roast the nuts, which is a form of deep frying, causing various health problems.

 To learn more about the dangers of roasted nuts- http://healthecoaching.com/never-eat-roasted-nuts-again/

I take fresh, raw almonds & cashews and steam cook them in a giant kettle, adding only pure natural spices and flavorings, such as Madagascar Vanilla, and pure Toffee Maple. What you get is a softer, fresher nut, full of nutrients, and they're easier on your dental work. (If you've ever cracked a tooth eating a hard roasted nut and paid the dentist bill, you know what I'm talking about!)



***Mouthwatering flavors include***
Breakfast in New England (maple-toffee
 New England Praline w/ Sea Salt (Madagascar vanilla)
Cajun Hug Nut ( Cajun spices & cayenne)
Sweet Smoked Hickory (smoked bacon flavor)

Mmm!!!!! Almonds & cashews never tasted so good!!!!! They're awesome on ice cream, and in yogurt, and cereal.


I have farmers markets 6 days a week that I do in Cape Ann MA and surrounding communities.


I recently unveiled the nuts at the annual Gloucester Block Party. What a fun time! I dressed in antique clothing from my collection to portray my grandmother Ella Mae, who inspired me with her recipe.Victoriana Lady & That Nutty Redhead, a dynamic duo!! :)

 Fun at the Gloucester Block Party with That Nutty Redhead/Victoriana Lady Lisa!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGmabobZ9Lw&feature=youtu.be …



The nuts are excellent on salad and are so full of good nutrients and antioxidants. A Harvard study shows that people who eat a handful of Tree Nuts daily live longer.

 My motto is "Live A Little, While You Live A Little Longer!" Nuts are healthy!!

Filming at MODVIC aka Bruce Rosenbaum's Steampunk Home, Sharon MA



I had the privilege of interviewing Steampunk extraordinaire Bruce Rosenbaum, owner of MODVIC Steampunk Design, and touring his and wife Melanie's fabulous home. It will be featured on an upcoming episode of my cable TV program All Things Victorian on Cape Ann MA TV

H.G. Wells & Jules Verne would have been right at home here among the wonderful  H.A.T. designs, as Bruce likes to say. Steampunk blends H-history, A-art, & T-technology in a delightful way!


Bruce is curating a fantastical Steampunk exhibition entitled Steampunk Springfield: Re-Imagining an Industrial City, complete with with Humachines & Brassy Bridal Steampunk Wedding fashions from March 27- September 28, 2014 at the Springfield Museum, MA. I will be filming at the exhibition for the TV show as well.

Thanks Bruce & Melanie Rosenbaum for your kind hospitality!!
