Author of International Steampunk Fashions, Lisa was working on a second book, a Victorian/Edwardian fashions book when her gourmet nut snack business, That Nutty Redhead, began to take off in popularity. Lisa had been selling the scrumptious all natural, gluten free almond & cashew nut snacks at a farmers market in MA when foragers from Whole Foods tried the snack and declared that they had to have it on the shelves. That was in 2014, only 9 months after taking the product to the public. Fast forward to early 2016, That Nutty Redhead nut snack is now sold in most of the Whole Foods markets in the New England (north Atlantic) region, along with other major grocery chains such as Market Basket, Roche Brothers, Crosby's, Donalen's, McKinnon's, and more. The Praline recipe is based on one from a cookbook that her Victorian era grandmother Ella Mae owned from the late 1800's. That Nutty Redhead is set for expansion as she endeavors to go national.
