  • Beauty Class, in LA and Portland. Introducing Food for your Face - a new class where we make all sorts of wonderful beauty products from things in our kitchens!  Masks, cream, lip balm, scrubs.  A fabulous class, you beautiful thing you, and a great way to learn how to make creative gifts.
  • Recipe of the Month: Cool down in Hot Hot Heat! I learned this dish from my great-Aunt Mayder, a feisty Brazilian. This is the perfect summer main-course meal.
Langostino, Melon and Heart of Palm Salad

1 pack (about 1 lb) frozen Langostino tails from TJs (or elsewhere), dethawed

1/2 ripe Melon, diced
1 jar Heart of Palm, sliced (yep, you can find it at TJs - should they pay me or what?)
Juice of 1 lemon
1 small spoonful mayo (you can omit if you like, but it disappears right into the sald and gives it just a teeny hint of creamyness)
Sea Salt
Basil or mint or both to garnish

Combine all ingredients, serve and eat in your backyard.  Ahhh, summer.

Eat Well, Be Well
