“Masochism is a valuable work trait” – Chuck Palahniuk
Today, I’ve written a 10 page paper and created my first Youtube video. Holy smokes. That was hardwork.
Anyways, have a go and I hope you enjoy it. Thought I’d share my secrets because everyone deserves to have great skin. (Fake or not – like boobs! Hahaha.)
This recipe is excellent when you are “cleaning” out the pantry. Great when some old bread and old salad bags (spinach or arugula) are ready to be switched for some new/fresh stock.
This version is vegetarian. If you want to make it, what I call, “husband-friendly” I suggest adding bits and pieces of some bacon crumbled on top.
Bake the bacon, simultaneously, on a sheet pan. (Take out a few minutes early and drain on some napkins – If you don’t have a wire/drain pan thing. Obvioulsy, I don’t, because I don’t even know what it is called. blush*)
Brunch is served. 🙂
Garlic (The kind that is pre-minced in a jar)
Better than Eggs
Defrosted and drained Frozen Artichokes
Arugula (The kind that comes in a bag pre-washed/chopped)
(I Can’t Believe it’s Not) Butter
Salt and Pepper
Cheese – Any kind you like I used Parmesan and American
Butter a shallow baking pan
Cover the bottom with sliced sourdough
add about two layers of Arugula and Artichokes
Scoop and spread a couple of tablespoons of minced garlic (I did about 3, I love garlic!)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Pour some Better eggs over the mixture and top with your cheese.
Throw in 375f degree oven for 20 – 35 minutes. The eggs should be fluffy, cheese melted, and slightly toasted.
It’s been awhile since the SF Beauty pages have been graced with a beauty-junkaholic shopping list. Honestly,nothing has really caught the watchful beauty junkie eye of mine this past week. No “gottahaveits” or “gimmedats” – I, sadly, have doled out more cash for loot at Trader Joe’s ( $5.00 Champagne and Blueberries are in season! ) than I have at any department store this month. But lo and behold, this morning has dusted me with a few exciting new additions to my bottomless caboodle and never-ending desire for more beauty rockin’ booty.
1. Urban Decay’s Stoned Poison Ring – She who does not get sparked with even the slightest bit of interest by this ring has a fashion style of capital B-oring or is nowhere near a city that boasts fashionista advocacy. How can someone not think that this is just plain gorge!? And I know, that we’ve all seen our fair share of lipgloss rings dating back from the early 90’s but, come on, Urban Decay’s Stoned Poison Ring wins the International Lipgloss Beauty Pageant hands down. It has three interchangeable lipgloss colors and comes in the cutes – cutest! – satin purple box, which makes it almost worthy for a one knee proposal. I said “almost.”
3. Sephora by OPI Nail Candy collection or “GO GIANTS!” nails.
Sephora and OPI came out with a fabulous bright, candy-inspired nail collection. Perfect for summer and all the sunnery days that we, here in San Francisco, will be enjoying in September to October. Haha!
Also, If you didn’t know that I was a huge GIANTS fan, now you do. I’ve been goin to the home games off and on, and I thought – since we’re doing pretty great with our ace pitchers – next game I was going to dawn an orange and black tiger stripes manicure. Fun, right? Here’s the tutorial, just in case you’d like to do it for your team, too or just think the tiger-stripe look is freaking cool.
Still working on a 3. – Will update soon. xoxo
You’de have to be absolutely allergic to kitchen techniques if you were to completely screw up this salad.
Super easy. (Did I say that already?) Goes great with burgers and french bread.
2 Ripe Roma Tomatoes
Salt and Pepper
(Capers, Olives, Baslamic Vinegar, or Anchovies optional)
Chop, drizzle, sprinkle, and serve. The real trick is to use excellent quality olive oil, the best mozzarella you can find, and fresh ripe tomatoes.
