Eggplant Dip -- Baba Ghanoush
I really love eggplant, and this easy to make Mediterranean classic is one of my favorite ways to enjoy it. Baba ghanoush is great as a dip with vegetables, sliced bread or my personal favorite, crispy pita chips. I make it in minutes with my Vitamix. Here’s the recipe. I hope you like it as much as I do.
1 large eggplant
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon Tahini paste (ground sesame seeds) *found in the international food aisle
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 lemon, juiced
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to... Continue Reading

I showed up at the nail salon this week with three different polishes in tow. I sat down for my manicure and placed each bottle slightly off to the side. The manicurist began with the usual routine; remove old polish, soak, buff and file. The whole time, we were chatting about different things -- the cold weather, how quickly the month of January seemed to be passing by, what was on sale at the supermarket. You know how it goes -- nail salon conversations run the gamut.
When she was finally ready to apply color, she looked down at the three bottles and asked, “which one?”. The r... Continue Reading

Imagine an autumn afternoon with a group of your favorite girlfriends gathered together at a salon for make-overs and martinis. Sounds fun, right? Well it was! And every time I look at the pictures from that day, I smile at the memories.
Cell phone pictures are fine, but when the memories really matter, I always bring along my “real” camera. I’ve had my Canon DSLR for about four years and I love it. I love it because it’s easy to use, I love it because it can keep up with the action, but I mostly love it because when I see the pictures, I’m transported back t... Continue Reading

The AM Style team and I have a fun time with our annual Christmas Craft Project every year. This time around, we each had a clear plastic ornament to decorate.
I decided to fill mine with colorful sheer ribbons and added rainbow colored jewels around the outside. It was fun, colorful and super easy.
If you missed last Saturday’s AM Style, here are some of the ornaments decorated by our models and staff.
Warm regards,Leah and the AM Style Team

There is a wonderful book called “thxthxthx: Thank Goodness for Everything” by Leah Dieterich. It’s a collection of handwritten thank you notes. What’s interesting about the notes is that they are not exactly written to “people” -- they are written to the “things” that the author is grateful for every day. She wrote a Thank You note to Air, to Words, to Clean Sheets, to Burnt Toast. The book is one of my favorite gifts to give because it’s a reminder that there is always something to be grateful for, and that there is great power in a Thank... Continue Reading

Did you know November is "National Peanut Butter" Month? I know, I know... it’s surely some marketing gimmick crafted by the peanut butter industry. But I enjoy peanut butter, so I’m ok with a little PB self promotion. How about you? Are you a fan of peanut butter?
I thought it would be fun to take a poll to see what tops the list of peanut butter favorites. And for good measure, I included the easiest peanut butter cookie recipe ever. If you have peanut butter and fifteen minutes, you’re golden!

The older I get, the more I appreciate when someone compliments me on my skin. I’m a firm believer that good skin starts with good “skin care”. I don’t just mean products -- I mean, how you “care” for your skin.
I can remember my grandmother doing the same routine her entire life. She washed her face with soap and water, and applied Ponds cold cream. It was simple, but it worked. And she had great skin into her 80's.
I have the advantage of improvements in technology that my grandmother didn’t have. But the fundamentals of good skincare remain the sa... Continue Reading

My family has a tradition of “pitch-in” brunch when we’re all gathered together at holiday time. It’s a casual way to feed everyone, and everybody is responsible for a dish.
I like to make mini frittatas and serve them with fresh berries. Tonight is Temp-tations final TSV of the year! It’s an “18-pc Bake & Serve Set” including their “first ever” platter (perfect for serving a turkey) — and you’ll have a choice of Old World or Floral Lace.
This easy recipe starts with a base of 8 eggs, 1/3 cup of milk, and 1 cup of ch... Continue Reading

The forecast for most of the country will be chilly this Thanksgiving. A great way to chase away the cold is to wrap your hands around a cozy cup of cocoa in front of the fireplace. This cocoa beats store bought any time!

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch of salt
1/2 cup of water
3 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
marshmallow cream (aka fluff) or marshmallows
In a medium saucepan mix cocoa, sugar, cinnamon, salt and water. Bring to a slow boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute.
