Tuesday’s (baking) Tip

Posted By: Terri

Happy Luna New Year / AKA Chinese New Year. It’s the year of the Pig, which translates into a time of prosperity and good fortune. All I can say to that is Bring it!

As we embark on the New Year (Luna style), it seems like the perfect time to reboot if you haven’t exactly stuck to your New Year’s resolutions. If per chance you’re determined to eating healthier and need a slight nudge here’s a simple and healthy not to mention easy peasy recipe to keep you on point.

Filled with healthy ingredients, one of them being flax seed (which p.s. I highly recommend flax meal-less gritty and a smoother consistency) I think you will delight in the deliciousness of these yummy muffins.

Orange Bran Flax Muffins

Mix together:

  • Orange Bran Flax Muffins

In a large bowl combine:

1 cup oat bran

1 c wheat flour

1 c wheat bran

1 Tbsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

In a blender combine:

2 oranges quartered and seeded and skin removed

1 cup brown sugar  * (I use 2% low fat Buttermilk)

1 c buttermilk

½ c Canola oil

2 eggs

1 tsp baking soda

*1 cup dried cranberry

Preheat over 375 degree

Line two 12-cup muffin pans with paper liners or coat pans with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl combine dry ingredients. Set Aside. In a blender combine oranges, brown sugar, buttermilk, canola oil eggs and baking soda. Pour orange mixture into the dry ingredients. Mix well until blended. Stir in dried cranberries.

Divide batter evenly among the muffin cups. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pans for 5 minutes before removing to a cooking rack.

Makes 24

If you’re looking for a really good reason to get out of town and want some major fashion pablum to boot I suggest you book your next flight for… London. (Trust me on this one. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

London’s Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) is presenting one of the most spectacular fashion exhibits ever. Not since Alexander McQueens “Savage Beauty” exhibit has there been this amount of excitement for a collection at V &A. Their latest offering on display is titled “ Christian Dior “Designer of Dreams.” It’s a breathtaking view of the brands stylish history from it’s inception in 1947 to present day . This exhibit is on display and open to the public from February 2 to July 14, 2019 and features over 500 pieces (including 200 couture gowns)!

A must see sensation. Between you and I,they had me at Dior! For more information about this exhibit check out the complete 411 at Harper’s Bazzar.com


The pièce de résistance of the captivating collection is a gown Princess Margaret, sister of Queen Elizabeth II, sported on her 21st birthday. According to The Standard, the dress is on loan to the V&A by the Museum of London

Coat-a-holic (continued)

Posted By: Terri

I live in Los Angeles and am a self complained “Coat-a-holic” ( a term I have deemed upon myself since I have two jam packed closets of winter coats…. yet living in California I may have an opportunity to wear these items for a whooping 2 months out of the year ). This however does not seem to detour me from scanning numerous coat sales at the beginning of January and perusing at warp speed a bevy of coats that will not break the bank should they find their way into my closet. Everyone seems to be having a sale on coats which is right up the retail alley. As retailers start making space for their Spring /Summer and Resort collections they’re clearing out cold weather apparel- because this is retail and everyone wants a swim suit in January. Right?
Any who-back to the coat sale-as I was zipping through my emails I came across one wonderful sale courtesy of Zara. Most of their coats are sale priced at (wait for it) $119.00 and the faux fur is a mere $69.99. All the items I’m featuring are classics and will stand the test of time (translation-buy them now and keep in your closet for years/ aka non trendy). Her’s the link to all coats on sale at Zara…happy perusing

Here are a few of my favorites….

Turn “Back” Time

Posted By: Terri

So it turns out that you really can: “Turn Back Time” after all.

For those of us living in areas of the country that partake in daylight savings time you need to turn back your clocks by one hour tonight. The good news is that you get an extra hour to sleep in, the “not so good news” shorter hours of actual daylight until we turn them back. Rest up…it’s going to get dark outside a little earlier than you would like.
