Ms. Hatcher Turns Up The Heat...
Sure, she's dating Ryan Seacrest (who in the hell cooked that up anyway?) and she might be two pounds shy of a stick figure, but apparently this Desperate Housewife isn't as desperate for a homecooked meal as one might think. Yes, Teri's a bit of a chef in her own right. And a pretty good one from what I hear. Gee, I knew there was a reason why I liked her. :)
Teri's Cheater Gourmet Brownies
--Still hungry? See this and more Desperate Housewives Celebrity Recipes at cooking.com
|RECIPE INGREDIENTS |
| One package Duncan Hines Brownie mix or other brand |
| 1/2 cup melted butter |
| 2 eggs |
| 1/4 cup water, ice cold |
| 3 tablespoons milk |
| 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon |
| 3/4 cup of soft gourmet chocolate |
| 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional) |
|Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.|
|Blend all ingredients together easily on medium speed, for two minutes. Fold in 3/4 cup of soft gourmet chocolate (I use cabernet flavored dark truffles). For extra decadence, break apart any milk chocolate bar into small pieces and add that too. For nutty folks, add 1/2 cup chopped pecans.|
|Using a 13 x 9 pan, bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 22 to 28 minutes.|

Sorry for the Delay...
It's been a crazy two weeks for me and I just haven't had it in me to write. Besides being totally drained, I'm battling a juggernaut of a sinus headache that up until two advil ago, was drilling a hole through the top of my skull with a jacknife. On top of all of that, I just learned that I might have to give my cat up for adoption (or at the very least get him declawed). I hate both options, but he's been slicing into folks like he's on a freakin' safari, and I really just don't know what to do anymore. I raised him from a kitten, he's like my baby. :(
Well, enough of my sob story. More posts to follow soon....
Promise. :) Thanks for hangin' in.

When dropping cash on that ritual bottle of 15 SPF this summer, don't forget to put some of that money where your mouth is. According to dermatologists, the thin layer of skin on the lips is so delicate that it CAN very easily burn and blister under intense sun exposure. Smartsheild SPF 30 Lip Balm
($2.95 at 3rliving.com) is a good bet for locking in the moisture while keeping the UVA/UVB's locked out. The Vitamin E and Aloe Vera blend smoothes away chapping, while the high SPF keeps your lips protected. And it's environmentally friendly! Al Gore would be proud.
Summer is about sheer everything. Sheer textures, sheer fabrics, sheer fragrances, and ultra-sheer makeup that's fuss free and light as a feather. Perscriptives Lip Shine in "Pillow"
($9.35 at buybeauty.com) is a makeup bag must have. It delivers just the right touch of natural color along with a hint of shiny gloss to keep your lips looking fresh and berry ripe all day...
Hey, they cook when you plump 'em baby. ;)
This by far is my best beauty product. Smith's Rosebud Salve - 0.8 oz.
($5.25 at amazon.com), really proves that a little can go a long way. It lasts forever. The cute tin is flat, so you can pretty much carry it in any purse, which is always a good thing where beauty emergencies are concerned. I use it for practically everything. First of all, it's an amazing lip moisturizer and gloss. You can wear it under your lipstick as a primer, over it as a gloss, or solo for some shine. I also use it sometimes as a handy pomade to quick-groom my edges and tame my eyebrows. Plus, it's not at all balmy, so it can double as a skin cream when you need a quick fix for dry hands, elbows or knees. Doesn't slide off nearly as quick as Vaseline, no matter where you put it. Great stuff!
Finally, an excuse to toss your Totes....
An umbrella is more than just a handy little contraption to protect a gal's salon fresh locs these days, it's a walking peice of art too. So why should yours be any substitute? The tres chic designs from Pare Umbrella
are not only pretty conversational peices, but they're functional too. Choices include Afro Diva
(my personal fav of course), Lace Queen Dot, Glass, Miss Butterfly
and Cherry Bon Bon
. Did I also mention that it's a great way to make new friends?
...or pick up hotties? ;)Afro Diva - $65 - pareumbrella.com
