Happy Labor Day Weekend!

By Cheryl Ryan

From the garden this Labor Day: This year’s new, best discovery is Shishito chili peppers.  They are a mild green pepper (best harvested before they turn red) that continues to produce as you pick them! You cook them like poppers in a little bit of olive oil and salt for about 3 minutes on each side. They are delicious and create a colorful splash on any summer plate. 

Eyebrow update: You may remember that I did an eyebrow grooming post a while back and I’ve substantially updated that process.  Now I just fill in any shape gaps with this pencil and use this Boy Brow by Glossier. It just goes on like mascara. It literally takes less than 30 seconds and works great.

This hat clip purse holder is so smart! I really like wearing hats now to keep the sun off of me but I’m not a fan of carrying it around.  Enter the hat clip purse clip.  Honestly, brilliant.

My end-of-summer recipes are coming in hot.  This one and these are using all the fresh produce you can get your hands on. I kind of want them all!
