Eco-Friendly Thanksgiving Hostess Gifts

I’ve been invited to spend Thanksgiving with my boyfriend’s family and I want to make a good impression. I’m pretty proud of my apple pie recipe, which I’ve adapted from various cookbooks and I now make using organic flour, butter and sugar. Last year, one of the vendors at the farmers’ market recommended I use a blend of apples I hadn’t tried before and the results were great. So, I’ll make a pie.

Greening of a Fave Fashion Line

When I get complimented on something I’m wearing that’s made of organic cotton or bamboo, I get a big kick out of boasting, “It’s organic!” But only a few years ago, it wasn’t so easy. When deciding to green my life, it was easiest to start with home products (replacing toxic products like Windex and Fantastic with natural ones by Seventh Generation and Method). Then I focused on finding suitable substitutes for beauty products (out with Chanel, in with Dr. Hauschka). My closet? Not so fast. I was pretty attached to my favorite lines and was reluctant to sacrifice my style.

Yoshi’s, The Countdown



With an opening date firmly set for November 28, the folks over at the soon-to-open Yoshi’s in the Western Addition might be sweating bullets (the main staircase remains suspended and doorways are just going up—you get the picture). At 29,000 square feet, the space is ginormous and will accommodate just about every dining permutation you can dream up—bar, bar/lounge, mezzanine, dining room, private dining … you name it. Between the dining room, lounges and bars, there are more than 400 seats, and the jazz club seats about 400, too. Massive!
