    World Kitchen Holiday Entertaining Radio: Mark & Ashley Michael

    in Food

    If Mark and Ashley Michael know Seattle’s holiday party scene like nobody’s business, it’s because, between them, they write the ever popular Seattle Cook blog, run a lifestyle-consulting company called Mark & Ash, and founded the luxury real-estate brokerage UrbanAsh. So when Real Sisters Talk host Linda Reznicek asks the couple (who, incidentally, were also featured on HGTV’s House Hunters) about top wine spots, we take note. “There one here called The Tasting Room. It’s the oldest tasting place in the city, and it was where we made our final decision on House Hunters,” says Ashley. “But there’s another one we’ve been going to a lot lately, called Marché,” adds Mark. “If anyone wants to find us, we’ll be there Christmas Eve.” As for at-home traditions, both Ashely and Mark plan to feast this year on crab cocktail, Swiss fondue, and Grandma Nancy’s green chocolates-chip meringue cookies.

    Blow Me: A Novel By Lennie Ross

    in Books

    Blow Me is the story of three single women—each close to forty and living a life they have long outgrown.

    Aware that the women’s magazines of their youth sold them a false bill of goods about having it all—the amazing career, the baby, the house, the husband—each woman is desperate to achieve some sense of stability.

    Skylar, a hairdresser/executive assistant who lost her job and burned down her apartment after a fondue party, is living out of her car.

    Chloe, a struggling actress/real estate agent with a French Canadian accent who has never sold a house and doesn’t have her SAG card, struggles to get a Green Card.

    Dawn, an MBA-educated dating matchmaker, is hedging her bets against the ticking clock by freezing embryos.

    Their lives are in chaos and their only hope is to be rescued through marriage or by a Hairy Godfather.
    So goes the story in Lennie Ross' new novel Blow Me.
    While the title is bound to grab people's attention, it is the compelling tale of the three protagonists that seems to resonate with women (and yes, even men) who grew up after the "you can have it all" era.
    Joining me this evening to talk about the creative force behind her characters and how each woman's personal and collective situation resonates with the reader is none other than Lennie Ross.

  • Belgian Chocolate Fondue - Great for Your Get-together

    in Blogs

    Plenty of celebrations involve chocolate eats, and it is already thought about as a custom. The worth of food can’t be dismissed, and a social gathering just isn’t whole without having chocolate, maybe by means of a cake. Although the get-together may perhaps be constructed from various dishes, the meal that friend or families get together around unites them in a mutual understanding. Various foods have a variety of symbolism whether it’s actually just the every day meal, a special occasion meal, or simply a exceptional recipe belonging to the family. But, each time you are going to have a good time sweetly, absolutely nothing even compares to chocolates.

  • The Belgian Chocolate Fountain

    in Blogs

    Among the many superb picks of Belgian chocolate is the chocolate fountain. Truly, the term ’chocolate fountaint’ is comes from the name of the machine used to create a chocolate fondue. A cascading conduit which stands 2 to 4 ft high with multiple layers is set over a container. Chocolate is melted from below by applying heat and then transferred vertically by the corkscrew auger on the fountain’s top. From the top it pours over the levels making a waterfall of chocolate. Folks participating in the occasion can dip morsels like marshmallows and strawberries.
