Our resident spirituality expert – Rory Lula McMahan – is blissing out on this month’s deck, The Lioness Oracle Tarot. The Lioness Oracle opens those wise spaces of the heart so gently and so, so beautifully. Created as visually stunning collage, Alejandra Leon has brought sacred space into form in a way that reminds me it isn’t always about the struggle to overcome.
With this current lunar cycle being ripe with change, it’s important to take some time with comfort food and close girlfriends to nourish your spirit. I suggest a ladies night-in with wine and cookies, which gives me the opportunity to introduce you to my favorite gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe using browned melted butter.
Spring is here and the farmer’s markets are opening which is such an exciting sign that summer is just around the corner. I love asparagus and after 4 years of attempting to grow it with no success, I appreciate the uniqueness of this green vegetable even more.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I am excited to share my newest favorite tequila-based cocktail, the Mezcal Negroni. Negronis are a classic Italian cocktail that usually consist of gin, Campari and vermouth. I am all for a strong cocktail so I love this story. And I love this take on the classic Negroni. Mezcal offers a smoky note to the bitterness of the Campari. It is truly one of my favorite patio sippers.
