labor day

September 3, 2015

As many of you know, my cookbook Kitchen Revelry is organized around a calendar, and the first chapter is September.  September – and Labor Day – historically is a period of transition:  Back to school, fall, the beginning of the holiday and social season.  This Labor Day weekend signals a big moment of transition for me as my family and I are departing for a great adventure in South Africa where I’m reprising my role of Clare Redfield in the “Resident Evil” movies.  I’ve been blessed to play this strong, powerful character twice before and I can’t wait to kill some more zombies with my friend and colleague Milla Jovovich.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend and, even on the other side of the world, I’ll still be posting new recipes and news so keep coming back for more recipes and news.

      I'm a huge fan of Mimi Thorrison's Manger blog. There's a broccoli pasta recipe that's super simple and tasty. Try it out as a lasagna for an interesting twist.
