Inside The Green Scene with Gamora | Zoe Saldana Interview #GuardiansoftheGalaxyEvent

Inside The Green Scene with Gamora | Zoe Saldana Interview #GuardiansoftheGalaxyEvent

If you look up the term "infectious smile," you should expect to find Zoe Saldana listed as the definition. Regardless of how you are feeling at the moment, how many drivers cut you off on the road that morning or how many cups of coffee you might still be in need of to function properly, when Saldana smiles, immediately, you will find yourself smiling in return, spirits uplifting to heights of joy normally reserved for summer days at the beach and state fair funnel cakes.

Which is why it's difficult to fathom how this vivacious actress morphs into a hardened, edgy green criminal assassin in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY.  Somehow she manages to make it look effortless on screen.

Parisian Mumbai Salad #FoodieFriday #100FootJourney

Earlier this week, I shared my delightful cooking experience at Le Cordon Bleu in Los Angeles and as promised, I'm highlighting the French and Indian fusion recipe we made, Parisian Mumbai Salad for this week's #FoodieFriday.   

I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to share this recipe, inspired by the film THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY direct from Le Cordon Bleu.  If you are not in the mood for salad, the chicken will be a divine addition to your barbecue spread.

When I was younger, I was content with a set of headphones and a simple cassette player, crooning along with the static-filled jams of my favorite 80's bands.  Thank goodness we've come a long way from those days and I've grown up to fully appreciate the wonders of clear audio sounds!

Mainly I have my husband and Best Buy to thank.  My hubby is a home entertainment enthusiast, insisting on having the best quality we can afford.  And Best Buy is the store he relies on to have the equipment he desires at an affordable price.

Light-hearted humor, romance and platters of amazing gourmet foods - there's so much to love about the new Young & Hungry series airing Wednesday's at 8:00pm ET/PT on ABC Family.  

Young & Hungry stars Emily Osment as Gabi Diamond, a food blogger hired as a personal chef for a tech guru and his fiance.  Osment is all grown up from her former Hannah Montana days, bringing mayhem and merriment to this fun and frisky sitcom.

Italian sausage sizzling, onions and red peppers crackling, corn on the cob slowly heating atop foil-wrapped potatoes placed carefully atop the edges of the charcoal grill. Barbecuing was my father’s specialty and even now, every bite, every scent and sound of grilled food takes me right back to my childhood.

Last week, when I learned to make Parisian Mumbai Salad with marinated grilled chicken at Le Cordon Bleu Los Angeles, I created a new culinary memory, one with a burst of Indian and French cuisine tossed in! Now, each time I replicate this dish, I will find myself reliving the moments this amazing experience and my fondness for THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY movie that led me there.
