I grew up in the shadow of the studios & that means you are constantly surrounded by the film industry. I enjoyed that part of my life in Los Angeles. Whether it is having your own celebrity sighting (much more common than you would think), watching a movie being filmed where you just happen to be, having friends/family that work in the industry, being an extra, or even just going to the movies ~ it creates a sense of magic that is hard to resist.

Broccoli 'Chips' with Salsa
4-6 broccoli stems (use florets for
- favorite salsa
1) peel the broccoli stocks, getting
rid of all the thick outer skin
2) cut the stocks thinly on the diagonal,
into 'chips' ~ try to make a big as
you can for ease of dipping
3) serve with salsa
What a lowfat, low carb, low cal way to get your
Mexican food fix! I just love salsa, but hate all
the calories/carbs that go with it. This is very figure friendly - Hollywood stars LOVE that! :)
A lowfat, low cal, low carb, vegetarian treat. Can't get much more Californian than that!
...and the Oscar goes to...
