So, one of the many many things I've wanted to try lately is how to roll my own Sushi. Well, lets just say I haven't gotten around to it yet. Anyway, I came across this fabulous recipe. Cute little Sushi molded into an ice cube tray. Simple ingredients and the kids can help too! I can't wait to try it. It came from a cook book called Time For Dinner written by three editors from the much missed Cookie Magazine. It has to be great, right?
Ice Cube Tray Sushi
7 oz. sashimi-grade salmon, cut into ¼-inch cubes (cooked shrimp or vegetables work well, too)
3 scallions, chopped
3 tbsp. cucumber, finely chopped
3 tbsp. (approximately 5) grape tomatoes, finely chopped
2 tsp. lime juice
1 tsp. orange juice
2½ tbsp. mayonnaise
¼ tsp. sesame oil
¼ tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 c. cooked rice (preferably from a Japanese or Chinese restaurant)
1. Combine all ingredients except the rice in a bowl.
2. To make the sushi-rice blocks, use an ice cube tray as a mold. Prepare the mold by sprinkling it lightly with water.
3. Press the rice into the tray squares; use your finger to push a hole three-quarters of the way into each square.
4. Turn the mold upside down onto waxed paper and tap until the squares fall out.5. Fill each hole with 2 tsp. of the salmon, shrimp, or vegetable mixture and serve

I am falling for this years Fall 2010 Lace up boot trend! I can't help but picture these boots worn with a cute little flower dress left over from summer. Or even better over some skinny jeans with a long cardigan and over sized tee. So much fun and a nice change from the tall boots. Although, don't throw out those tall boots just yet girls..... you know they are still going strong. Just mix it up a little with some tie ups and you will feel like a new woman. Pick up any one of these on Piperlime.com. A pair for every budget.

Okay people I am still totally in love with the Swedish Hasbeen Clogs. They are beyond cute! I loved them last spring and they are still going strong. With so many to chose from how do you even pick. Although, I think the ones with the highest heel is the way to go to keep it fresh and modern. Check them out @ SwedishHasbeens.com or pick up a pair @ endless.com.

Okay, I just realized that I am going to get into aromatherapy. I have seen it a million times, and never realized I should do it. Hello! All those yummy smells that can help with everything from depression to nausea. And to think this whole time I have been trying to find the perfect scented candle! Duh. Anyway, this all started with an oil burner I found at Wal-mart , that came with a terrific smelling gardenia scent. It got me thinking about smelling lavender before bed. Oooo, so spa like. I did a little research . I haven't purchased the oils yet. But , I will be well on my way this week . I will let you know how it goes. Until then here a few recipes to get you started if you feel the urge.

Okay people I am sure you have been seeing some of the fall trends. One of the most fun so far is the over the knee boot! Yes, we can all wear them, although you may want to steer clear if you are under 5'4".
If so, go for the cute bootie! There are so many styles to choose from. I love to use Piperlime. This website offers up some cool links. Like "Rachel Zoe's picks" or "Real Steals". The tall boot shown here is by Chinese Laundry and only $99. Don't forget western boots are HUGE right now! So go for it and have fun.
