Join me at the Le Creuset Outlet in Round Rock, TX on December 2 at 1:30 pm!  Learn to make three simple Japanese dishes, perfect for filling lunch bags or bento boxes. Each of the dishes in this workshop can easily be prepared to suit vegan and gluten-free diets.  *Onigiri are balls of seasoned rice that can be stuffed, seared, or enjoyed cold. Onigiri is a simple, heart-warming treat. Eat them with crisp sheets of nori, or smothered in toppings, like fresh scallions, soy sauce or spicy mayo. *Is there anything quite as comforting as a simple bowl of soup? With the help of a few modern conveniences, authentic tasting miso soup can be prepared in just a few minutes in your home kitchen.  *Daifuku is a simple confection made from glutinous rice flour and sweet red beans. This highly addictive dessert is surprisingly easy to make, and involves a simple, but versatile no-cook recipe.Japanese Lunch Box Recipes with blogger, Mary Helen Leonard of Mary Makes Dinner2012-12-02 20:30:0041

Mary Helen Leonard1,159,868Learn the basic ratio behind making lip balms in this beginner's workshop. We'll be making two batches of lip products during this class. The first will be a sheer lip tint, colored with pearlescent mica, and packaged in lip balm tubes. The second batch will be a softer recipe meant for lip balm pots. We'll have fun mixing and matching lip balm flavors while discussing the basics of lip balm ratios and recipes, and different additives that can be used to scent, color, and adjust texture. Each student will leave the class with one share of the products made that day. If we have a full class, that will work out to about 4 lip tints and 8 lip balms per person. The class fee is $15 with a $10 fee for supplies, making tuition for this workshop $25 each.  The class will be held in Austin, Texas at a private home.  The address will be furnished to those who register through Meetup.com.  The home has a dog and two cats in residence.  Something to keep in mind for those with allergies or aversions.Lip Balms & Tints Workshop2012-09-02 14:00:008

Mary Helen Leonard1,159,868Trying out a new concept hangout.  I'd like to invite you to hang out with me, @111914713788978840821 while I make dinner!  I'll be cooking in my kitchen, just like I would any other night, except I'll be doing it while hosting a #Hangout  here on G+. There won't be a set recipe, and this will be a lot more casual than a class.  However, if you want to follow along, I'll share my recipe as I cook, letting you know what I'm doing as I go along.  If I can stay organized enough, maybe I can even post a recipe later.  If this becomes a regular thing, I can pick some recipes from my blog that we can cook-along now and then too. It would be really extra super cool if other folks in the hangout were cooking dinner too.  I think this would be a fun way for us to chat about food, compare tastes and techniques, and just get to know each other a little better.  WHAT'S COOKING: Tostadas!  I love the hell out of tostadas.  You can put pretty much anything on top of them, but the classic combo is shredded lettuce, sour cream, and spicy pico de gallo.  I'll be making a roasted tomato and chipotle salsa, fresh guacamole, and a zucchini and black bean saute to top mine.  If you'd like to make tostadas too, just pick up some soft corn tortillas and any toppings you like.   If you need some inspiration, check out my blog post on The Mighty Tostada: http://marymakesdinner.typepad.com/marymakesdinner/2011/03/the-mighty-tostada.html Happy cooking!  #cookinghangout   #MaryMakesDinner   #MMDHangout  Mary Makes Dinner Hangout2012-08-02 01:00:0041

Hey did you know that I've been writing a book? My first book, to be exact! The Natural Beauty Solution (previously under the working title, Natural Beauty Reset) is a step-by-step guide to replacing your beauty products with a totally natural routine using easy handmade recipes and simple ingredients.

I just handed in the manuscript and finished up the photography. The book is coming out this Spring, and I can't wait to share it with you!

If you'd like to keep up with the book's progress please sign up for my mailing list. I'll be sharing information on pre-order specials, workshops, and demo events.

I went on a trip, and I ate, ate, ate. What are your favorite things to eat from the place you grew up? My Northeastern comfort foods are hard rolls, baked ziti, and clams.

New recipe post! Curry Cauliflower Steaks make for a surprisingly hearty meal. Use them as a main dish over a bed of mango black bean salsa, or serve them on the side of a bigger dinner.
