Sometimes, simple is the most sophisticated. For summer desserts, I am looking for fresh flavors, bright colors and less time in the kitchen. A sabayon is a French sauce (zabaglione for Italian version) of eggs, sugar and wine that is whisked to a frothy, creamy consistency. It is elegant spooned over fresh fruit or a simple pound cake. I like to pile the fruit into a beautiful wine glass and layer the fruit and sabayon. Serve immediately or chill for several hours.
In this day and age, sex runs rampant throughout pop culture. There are TV shows (Sex and the City was a personal favorite), songs, and plenty of movies that go into far more detail than I care to.

I used to have a rigid “no video chat” policy for my clients. My theory was that you never present yourself in a video chat the way you would during an in-person chat. Your hair and makeup is half-done, the lighting is all wrong, you don’t turn off your cellphone, your roommate barges in looking to borrow toothpaste and you’re stone cold sober, nervous and stuttering. Sounds like an excellent way to make a first impression, right?

Special Guest Blogger and Mr. Yenta himself, Bryan, is here to share a little nostalgia with the recent four-year wedding anniversary that came and went on May 25th. So much of the conversation on The Wedding Yentas column is from the woman’s point of view before the wedding actually happens. Today is different because Bryan is here with “the man’s” point of view as he looks back on four years of wedded bliss. Weddings are wonderful, but anniversaries are apropos times to reflect.
Who doesn’t like flowers? Unless you’re severely allergic, it’s hard not to smile at a big beautiful bouquet. Whether you’re a man or a woman, the gesture remains a solid rite of passage along the road to courtship, and no matter how long you’ve been together, a bunch of roses will always mean something.
Astrology 411: With the lunar eclipse occurring in early June, it’s a busy and important time to move projects forward. What does that mean for you? Well, one sign will notice that this is a positive time to make a statement in the workplace. (That means you can start screaming, “Show me the money!”) And another sign should start concentrating on their greatest dreams and desires (and why they deserve it) in order to start receiving the goods!
The problem that many people have with mortality is less about death, and more about having been born in the first place. There is something about accepting having been born that is scary for many people. Take a look at how many people live their lives either mired in thoughts and emotions about the past, or racing ahead to a nonexistent future that is being constantly constructed in their mind. Anything seems preferable to actually accepting their present state of existence – right here, right now. This inability to exist completely in the present (rather than in one’s imagination) is another way of describing the state of not having completed one’s birth.
