Our Featured Article
Planting an Aromatherapy Garden This Spring
by staff writers

With the snow quickly fading from our yards and our memories, and our focus on the frozen returning to more positive chillers like ice cream & slurpees, it would seem that spring has been sprung upon us.

While we soak up the season, and all of its wonders, many of us will begin to plan out our summer gardens, both those from which we intend to harvest, and those serving other, more ethereal needs.

Whether you tend towards a well organized and thought out seedling propagation, or respond spur of the moment to the annuals available at your local nursery, garden arrangements are a superb way of beautifying your home, while maintaining an important connection between you, and your planet.

The Yoga Diet
by Kirsten Hawkins

One of the essential things about yoga, together with the positive attitude, is the diet. It is highly recommended to perform your yoga session after about 2 hours from a main meal. Many specialists agree that what we eat is reflected both in our appearance, as well as in our health state. In other words, it is important to mind the things we consume, in order to prevent illnesses and discomforts.

However, the question related to what does healthy food mean, remains a constant reason of inquiry for many people. According to reliable studies, a very diversified diet represents the ideal food for any human organism. However, fruits and vegetables, containing fibers and vitamins should be a permanent component of your daily meals. Furthermore, everything that can be defined as natural food is recommended, when it comes to preserving your state of well being.

Penne with Smoked Salmon in Lemon-Vodka Cream

Lemon verbena is a favored scent for perfumes, as it carries a clean and refreshing aroma. We find lemon verbena to add a lively twist to the classic salmon pasta with vodka cream...

1/2 lb penne
1 shallot, minced
1/2 cup chopped lemon verbena
3/4 cup vodka
1/2 cup creme fraiche
1 cup cream
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 LB salmon fillet
salt and white pepper

Bring water and 1 teaspoon salt to boil in a 2 1/2 quart saucepan. Cook the pasta until just al dente, about 8 minutes. Strain in a colander and rinse with warm water. Rinse out the pan, and towel dry. Mix the shallot, verbena, and vodka in the saucepan, and bring to a vigorous simmer. Add the creme fraiche and the cream and simmer until thickened. Add the lemon zest, salmon, pasta, and salt and pepper to taste, and cook until just heated through. Serve in pasta bowls with a little lemon zest and fresh verbena as garnish.

 Recipe of the Month

"Ever had a nasty case of the hiccups that just won't quit? I have! A friend once shared her favorite method with me, and its been so helpful when nothing else works - it seems only fair that I share it with your readers!

Just take a paper bag, and place a drop of Chamomile Oil inside. Then cover your nose and mouth with the bag, and breath normally. Keep doing this until your hiccups are gone!"

Thanks to Annette for her remedy!
