Spring Mushroom Season!

 

Check out this huge, gorgeous Oyster mushroom I found with my Dad!  So yummy sauteed with butter, garlic and wild nettles!

We found it growing on the side of a dying cottonwood tree in a wetland near my parents' house.

Hot damn, it was tasty!

It's so great to have such talented friends.  I've been putting in lots of work getting everything ready to launch, and I couldn't have done it without the help of my beautiful tribe of artsy, brilliant loved ones.  Thank you!

The AstraLux Soundtrack

The winter line of herbal skin care products is bathed in good music.  Certain albums called to be played on repeat as I dreamed up recipes, whirred up practice batches in the kitchen and filled containers with the final product.

A few of the star players:

Dark Side of the Moon, by Pink Floyd

Engravings, by Forest Swords

Fleetmac Wood, Vol II (a remix by a DJ collective focused on Fleetwood Mac. You'll especially love it if, like me, you're an epic Stevie Nicks fan)

The Moon Rang Like a Bell, by Hundred Waters. Here is a pic from their amazing show this summer at Mississippi Studios:
