Red is...passion, danger, excitement, drama, power, heat, love, happiness...it is something different from person to person. Diana Vreeland had a red room, Christian Louboutin shoes have a signature red sole, and the red stripes on our American flag stand for courage.
I like red. It is not my favorite color. Or is it? I adore coral, melon, and salmon which in fact are members of the red family. I have very little red in my home, but the pop of red I do have is small, but sexy;Georgia O'Keeffe "At The Rodeo".
I put together below, a few "pops" of red to add to a home. From modern to beachy, fun to fabulous; a little goes a long way.
FIIIII-NA-LLLLLY! The final Style Board for the Pantone Color of the Year 2016 Series is a bit late due to my newbie status with Photoshop, I am still learning its nuances. While this room is not exactly to my standards, I need to move on to a new Style Board. I promise, over time, I will conquer Photoshop and provide you with FABULOUS STYLE BOARDS!

I came up with this super tasty vinaigrette to add to my Big Ass Salad repertoire. Not only is it a great salad accessory, but it can also be used for a stir fry sauce, spring roll dip, or marinade. I have used it for two salads; one with grilled salmon and one with grilled tuna. I have also tossed sliced sweet peppers with it for a quick n' easy appetizer.
SUPER TASTY ASIAN VINAIGRETTE
1 Small clove of garlic
1 Small piece, about 1" of ginger
2 T rice wine vinegar (I've been using the mango one)
1 T soy sauce
2 T extra virgin olive oil or grapeseed oil
1 T chopped cilantro
Grate garlic and ginger into a small bowl. Add vinegar and soy, whisk together. Slowly whisk in oil. Add cilantro.
