About Me

My photo
This make-up artist and esthetician has a (bordering on unhealthy) addiction to all things beauty! No amount of eyeshadows or cream liners will ever be enough! I go giddy for all things girly. Lipgloss might not be able to heal the world, but it can lift a gal's spirits!

Fourth of July Recipes

Summer holidays in Baltimore just don't feel right without something involving crabs! If you're headed to a cookout & need to bring a dish- try one of these 2 fan favorites. I promise absolutely no guest will be crabby about it!

Summer Gazpacho Crab Soup {Souper Easy}

1/2 cup cucumbers

1 cup cherry tomatoes

1/4 cup yellow or green peppers

1/4 cup red onions

1/4 cup celery

1/4 cup pimento

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons wine vinegar

lump crab meat

Finely chop all ingredients, place in container & top with tomato or V8 Juice. Chill. Immediately before serving- top with a dollop of sour cream & lump crab meat! Deliciously refreshing for an outdoor soiree!


I don't know any one who does not adore hot crab dip. Frankly I want to make out with it. Here's another super easy appetizer to whip up that tastes sinfully rich!

Hot Crab Dip

8 ounces cream cheese

8 ounce sour cream

1/2 lemon squeezed

3 heaping tablespoons mayo

3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1 package shredded cheese(Parmesan or Montery Jack-divided)

1 pound crab meat

Using softened cream cheese, fold all ingredients together(using only half the cheese) & place in a baking dish. Top with remaining cheese & sprinkle with a little garlic salt. Bake for 20-25 mins at 350 degrees. Savor with your favorite carbs of choice! Needless to say this dish is not for the lactose intolerant- ha ha! So what are my Beauties up to for the holiday weekend? I hope it's a blast- complete with fireworks!

Peace. Love. Lipgloss. M
