Musician Allison Crowe, concert and recording phenomenon, when not on the road, also creates by home-cooking -- sharing off-stage recipes and reflections in her "7 Thumbs Up" blog - "A Celebration of Life, Love and Food". http://7thumbsup.wordpress.com
Life is a bowl of cherries - macerated. So far, on the "7 Thumbs Up" blog: there's recipes for: Rainbow Cake, X Box Cake, a Super Meat Boy cake, Caffeinated Triple-Bypass Brownies, an Eggless Mocha Cake, Pumpkin Gnocchi, Roasted Potato Pizza, Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Midnight Mac'n'Cheese, Tomato Quinoa Bread, Baked Salmon with Quinoa and Veggies, Citrusy Hoisin Chicken Lettuce Wraps, plus Rosemary Bread and Toutons.
The music here is a dash of Allison at sound-check, bootlegged from a Thanksgiving Day concert. Fittingly, the soundman on this occasion surprised us by wheeling over, and flipping the top on, the unusual housing for his mixing board -- a bbq grill.
