Guest Blogger: De'Marja Patrick

Greetings everyone, it is a pleasure to inroduce a few of my interest on Aloha's blog. I have created the blog "Fashion takes to the street: sidewalk fashion," and what greater way to meet more people than to host a spot on a person's blog that not only represents fashion but rocks out, taking fashion to the streets each and everyday. A few things that you can expect on my blog are posts that spotlight some great fashion ideas from bloggers, professionals and more importanty people just like you and I. Some features that I have on my blog include posts from some of my favorite bloggers as their streetwear!! My blog host some weekly scheduled posts such as, "What's in your Purse," and "Streetwear fashionista of the week pick." Enjoy!!!

Taste this...

Salmon Ni├žoise Salad Serves 2 Salad: 2 salmon fillets, pan-seared in olive oil with a sprinkle of salt and pepper 2 cups mixed field greens 1 cup green beans, blanched in boiling water for 90 seconds and then chilled in an ice bath 4 baby potatoes (about 1 cup sliced potato), sliced, boiled until tender, drained, and cooled 6 baby Roma tomatoes, halved (or any tomatoes you like) 6-8 black good quality olives (such as Ni├žoise or Kalamata) 8 soft-boiled (or hard-boiled, if you prefer) quail eggs* Vinaigrette: 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (or 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice) 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard Pinch salt and pepper *If you can’t find quail’s eggs, you can use 2 hen’s eggs (1 per person, since 4 quail eggs equals about 1 hen’s egg). To soft boil the quail’s eggs, bring a small saucepan of water to a rolling boil. Carefully add the quail’s eggs and boil for 2 1/2 minutes. Transfer the eggs from the boiling water directly into an ice bath (a bowl of cold water filled with ice). Cool completely, then crack and peel, being a bit careful because the membrane between the egg white and shell is a little thicker than in a chicken’s egg. (To make medium-boiled quail’s eggs, boil for 3 minutes; for hard-boiled, boil 4 minutes. I used Simply Cooked’s guide on How to Cook Perfect Quail’s Eggs and it worked like a charm.) Arrange all salad components on two plates in any decorative way you like. Whisk together all ingredients for the vinaigrette in a small bowl and drizzle on top. Serve immediately, with fresh ground black pepper on top.
