May/June 2012 news

  • 12 May 12

I wanted you to know about 2 very cool things coming up. On Mother’s Day weekend (here in the states) on May 11, the film “Girl In Progress” will open. I have 4 songs in it. That’s kind of miraculous. I’m very excited! The movie stars Eva Mendes. And then, in June, another movie with a song of mine opens: “Magic Mike”, directed by Stephen Soderbergh and starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey. Also very exciting! The songs that are in the movies will also be on their soundtracks. Again, excited. In case you have a moment, I have updated my website with new pictures and colors and links to videos. Thank you Rachel Campbell ( for web design/layout and Heidi Ross ( for photos and artwork! And, to keep you updated on my world, I’m writing music for a play that will open here in LA in October. More on that as we get closer to October. And, I’m still writing and recording new, personal material. The kitten I found in September is doing great. We named her Wilma. She is now 10 months old. She likes to chase feathers and rip up paper. And, as you know, sometimes I include recipes with my newsletters. See below for the thing I’m most excited about now – it’s a recipe for sweet chili vinegar by Paul Qui (winner of 2012 Top Chef). Add it to veggies or put it on your salad. It makes eating veggies and salads way more exciting than usual! Sweet Chili Vinegar Mix 1 cup sugar (I don’t use quite so much sugar but the recipe calls for it), 1 cup white vinegar, ½ tsp. black pepper, 1 ½ tsp. crushed dried red pepper, ½ head garlic, minced in a saucepan and cook over low heat until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. It’s yummy, goes a long way and lasts a long time! Hope you’re having a lovely spring. Thanks for reading this far! beth
