Olga Brow Studio

How to get sultry brows? One of the hottest trends, maybe thanks to Kim Kardashian, is to have thick, perfectly shaped eyebrows. It's definitely what frames the eyes and face, so getting your eyebrows wrong can be a big mistake. One of the most sought after brow specialists, a gal whose clientele actually fly in from LA to see her, is right here in the Valley. We spend a morning with Olga Zelek, a "Brow Goddess" and owner of Olga Brow Studio in Scottsdale to get a lesson on how to get perfectly-shaped brows. She shows us a look for men, what to do with thick, unruly brows and what the fix is for thin, whispy brows. www.OlgaBrowStudio.com

Corn Season

July is National Grilling Month not only is elotes grilled, but a perfect side-dish to any family bar-b-que.

We're nearing the end of corn season, so it's a perfect way to take full advantage of the fresh produce and change up the standard grilled/boiled corn on the cob you've been eating all summer 

According to the Arizona Farm Bureau, AZ Corn season runs late May to Mid-July in Central AZ and harvest begins in July in the northern and southern parts of the state with the season in those areas running through September so it's either to end or the start of the season depending on how you look at it.

With corn season in full swing the Golf Club of Estrella would like to offer your viewers two recipes that blow the standard boiled or grilled corn on the cob out of the water - Elotes and Chilaquiles Con Esquites.  If you are interested, we can also share recipes for the red and/or green salsa that goes with them. 
    
Elotes, which translates to corn on the cob, is a common traditional Mexican dish usually sold (on a stick or with the husk pulled back to fashion a handle) by street vendors in Southern Mexico, but Elotes can be found in many local stores and restaurants. It is commonly served with various combinations of lime or lemon juice, chile powders, crema or mayonnaise and cheese. 

  •     12 Ears Sweet Corn
  •     6 Limes
  •     24 oz Mayonnaise or Crema
  •     1 1/2 lbs. Cotija Cheese
  •     Cayenne Pepper
  •     Salt

Carefully pull back the husks all the way to the base of the cob and remove the corn silk. Remove one of the soft inner layers of husk and tear it in half lengthwise. 

Tie ends tightly and fashion a bow around the husk. Be sure to tie them tight or they may loosen when cooking.

Boil corn in a large stock pot until tender

Finish quickly on the grill for a bit of char

Top the corn with the lime juice, mayo and seasonings immediately

Cover with a generous hand of Cotija and serve hot

Serves 12

Chilaquiles with Corn is another traditional dish commonly found in Arizona. Usually a breakfast dish, this is most often cooked at home and regional variations on this dish can be as wide-spread as breakfast dishes in the U.S. It is most often made with fried tortilla chips that have been soaked in warm salsa and topped with eggs or sometimes pork or shredded chicken we use corn and eggs and cheese.

Using restaurant style bagged tortilla chips can be a convenient time saver and works just as well, if not better, than homemade.

  •     1 Bag Restaurant Style Corn Tortilla Chips 
  •     Red or Green Salsa
  •     2 Dozen Eggs
  •     12 Ears of cooked corn, slightly charred, cobs removed 
  •     6 Limes
  •     1 1/2 lbs. Cotija Cheese 
  •     Cayenne Pepper 
  •     Salt

Heat salsa and toss it with chips in a large bowl, coating thoroughly

Fry Eggs to order - over medium works well for this

Decorate plate with a bit of salsa and plate chips in the center

In another medium bowl, toss the corn with the juice of three of the limes, add salt and mayo - mix well

Place fried eggs on chips and top with corn mixture

Add a dash of Cayenne Pepper and a heavy hand of Cotija Cheese

Serve with a Lime wedge.

Serves 12

Expect More Arizona joins us with their top five tips for getting kids ready for back to school.

Our tips revolve around re-establishing routines (bedtime, reading time, etc.), communicating about goals and expectations for the year (homework before video games, behavior, etc.), creating a quiet place for homework, and encouraging learning at home.

- What an ideal homework space might look like (we could find a photo, or potentially turn a piece of your studio into a homework space)

- A visual representation of a pre-back-to-school schedule (using a hanging calendar, or small white board, similar to what many families use)

- Quick-read books that students can finish before school starts

- An array of health breakfast/snack foods 

- Visuals of parent guides that outline what students in each grade are learning
