All That Glitters…

Now that the holidays are finally over, my favorite time of year has arrived… Award Season! It kicks off with the 64th Annual Golden Globe® Awards on Monday, January 15th.

Last year, I was a guest Entertainment Reporter covering the Golden Globes on Alhurra Television, in Virginia. This year, back in LA, I'm throwing my own award-watching party at home. If you feel inclined to do the same, consider whipping up a Gold Standard. Word has it that this cocktail will be served all weekend in the Access Hollywood “STUFF YOU MUST...” Lounge at LA's Sofitel Hotel. (Even if you can’t get your hands on the Hollywood swag, you can still drink like a star!)

Meanwhile... ever wonder where to get edible gold leaf? Here is your answer!
