Charity of the Month – Girls Rising
This nonprofit organization was created by the Sea Cliff-based all-female rock band, Antigone Rising, to empower and inspire girls and LGBTQ kids to pursue careers in STEAM fields.
Girls Rising uplifts kids and builds self-esteem by sharing personal stories at outreach workshops and live performances. Included at their workshops are inspirational special guests from other STEAM fields to create a panel of diversity. Girls Rising awards grants and scholarships to students in underserved school districts, and provides kids with opportunities through their Girls Rising Music Festival.
We agree with Girls Rising: girls and LGBTQ youth need to see strong role models they can emulate and identify with in positions of leadership. Girls Rising’s outreach workshops aim to do just that by bringing successful women and queer people of all ethnic backgrounds to their attention.

Originally calling for buttermilk, this tangy dressing substitutes Redwood Hill Farm’s plain kefir in this ranch dressing recipe. Nutrient-dense avocados lend a velvety texture and vibrant hue to the dressing. It can be used as a dip for raw vegetables, tortilla chips, or over salad greens!
It’s June Dairy Month and what better way to celebrate than with homemade cheese? Making your own cheese might seem intimidating, but this recipe for homemade ricotta cheese couldn’t be easier. There are seldom ingredients as versatile as ricotta with the ability to lean sweet or savory. In less than an hour, you’ll have the perfect base for lasagna, ricotta lemon pancakes, or even a cheesecake! With only a few ingredients, the quality of each will shine through. This spreadable cheese is equally at home dolloped on a grilled bread for bruschetta or folded into a crepe. Add it to your next charcuterie board and impress everyone with your homemade cheese!
With BBQ chicken, there is no need to complicate things. We suggest chicken legs for this recipe, which will feature drumsticks and thighs for a juicy, flavorful dish. Basting the chicken near the end of cooking time ensures great flavor without burning the sugars in the sauce. Use your favorite prepared barbecue sauce to make this a weeknight friendly meal. There’s no need to wait until the weekend to fire up the grill. And with this simple summer staple, you’ll surely be the grill master!
Make the most of strawberry season with this Easy Summer Trifle! By layering ripe berries (or your favorite summer fruit), poundcake, and lightly sweetened whipped cream, you create a stunning dessert centerpiece that can be made ahead of time. To make this recipe dairy-free, choose a vegan poundcake and make the whipped cream with coconut cream. Whichever whipped cream you make, be sure the ingredients are well-chilled before whipping! Garnish with mint and powdered sugar for an elegant summertime treat.
