Interview with Laney Crowell
What is your favorite way to unwind at home?
live for a long, hot, no deadline bath. It doesn't happen often, but when it does I load it up with Epsom salts, aromatherapy oils, and I always light a non-toxic candle. I love a face mask and sometimes I'll do more than one. If I can, I'll meditate, or read for a bit, or listen to some relaxing music.What do you like to keep on your kitchen countertop, or "kitchen shelfie"?
My Brightland olive oil, Cap Beauty Himalayan Salt, a wooden pepper grinder and my collection of wooden spoons from Nicky Kehoe.What does living in a golden state mean to you?
Living judgment freeIf you could host a dinner party at home and invite 3 guests, who would they be, what would you serve and what music would play in the background?
This is a really tough question. I'm going to start with the menu. I make a great hanger steak that I cook in my cast iron skillet. I like to pair it with a garlic potato mash and a healthy Caesar salad. I always make my cashew butter cookies for dessert. The whole meal is grain-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free and I can make it dairy-free as well. Here's the amazing cookie recipe! For music, I like to put on a rainy day jazz playlist on Spotify. Admittedly music isn't my strong suit so I like a pre-made playlist that doesn't compete with conversation and instills a chill vibe. Pre-guest arrival, I like to listen to Maggie Rogers while I cook. For guests, I'm going to have 2 dinners. One with my family: my grandmother (who I was named after), my Aunt Isabella (who I was also named after - Isabella is my middle name), and my daughter Isabella Sage. This dinner will start at 5:30 pm and we'll all be in bed by 9. Maybe 10 if we get crazy and cuddle on the couch after with tea. The second is going to be a dinner with people I've never met before and we're going to stay up late drinking whiskey and sitting in the backyard. Hopefully, someone will bring a guitar: Maggie Rogers, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Amy Schumer.
