Selena's Favorites List

As a coach, it’s all about my clients’ agenda.  On this page, however, this is all about what I want and like!  Check out the links to these favorites of mine, and send me a message or post a comment below if you’re feeling this list!

Favorite fried clams:  Clam Box, Ipswich, MA–you must split the fisherman’s platter with you favorite seafood lover.

Favorite song about Clam Box:  Caixa dos Moluscos by Weisstronauts.  It sounds best played loudly in the car going 30 mph with the windows down on a warm summer day after visiting the Clam Box.

Favorite basic Indian cookbook: An Indian Housewife’s Recipe Book by Laxmi Khurana–not for the written word-challenged–no fancy pictures, just plain good cooking.

Favorite chef:  Jean George Vongerichten–you must try the tasting menu of his signature dishes at Jean George, NYC at least once.  Bring your favorite person along for the best sit-down service, ever!

Favorite summer dessert I made up:  Wyman’s of Maine’s Frozen Berries in cream (or milk) topped with a spoonful of your favorite yogurt.  This is better than ice cream, because you don’t even feel fat or gross afterwards; recipe approved by my husband and daughter.

My daughter’s favorite salad that I made up:  Apple-Avocado-Cilantro Salad.  Equal parts apple and ripe avocado chunks; as much fresh, chopped cilantro as you like; and mix with aged balsamic vinegar to taste.  A little sour, a little richness, a little sweet, a little oak-iness, and cilantro to keep it fresh.

Favorite bagged tea:  Yogi’s Super Antioxidant Green Tea.  Licorice keeps it tasting slightly sweet for 2 cups without any cream or sugar, and works well on cold and hot days.

Favorite skin products:  FAB’s Face Cleanser and Ultra Repair Cream.  Found them after decades of searching for something that would care for my super-sensitive skin, keep me clean, and not be smelly.  They’re priced very reasonably compared to some of the “systems” out there!

Favorite Boston tourist website:  BostonDiscoveryGuide.  Not just for out-of-towners, but also has a few tips for locals.

Favorite place to browse:  Cambridge Public Library, Main Branch.  It’s comfortable, beautiful and free.  Function and form.  I love it!

Favorite place to play music:  Sally O’Brien’s in Somerville, MA.  The audience is always ready to get up and dance, even when they’re not drunk.

Okay, back to food.

Favorite taco:  Olecito‘s Baja (shrimp) taco, with spicy mayo sauce.

Favorite BBQ: Actually, I have a few favorites, so you’ll have to ask me.
