  1. Chef Debbie! Is there a way to purchase your botanicals (lavender lip gloss particularly) on line? I’m in San Diego, California. I received a sample of your lip gloss at one of your classes and would like more, please!

    1. Hi Martha-Elizabeth,
      Yes, I’d be happy to send you some lip balm. My shopping cart isn’t working properly at the moment but if you send me a note to : info@debskitchen.com, I can send you a paypal invoice and I’ll ship what you like for free.
      Thanks for asking!

  2. Hi Debbi,

    LOVE your website! Not to stalk you, but I saw your post on the Edison Park site with your butterflies- I just got plot 121 , been waiting four years and I am super excited yet don’t know where to start, a little overwhelmed on how to get off on the right track with soil prepping, planting, maintaining, and a fence. Do you have any recommendations? Also, I’d be interested in attending your cooking classes, I lived in SF and miss the authenticness of your sort of recipes.


    1. Hi Jennifer~

      Thanks so much! I teach at Temecula Olive Oil Tasting Room on Main St. in Seal Beach and I list all the classes under classes and/or blog, we’d love to have you join us! We have seats still available for the upcoming class on Sept 29th if you’d like to sign up, just call the store at (562) 296-5421!
      A couple of gardening books that might help you off to a good start is Square Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholomew, he has a no nonsense approach and I do recommend raised beds. First they are easier to plant and maintain, no double digging and all of that, Mel explains it in an easy way to follow. The other book that may help you is Organic Vegetable Gardening by Ogden Shepherd. I also encourage you to check out http://www.groworganic.com. They have tons of info and video’s on vegetable gardening and if you get stuck you can call them & they answer the phone! Good luck with gardening! And come learn how to use all those veggie’s you grow! See you soon!
