Earlier this year while I was on vacation, I had the best pancakes I had ever eaten. They were light and fluffy with just the right buttery, but not-too-sweet taste.
My pancake breakfast at the hotel on vacation
Those pancakes were clearly not from a box, so I set about trying to recreate the recipe. I tried several different ones. Some were too thick, some were too salty, some were too dry. I finally stumbled on a recipe that came pretty close to those pancakes that I had on vacation. Since it’s the weekend, I thought I’d share the recipe with you. Pancakes and AM Style sounds...

Within any given season, there are certain items in my wardrobe that get a lot of wear. I call them H.R.I.'s -- “Heavy Rotation Items”. They are the pieces in my closet that make it into the heavy rotation because, they’re versatile, appropriate, mix easily with other things, and I like the way they work for me. Now that November is here and transition dressing has morphed into full blown fall, I thought I’d share the handful of items that are my current H.R.I.'s.

Animal Print Pencil Skirt -- I ... Continue Reading

It’s homecoming week at my Alma Mater. It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since I graduated from Howard University.
Kim and me graduation day 1983
I found a post card that I wrote to my grandparents my first week at college. I wrote that “I liked my classes...” and that I “met a lot of nice people from all over the United States”. Washington, D.C. felt like I was a world away because I’d never been that far from home before.

My 7-year-old nephew sent me a Flat Stanley! If you don't know the story, it's a book about a boy who gets flattened by a bulletin board and gets mailed away on adventures. My nephew's 2nd grade class just finished the book and they mailed their own Flat Stanley's as a class assignment.
My task? -- return Flat Stanley to the class with proof of his adventures in Philadelphia. So, I took him to Independence Hall, the birthplace of the United States!
Where would you send Flat Stanley on an adventure?See you in the morning!Leah Continue Reading

Did you know over the last two decades FFANY (The Fashion Footwear Association of New York) raised over 40 million dollars for Breast Cancer Awareness and Research? Each year they host a gala and this year marked its 20th Anniversary. It was held at the magnificent Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City and because of my new, "Leah Loves Shoes" show, I was honored with an invitation.
I had the opportunity to meet many survivors and supporters. The event included a "Shoe Salon" filled with amazing shoes for sale with the proceeds to benefit FFANY's efforts. The entire evening was a s... Continue Reading

I joined my friends Jayne and Barb at a place called 'Painting with A Twist'. It's a studio where you paint your own "masterpieces" even if you've never painted before.
We had a fun time and I think our paintings turned out pretty well! :-)
What do you think?
Have you tried something new lately? I'm always interested in learning what others are doing and always open to new ideas.

My 7-year old nephew wanted a special meal when I was visiting earlier this week, which he so aptly named, “Dreakfast”. That’s what he calls it when he gets to have “breakfast” food for “dinner”. What he wanted for "Dreakfast" was crepes -- made with his own special ingredients from a recipe that my sister concocted.
So, I went to the kitchen and helped make them. It turns out, a Dreakfast of Crepe-ellas and Crepe-ons is pretty good!
2 cups flour
2 cups whole milk
3 tablespoons canola oil (or butter)
1 tablespoon s... Continue Reading

I LOVE my Marvelush scarf! It is so soft and cozy. I sure wish you could touch it through the screen, as it is almost impossible to describe just how soft the material feels. Here's a close-up picture to give you somewhat of an idea.
I always have a lot of fun deciding how to wear my scarves. Sometimes I'll wear them wrapped tightly around my neck with my winter coat -- other times I'll wear them draped loosely over a sweater or a shirt to add a pop of color. I’ve done the “euro-knot” and the “ascot”, and the simple “loop” is often m... Continue Reading

Today’s Cooking on Q event has me thinking about trying a few new recipes and revisiting a few “old” ones. Here is one of my recipes from many, many years ago. It was featured in our "Best of the Best from QVC Cookbook" we offered over ten years ago. It is no longer in print, but I will gladly share my contribution to the cookbook with you. I hope you like it. Do any of you remember the cookbook?
Chinese Chicken Salad
1/3 Cup vegetable oil
¼ Cup red wine vinegar
1/8 Cup sugar
1/8 Cup soy sauce
Mix all ingredients above and set aside. Pour over Ch... Continue Reading

I always look forward to sitting down with my “stack” of September issues of my favorite fashion and lifestyle magazines. The September books are usually hundreds of pages thick and loaded with ads, but always filled with all that’s new or re-invented in fashion.
I’ve developed a bit of a ritual in September. I settle into my comfy chair with a pen, paper, and 1.5 readers (I can’t read the print without them, when did that happen?) -- I put my feet up on the ottoman, and I dive in. Thumbing through the pages, themes, trends and color stories start to take shape... Continue Reading
