Every Christmas we have egg whites left over from baking, so we make forgotten cookies! This recipe has been a family favorite since my Mom started making them over 30 years ago. They always turn out perfectly in the Kitchenaid mixer. Enjoy hassle free baking, and flourless baking too!
Here is Deirdre at age 6 making cookies. Don't you just love the kitty and puppy jammies!
2 large egg whites, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
2/3 cup superfine granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Several drops ... Continue Reading

Thankful For Love!
My parents were married on November 25, 1948. My Mom, Ginny, was raised in Mahanoy City PA, and the nuptial Mass and reception were held in her home town. Her dress, ivory silk satin, came from New York City and she looked beautiful. My Dad, “Rudy” was turned out in morning attire looking so handsome! But the coolest thing about their wedding day was that it fell on Thanksgiving Day. They wanted to have all friends and family around them so instead of the typical weekend wedding, they chose Thanksgiving Day. The reception was a celebration of... Continue Reading

When Diamonique jewelry first came to QVC, I was a "baby" host still wet behind the ears. It was 1987 and we were a fledgling company. We decided to bring in a new type of simulated diamond that would be better than any other called Diamonique. There were copious meetings, training sessions and more. Finally I got to present it on air (the first was a one carat total weight ring set in 14k gold, J591. (That's the only item number I've ever remembered!) I thought I did a great job until my boss called me in and told me I had called it "Diamond-ique" for the entire sh... Continue Reading

I have loved Halloween ever since I can remember. Growing up in the 1960’s and 70’s, Halloween decorations were a lot harder to come by than all the options we have today. I remember going up into the attic to get down the one box of Halloween decorations we had. Since we would usually put them up about a week before the big day, the box would be cold from being up in the unheated space. We only had paper decorations, a jointed skeleton and scarecrow for the door, and a garland of Halloween characters for the fireplace. I think that’s why I love the retro Hallowee... Continue Reading

Everyone has a story of how their family or circle of friends have been affected by breast cancer. Each story is unique, and each story has a heroine at the heart of the matter. Our heroine in our family is my sister, Chrissy. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002. Her children were in middle school and she was caring for my daughters when I was at work. (My youngest was only a few months old). To this day, as she is an eleven year survivor, I remember her strength through the early days and beyond. The day she came over to tell me the news she had he... Continue Reading

Halloween is all about children, costumes, trick or treating, right? Sometimes I think I like the holiday more than my kids do! My Mom loved Halloween, and after making incredible costumes for us out of robes, old curtains, etc., she would put on a mask, a hat, and costume, and ring the doorbell pretending to be a trick or treater. She would have one of us fooled every year!
When I became a Mom I could not wait to dress the girls for Halloween. When my oldest daughter, Cara, was a baby, I had a blast indulging in adorable costumes for her. Then, the year she was ... Continue Reading

We love shoes! There's no getting around it. The other day I was thinking that there is something so special about them. I mean, we have other accessories that we love, but they somehow don't have the ability to transform you! Then I was watching a movie and shoes, once again, were a part of the heroine's story. It got me thinking how many times Hollywood has used shoes to make the movie. So, here's my informal list. Feel free to add your favorites too. Grab some popcorn and let's go to the movies!
The Wizard of Oz: Nobody wears glittery red heels quite like Dorot... Continue Reading

I’ll never forget the first time I met Jeanne Bice, the creator of the wonderful world of Quacker Factory. She was on with me on a Saturday morning fashion show and was nervous because it was her first big order, in 1995. I told her “no worries” we are going to sell out! We did, and from then on I was her “leprechaun.” We did so many shows together through the years, and after every one she would call me and say, “Hello, this is Jeanne Bice of the the Quacker Factory.” Then she would go on to thank me for something nice that had happened in our shows.&...

In my life I am always on the go! I loved carrying the Aimee Kestenberg tote with me through a week of adventures! I was drawn to it due to the beautiful colors, including my favorite shades of blue and green. It jazzed up even my most casual of outfits, and had lots of pockets to carry all my stuff and my daughter's things too! (they are always handing things to Mom!)
Day 1: You may have noticed a lot of “Purse-onality” lately at QVC and now it’s my turn. I happily chose the beautiful pebble leather tote by Aimee Kestenberg. I love its iridescen... Continue Reading

There is something kind of wonderful about the last days of summer. A little bittersweet, as we are saying goodbye to another summer, exciting because back to school is almost here, and relaxing because we know it’s the last chance to just enjoy the warm days and slightly cooler nights!
Growing up a few hours from the Jersey shore, the beach has always been part of our summers, and still is! My Dad was always teaching me something new, and one year he bought a tumbler from Sears so we could polish the stones we found on Sunset beach in Cape May, NJ. Then we would turn the tumbled stones... Continue Reading
