Happy Hanukkah, everyone! I can’t think about Hanukkah without thinking of my dear friend Kathy Levine…and her KILLER kugel recipe. She used to bring in trays of this during the holidays when she was a host a QVC and I think I had seconds—and thirds every single year. I was thrilled when she kindly shared the recipe with me…and now I share it with you! Kathy’s Killer Kugel This recipe is prepared with the Temp-tations® Floral Lace 5-Piece "Pack & Go" Set with Tote (K39525). Ingredients: 1 lb fine (2") kosher noodles 1 qt milk 16 oz cottage chee...

Design Your Very Own Holiday Wreath

Started by Jill Bauer in Hosts & Personalities, Gift Tip Blogs, Holiday Advice 1418681290.64

Hi, everyone! I like to think of myself as a crafty person. I really enjoy creating my own projects...and I like to think I’m pretty good at it. But, I know there are lots of people who just aren’t crafty. They just don’t—or so they say—have that gene. Today, non-crafters, I’m talking to you. No, you may not have the creativity to dream up a beautiful handmade holiday wreath. But, if you’ve got a great place to start (which is where our pre-lit wreath by Ellen DeGeneres comes in) and some pictures to follow (courtesy of our friends in the blogger comm... Continue Reading

Christmas Terrarium - No Watering Required!

Last Reply by prophet 1418348253.7 | Started by Jill Bauer in Hosts & Personalities, Holiday Advice, Mom to Mom Blogs

Hi, everyone! I’ll bet all of you have made a gingerbread house at some point. (And if you haven’t, promise me you’ll fit it in before December 25…it’s SO much fun!) But what about a Christmas Terrarium? Isn’t that fun? Depending on how much time you have, you could make everything in this jar...including the gingerbread house. I didn’t have quite that much time, so I used an already-assembled house and figurines from the craft store. Here’s what else you’ll need to make this: Large glass jar 3 yard each of holiday ribbons of vari... Continue Reading

Flashback Friday: Stress-Free Holiday Entertaining

Last Reply by prophet 1418348689.833 | Started by Jill Bauer in Hosts & Personalities, Gift Tip Blogs, Holiday Advice

Hi, everyone! I thought I might take a little break from decorating to bring you today’s Flashback Friday post. I’m often asked for tips on how to make holiday entertaining a little easier...here’s my best advice: I can hardly believe it, but that video is now three years old…I feel like we just shot it! Anyway...getting some pre-made foods will forever be my go-to tip. I’ve done the make-everything-from-scratch-thing and I just prefer to enjoy my holiday instead of worrying about so many little details. In fact, I’ve already ordered our  family's ...

Christmas Cookie Ornaments!

Last Reply by blueskies 1418977328.857 | Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Holiday Advice

Hi, everyone! I know it’s Thursday—not my typical day to blog. But, when you’ve got something adorable to share, you just can’t wait! Last year—right after the holidays—I saw an idea for reindeer ornaments on Pinterest. I was so bummed I didn’t find it before the holidays, but Christmas comes every year...and it's Christmastime again. Time for my ornaments!   Do you see the colorful ornaments on and under the tree? We just dipped our cookies in some colorful chocolate and added some decorations. I think they look great. Here’s the c... Continue Reading

Pumpkin Smoothie—Delicious Any Time of Year!

Last Reply by prophet 1418349094.027 | Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Mom to Mom Blogs

Hi, everyone!   Besides the essentials like flour, sugar, and coffee, what are some of your pantry staples? Do you keep canned mushrooms and artichokes handy for an impromptu pizza? Maybe boxes of cake or brownie mix? Just-add-meat taco kits and refried beans? You’ll find all of that in my pantry on any given day. And, no matter the season, you’ll also find an ingredient that might be unusual for some: pumpkin puree.   I know what you’re thinking. Pumpkin pie in the spring or summer? Well, not quite. I do save some pumpkin recipes—especially pie—for ... Continue Reading
