Talk about a throwback…check out this picture of me and my Dad from my freshman year in college! I found this photo recently and it stirred up so many incredible memories. It perfectly captures the love and support I got from both my parents throughout my life. But it also brings me right back to the excitement of starting a new school year…and all the good stuff that went along with it.
It’s been quite some time since I headed back to school, myself. But I still use this time of year as an excuse to organize my life and stock up for the busy months ahead. It’s jus... Continue Reading

As we head into the last weeks of August, I may be in full-on summer mode, but it turns out Mother Nature has some other ideas in mind.

Get ready, get set…to fall in love with fall flavors all over again!
Thanks to some unexpectedly cool weather in our neck of the woods last week, I found myself reaching for my favorite cozy sweater…which got me thinking about fall…which got me all kinds of excited for this week’s Taste of Fall Cooking event at QVC!
To be fair, it doesn’t take much to get me excited about fall flavors. The things I like to cook best just taste better in the fall – ooey-gooey casseroles, cozy comfort foods and, of course, the kinds of desserts that make you want to find ... Continue Reading

Simply stepping into QVC these days is like walking in a winter wonderland. Busy little elves have been decking the halls for Christmas in July everywhere you look…and I absolutely love it!
You know how most kids count down to Christmas? Well, when I was little, I counted down to the day my family unpacked all of our holiday decorations with the same excitement. Christmas for me has always been as much about the buildup and prep as it is about the celebrations…which would explain why I love Christmas in July at QVC so much!
And this year, Christmas in July is even more exciti... Continue Reading

Do you get hit with the travel bug when the weather turns warm? I certainly do. And this summer, I’ve been blessed with some truly incredible opportunities to hit the open road.
From weekend trips to the beach, to a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Australia with my mom, Gail, I’ve seen some amazing things this summer. Spying a shark from a sea plane ride over the Great Barrier Reef goes down in my book as one of the greatest travel experiences ever!
But as much as I love to travel, it makes me appreciate coming home even more. Especially to my own kitchen.
When you see what I&rsquo... Continue Reading

You’ve heard me say plenty of times that we eat with our eyes first. But when it comes to my kitchen, I love to cook with my eyes, too!
That often means letting my eyes guide me to the most vibrant seasonal fruits and vegetables. There are times I’ve built a whole meal around that gorgeous soft green of new lettuce or the juicy red of a sun-ripened tomato straight from the garden.
But it also means surrounding myself with color in my kitchen. Because, ever since I was a little girl diving into a new 64-pack of crayons…color is what makes me happy. And I find food tastes be... Continue Reading

You know how it feels when you meet a person who just totally gets you? Well, I definitely do! Because from the first moment I met David Venable, it was like running into someone I’ve known my whole life. I just wanted to sit right down and split some mac and cheese with him.

We eat together, we laugh together, then we eat some more. Then we top it all off with some trivia! (Go ahead, David, just try and stump me... Continue Reading
