You know what the first day of Spring brought to PA this year? Snow! And even though I’m a sucker for a watching a pretty snowfall outside my kitchen window, even I was feeling a little impatient. Enough already, Winter. Make way for Spring!
The good news is, all I have to do is turn my back on my kitchen window and take a look around my kitchen to get a glimpse of Spring in full bloom. I’m a big believer that happiness starts in the kitchen. And nothing makes me happier than filling my home with signs of Spring…even if Mother Nature is taking her sweet old time.
Want to j... Continue Reading

I woke up this morning with that happy, almost giddy little feeling…it’s my birthday! No matter how many candles are on my cake, I hope I’ll never outgrow feeling like an excited little kid on my birthday. Because there’s nothing better than waking up feeling super special, before you even get out of bed. Like the whole day is the perfect present, just waiting to be opened.
I think I get so excited about my birthday because my mom, Gail, always made the day so special. Not just the day…when it came to birthdays, my mom was a big believer in stretching out the c... Continue Reading

Did someone say Makeover? No matter what kind of makeover it is – beauty, fashion, décor, recipes – count me in! I’m a sucker for before/after pix, paint chips, fabric swatches, and – best of all – the big reveal.
The only downside to makeover mania is that it’s so easy to get excited about fun project, then lose steam mid-makeover if it stretches out too long. As a designer, I’ve gotten really good at making big and beautiful changes happen fast. That’s why I was so excited to sit down with my friend Jill Bauer recently and... Continue Reading

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you’re reading this snuggled up somewhere cozy, enjoying some well-deserved post-holiday R&R!
Now that the holiday parties and New Year’s festivities are behind us, it’s all about the resolutions, right?
Hmmm…For me, that answer depends on a lot of things.
I do love the feeling of starting fresh in a new year. Whether it’s cleaning out my closet, organizing my kitchen or researching healthy meal options, it just comes a little easier when I know I have the whole year ahead of me.
But…it’s also a little too ea... Continue Reading

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.

Move over, summer…Autumn is definitely on its way!
And, just in time, QVC has new and special offers on temp-tations as part of the Your Fall Kitchen Cook Event. So you’ll be fully stocked with everything you need to make the most of fall flavors! Like this brand ne... Continue Reading

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
