Valentine’s Day holds a special place in my heart for obvious reasons, but did you know Mark and I actually met on Valentine’s Day? Yes indeed, 32 years ago this Friday and we were married just a little over one year later. And I can honestly say, I am just as much in love with him today, if not more, than I was more than three decades ago. Now, I’m not saying it is perfect, no marriage is, and it’s not always that crazy turn-your-stomach-upside-down kind of love after all these years. However, it is comfortable like your favorite blankie kind of love! He is my be... Continue Reading

Here's a Valentine's Menu consisting of a salad, stuffed mushrooms, pork chops and a coconut cake. I hope you enjoy it and remember, cooking should be fun, so experiment and let your creative side shine.
For the salad, I just used a spring mix and added cherry tomatoes and yellow peppers. I thought the colors worked really well together.

1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup green pepper (I used an orange pepper this time)
8 slices of bacon, cooked crispy and drained
4 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

I decided to make Evergreen Punch for the Big Game. The basic recipe is a terrific green color and is perfect for Christmas or St. Patrick's Day. However, today I added blueberries and mandarin oranges to the ice cubes so both team colors would be represented.
2 to 3 trays of ice cubes
1/2 gallon lime sherbet
6 liters chilled lemon-lime soda
Place ice cubes in a punch bowl, then add the cold soda and scoop in the sherbet. Serve with a ladle.
Get creative and add fruit to ice cubes the night before and/or use different flavors of sherbet, keeping in mind the colors mig... Continue Reading

Our "workshops" may be different, but the concept remains the same. An expert auto mechanic needs the right tools and training to make sure your car runs smoothly and safely. Just like a wood worker might need a lathe and proper air ventilation, a dentist needs a steady hand, good lighting and a sterile work area.
Whatever you do, your "workshop" needs to be filled with just the right "tools" to do what you need and want to do. And those tools can also make your "job" easier, more efficient and often times, more exciting,
My "workshop" at home is my kitchen and QVC helps me with having all o... Continue Reading

It's no secret that I love football! And even though "my team" (The Minnesota Vikings) are not a part of it, I am really looking forward to watching the Super Bowl next Sunday.
Mark and I love to have family and friends over to watch the game with us and of course, food is always a big part of the day. I generally do buffet style, because I would rather spend my day enjoying our company and the game than in the kitchen cooking and preparing. I usually make everything the day before and put everything out just before our guests arrive. Plus, buffets allow others to bring their favorite dishes ... Continue Reading
