What's your signature Labor Day dish?

Last Reply by Ginadawn 1409609586.803 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities

It's hard to believe this is the last official weekend of summer. It seems to me, the older I get, the faster time goes by. Wasn't it just yesterday that we celebrated Memorial Day? And now it's already time for another holiday ....... Labor Day.I am definitely not complaining; I always look forward to Labor Day. Our neighborhood throws an annual block party and it is always a great time for both the young and the well, not so young. We all seem to lead such busy lives and get so involved with our own families, we rarely have time to keep up with the daily ins and outs of our neighbors. They ... Continue Reading

Mary Beth's Menu - Freezer Corn

Last Reply by leelee01 1408366193.367 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities

Freezer Corn 1 pound butter 22 cups corn (approx. 40 ears) 1 pint half & half 1 teaspoon salt Husk the corn and remove the silk.  Carefully cut the kernels off the ears.  (Do not boil or blanch first.)  Mix all ingredients together (you will need at least an 8-qt container or equivalent) and bake in oven at 300 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool, package and freeze. Freezer-type baggies work great or any type of freezer container. Now, you can enjoy "fresh" corn even when it's not in season. I like to freeze both individual and family-size portio... Continue Reading

A"peel"ing Beauty

Last Reply by Texas Chica 1408060342.317 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Beauty Banter, Beauty's Best Gifts, Hosts & Personalities

As we age, it's only natural for the cellular turnover rate to slow down. Plus, the summer sun and heat can also take a toll on the skin, including the face. So, what better way to boost a skincare routine than with an at-home peel? Sure, we can go to a day spa and have a peel professionally done and boy, getting pampered does feel wonderful. However, finding the time and the money is not always feasible. I may have gone once in the last five years.   Now with science and QVC, peels can be done in the privacy of our homes at a reasonable price in a short amount of time. I am really n...

It's Back to School for Ryan Roe

Last Reply by vickybeadlady 1408541597.817 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Fashion Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

Mark and I are equally proud of all four of our children; however, the focus at the moment, is on our youngest son, Ryan. Ryan recently graduated from high-school with straight A's and will soon be off to college.  The Teenager's Prayer hangs in our home. Back in the day, our boys loved Thomas the Tank Engine. In this photo I remember they were making a train! It was a miracle we captured this shot with all 4 of our children with the same pose. Unfortunately, since we lived so far away from my parents and had our hands full with children and work, we did not get to visit as oft... Continue Reading
