One of the most special times of the year for me is right now…. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years…. All wonderful opportunities to stop and be grateful for what we have, how far we have come in the last year and make all our grand plans for the coming one. The two biggest reasons I love this time – are family and food! It just wouldn’t be the holidays without being with the people that mean the world to me - and the food and drink that has become so much a part of our cherished memories.
For the Nester family, on Christmas Eve Morning, we a... Continue Reading

Last weekend I had some of my favorite girlfriends over for dinner. It was a blast!
Of course, I made my famous lasagna and a salad – and all those skinny little girls asked for little pieces of lasagna! Not in the NESTER house!!! :-) I cut all of them “slivers” ….. that would be an Italian “sliver” Wink, wink …. And then I told them if they didn’t have seconds, I would truly be offended! I’ll get some meat on their bones yet!!!
The good news is that lots of them aske... Continue Reading

Stopping by to share my Ma’s Apple Pie recipe with you – in case you still need a Thanksgiving dessert.
It's incredible – if I do say so myself! :-) When my sisters and I were very young, my Italian immigrant parents knew nothing of Thanksgiving, turkeys, pilgrims and apple pie. We had an apple tree in our back yard though and one of our neighbors taught my mom how to make this pie – in exchange for some of our apples. It was a WIN-WIN! Over the years, my mom has refined the recipe into the one I share with you toda... Continue Reading

Have you girls tried Mally’s gel nail system? I know what you’re thinking…it looks too hard, I’ll just use my regular stuff, why spend that money or another common one, I’ll just get them done!
Let me tell you why I LOVE this system! It’s super easy. I did this little photo shoot thing with some of the cute marketing girls and we just gabbed while I painted my nails (tough job, right?!). I can do this while I’m watching tv, catching up with Hope or while my husband’s watching tv and I’m not a big fan of the show
I have to keep my n... Continue Reading

There were 42 people at the last party I hosted... and that was JUST family, wow!! My "little Italian family" gatherings have grown through the years, due to new babies and new members, so little by little, I ended up with a crowd.
My big secret is PRE-PREP as much as possible. My daughter, Hope, knows that three days before a party, is crunch time. We clean the house, make sure we have all our dishes, glasses, utensils (spoons disappear at our house so I always have to go buy more), plan the meal and grocery shop. The day before the party, we pre-prep all the food. We do as much prep before ... Continue Reading

Fine Italian craftsmanship, elegant design, passion and pride—this pendant has it ALL! On one side, you see the high-end look of drusy quartz, and on the other side, you’re treated to a vision of AAA-quality labradorite. We basically get two necklaces for the price of one. Now that's a great value! This piece truly has it all—I'm loving the rich, swirling gold, I'm mesmerized by the dreamy look of the labradorite, and I'm dazzled by the drusy quartz.
All I can say is wow! I think I’m in love! This is going to be an awesome accent to any outfit for the holidays and b... Continue Reading

Okay I had the BEST time hanging out with some of these young girls on the social team. Seriously, they are the cutest. We laughed more than we worked I think?!?
I wanted to share this video with you. We took all of your questions that you asked on Facebook and Community and chose a bunch to answer. Let me know what you think, okay? YOU make my job FUN.
