I realize that I have become dependent on garlic when I roast my vegetables, so I thought I would try something without it. I had some things already in my refrigerator and decided to look for a recipe to put them together.
Here is what you are going to need: butternut squash, shallots, olive oil, brown sugar, salt and pepper.
5 Shallots quartered lengthwise
2 cups of diced Butternut Squash
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Mix it all up!
I used a regular baking sheet and put it in a single layer.
I pu... Continue Reading

I am finally making progress in my decorating! I started with the entryway and thought I would give you a step by step. Ironically, decorating the entryway in my home is one of my favorite things for Christmas. It starts out as a perfectly nice everyday entryway…
…but ends up being really stunning. I started by using the new Bethlehem Lights garland all the way up the stairs. Then I added the beaded fruit garland on the long stretches of the green garland and used the beaded fruit teardrops where they come up to attach to the railing.
The beaded fruit garland and tea... Continue Reading

I love roasted butternut squash, and last week I loved the Swiss Chard tart. So I thought I would try a Roasted Butternut Squash Tart!
First I cut up about 1 pound of Butternut Squash into cubes. Then added 1 Red Onion, cut in large pieces.
I used the leaves of about 5 branches of Rosemary.
I chopped them fine and added them to the squash.
I peeled the cloves of one head of garlic, and cut each clove into slices. Adding those:
I added Balsamic Vinegar
Then tossed it in Olive Oil and Sea Salt
Put it on a cookie sheet
And baked it at 400° for 30 minutes
Ne... Continue Reading

I found this recipe for Rustic Chard, Potato, and Goat Cheese Tart in my Cooking Light magazine. I made it easier but loved the way it turned out!

1 large egg white
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Remove the stems from the chard leaves. Chop up the leaves and stems separately. Set a large skillet over medium-high heat and sauté 1 cup of chard... Continue Reading

One of the things that makes the house look festive is having people over and setting the table for a party. One of the best ways to make your house look festive--without people--is setting the table anyway! By making your table look like an event, the entire house looks like you're ready to entertain. You don't have to buy all new dishes, just use what you have and bring in Christmas decorations. We decided to put together a video to give you some tips on how to do it. I think if you want to make your Christmas decorating extend beyond your tree, this will be very helpful. :-)
See you at 9... Continue Reading

Today I decided to try something new in the kitchen. (After visiting Alberti and hearing how he does blogs on his recipes, I thought I would try it too).
I saw a number of videos on YouTube about making pizza crust with cauliflower, so I decided to try it! I looked at a number of different versions, decided what I needed, and went to the grocery store.
So then I put all of the ingredients together as you see here. Ignore the chicken, I changed my mind on that! I started by cutting up a while head of cauliflower and "riced" it in the Vitamix. (This was my first time trying it. I did a... Continue Reading

Every woman needs a great hobo in her handbag wardrobe. This is the last time I will get to be with you for a handbag Today’s Special Value® from the G.I.L.I.(TM) line, and I am so proud of this bag! I have found that great hobos are hard to find. Most of them tend to be either too generic for my taste, or too geared towards teenagers. This is a great hobo in seven different options. The design of this bag means that you can carry a little in it or a lot. It will look beautiful both ways. The contrast handle, the tassel, and the finish of the bag make it look more special, high-end, ... Continue Reading

Yesterday, Courtney and I had the pleasure of being invited to Mark Zunino's new bridal collection at Kleinfeld's in New York. I think Mark Zunino is one of the most talented designers I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He has a way of making things that compliment a women's figure and bring out her beauty. His bridal collection will make you want to get married or renew your vows just because you want to wear the dress! The workmanship and detail on these dresses is amazing. They are ethereal and beautiful and striking all at the same time. I couldn't take enough pictures because the dr... Continue Reading

23 years ago I got my first job in television shopping. It wasn't something that I always knew I wanted to do, it was something I was lucky enough to fall into because I really needed a job! Ironically, it suits my skills very well. I love to shop and I love talking to people . Over my last 20 years at QVC I have had the most amazing opportunities met the most wonderful people and gone to the most beautiful places. I cannot tell you how lucky I feel. But there comes a time when you have done what you can do and it is time to see what else there is. And that is where I am. After a lot... Continue Reading
