2 Die 4 Chili

Started by QVC Editor in Kitchen & Food Talk, The Q We Love 1402070986.17

Hi there, Chili is a great year round meal. I like it in winter with a loaf of crusty bread, and in the summer with nacho chips. It’s perfect for a party because you can leave it on a warm burner on the stove or in a crock pot and let guests serve themselves. I admit that I usually make chili with a seasoning packet and a pound of ground beef for a quick meal. But for special occasions, I use this 2 Die 4 Chili recipe. My friend Tova Borgnine first shared this recipe with me in 2004. She got it from a dear friend of hers, C.V. Wood, Jr., an amusement park developer and the man who brou... Continue Reading

May 7 is National Roast Leg of Lamb Day

Last Reply by Justice4all 1398697444.3 | Started by QVC Editor in Kitchen & Food Talk, The Q We Love

Hi there, One of my favorite actresses is Sophia Loren. I first saw her in Marriage, Italian Style (1964) with Marcello Mastroianni. About 20 years ago a version that had been dubbed in English was on television. I taped it and watch it once a year. The quality isn’t great, and the movie hadn’t been formatted to fit TV screens, so most of the time I only see half of the actors’ faces! Recently I purchased the original Italian version (with subtitles) on DVD, but I prefer to watch the version I have on tape, bad though it is!    What does all this have to do wit...

Live Life to the Fallest

Last Reply by SchnauzerMommyNYC 1382362620.197 | Started by QVC Editor in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities

Hi there, The fall season is here and everywhere are pumpkins, colorful leaves, and corn stalks. This is one of my favorite times of year (the other being summer). I love when the days are a little chilly, but the sun is warm. The fall foliage can be breathtaking, and it inspires us to bring a little of the outdoors in. Last fall was the first time I decorated for the season. I bought a Bethlehem Lights Cornucopia for the coffee table. The LED lights are subtle enough that I can also use it as a centerpiece for my Thanksgiving dinner table. I bought several garlands of fall leaves an... Continue Reading
