When I was young, decorating the tree was something we always looked forward to!! My brother and I always wanted to help hang ornaments, and mom was very careful in guiding us. Here are some of the tips she instilled in us right from the start.
Step 1: Know what you’re working with
Just like knowing your ingredients for baking a cake, you need to know the ingredients that are going to make your tree the centerpiece of your holiday. So first, I lay out all of the decorations by size and color so that I can visualize the overall theme of the tree. I used some spheres my... Continue Reading

Many of you have asked to see the way I decorate for the holidays so I decided to give you a sneak peek at what's to come.
Step 1 – Pick the perfect tree:
I found the perfect tree to compliment my family room. Because of my tall ceilings, I didn’t want it to take up the entire room, so I went with a 9 ft. Bethlehem Lights slim tree. I wanted to do a traditional look this year so I went with the all white tree option. I fell in love with it during the Lisa Robertson show and had to have it! Once I got the tree, I was so excited I had to put it up immediately!

I’ve been testing side recipes for Thanksgiving lately, and this one for roasted brussel sprouts was easy and delicious! I’m thinking it’s a definite for my Thanksgiving menu because it’s healthy, delicious, and adds some color to the table (gotta make it look good!). I hope you enjoy trying this one!
Here’s what you’ll need to make this recipe:
1 lb Bag of Brussel Sprouts
1 Red Onion
8 Cloves of Garlic
Salt and Pepper
A Pinch of Dried Rosemary
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Halve the brussel sprouts and g... Continue Reading

When I first met Lisa it was a mix of emotions. I was excited, scared, happy, nervous (I was sweating bullets), and ohhhh so apparently SHY! It was one of the few times in my life I couldn’t speak a peep! Then she smiled…and suddenly…I could be me again. We chatted, we laughed, and then we said our good nights. Lisa has a way about her. In an instant, she took away my fears and made me feel like I could fly!
That was a few years ago when I was a brand new guest at the Q. I didn’t get to see Lisa in person again until over a year later wh... Continue Reading

Living on the west coast, I never really had any cravings for “comfort food” beyond the occasional burger. My main staple foods were salmon, grilled chicken, spinach and kale – I know what you’re thinking – a little boring. Well, the change of seasons on the east coast certainly has me HUNGRY and feeling extra creative in the kitchen. I decided to try out a chicken pot pie and invited Lisa over to help me eat it!! Together we ate more than half of it!! I paired it with a simple kale salad which you’ll see in the pictures below. ... Continue Reading

When the weather gets cooler, there is nothing more satisfying than a hearty and savory meal to come home to. This Beef Stew recipe is one that I’ve been turning to for years to welcome family and friends in on a cold autumn night. What makes it perfect for Fall is that it incorporates some seasonal root vegetables like celery root, carrots and parsnips. I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do!
Fall Beef Stew
2 pounds beef stew meat (I use chuck roast) rolled in flour
2 carrots (sliced thick)
2 parsnips (sliced thick)
1 celery root (roughly cho... Continue Reading

My favorite part of an award show is the Red Carpet and seeing who wore what! These are some of my favorite looks from last night’s Customer Choice Beauty Awards. Who was your favorite look of the night?

On rainy days like today, I often want some comfort food - something to warm my belly and my soul! Well, this morning I woke up and ran out to get the simple ingredients for this very easy cabbage soup recipe my mother would make for me on days just like this! (Her version has a ham hock, but you can also use kielbasa, or go “no-meat” the way I did).
1 large onion
1 head of celery
2 cloves of garlic
A handful of fresh tomatoes
1 medium sized head of cabbage
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 can of diced tomatoes
64 oz vegetable stock
Salt, pepper, crushed red pepper&n... Continue Reading

I loved having the opportunity to catch up with Dr. Roshini Rajapaska (Dr. Raj) and giving you the chance to get to know her and her TULA products better. She will be on the Today program (again) Monday morning. As I told you in my last blog, she is a leader in her field and a recognized guru when it comes to seeing beauty with an “inside-out” approach. I hope you enjoy this interview with her!
Q) Dr. Raj, tell us about yourself and your practice.
A) I am a gastroenterologist and internist at NYU Medical Center in NYC - with a special interest in women's health. I als... Continue Reading

For me, fall really is one of the most charming seasons of the year! The leaves turning colors, the bounty of the harvest and even the crispness of the air just seem so inviting and “cozy” for me. I was invited to my neighbor’s house for dinner this weekend, and since we are celebrating “Back to Fall” (and peaches are in season) I decided to make my “Easy Fall Peach Cobbler” for dessert. I happened to find some beautiful peaches at the market so I used them, but you can use 2 cans of peaches as I’ve written below.
Two cans of ... Continue Reading
