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

I love to eat! Even more so, I love to eat meals that look great and that are easy to make! When I started watching QVC, one of my early purchases was a set of Temptations bake ware, because I felt that I needed something to help my “OK” kitchen skills look like “great chef” accomplishments! For example, the picture below with Lisa Gleason and how a beautiful Temptations plate made a simple salad look delish!
In the next couple of weeks, I’d love to share some of my favorite recipes that I use for both entertaining and just any old Monday night!

If you follow me on Facebook, Alberti Popaj QVC, you probably know that I was in Southampton last weekend shooting video content for our big Super Saturday event on 7/26/2014. Since I was going to be there for a few days, I decided to bring Prince Charming and Coco Chanel for some “fun in the sun!” Although we had a rigorous shooting schedule, we definitely had time to enjoy all that “The Hamptons” had to offer - from beautiful streets, to great shopping and restaurants; as well as wonderful people.
Here is a photo diary of our trip. From the photos I... Continue Reading

One of the greatest things about being a host at the Q is getting introduced to new and exciting ideas before they can be seen anywhere else. Such was the case when I met Dr. Roshini Rajapaska (Dr. Raj) and experienced her new skincare line called TULA. You might already know Dr. Raj because of her appearances on The TODAY Show, Dr. Oz, Katie Curic, etc etc etc … the list goes on and on (and on and on...). She is a leader in her field and a recognized guru when it comes to seeing beauty with an “inside-out” approach. She is also super friendly and has... Continue Reading

Let it be known that sometimes small changes can make the biggest difference in the way you see yourself, and how the world sees you! It doesn’t have to be a complete hair makeover (like the one I did for our Beauty Truth or Dare event…although I love the fabulous Sherry Shepard and her wigs)
Sometimes something as small as a change in your toothpaste to give you a SUPERSMILE, adjusting your foundation shade with TEMPTU, or maybe a change in your skincare routine can also foster lasting changes that help your overall appearance.
