    Hi everyone! I just can’t believe fall is here! It really is one of my favorite times of the year. I just love all the fall colors, giant mum plants and the colors of all the changing leaves. Fall always reminds me of wonderful fall fabrics such as cashmere, tweeds, flannel and of course the luxury of real suede.

    My Today's Special Value - A234700 Dennis Basso Washable Suede Zip Front Jacket with Pockets - launching Monday, September 30th is the quintessential fall jacket - Rich autumn colors (Indigo, Black, Chocolate, Garnet, Deep Emerald and Platinum) zip front, sleek simple lines, a sporty elegant look and with a touch of practicality as it is machine washable. A must have for this season. The quality of the suede is butter soft and I know you will fall in love with the feel and the design. I look forward to hearing what you think.

    Hello, foodies…

    I felt a little silly last month. The In the Kitchen with David team sat down to plan out September's recipes, and a hoagie dip was proposed for this Sunday’s show. Well, I love hoagies. And subs. And heroes. And any variation of a big, fat sandwich stuffed with deli meat, mayo, and veggies. But, I hadn’t ever heard of a hoagie dip before.

    Did such a recipe already exist? How had I not thought of making a dip out of all those wonderful sandwich fixins’? Well, my trusty team quickly got me up to speed and we talked through a robust recipe. Then, with the help of my culinary team, we landed on a Hoagie Dip that I know will be your go-to dip at all those upcoming football and fall parties. (If it hasn’t been already!)


    Hoagie Dip

    Hoagie Dip in a Bread Bowl

    This recipe is prepared with the Prepology® 4-Piece Nonstick Knife Set with 4 Cutting Mats (K35540).
     
    Go to David's Recipe Item Page for the full list of items that David has used in his recipes.

    Ingredients:

    • 1/2 cup red onion, finely diced
    • 1/2 cup plum tomatoes, seeded and finely diced
    • 3 Pepperoncini, chopped (1-1/2 Tbsp juice reserved)
    • 1/4 cup dill pickle, finely diced
    • 4 cups iceberg lettuce, diced  
    • 4 oz Provolone, diced into 1/2" pieces
    • 4 oz Genoa salami, diced into 1/2" pieces
    • 4 oz ham, diced into 1/2" pieces
    • 4 oz roast turkey, diced into 1/2" pieces
    • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
    • 1-1/2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
    • 1-1/2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 1-1/2 tsp dried oregano
    • 1/2 tsp black pepper
    • 1 large round or long loaf of Italian bread
    • 2 6" hoagie rolls, cut into 1/4" slices (for serving)

     
    Directions:
     
    1. Add the onion, tomato, Pepperoncini, dill pickle, iceberg lettuce, Provolone, Genoa salami, ham, and the roast turkey to a large bowl and toss the ingredients to combine.
     
    2. Next, mix the mayonnaise, red wine vinegar, olive oil, Pepperoncini juice, dried oregano, and the black pepper in another medium-size bowl. Whisk the ingredients until well combined.
     
    3. Add the prepared dressing to the ingredients in the large bowl. Fold until the ingredients are evenly coated.
     
    4. Carve out the center of the bread loaf to make a bowl, and fill the center with the dip.
     
    5. Tear the carved-out center into bite-size pieces and serve with the dip. Serve the hoagie roll slices with the dip as well.

    So there you have it. Hoagie Dip at its finest. The learning process never ends, does it, foodies? Even though I’ve made a career out of cooking and entertaining, I’m still learning about new recipes, ingredients, and cooking tips every day. I hope you are, too. I hope you greet new challenges with an open mind. It’s how we grow!

    Speaking of challenges, have you ever made homemade bread? There’s nothing quite as comforting as the smell of fresh-baked bread wafting through your kitchen. While a rewarding process start-to-finish, I much prefer to enlist the help of a bread machine. Here’s an overview, if you’re new to this gadget. (Just think how tasty my Hoagie Dip would be in a homemade bread bowl!)



    Again, I used the Cook’s Essentials® Bread Maker in that video and it’s highly recommended by your foodie friends…it got 4.5 out of 5 stars on QVC.com. Here are the ingredients for a 1-lb loaf of classic white bread:

    Ingredients:

    • 3/4 cup warm water (80°F)
    • 4 tsp oil
    • 4 tsp sugar
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 2-1/4 cups bread flour
    • 1-1/2 tsp active dry yeast (or 1 tsp quick-rise or bread-maker yeast)


    You can’t go wrong with a classic white bread, foodies. But what would you say is your all-time favorite bread? Do you like a nutty multigrain? Honey wheat? Cinnamon-raisin bread? Or perhaps you love a crusty sourdough? I love reading your blog replies…please don’t hesitate to butter me up! I’ll see you Sunday at Noon ET.

    Keep it flavorful!
    —David

    P.S. While we’re on the subject, did you see our videos from America’s Test Kitchen this month? Those talented chefs gave us recipes for homemade peanut butter and apple butter. What perfect complements to homemade bread!

    Hello Friends – Patrick here! I’m thrilled to be back at QVC for our 4th Annual Quacker Factory Cookie Exchange Show! Jeanne loved to throw Cookie Exchange parties! That's why we started this annual tradition on QVC.

    Join me during our Quacker Cookie Exchange Show today, November 15th, at 9:00 AM ET for TWO hours of ‘delicious’ fun! I’ll be chatting right here and this blog and helping you “Catch the Quacker Christmas Spirit!”

    Speaking of traditions, my blog question for you today is: What is your most memorable holiday tradition?

    I remember mine! It was the thrill of getting to open “ONE” present on Christmas EVE! It was torture waiting for Christmas morning so one year my parents decided to let my brother and me open one of our gifts early! We got to do it every year after that! To this day, I still do! Here’s a picture of my brother and me (I’m on the left) on one of those wonderful Christmas Eves!

    So, please join Angel, Leah, and me at 9:00 AM this morning and let me know what your most memorable holiday traditions are…I’ll be reading some on air!

    Quacker hugs and love!

    Patrick

    Did you know Jeanne wrote in her best-selling book, Quacker Factory Christmas, that you should ‘Make EVERY day Christmas Day!’ and ‘Always Believe in the Magic?’

    Her philosophy definitely lives on at The Quacker Factory, and we ‘BELIEVE’ in the Magic of Christmas and love bringing that joy and sparkle to everything we do! So, I thought I’d share some tips we learned from Jeanne to ‘Keep the Spirit of Christmas’ going! 

    First…START EARLY! We never stop thinking about Christmas – in fact, our dynamic ‘Dream Team’ is already at work creating designs for NEXT Christmas!

    Next, THROW A COOKIE EXCHANGE PARTY! Jeanne loved this type of party. That’s why we started this annual tradition on QVC. She would even send out a ‘save the date’ invitation in July! So have your OWN party with all your best girlfriends! The key is asking everyone to bake a dozen cookies for each person coming and have them tell you what type of cookie they are each making to get the most variety! Speaking of cookies, Diane, our lovely artist from ‘Team Quacker,’ just made a batch of Jeanne’s famous ‘Snickerdoodle Cookies’ and decorated them with snowmen.  Jeanne loved making these when Tim and Lee were young!

    And…who doesn’t love Christmas tunes to get you in the spirit? CREATE A CAROLING PARTY! This tradition was a Bice family favorite. Jeanne and her friends would stroll through the neighborhood singing Christmas carols and stop at every house for refreshments! What fun!

    “THINKNG THRIFTY!” When budgets were a little tight, Jeanne used to make gift baskets centered around a theme. She’d fill them with simple, inexpensive items that were meaningful or helpful to the receiver! So get creative this year and use your imagination!

    Did you know Jeanne put up almost 20 trees every Christmas? Once she coined the ‘UNEXPECTED TREE.’ The story goes that one year she bought a sparkly ‘flocked’ tree but realized quickly that it seemed impossible to decorate! All the decorations got lost in that fluffy snow! So…Lee did the “unexpected” and started pulling wooden signs right off the walls and stuck them all over the tree! Hence the tradition began of hanging signs on trees!

    How will you ‘make EVERY day Christmas Day’?

    Don’t forget to tune in for our 4th Annual Quacker Factory Cookie Exchange Show tomorrow, November 15th, from 9 – 11 AM ET! Patrick will be chatting with you live during the show on the Quacker Factory blog!

    See you then!

    Rachael Ray

     

    We all wish we could have Rachael in the kitchen cooking with us. The food would taste better, we’d be more relaxed, and it would definitely be more fun!

    Fans wrote in to ask Rach for some of her best insider how-to’s. Here’s what she wants you to know before you whip up your next meal:

     

    1. How to Mix Unusual Ingredients

    Q: Do you have any tips on combining ingredients that people would never think to use together?
    A: I love adding bitter chocolate or coffee to chili, and cooking rice, grains or pasta in wine, then mixing in fresh grapes. Any mix of savory and sweet -- like a savory waffle with spicy syrup -- is good, too. Bottom line: Opposites attract!

     

    2. How to Cook in College

    Q: My dorm kitchen is limited to a toaster oven and a George Foreman grill. How I can make a good meal?  
    A: Panini, panini, panini! Also, you can marinate and grill chicken 1,000 ways for wraps and salads, plus the grill is great for quesadillas, fish and kebabs. In the toaster oven, try baked burritos.

     

    3. How to Make the Best Burgers

    Q: How do you grill a burger without drying it out?
    A: It’s not what you put on a burger, it’s what you put in it. If you stuff ingredients like veggies and herbs inside, then they create moisture for the meat. That’s the key.

     

    4. How to Replace a Missing Ingredient

    Q: What do you do when you're midway through making a recipe and realize you're missing an ingredient?  
    A: If I'm at my place in the country, I just have to improvise. If I'm in the city, though, I send my husband to the store!

     

    5. How to Keep Herbs Longer

    Q: I bought fresh basil and fresh rosemary at the farmers' market. How can I store herbs for short-term use and freeze them for long-term use?
    A: I never freeze fresh herbs. They don't taste the same after freezing to me at all. If I'm trying to use up garden finds like bushes of basil, I'll prepare pesto sauces and freeze the sauce rather than the whole herb. Day-to-day, I find that most herbs (especially rosemary) will last a couple of weeks if kept cold and dry. I buy basil at the last minute, the day I use it.

     

    6. How to Relax in the Kitchen

    Q: Do you ever have "off" days when even dishes you've made many times before just don't turn out right?  
    A: Nothing ever turns out exactly the same way twice, but I'm not looking for perfection in any part of my life -- especially in my food. I just appreciate that food has a mind of its own sometimes, and I go with the flow.

     

    Now that you've heard some of Rachael's quick tips, we'd love to hear some of yours! Comment below with some of your tips and tricks in the kitchen and tune in to QVC today to see Rachael and her 12-Piece Gradient Porcelain Enamel Cookware Set TSV

    Do you remember the last time you wrote a love note?  My husband and I used to scribble our affectionate words to each other on post it notes almost daily.  Sadly I can’t think of the last time I found one of those little yellow letters.  These days we occasionally text each other “I love you,” or something similar.  Lets be honest its not the same.  Its not that our love has left, its just that our time has.

    There has been even less time lately.  It’s been a busy end of summer and fall in our home.  For starters we left one to go to another.

    Our new, old house is a very, very old farm-house.  Built in 1800, it has charm oozing from its wood floors and doll-house rooms, but it needed a little “new.” So when we moved in we immediately remodeled a bathroom and two bedrooms. 

    Before

    After

    We took our little 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath and turned it into a 4 bedroom, 2 bath in about 30 days.  It was a disaster of a time. 

    Living in about 600 feet of the house at a time with two crazy kiddos was hard.  We were blessed with a gift from the in-laws that saved our sanity.  A huge swing set, unlike anything I’d ever seen. 

    My girls adore it and it got them outside non-stop during those first few hectic weeks.  The house will have little projects for years to come but at least now I feel like it is ours.

    The reason for the rush was my cousin came from the west coast to take a job at QVC, about 40 days after our move.  We insisted she stay with us while she got acclimated to the east coast.  So, we needed to have a room and bathroom for her. 

    We are so excited to have her for a while.  Finally family on the east coast! The girls love her and so do we. 

    She is a huge help with my overnight schedule and my husbands travel.  And now we are 3 adults, 2 kids and 2 dogs living in about 1400 square feet.  It’s snug but homey, and for the first time we have “land.”  A huge front and back yard with trees and room for our family to run!  Despite the outdoor space, the home is small.  Some questioned how we could fit in such a little place, but it was the right move for us.  I felt the Lord was telling us to sacrifice a bit.  We needed to save some money, and finally recover from 2009; the loss of employment and homes and the expense of adoption.  Were still crawling out of that disaster like so many Americans.

    Just weeks after my cousin moved in my parents took us to Mexico for my 36th birthday. I was so busy with work and the move and construction and learning how to live in the country (not easy for a city girl,) that I didn’t actually have a chance to get excited until I got on the plane.  The eight days was perfect.   

    The home they rented was insane gorgeous and we spent warm days and nights in the pool and marveling at the beauty of the island. 

    Not to mention non-stop food and drink.  The girls were in heaven.  They still ask to go back to the house in Mexico that we lived in before we moved to QVC, and I felt so at peace and calm for that week, doing nothing more than being mom and being me. 

    I spent lazy mornings swinging in a hammock, looking at the ocean with a sleeping 3 yr old on my chest.  I actually had thoughts again that didn’t include the logistics of being a full time working mom and wife and attempting to do both jobs perfectly.

    The break from life gave me a chance to start writing again.  I finished writing a book a couple months ago so I began writing a proposal to get it published, an idea that scares me and excites me at the same time.  I also started writing love notes again.  One to my husband, that I am not going to share with you, but also one to my girls that will go in their baby books.    

    10.29.13

    They are 3 & 4 and full of everything sweet and rotten and pure and loving.  At pre-school someone called her name -  Georgia - and my breath caught; tears in my eyes. That name, I still can’t believe she is mine. We always planed on a Grace, never thought we would be blessed with a second name to discover. The little sisters hug each other fiercely one small and brilliant one tall and creative.  It’s honestly easier to fall in love with Georgia; she is innocent and pure but loud and stubborn.  She is still baby like.  Grace was never baby like, always brilliant. She loves with every ounce of her feisty being but she challenges you to walk away from her, which no one ever could.  She is too adorable too witty, too perfectly beautiful.  A “no” is a challenge, she will always find a way that one.  And I know her way will always be back to me. We have arrived at a time when they are growing and becoming real people and my best friends.  I’ts not right.  I need to let them go little by little and be their mother not their friend, but I still crave every second of their time. We spend our mornings snuggling and we kiss 50 times a day.  Grace asks for besos, and hugs.  Her little heart beating so close to mine. We are a gorgeous little unit, the 3 of us.  I am so proud of us girls and so ridiculously in love.

    We do try and get away as often as we can.  Its what we save for, we have 1 car, a small house and we don’t crave a lot of stuff.  We crave escape.  It saves our sanity.  We seem to work so much and so hard.  Its not just the sun and sand and adventure, it’s the chance to escape the rush of every day life.  To take the time to breathe and be together and write love notes again.   So when’s the last time you wrote a love note?  To your partner, your kids, your Lord?  If you’re like us and it’s been longer than you can remember maybe today is the day.

    Have a blessed November and adoption awareness month!

    I actually wasn't planning on sharing a recipe today with the passing of my Dad on Thursday, but I remembered one of his favorites and quickly changed my mind. It's called, "Dad's Easy Meatloaf" and I sure hope you enjoy it. Dad, this one's for you!

    Dad's Easy Meatloaf 

    • 3 Pounds ground beef
    • 1 Cup quick oatmeal
    • 1 Cup cracker crumbs
    • 1 Can vegetable soup
    • 1 Can tomato sauce or tomato puree
    • 2 Tablespoons dried onions
    • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
    • 3 Eggs, slightly beaten
    • 1 Teaspoon salt
    • Ketchup

    Mix all ingredients, except for ketchup, and form in pan. Spread ketchup on top and bake for 1-1/2 hours at 350 degrees. Serve with your favorite sides. Suggested: mashed potatoes and corn.

    Counting our blessings,

    Mary Beth

  • 11/15/13--11:42: Make A Splash!
  • I love a red bag for the "pop" it adds to an outfit. With neutrals, it's an unexpected surprise. With classics like black, white or navy, it's a bold contrast.

    I have red bags in my personal wardrobe which range from "fire engine" to "Zinfandel". Red is definitely an attention-grabbing color -- so grab your red bag and make a splash!

     

    Be sure to check out the red bags during Dooney Days when everything is on EZ pay, and don't forget the Today's Special Value tonight at midnight.

    Enjoy!

  • 11/15/13--11:50: ‘Holiday Season!’
  • I just can't believe that it’s that time of year again – ‘Holiday Season!’ I just love it as much as the anticipation of summer when Memorial day is approaching. I love so many things about this time of year! As many of you know, I love to decorate our house for the Thanksgiving season and the day after I always move full speed ahead in full Christmas mode.

    We all have to be thank full so many things including our health and family and friends. When you hear the news of some of the tragedies going on around the world we must thank the good Lord for what we have.  Even in times when we think we are in a rough spot there is always a poor soul not as fortunate as us.

    This Thanksgiving we are celebrating out in Long Island at a friend’s house just a block from our house. Everyone is bringing something special. We’re bringing the turkey and making the famous ‘Basso Family Sausage Stuffing!’ I can only say YUM! (Here is the link to it on my Facebook page:http://on.fb.me/1eRC5fq.) We may also make a smaller turkey just to have in the house over the long weekend. Usually, we have Thanksgiving at our house, but I will be at QVC the Wednesday before starting at midnight…

    Are you ready? The most magnificent faux fur throw for the Today's Special Value. From my 20th Anniversary Platinum Collection, the largest throw I’ve ever offered (56” x 70”) in six gorgeous and luxurious colors that you will love --- they’re all so great I can’t pick a favorite!!  It is beautifully textured faux fur with a solid, to die for faux fur border!   A perfect gift to everyone from kids, college students, grandparents , newlyweds and the greatest couples gift ever. During the day I will have a few home shows with many great gift giving ideas. Affordable luxury and something for everyone on your list. Clearly, the faux fur throw will be on the top of your gift giving list - I know it’s on mine!

    This is my 20th year at QVC and I remember my very first show with the wonderful Jane Tracey on that December Saturday morning. Where has the time gone? I thank God to be well, working, happy and to be part of the QVC family and I hope I have been able to bring a little joy and happiness to you and your family in what I design for you. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Last year I received my most memorable holiday gift. After Hurricane Sandy struck, our beloved Jersey shore was destroyed and my house was badly flooded. Despite some issues with our home, my family and I were determined to still have a festive holiday season. When it was time for my boys to open their presents they asked if they could give them to hurricane victims. That brought me to tears. It was such a joy and a blessing to realize that I’m raising these two smart, generous, big-hearted boys. They’re truly better than any gift I could imagine!

    Weekend Recap:

                    I hope you had good weekend PM Stylers! Aaron was a brave soul this weekend :)  I invited him to attend a charity shopping event and we showed up to the party with him being one of the only guys there.  He was such a great sport though, and he’s starting to get the hint about shopping for the holiday’s early! Needless to say, I owed him one for that and we had a nice catch up dinner. 

                    I am so excited… Pebbles Graver is coming to spend the week with us and I cannot wait for her to have Aaron wrapped around her finger.  She’s is the cutest and tiniest little corgi, and I can’t wait to spoil her rotten!

                    Less than a week away until my mom and step-dad come visit me for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  Uh-oh… this means I better get to cleaning.  Now.   Do you have family coming in for the Holiday?

    PS… Here is a pic of the new baby my mom just adopted.  She’s three years old and has terrible cataracts but she is on the mend and getting better each day.  We are so happy to have her in the family!

    Beauty Obsession: Bobbi Brown Twilight Eye and Lip Palette A237069

                    One of my favorite things about the Holidays is all of the sparkle and shine.  It’s all about celebrating with your favorite collections of makeup, clothing, and accessories.  This is how I feel about this palette from Bobbi Brown.  What you’re looking at is a palette that will help you sparkle and shine.  This is all about you.  I love that is can be subtle or that you can build the drama.

                     For me, this collection is all about the eyes with an added bonus of 4 lip glosses.  These collections of 10 eyeshadows are light catching.  With three shimmer shades and two darker contouring shades, you can truly go from dusk till dawn with this collection.  I love that I can reach for this as a daytime look or add a little more of the darker colors to really make your eyes stand out. 

                    Think Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve with this palette.  Plus, it’s the perfect size to take with you anywhere.

    PS… check out my Facebook post tonight for PM Style and I’ll post a close-up of my Bobbi Brown look.

    PM STYLE

                    Here a sneak peak at two items I think you would love to spend the Holidays with.  One is casual yet makes a statement from Lori Goldstein and the other is from Joan; An elegant accessory to make your existent wardrobe shine. 

     

    Project Runway: Back to School and Unconventional. 

                    This challenge seemed near impossible at first!  When I think of Fashion, elementary school does not come to mind for inspiration. I think the biggest thing that surprised me was that the ENTIRE outfit was made out of school supplies.  I thought there would have been at least one fabric from Mood to come home with the designers! Ekk… I was on my toes the whole time! The materials the designers had to work with made me panic for them… No bend, no flexibility… but that’s why it’s All Stars; they make it work!

    I think the funniest thing to be said all night was Elena commenting on Irina’s dress. “Irina’s dress is my least favorite because I hate flowers, so mahhh!”  WHAT?!?!

    I loved Irina’s dress.  It reminded me of a perfume bottle.

    I was most impressed with Christopher’s dress because it had such meaning and WOW who would have thought you could have made a dress like that out of school supplies!

    I would have loved Korto’s dress if it had been a little longer.  The corset looked like it was well made, but the bottom of the dress fell apart for me.

    Elena makes a fierce constructed dress, but it feels the same as all of the other weeks combined.

    Jeffrey’s dress was such a comeback this week.  What a playful use of unconventional school supplies.  All of that lost its luster when I felt like I had to close my eyes to avoid seeing the models you know what! Ah! – No thank you!

    Viktor- I love any outfit with feathers.  I loved his dress, but part of me wonders what part of it he actually designed since Elena helped him redesign. 

    Mychael-I just don’t know how we can ever come back from a dress like that.  I feel so bad for you that your dress fell apart on you!

    Seth Aaron- I loved your kickball hat! Your look was playful and high fashion. 

    What did you think of this week’s ending?! I was happy to see they didn’t send anyone home- That was a tough challenge!  Who had your favorite look?

    Don’t forget to check out my ToGather collection as I pick out pieces that are inspired by each week’s challenge.  You can also check out more inspired pieces by checking out our Project Runway page here:

     

    That’s it for me, Have a great week!

    Hello, foodies…

    The In the Kitchen with David team has given you a little of everything in this month of “Family Favorites.” You’ve got Chicken Divan, a make-now-eat-whenever-you-want classic; Sticky Toffee Pudding, a Christmas Day classic; Grammie’s Noodle Soup, which you can really make any time during the winter months; Crunchy Buckeyes, which are bound to be the talk of that upcoming cookie exchange, and lastly, Plum Cake, another delicious dessert perfect for the holidays or any time of year.

    I’ve had so much fun learning about the team’s recipes and traditions—I work with a talented group of foodies! And, I’m thrilled that we’ve got two more recipes to go including this Wednesday’s feature: Broccoli-Corn Casserole. This tasty side comes to us from Senior Editor, Heather L., who oversees our brand page on QVC.com and handles a number of other tasks we throw her way! Heather, thanks for sharing the story behind this family favorite.

    Heather L

    You know, it’s funny. If you asked most people to share a special family recipe, chances are their first thought wouldn’t be broccoli. And can’t say I blame them. It’s a vegetable that just by mere mention can incite fear into adults and small children. But when I was asked to share, that’s exactly where my mind went. This Broccoli Corn Casserole is very near and dear to my family’s heart. Not only is it super delicious, but it’s graced our Thanksgivukkahtable (I’ll explain) for so many years, and has played a big part in turning our holiday meal into a true family tradition.

    I come from a pretty small Jewish brood. I have two brothers, but both of my parents are only children so we don’t have any aunts, uncles, or first cousins. Ironically enough, it wasn’t until my parents split that my family really took shape. I was six, and when my dad remarried a few years later, I acquired two stepbrothers, a stepsister, and a stepmom, Anita. We always thought of ourselves as the Brady Bunch.

    Because my stepsiblings were a bit older than my brothers and me, we started a Thanksgiving tradition pretty early on. They already had significant others, so instead of anyone having to choose between houses on the actual holiday, we always held Thanksgiving the Friday after and combined it with Hanukkah—hence, Thanksgivukkah. (This year, Hanukkah actually falls on that Friday, so it’s finally our time. Only took about 70,000 years.) It’s a nice two-for-one deal—we’re all together, all under one roof, enjoying all the Turkey Day tidings while opening silly Pollyanna gifts (another one of our traditions).

     Amidst all the dishes we prepare, the Broccoli Corn Casserole has always been a mainstay. It’s simple, savory, and sweet, with rich creamed corn and a toasty cornbread crunch, and makes the perfect side that, yes, even the kids will want seconds of. The recipe was Anita’s, and she made it for as long as I can remember. But just last year, in March 2012, Anita passed away—so I stepped up to the task. I know she’d be proud and say it’s just as good as hers (even though I know it’s not). But I’m not sure it matters. Because this dish carries a much deeper meaning—it’s a symbol of all the amazing love, laughter, and memories we’ve shared for so long on this day we created.

    So while it may be funny to talk about broccoli being so special, it just goes to show how much significance food can have. I’m sure most families can identify with having that one staple dish that the holidays just wouldn’t be the same without. And this recipe is ours. So go ahead and give it a try for your own holiday table…even if is (gasp) broccoli.

    Heather’s right. Broccoli may not be a favorite in your house, but once your kids (and all the other veggie-haters in your family) get a bite of this dish, it won’t ever be the same.

    Broccoli-Corn Casserole

    Broccoli-Corn Casserole

    Serves 10‒12

    This recipe is prepared using the KitchenAid 300-Watt 10-Speed Tilt-Head Stand Mixer (K37868).

    Go to David's Recipe Item Page for the full list of items that David has used in his recipes.

    Ingredients:

    • 6 Tbsp butter
    • 1-1/4 cup corn bread stuffing crumbs
    • 1 egg, slightly beaten
    • 2 (14.75-oz) cans creamed corn
    • 3 Tbsp onion, finely grated
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1/2 tsp pepper
    • 2 (10-oz) bags frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained well

    Directions:

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a 3-quart casserole with cooking spray.
    2. Melt the butter in a medium-size saucepan. Add 1 cup of the breadcrumbs to the saucepan and mix well.
    3. Mix the egg, corn, salt, pepper, and onion in a bowl. Fold in the broccoli and the breadcrumb mixture. Pour the entire mixture into the prepared casserole, and top with the remaining breadcrumbs.
    4. Bake for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

    Foodies, can’t you just picture that casserole next to a beautiful prime rib roast?

    Heather’s step-mom made broccoli a coveted treat. How do you get your family to eat their veggies? Do you make a spinach pie or cheese sauce that makes everything better? Maybe you make a casserole similar to Heather's? Share the recipe with me...and your fellow foodies! I’ll see you this Wednesday at 8pm ET.

    From our family to yours…keep it flavorful!
    —David

  • 11/18/13--13:23: Antonella took The Q Quiz!
  •  

    1. Favorite holiday?  

    Christmas

     

    2. Favorite holiday memory?         

    It is a memory that happens over and over every single year.  Christmas eve at my mom’s house with the whole family…and I mean “whole”!  All the aunts, uncles, cousins, children, grandchildren etc.  It is the best feeling to sit at one of the many tables and look to the left and to the right and see all of the people that I have loved all my life.

     

    3. Best advice for holiday entertaining?     

    Pre-prep everything as much as possible.

     

    4. Favorite holiday recipe?              

    Ma’s Apple Pie – recipe is on QVC.com

     

    5. Holliday party décor?                 

    I love candles and music to set the mood and lots of sparkly, glittery eye-catching decorations. (Shocking, right?! {#emotions_dlg.biggrin})

     

    6. Gift giving advice?                        

    “Think it Through”.  I always try to think of something special that happened between me and the person during the year, and I try to give a gift that reminds them of that special time.  For example, one of our Jewelry Buyer came to a Christmas party at my house and she loved my “Bliss Lights” that I used for decorating the front of my home.  She just bought a house and invited me to a housewarming party – and I took her a Bliss light as a gift.  She loved it!

     

    7. Favorite Christmas song?           

    The one about chestnuts roasting on an open fire….which one is that!??!  Oh yeah – Nat King Cole sings it… “The Christmas Song”!

     

    8. What’s on your wish list?          

    #1 – Happiness, Fulfillment and Joy for my family

    #2 – A nice BIG piece of BLING!!  {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

     

    9. When do you start decorating?

    At Thanksgiving, I put up my Bethlehem lights wreaths to make the house seem cozy and festive, but I don’t turn on the lights.  To me Thanksgiving is warm and welcoming and Christmas is lights and sparkle.

     

    10. Holiday attire?                

     “Keep it Simple”  Probably black head to toe with some sparkle and shine added – either with a cute sequin shell or I would use jewelry to elevate the look.  Unless you are asking about Christmas Morning – then it is definitely PJ’s and slippers – ALL DAY!

     

    11. Gifts: give or receive?   

    Give!  I get so excited seeing the person’s reaction!  And, as you all know, I am terrible at keeping secrets.  For a long time now, I have allowed my kids 3 hints about their gift – and I LOVE driving them crazy with it until the 25th!!

     

    12. Any holiday tradition?  

    My family always does the “7 Fishes” for dinner.  We also always go to Mass.  And my kids know that every single Christmas morning they get a brand new pair of PJ’s and a photo album of our Summer Vacation photos.

     

    13. I finish all my shopping… the 24th!  (Doesn’t everyone? {#emotions_dlg.biggrin})
