    The annual awards season for television and film has just finished, but there is another red carpet season just starting. From now until May, hundreds of beauty innovators and product developers will be waiting to see if they have won a coveted Cosmetic Executive Women Insider's Choice Beauty Award.

    This award season kicks off with the CEW Product Demonstration, held each March in New York. It's been called the "world's biggest beauty isle."

    As a CEW member, I love going to see old friends and checking out new products. Here is Laura Geller working her magic.

     

    (pic of Giles from color wow.. Caption him. )

     

    This year, I was interviewed about the significance of the awards.

    Hundreds of skincare, hair care, makeup, fragrance, and body brands come to show their latest products. CEW members, who all work in the beauty industry, get to see, touch, and smell it all.

    I especially like seeing the new anti-aging devices. Here's the latest  from Tria.

    Now the voting starts! The CEW member voters all work in the beauty industry, so it is interesting to see what these experts consider to be the best new products.

    The results will be announced in May and then we will have a show with the winners on QVC this summer.  I'll keep you posted.

    Do you have a favorite new product? You can leave a comment here or chat with me about it on my Facebook page.

    We see you as an important member of our QVC family, which is why we want to help protect your personal information and give you peace of mind when shopping with us. To enhance your security, we're switching from a 4-digit PIN to a password on QVC.com and most QVC apps.

    If you have a QVC account, continue to sign in with your 4-digit PIN until you are prompted to create a password.

     

    If you wishto update your account now, pleaseCreate a New Password. Youmust first sign in using your email address and existing 4-digit PIN.

    Please keep in mind that, you’ll still need to use your 4-digit PIN when placing orders through Automated Ordering and Text Ordering, even after you have a password. However, once you have a password, your PIN will no longer work on QVC.com or the QVC apps.

    Here are answers to some common questions about this change:

    Why doesn’t my password work?
    In the past few weeks, we began the transition from 4-digit PIN to Password on QVC.com and most QVC Apps. Unless you’ve recently created a password for QVC, please use your 4-digit PIN when signing in. We’ll soon prompt you to create a password.

    If you have a QCard, please note that your QCard User ID and password are different than your QVC.com password.

    How do I create my Password?
    Easily create your password by visiting the Password page within My Account. When you are prompted to sign in, use your existing 4-digit PIN. Once successfully signed in, you can create a new password and security question.

    Why won’t the QVC iPhone/iPad app take my password?
    Updates are now available for both the QVC iPhone and QVC iPad apps to allow for sign in using your password. They can be downloaded from the app store.

    Do I need both a password and a 4-digit PIN to shop with QVC?
    A password will be used to shop or manage your account on QVC.com and QVC mobile apps. You’ll still need a 4-digit PIN for Automated Ordering via phone (800-345-1212) or Text Ordering.

    What should I do if my account is suspended?

    For your account protection, entering an incorrect 4-digit PIN or password too many times may result in account suspension.

We thank you for your patience and look forward to a smooth and easy transition so you feel completely comfortable when shopping with us.

    Hello my friends,

    It’s finally here.  After a sneak peek during the LIVE from the Red Carpet show, JAI John Hardy’s first figurative collection will make its debut next Tuesday, March 11th, during 3 hours of amazing new designs.  Since the day we launched JAI John Hardy, the exclusive John hardy Collection here on QVC, I have been asked countless times, ‘When are you going to launch a figurative collection?’

    When it came time to launch our first figurative collection for JAI, we wanted to make sure we brought you a collection that had unsurpassed craftsmanship, feminine sophistication, with both a universal meaning and timeless appeal.  After months of collaborations with our JAI team, it is with great pride that I introduce our new Croco Collection.

    While exploring a distant village in Northern Thailand, I learned of the Makara, a sea-creature in Hindu mythology.  Later that year, I discovered some breath-taking ruins and temples throughout Thailand that had various depictions of figurative crocodiles in both the architectural designs of the ancient temples and also in the local textiles.  These local discoveries inspired me to dive into the countless legends of the crocodile that can be found throughout history.  My research soon confirmed that the Croco should be our first figurative collection.

    Around the world, crocodiles are known as the keeper of knowledge, a symbol of maternal protection, one of the wisest animals to roam the earth with a clairvoyant ability to create balance and harmony in life.  They are survivors who have been around since time has been kept.  The Egyptians adorned them with gold and jewels.  Pharaohs were buried alongside mummified crocodiles for protection with the hope to have the wisdom of the crocodiles in their next lifetime.  Legend states that if you are looking for protection, balance in your life, or have unanswered questions, all one must do is seek the guidance of the crocodile.

    Our team of dedicated JAI craftsmen created the perfect design that embodies this wonderful inspiration.  They worked tirelessly to create a feminine romantic figurative design, reminiscent of the elegance from years past.  Soon they perfected a texturized crocodile motif that bore the story of the legend in our new signature Croco pattern.  These new Croco designs embody all that JAI stands for:  superb craftsmanship, attention to detail, and a respect for the cultures and traditions we encounter.

    Please join me on Tuesday, March 11th at 1am ET with Gabrielle Kerr and then again at 7pm ET with Jill Bauer as we introduce our new Croco Collection along with beautiful new designs from our gorgeous two tone Sukhothai Collection.

    Join me for the stories and fall in love with the designs.  Please take a moment to enjoy more behind the scenes from my travels at our JAI Jewelry Facebook page and our JAIjewelry_ instagram account.

    Safe Travels,

    Scott

  • 03/06/14--09:47: Women Who Inspire Me…
  • As I talk to women every day, I realize that we all have such amazing stories of life, love and loss. I realized that many women are incredibly talented and strong. We are chauffeurs to our children. We are care-givers to our parents and children. We are five-star chefs, doctors, organizers, bakers, referees, launderers, mothers, sisters, wives, lovers, and friends. I am always in awe of my female friends and family members, and I tell them, “I don’t know how you do it with careers, children, husbands, pets, and houses to run.” I could fill a library with those stories alone!

    I wanted to share a few stories about the women who truly inspire me. These women are not politicians, activists, professors, or celebrities; these are everyday women whose stories should be shared. 

    My sister Diane was a teenage mother. Our family helped her raise my gorgeous nephew Christopher throughout the years so she could finish high school. After she graduated, she decided to go right to work and not pursue any further education. After many years, she decided to go back to get her degree. At almost 50 years old, she now has a Bachelor’s degree, and I could not be more proud. To me, her decision to go back to school and start a new life and career took a lot of guts.

    My sisters - Vickie, me, Diane, Kim and our cousin Christy—who was always like a sister!


    My friend Mary, who works at QVC, has been fighting cancer for over 27 years. Luckily, she has been in remission for two years now—fantastic! She, too, has decided to go back to school to further her education – she is earning her Bachelor’s degree in Marketing & Sports Management as well as her Master’s & Doctorate in Physical Therapy. While working full-time and going to school, she has lost 300 pounds in just about five years. In addition to her busy schedule, she somehow finds the time to volunteer for numerous charities, including the Kidney Foundation, and has recently started fundraising for Autism Speaks. She also volunteers for Miss America's Outstanding Teen program. And she works for a friend who has a catering company part-time. Oh and by the way – she has walked SIX half marathons! I am exhausted just talking about her! What an incredible woman!! Here are her before and after photos—amazing!

    Mary’s “before” shot

    Mary’s “after” shot.  She said she is a work in progress.


    I wanted to also talk briefly about my Mother, Estle Smedley. She was the best Mom ever, and she had very little money to work with, mostly love. Our family constantly struggled with finances, and she and my father worked very hard to keep us clothed and fed. There were many times where we had no home phone and ran out of heating oil. There weren’t many “extras” in our world, but they certainly fulfilled our needs. In her later years, she struggled with major health problems—heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, and diabetes. After her second stroke, she became disabled—unable to drive, even read, which was one of her passions – many things we take for granted on a daily basis. But she always had a smile on her face, even while she was in constant pain. She didn’t want her girls to worry about her, so she was tough! I am honored to say that she raised me to be the woman I am today. She passed in 2003, and I miss her every day. She was my biggest fan.

     

    My Quacker friend Arlene suffered from breast cancer. She had a double mastectomy, and even with a drain in her side, she attended my surprise housewarming party—with presents. Even though she had just gone through such an invasive surgery, she attended the party with a huge smile on her face. Perhaps not a big deal to her—but it was a HUGE deal for me. I will never ever forget that moment. It still brings tears to my eyes! She is one of the most giving women I know. Always there to help and support all of her friends and family no matter what. And if you need someone to have your back, she will be there! Oh, by the way, she makes the best homemade spaghetti and gravy (Sauce to us non-Italians!), which she has promised to teach me how to make homemade spaghetti—I need to call her!!

    Me, Maria & Arlene on the Quacker Factory Trip to Branson in 2009.


    Then there is my best friend from high school, Susan. Where do I begin to tell her story? Susan was extremely close to her father, who passed away a few years ago, and to watch her go through that was just devastating. Then she had to endure her mother’s battle with cancer, which she eventually lost. Her grandmother who lived with her mother moved away to live with another relative, and finally she made the decision to divorce her husband of over fifteen years, all the while caring for her two children and working full-time. They sold their home and started packing to move to her new home with her kids. She inspires me because I watched her be so strong through all of this devastation, and she still can crack me up. She just amazed me over the years and especially throughout the last few years. I know she struggled. I know she did not want to lose her father, mother, or grandmother. I know it took her a long time to decide to get divorced. She was just so strong.

     

    One of the women who inspired me, and who most of you knew and loved as much as I, was Jeanne Bice. Jeanne was smart, funny, and a woman to be reckoned with. She had many careers throughout her life – store owner, Mother and Wife, radio host. But the career, which she did not start until later in life, was with the Quacker Factory on QVC. She inspired so many just by being herself; no holds barred, sweet, serious, tough, and gentle. Everyone wanted to go to her for advice!! And she gave it freely—even if it stung a time or two. But she inspried women who maybe did not think they were worthy because they wore a larger size. She inspired women of all ages to go out and celebrate everyday. When her brother and her best friend were diagnosed with cancer, she continuted to inspire women while appearing on QVC. No one outside of her inner circle even knew she was going through such hard emotional times. And even now when I am having a not so great day, I hear Jeanne in my ear saying, “The show must go on, sweetie.” Thank you, Jeanne, for all of the laughs, the hugs, and the inspiration.

    Jeanne & me at her home in Florida

    So I challenge you to find these incredible stories of the women in your life! They are there, everywhere we go. I believe that women should be better friends, that we should lift each other up, and support each other. Life is very, very short, and we are here to help each other. We are strong and beautiful and smart and capable! So go out there and spread sparkle everywhere you go!

    Until next time—Quack, Quack!

    Chicken broth
    1-1.5lb ground beef (or turkey)
    1 can black beans (drained/rinsed)
    1 can of diced tomatoes (drained/rinsed)

    -Once the meat is cooked add in beans, tomatoes, corn, jalapenos, onion, and garlic; stir
    -Then add spices and cilantro to taste

  • 03/06/14--11:42: The Geisha's Story
  • Hello, friends!

    I wanted to take a moment to share with you what I've learned about geisha in my time with them. Like many, I read the fictional novel that miscasts geisha as prostitutes. Although I knew the story was a work of fiction, it didn't occur to me that modern-day geisha are quite the opposite.

    A few fun facts about my geisha friends:

    • The word “geisha” translates to “person of art”—they train tirelessly in traditional dancing, performing ancient ceremonies, and playing instruments.
    • Geisha always believe there's something new to learn, so they train continuously until their retirement.
    • A geisha rehearses and performs throughout the week, taking only two days a month to rest, yet they're always vivacious and gracious.
    • In the west, we know geisha for their iconic makeup. In Japan, they're famous for the luminous skin that lies beneath. The Japanese actually have a name for the geisha’s skin: mochi hada, which refers to the soft, gleaming quality of baby’s skin.

    I was awed to learn of the geisha's rich history and elegant traditions and am excited to share their true story with you today.

    According to the local weatherman, we have had 15 winter storms this season. That sounds about right. I have been keeping track of the snow and ice storms by the number of times my daughters' schools have been cancelled. Two weeks ago, they finally went to school five days in a row for the first time since before Christmas! Then, last week, they were out again because of snow! At first we all loved it and they couldn't wait to sled and build snowmen.

     

     

    But, eventually the novelty of putting on 15 layers of clothing for 30 mins of playtime wore off and they started to spend way too much time watching TV.  The excessive screen time reached a peek when I found my oldest daughter in front of the television, playing a computer game, while simultaneously chatting with a friend over FaceTime. I took this picture to document the startling modern play date.

     

     

    "Enough!" I said. "There has to be something else you can do!" Both kids seemed shocked by the idea of getting off the couch. I challenged them.. If they could come up with an activity we could all do together or something that involved  creativity,  I didn't care if it made a mess or cost me yet more money in art and crafts supplies.

    Since then, snow days have gotten a lot more fun. We've baked cookies, played board games and had dance parties. In no particular order, here are some of the other highlights of the winter we will always remember as the "Polar Vortex".

    Nearly every night for weeks, the girls acted out scenes from the movie Frozen (fitting theme, I think!)   The cold never bothered them anyway!

    My youngest daughter made beaded bracelets.  I'm still finding them in my Dyson.

     

     

    My oldest daughter grew weary of making bracelets out of Rainbow Loom rubber bands (see my past Rainbow Loom Blog), so now she is making phone cases out of them.

     

    We painted. A lot.

     

     

    One morning, they cheered to be out of school, only to then play school for the entire day.

     

     

    But my favorite moment was when my youngest daughter donned a laundry bag, tied it with a dog toy and turned her room into a fashion runway.

     

     

    I'm thinking parts of this winter might not have been so terrible after all!

    I wanted to share the excitement of Nicole's prom and ask you for your memories too...

     

    The prom is very different these days than when I went to school...for the record I only went to my junior prom...my mom made my eyelet long gown and my date had me home by midnight..our prom was in the elementary school cafeteria, which the junior class decorated in the theme of "Color My World" with a paper rainbow...great memories from days gone by...

    Nicole's school only has a senior prom so every girl is hoping to be asked...Last week during a fund raiser for the senior class she had her prom dream come true...Her friend Adam had been hinting for a few weeks...he had her positioned in the front of the auditorium and with all of the students and parents watching he cleverly asked her...

    He said he was particularly good at math and proceeded to type PROM on his calculator as we all watched on the big screen...he then asked her to the prom and gave her the flowers!

     

    She gave him a big hug and replied YES! Cheers and tears erupted...

     

    I am sharing a sneak peak of her dress...we still need to find earrings and shoes...

     

    I love that the kids today go as friends and sometimes even in a group...our school is planning an after prom in hope that we can keep all of the kids safe for the prom...I promise to share more pictures on the day...The prom may be different in many ways but it is still a wonderful memory to play Cinderella for the night...

    Will you share your prom memories from your day or your daughter's or granddaughter's?

    Looking forward to sharing more memories...

    Hello, foodies…

    Many thanks to those of you who came to the Philadelphia Flower Show! The In the Kitchen with David team and I traveled there yesterday and I gave two cooking demonstrations in the afternoon. It really was a fun day...we all felt humbled by your passion for food and support of ITKWD. I want you all to feel included, so I'm going to blog about recipes and presentation on Tuesday. Look for a special post as well as pictures from the show. It really was a fun day...we all felt humbled by your passion for food and support of ITKWD.

    “It’s Not Easy Eating Green” month continues! And our recipe this Sunday is a oldie-but-goodie-comfort-food dish that I’m sure you’ve had somewhere along the way…Stuffed Cabbage Rolls.

    First, a note on washing leafy greens like cabbage from our friends at America’s Test Kitchen.

     

    And now, thanks to the magic of television, here's how you make my cabbage rolls start-to-finish in just just over two minutes.

    Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
    Serves 6

    Ingredients:

    • 1 large head green cabbage
    • 2-1/2 lbs meatloaf mix
    • 3/4 cup onion, minced
    • 2 tsp garlic, minced
    • 1/2 cup uncooked rice
    • 1-1/2 cups Swiss cheese, grated
    • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
    • 2 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp ground black pepper
    • 1 (14.5-oz) can diced tomatoes
    • 3 (8-oz) cans tomato sauce
    • 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
    • 1 Tbsp sugar
    • 2 cups green peppers, diced

    Directions:

    Preheat the oven to 350°F.

     

    how to core cabbage

    Remove the core from the cabbage. Place the whole head in a large pot of salted, boiling water.

     

    peeling leaves off cabbage

    Cover and cook for 3 minutes, or until softened enough to pull off the individual leaves. You’ll need about 12 leaves. Drain and set the cabbage aside to cool. When the leaves are cool enough to handle, use a paring knife to cut away the thick center stem from each leaf, without cutting all the way through.

     

    Mix together the meatloaf mix, onion, garlic, rice, cheese, tomato paste, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until fully combined.

     

    Place about 1/2 cup of meat on each cabbage leaf. Roll away from you to encase the meat. Fold in the right side of the leaf, then the left side, so that it takes the shape of an envelope. Roll away from you again, to create a neat little cabbage roll.

     

    Place the cabbage rolls seam side down into a 9” x 13” baking dish.

     

    Combine the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, vinegar, sugar, and green pepper in a medium-size bowl, and then pour over the rolls. Cover the casserole dish with foil and bake for 1-1/2 hours.

     

    Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

    This recipe is prepared using the Cook’s Essentials 10-Piece Porcelain Enamel Cookware Set (K40431).

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

    I’d like to give a little love to Wes, our ITKWDvideo and photo genius. He’s been putting those recipe videos—and the recipe photos—together for us and I think they’re just fantastic. I hope you’re finding them both helpful and entertaining.

    So have you given any thought to what our mac and cheese of the month might look like? If you said, “it’s going to be green,” you’re RIGHT!

     

    Pesto Mac & Cheese

     

    It’s really just a twinge of green, so veggie-haters, don’t you turn up your nose. My Pesto Mac & Cheese has so much flavor your tongue will be doing somersaults. As always, you can find the recipe under David’s Recipes on QVC.com or on the ITKWD iPhone app!

    Your blog question today is what’s your favorite stuffed recipe? Do you like stuffed shells? Stuffed chicken breast? Maybe our Cheeseburger-Stuffed Baked Potatoes or Nutella-Filled Cupcakes we did for “Stuff It” month this past January? I’ll see you this Sunday at Noon ET—the show is All Special Offers, foodies, so if you’ve been waiting for the best prices, you won’t want to miss a moment!

    Keep it flavorful!
    —David

     Now is the prime time of year for pruning.  Begin by examining your shrubs and trees for any winter damage.  Branches and twigs broken by weather conditions obviously need to be removed. 

     I find that pruning is preferable to shearing.  Although pruning generally requires more time and effort, it allows sunlight to penetrate the center of the plant keeping it healthier. Pruning can be done during the winter months when the plants are dormant.     

     This time of year, I love to prune a few branches with buds and bring them into my house.  I re-cut and place in warm water in a large container and watch the blooming process.  Watching this is just as fun for me as enjoying the scents of full blooming branches.  My favorites include Forsythia and Quince.

     

     Be sure not to prune any variety that has started to bud-out.  Magnolia, Rhododendron – these shrubs plants need to be pruned after their blooming cycle so you get to enjoy all of those blossoms.  Many of us have made the mistake of pruning shrubs in bud and then we have no blossoms to enjoy in spring.  If any of you have equipment-happy husbands just waiting to try out their latest tool – hide them like I do.  Now. 

     Pruning to shape or remove dead wood is also a great idea this time of year.  Fruit trees and blooming plants are only pruned on the laterals branches so not to destroy buds that will bloom or produce fruit in the spring and summer.   This type of pruning will encourage larger blooms on the terminal ends and larger, but less fruit.

     - Barbara

    Meghan and Sarah

    Hello my LCNY fashionistas.....welcome to day light savings time. This means spring is just around the corner ...yeah. It also means my daughter Meghan's wedding is only 11 weeks away and Kevin's high school graduation is 2 weeks after that.

    Spring is all about rebirth, newness, fresh starts and new beginnings. Last weekend I traveled to Washington with my daughter Sarah so we could be there for the FIRST fitting of Meghan's wedding dress. We went out to lunch, celebrated our girls weekend and then moved on to the darling wedding boutique for Meg's dress. There is nothing like it. Your daughter goes into the dressing room and comes out a beautiful young lady. Her same voice, face, smell and smile, but yet it transforms you back in time. Your daughter in your arms as a newborn, first day of school, first prom date....sitting up one night telling you about a boy named Matt (now her fiancé ) going off to college, first apartment after graduation and now a bride. Where did the time go?

    For twenty six years her Dad and I have been her number one, now I have the honor of sharing my baby with a wonderful young man. They met at 16 and I could have told you they would marry. She has always been in love with Matt. 

    I met Larry at 17...the rest is history. So my beautiful Meghan turned around in her bridal gown and said "mom what do you think?" My pink bundle of joy soon to be a bride......I respond "you look stunning and your Dad is smiling". Tear jerker....you bet....a moment I was privileged to be there for.......priceless!  

    Join MBR and me for an hour of girlfriend time 9am tomorrow morning. 

    See you soon :)

    Weekend Recap:        

         Hello PM Stylers {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}.  How are you?  I trust that you are hanging on to the fact that it will be spring in a just a matter of days… and finally we can break into those white jeans and paisley tunics.  WOOHOO!  Do you have any spring break plans on the horizon?  Aaron and I would love to get away but we’re trying to save every penny we can for our honeymoon and wedding.   It’s tough because I know it will all be worth it in the end- but golly I’m itching to get out of Philadelphia and into a warmer climate! So please, let me live vicariously through you… share all of the deets!  Even though it’s been pretty cold here, we are braving the outdoor weather and trying to have a little fun.  Here is a photo of us and our friends on a pedicycle trolley in Philly- so much fun!

     

         On Thursday of this week, I am flying home with A to do some serious wedding planning.  I mean from the time I wake up till the time I rest my head, wedding planning is in full force.  I’m doing tastings, floral arrangements, rehearsal dinner research, bridesmaid dress shopping, and my family is hosting Aaron’s family for a cookout out on Saturday.  It’s all very exciting- but if I can’t see straight because I’m so tired next Monday- you’ll know why.  I swear when people tell you wedding planning is exhausting and hard work- I thought that will never be me… I’m organized, quick on my feet, and sometimes I feel like there are not enough hours in the day.  Did you feel the exact same for your wedding?!

         This past week I went to the Wedding Suite at the Philadelphia Flower Show and was so excited to meet all of the soon-to-be Brides.  Everyone was so nice.  Everyone was very open to sharing ideas with what they wanted their wedding to be like- which I thought was very cool.  Sometimes it’s easy to get lost in all of it.  My favorite gal that I met was Katie- she was having a vintage inspired wedding and had the coolest hair; red, orange, and blonde highlights.  We talked about everything from a gorgeous bold lip for the big day to blue suede shoes for her something blue.  I love how different you can be from one another but still get the feeling of inspiration and excitement for new friends.

     

         #Dinnerfor2:  This week I decided to keep dinner really light and refreshing.  I’m a little over feeling weighed down by all of the comfort food, so I kept dinner easy and less than 10 minutes in preparation.  In a sauté pan, I used olive oil, a little bit of butter, a good bit of lemon juice, fresh garlic, and dried parsley.  I threw the shrimp on medium heat for about three minutes.  I then added mushrooms, artichokes, and turned down the heat to low-medium and let simmer for about ten minutes.     I took store-bought electrolyte water and threw in some cucumber and lemon wedges to flavor it.   I stole the water idea from Kate Somerville’s clinic and it is beyond refreshing and hydrating… you must try it!

     

     

    PM Style

                Tonight I plan on seeing how far I can take mixing and matching of prints.  I’m taking Isaac’s cardi A230578, pairing it with my favorite denim polka dot shirt, and my favorite spring time shoes.  Let me know what you think.

     

     

    Have a great week!

    XO, CC

    Hello, foodies…

    As a nation, we’re becoming more and more food cultured. Just jump on the internet and you can find 20 recipes for collard greens. Most of us can drive a short distance to get great tacos or quesadillas. All of this variety gives us a chance to broaden our taste horizons and it helps us continue to learn and grow our skills in the kitchen.

    Because we’re privy to so many of the nation’s once-exclusive dishes, you may have had ambrosia salad—a true Southern classic—before. If not, it’s time for your “learn something every day” moment. I can’t remember going to a church supper or summer picnic as a kid and not seeing Ambrosia Salad in a multitude of colors. Because it’s “Not Easy Eating Green Month” we decided to make an all-green Sweet Ambrosia Salad. (I only wish those sweet old ladies at the church bazaar had THIS recipe!)

    Sweet Ambrosia Salad

    Sweet Ambrosia Salad
    Serves 12–14

    Ingredients:

    • 1 (3-oz) box lime Jell-O
    • 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
    • 1 (8-oz) container whipped topping
    • 1 cup pecans, toasted
    • 1 cup coconut, toasted
    • 2 (11-oz) cans mandarin oranges, drained and patted dry
    • 3 cups mini marshmallows
    • 1 cup halved maraschino cherries
    • 2 kiwi, peeled and diced
    • 1 cup halved green grapes
    • 2 cups pineapple, diced
    • 2 Granny Smith apples, diced

    Directions:

    1. Place the Jell-O and 1/2 cup boiling water in a medium-size bowl. Stir until the Jell-O is dissolved, and then chill until it’s thickened, but not completely set; set aside.
    2. Whip the cream cheese in the bowl of an electric mixer with the whip attachment until fluffy. Add the Jell-O and continue whipping until smooth. Fold in the whipped topping.
    3. Add the pecans, 1/2 cup coconut, oranges, marshmallows, cherries, kiwi, grapes, pineapple, and apple. Fold all the ingredients together and place the salad in a serving dish. Top with the remaining coconut.

    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.

    We’ve gotten some GREAT kale recipes for our foodie challenge! Thank you! If you haven’t entered your specialty dish yet, you still have time. We're accepting recipes until next Wednesday. In the meantime, here’s another great tip on preparing kale from our friends at America’s Test Kitchen.

    Don’t forget about our Foodie Road Trip Challenge, too! We want to support military families and the communities they call home. Tell us all about the military base in your town and why it’s important to your community. And, because we’re always hungry for new recipes, tell us about a dish that’s unique to your area. Whether it’s a military-wife special or a local restaurant favorite, we want to hear about it.

    Wednesday felt like the perfect day to make my Sweet Ambrosia Salad—it’s going to be a very Southern day on In the Kitchen with Davidbecause we’ve got a terrific cookbook from Southern Living for you…Around the Southern Table. Join us at 8pm ET for that. Until then, tell me what’s your favorite Southern recipe? Do you like collard greens, pecan pie, or fried chicken? Maybe a sweet pecan pie?
