    Your Holiday Recipes

    December 23, 2011 • 8:00 am


    You guys may have noticed, but I’m the kind of cook that tends to come up with recipes and new creations as I go. I love experimenting and trying out new flavor combinations and though I don’t always have a recipe in mind, I LOVE getting inspiration from other people’s favorite dishes. Well, when you shared your favorite holiday recipes last week I was SO impressed that I decided I had to post my favorites on the site! Here are some of YOUR holiday dishes that I can’t wait to try:

    Last week when I asked you guys to share your favorite holiday traditions it reminded me of my fondest holiday memory, which is a family tradition that still happens every year. Being an only child, we spent many Christmases with my cousins.

    Delivering Gifts to the Crossnore Academy

    December 21, 2011 • 12:00 pm

    Last week we filmed our 2012 Christmas Special for EMHE in Lincolton, North Carolina and Ed Sanders and I went to the Crossnore Academy to deliver gifts to the kids who are awaiting adoption.

    Sometimes we take for granted that we get to spend Christmas with a FAMILY. As much as they drive you crazy, take a moment on Christmas morning to stop unwrapping presents and be thankful for your family- not everyone has the luxury of having one (or presents for that matter).

    If you are a young family, consider adoption. It is so incredible how much power we have to change a child’s life and so many children are waiting for a permanent home. Phyllis, who runs the Crossnore Academy, has angel wings, and a local Lincolnton school came to help with the gifting as well:
