Disney FROZEN Review & Exclusive Photos! In Theaters TODAY! #DisneyFrozen

As a huge fan of Disney films and owner of pretty much all the “classics”, I honestly believe Disney's new movie FROZEN is yet another triumphant film, fit to call a classic.  I was truly overwhelmed with emotions while watching this film.  I was so connected to each character in a special way and when the story came to an end, tears just came down my face because it was just so beautiful.  The narrative is inspired by a fairy tale (Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen”), a story of two … [Read more...]

Grana Padano and Lidia Bastianich Teach Healthy Eating with Kids at Eataly

This month my daughter and I had the opportunity to cook some delicious and healthy recipes with Lidia Bastianich and Grana Padano in La Scoula Grande right inside Eataly in New York City. I've been a fan of Lidia's Italy since I was a teenager. My mother-in-law is also a huge fan. My mother-in-law always says, "All Lidia has to do on that show is throw some onion and garlic into a pan and I start to drool!" I enjoy Lidia's recipes because her approach is fresh, rustic, and simple. We … [Read more...]

Chris O’Donnell Has a Small Message for YOU!

As you may know, I participated in spreading the word about the New Lunchables -- Now With Fruit last month in Times Square.  I was able to interview Chris O'Donnell and spend time with the Lunchables team in helping Feeding America reach their goal of donating up to one million pounds of fruit to the hungry. It was a beautiful day despite the drizzle here and there.  The crowd was awesome and we all had a chance to try out samples of the Lunchables. But Lunchables still NEEDS your help in … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – Old Friends with @MrsSOsbourne (#linky)

During the Red Carpet Premiere of Gnomeo and Juliet in Hollywood (the after-party to be exact), I had an awesome opportunity to take a photo with one of my favorite women from the show The Talk, Sharon Osbourne aka on Twitter, @MrsSOsbourne. Sharon Osbourne was sitting at a table (just a few feet away from me) with Elton John, some other people and her son.  After she took a picture with another fan, I went up to her and mentioned that I loved her show, The Talk and her eyes brightened.  Then … [Read more...]
