(BPT) - There’s truly no sweeter way to celebrate all the occasions in your life than with chocolate. From Mother’s Day to the start of summer, you can always enhance a party with delicious confections. Take a look below for five different ways to celebrate!
(NAPSI)—So, you’re gearing up for that special day. Your wedding day. Unlike many brides, though, you’ve been imagining something a little different from the norm. You’re more of a Billy Idol “White Wedding” and apple-bobbing bride than an “Ave Maria” and bouquet-tossing bride. Which is great. And which is why there’s a member of Professional Photographers of America out there itching to get creative with your nontraditional wedding photos.
(NewsUSA) - Cable TV? That was so three years ago.
(BPT) - Maybe it's because you hit the snooze button too many times. Maybe your toddler decided this was the day they were going to be difficult. Maybe you have a big presentation and need those extra minutes for preparation. No matter what the reason, every day many people tend to skip out on breakfast.
(NAPSI)—Here's a treat just about everyone is sure to adore.
(NAPSI)—Although National Teacher Appreciation Week begins on Sunday, May 7, 2017, any time is a good time to acknowledge all the teachers who make a positive impact on children’s lives.
(NAPSI)—Fantasy and science fiction fans don’t need to rely on magic wishes anymore. The eagerly awaited latest edition of a delightful collection is available again.
(NAPSI)—When a brand reaches 65 years in business and is still growing, the general assumption is that it’s offering a superior product. While that’s certainly true in the case of Church’s Chicken, which turns hand-battered, double-breaded chicken, fresh-cooked fried chicken and delicious scratch-made honey-butter biscuits into great chicken experiences that guests love, the food is only half of the story. The other half could prove inspiring to many younger firms.
(StatePoint) A good steak and glass of red wine offer a delightful traditional pairing. A way to elevate this experience is to choose an Amarone della Valpolicella, a traditional red wine from Italy, to accompany a perfect cut of steak with high marbling content for more flavor.
(NewsUSA) -It's been said that risotto waits for no one. And perhaps that is true if you want it fresh, but now you can turn leftover risotto into a show-stopping special meal. While you enjoy a delightful creamy risotto for dinner, the question remains; what do you do with the leftovers?
(BPT) - Ah, the joys of mid-April — tax season wraps up, spring is in full swing and the year’s fresh crop of Vidalia(R) onions arrive in store produce aisles! While onions are a staple in spring and summer cuisine, topping burgers and adding zing to salads, the unique sweetness of Vidalia onions means you can use them in some surprising and delicious ways.
(StatePoint) Welcome warm weather by gathering friends and family. If you are looking to create a memorable evening, consider entertaining guests at home with an instructional wine tasting and cooking lesson.
(BPT) - Spring is known for things that “pop” up, from warm weather to special occasions. To help you make the most of both, Lay’s is offering you two things you absolutely need: the perfect snack and the biggest pop culture dance moves.
(NAPSI)—The mountains of eastern Kentucky are coal country, but in the small town of Whitesburg, there is a thriving arts community dedicated to protecting and preserving Appalachian history and culture. Residents have been documenting and celebrating life in Appalachia and rural America for almost 50 years. This, in turn, has revitalized Whitesburg’s economy and inspired its citizens to be creative.
(BPT) - A Swiss-designed innovation for fast and easy home cooked meals, the Duromatic Micro Microwave Pressure Cooker from Kuhn Rikon, combines pressure cooking and microwaving for a new way to cook. Pressure cooking reduces cooking times by up to 70 percent, and microwaving takes about a half or a third of the time it would take on the stove, so the combination of the two is unbeatable for speed.
(StatePoint) Spring is here, which means it’s time for throwing memorable celebrations for friends and family. Whether you are hosting an Easter brunch or attending a spring picnic, you can make these occasions unforgettable with a few fun and festive additions.
(BPT) - This time of year, the urge to go outside increases by the day. There’s more sunlight, birds are chirping and, in some lucky parts of the nation, flowers might even be in bloom. What better way to welcome spring than with a picnic prepared from the heart, complete with homemade breads and baked goods made from scratch?
(BPT) - Organic, GMO-free, local, hormone-free and antibiotic-free: So many terms are attached to our food these days that it can be difficult to know what they really mean. Worldwide, 62 percent of consumers say they care about food and nutrition, and 80 percent read labels, according to a global survey conducted by Kynetec on behalf of the ENOUGH movement. Making safe, nutritious food choices is so important for our families. But with the profusion of labels and conflicting information, understanding the right choice is harder than ever.
(BPT) - Pulled pork, ham steaks, chops, tenderloin and everyone’s favorite, bacon — Americans love pork, and consume about 64 pounds per person every year, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture statistics. But Americans’ interest in pork goes far beyond what barbecue sauce to use on it, or how to serve the perfect holiday ham; they also care about where their pork comes from and how it was raised, a new survey by Cargill shows.
(BPT) - It’s hard to imagine celebrating Easter without baskets full of delicious chocolate and special gifts. In fact, filling Easter baskets has been a cherished tradition for centuries. This year Joy Cho, creative director and founder of the popular blog OhJoy.com, created three fun (and simple) Easter basket tutorials that will leave a lasting impression on friends and family.
