On-The-Air: Los Angeles

Being a Southern girl, I am always up for any occasion that calls for a party and a football game.

The big game coming up next Sunday is a great excuse to gather friends, even if some of them are more focused on the commercials than the game itself.

If you’re hosting people next Sunday, here are a few food and drink ideas I shared today at CBS Los Angeles. This segment and this post were sponsored by the featured companies:

On-The-Air: "FOX & Friends"

Live TV is very unpredictable. Segments can get cancelled, rescheduled, or shortened last-minute due to breaking news.

Despite the busy news morning at “FOX & Friends” today, I was still able to share a variety of last-minute gift ideas you can wear, watch, eat, or play. We covered everything you see on this table in just over two minutes - check out the full segment below!


On-the-Air: Los Angeles

Each year, we put up our Christmas tree before Halloween. This year, it went up on October 14.

I also start working early in the season on our main family holiday gift: the annual Sewell Family Yearbook, a photo book that I have created for the last eight years.

This year, with Thanksgiving falling very early, I am getting an early start on sharing holiday gift guide segments as well. Here are a few of the items I showed this morning on KCAL-TV in Los Angeles. The segment and this post are sponsored by the featured companies.

Thanksgiving Week Deals

It was great to be back at “FOX & Friends” this morning with some great shopping deals for Thanksgiving week!

Better With Bacon

Even though we put up our Christmas tree on October 14 - a new personal best for me - I do wait until after Halloween to start my Thanksgiving preparations and TV segments.

That TV tour kicked off in a delicious way last week with a recipe for Pecan Pie with Bacon from Farmland Foods, which sponsored the segment and this post.  In my opinion, this offers that perfect combination of salty and sweet that makes dessert so delicious.
