Robert Irvine’s Duck Breast with Berry Sauce
Sour Cherry Chutney
Floyd Cardoz’s Dried Fruit Chutney
Molasses Sweet Potatoes
The Neelys’ Sweet Bourbon Mashed Potatoes
Apple Cinnamon Sponge Cake and Sweet Cream Glacé
Sandra Lee’s Apple Angel Food Cake
Just a short note…
Today, history is being made. Today, our busy Studio A is dark because our talent is heading down to Washington, DC. Everyday, we should set aside a little time to do something good for our communities, but, today, is a great day to start if you haven’t already!
Whether bringing a few cans of food down to the local food shelter, letting someone have your seat on the bus or train, baking a pie and bringing it to your neighbor, whatever. Food is the ultimate way (in my opinion) to show people that you care about their health, happiness, and well being.
Tonight, I’ll be attending a benefit for keeping New York’s food pantries stocked! Many pantries across the country are being hit hard because of the financial crunch. I cannot wait to bring in my cans and packages and mingle with like minded do-gooders.
Happy Inauguration Day!
