Although the Oscars are all about glitz and glam, to me, the perfect viewing party will achieve that without much fuss. A flavorful popcorn bar paired with a champagne cocktail bar that offers a variety of options for your guests achieves that easy, but glam vibe. This simple Oscars viewing party lets your guests sit back and enjoy the show with more than just your standard movie popcorn and soda. More importantly, this party will take you minutes to prepare and let you enjoy the show with your guests.

This is your fail-safe guide to an easy, affordable, and beautiful Valentine's Day arrangement. Don't get me wrong, a dozen red roses are great and always welcome, but this arrangement adds a bit of interest and will impress the receiver with your arrangement prowess. In terms of cost, I buy my flower's at Trader Joe's where each of these three flowers cost $5.99 or less.

Mirepoix, otherwise known as delicious heaven or your best friend in the kitchen. Mirepoix is a classic mixture of carrots, celery, and onion that acts as a flavor base for everything from soups to sauces to stocks to even breakfast hashes (trust me, try it sauteed with a sunny-side-up egg over top). The concept is simple, three aromatic veggies that when combined add subtle delicious flavor that layers with additional ingredients to create a complex mix of flavors.
