    Loved Home and Backyard today. It was so homey feeling seeing the reporters in a more relaxed setting. Can’t wait to try the recipes. A couple of tips I’d like to share are: when I make punch for a gathering I freeze a punch ball instead of using ice cubes. I simply pour some of the punch into cereal bowl size plastic containers and freeze them. As they melt in the punch it doesn’t water it down. Also, to keep cookie decorations from making baking sheets sticky, I use parchment paper to line the sheets. They are easy to switch out for fresh parchment. Thanks for a great show and fun way to start a snowy weekend!
