Today on Home & Family Monday, March 17th, 2014
"Home & Family" is jumping into shark infested waters today with inventor and entrepreneur Lori Greiner. The "Shark Tank" star tells us about a typical day on set and what elements she's looking for in a perfect pitch. In her book, "Invent It, Sell It, Bank It!," Lori details the criteria of a "hero" product and gives step-by-step instructions from idea conception all the way to getting your goods on store shelves. Plus, Lori tells us about her decision to invest in Scrub Daddy, which has gone on to earn a whopping $18.5 million in a year!
"Shark Tank" airs Fridays at 9/8c on ABC.
"Invent It, Sell It, Bank It!" is available now.
Chef Stuart O'Keeffe
"Home & Family" has tapped native Irishman Stuart O'Keeffe to cook on St. Patrick's Day. The chef shares some of his favorite Irish recipes with us. First, he puts a modern twist on corned beef and brussel sprout hash with parsley sauce. Then, Stuart tells us the story behind his Forager's soup. Saving the best for last, he cooks white chocolate mint pot de cr è me with Bailey's chocolate ganache for dessert.
Irish Peat Skincare with Sophie Uliano
Sophie Uliano educates us on what exactly Irish peat is and how it's dug up and dried. Irish peat serves multiple purposes, ranging from treating diaper rash to fueling heat to smoking food. Today, Sophie shows us how it's also great for skin care because of its highly-preservative nature. Sophie even does her best to pitch its benefits to "Shark Tank's" Lori Greiner.

Mary Mary Singers Tina & Erica Campbell
Tina and Erica Campbell of music duo Mary Mary open up about their decision to allow cameras to follow their most personal moments for a reality show. The two remain fully committed to representing truth and faith, but Tina does admit to questioning her own belief system upon learning her husband had strayed from the marriage. Later, Mary Mary returns to perform the song "Trouble Ain't."
Watch Mary Mary take the stage>> "Mary Mary" airs Thursdays at 9/8c on WE tv.
You can pre-order Erica's debut solo album "Help" on iTunes or Amazon ahead of its March 25 release.
DIY Floral Jeans with Jessie Jane
Jessie Jane turns solid denim into a stylish work of art. Using stamps or stencils, she paints shapes or patterns on the legs of jeans to follow a growing trend. Make sure to put cardboard inside the pants legs to create a flat working surface and to prevent the paint from bleeding through.
In lieu of using bottles of water to quench your thirst, Mark teaches us how to install a water filtration system that attaches to our faucet. Then, he and Cristina demonstrate how simple it is to switch from tap to filtered water.
