Grilled Shrimp Tacos
Lifestyle expert Monica Hart is in the kitchen making mouth-watering grilled shrimp tacos with a delicious pineapple salsa. She calls this the ultimate summer dish. Marinate the shrimp for ten minutes before putting them on the grill. Before grilling, make sure to soak your skewers in water to avoid them catching fire. She also makes her own walnut cilantro pesto to add to the tacos. Finally, instead of taco shells, she places her shrimp, salsa and pesto on grilled pita.
DIY Summer Sunglasses
Ali Fedotowsky-Manno is upgrading an ordinary pair of sunglasses by making them more stylish and personalized for you using colorful letter beads. When it comes to attaching the beads, she recommends using E6000. When it comes to selecting sunglasses, she prefers the cat eye style for more space to add embellishments. You can find your beads in bulk at either your craft store or online.

Founder of “Cali’flour Foods,” Amy Lacey is in the Home & Family kitchen making her famous cheddar chive biscuits with cauliflower rice.

DIY Magazine Art
Ken Wingard is getting inspired by Hallmark Channel’s Original Movie, “Snow Bride,” by making this colorful magazine art. This is a great DIY to recycle all of those magazines you may have laying around the house. Keep in mind the colors you will be using for your art when selecting the pages you will be tearing out. School glue works the best for attaching the tightly rolled magazine pages to your base. Don’t miss “Snow Bride,” tonight at 8/7c on Hallmark Channel.
Chili Chocolate Cauliflower Pie
Amy Lacey is back in the kitchen and this time she is making a sweet treat of chili chocolate cauliflower pie. She says this dish was influenced by her husband who loves the combination of chocolate and spicy flavors. She makes the crust for this pie with cauliflower, cheese and minced jalapeños. Cook the crust for 30 minutes or until it begins to look golden brown. When it comes to the chocolate spread, she says it does not matter if it is dark or milk. She adds a little cayenne pepper to the chocolate for even more of a kick. Finally, she makes a sauce for the topping using goat cheese and heavy cream.
