"What's for dinner?" - a question we're all REALLY tired of hearing. Here to give us ideas on how to make the process easier is celebrity chef, Jamie Gwen! You've seen her as a judge on Master Chef, a competitor on Food Network's Beat Bobby Flay, and a guest on countless shows nationwide.
How can we make eating at home easier?
"Oh, I have so much to share! I do love my Quarantine snacks and I begin planning dinner at breakfast…and we’re sharing a way to give back…so, I partnered with DailyLounge.com to bring you a few of my favorite things! America’s Original Butcher, Omaha Steaks, is a fifth-generation, family owned company that has been providing the finest in premium, All-American grain-fed beef and gourmet foods for over 100 years. They have donated 100,000 servings of protein through the Feeding America network of food banks and with this partnership it will help provide millions of meals for families in need. Now you can not only stock your own fridge but you can help. With every purchase of a specially-marked combo at OmahaSteaks.com, they will make a donation to Feeding America. You can get a variety of steaks like this top sirloin or filet mignon, meals, sides, and desserts like my favorite: the caramel apple tartlets - and some even ship free! It’s easy to order, visit OmahaSteaks.com or visit one of their retail stores across the country where they are offering Call-Ahead Ordering."

"With fewer shopping trips, you have to start by making the most of everything you have. And when I am cooking, I like to enjoy a glass of wine, but what do you do with the rest? I use the Coravin System with Smart Clamps. You simply insert, tip and pour. It lets you drink or serve the wine you want, not just what’s open. You can pour any wine, in any amount, without removing the cork. I also recommend only cooking with wine you would drink! Wine can be that secret ingredient that adds flavor and texture to your favorite recipe, and with a Coravin System you can choose the best wine for your dish, without worrying about wasting a drop. It can help preserve what’s left in the bottle for weeks, months, even years." Visit Coravin.com to learn more.

Any good snacking ideas?
"We all joke about it but we all enjoy our quarantine snacks. But I like to make it healthier by choosing snacks that not only taste good but provide up to six grams of plant protein. Wonderful Pistachios No Shells Roasted and Salted are an easy no mess snack because you don’t have to remove the shells. I like that they are shelf stable so you can stock up. They work great as a topper for salads or even smoothies. Best of all they have introduced new flavors so you can mix it up with Chili Roasted and Honey Roasted. Both are a perfect snack while you’re at home watching movies or streaming your favorite TV shows." Visit GetCrackin.com to learn more.
