30: Margot Quinn, Holiday Cooking

Kit McCarty welcomes Margot Quinn, Pampered Chef consultant, to share recipes, tips and tools to make your holiday gatherings easier and more joy-filled.


Who doesn’t love a good tool? I love a good tool that makes me feel like I can cook.

A favorite tool works just great, it’s reliable, and if you carry it around, it could be used as a weapon.

You really feel accomplished if you make your own pizza dough.

Time is my main ingredient. How soon can I be consuming this food?

I have a resource and it’s me.

You have to get the kids into the kitchen and turn the responsibility to be fed over as soon as possible. Everybody needs to cook, everybody needs to eat.

If people want to help, let them help.

Food is so sensory. It’s all of our senses. It feels good, it tastes good, it looks good, it smells good.

Do the work when you have the time and energy. Anything that can be prepared ahead, do it now.

Try to enjoy the day, because it goes so fast. Just don’t let the holiday get you down.

It’s all in the way you come at something. Your attitude can be ‘It’s an upcoming burden’, or ‘It’s going to be a fabulous time, no matter what.’

It’s not the food, it’s the gathering, it’s coming to the table, memories made at the table–hopefully all good ones.
