Radio Personality Kim Pagano Visits Maryann's Kitchen
Radio Personality (and my neighbor!) Kim Pagano recently visited me in my kitchen during a taping of Simply Delicious Living. We had a blast!

Make "Mandarin Chicken with Walnuts" for a yummy, simple lunch or dinner in 30 minutes or less! The sweet Mandarin oranges mix well with the freshly squeezed lemon making the chicken moist and tender, and the sprigs of fresh mint add a cool pop!

If you haven't tuned in to Kim's popular radio show, you must! Listen to "The Kim Pagano Show” on KVTA 1590 AM Radio, Saturdays, 6:00 am-7:00 am and 7:00 am-8:00 am. You can also listen LIVE and find out more about Kim and the show at KimPaganoShow.com

When you look at your calendar for the week, do you find that you are ever overwhelmed by the endless schedule of activities? As the years pass by, do you find them getting shorter and shorter with dreams and vacations always put on the back burner?

It’s important for your health, well-being and success to stop and smell the flowers – or the coffee – EVERY day! READ MORE.
