Home Thrown - The Southern Ideal Home Show, April 8-10

The Southern Ideal Home Show, the Triangle's largest home and garden event, is gearing up for its spring show Friday, April 8 through Sunday, April 10 in Raleigh. The three-day showcase will be held at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds and will feature more than 300 top area professionals in home and garden.

Bring your home to-do list and finish your improvement projects with a face-to-face conversation with area professionals in home and garden. See what's trending now in remodeling, enhance your outdoor living experience, shop for interior décor, remodel your kitchen & bath and much, much more for projects of all sizes.

Headlining this year's show is celebrity guest Chip Wade, co-host of HGTV's newest show Wise Buys. Wise Buys features Wade and his realtor wife, Pauli, as they use their expert knowledge to help other couples learn the ins and outs of home buying and renovation. In each episode, Pauli chooses 3-4 houses that fit the criteria of their clients, but also showcases great strategies for getting an excellent deal.
In addition to Wise Buys, Wade also hosts HGTV's Elbow Room and often appears in the role of carpenter or contractor on HGTV shows such as Curb Appeal: The Block and Designed to Sell. Wade will present The Art of the Amazing Space: Lessons Learned from 10 Years of TV Makeovers on Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10 at 1:30 p.m. Following each presentation, Wade will host a Meet and Greet session for fans to take pictures and get autographs.
The Show's got answers to many of your question of "how to fix" or "who to hire" as they are to feature more ideas and solutions than ever before. The show will spotlight what's trending in home improvement, building, kitchen and bath, outdoor living, interior decorating and more.
Don't miss old favorites such as shopping the Partners in Design Sale and Ask TheHomeMag Aisle, as well as new exhibits including Carolina Pottery and the Reuse Warehouse. The Home Show will also showcase the third edition of Brews & Bites, where guests will enjoy locally-crafted beers with savory foods created by top chefs and businesses in the Triangle.

Get a head start on your spring projects by registering online for a chance to win a $1,000 Shopping Spree Gift Certificate to shop at the show.

Advance tickets are available at Walgreen's locations throughout the Triangle. Tickets are available online and at the door for $9, and children under 15 are free with a paying adult. Friday is 55+ Day (tickets are $7 for anyone 55 and older) and Hero Day (free admission for active and former military, police, fire or EMT with valid identification).

Egg-ceptional - Easter Eggs

What does an evil hen lay? (Deviled eggs!) Is your deviled egg dish tucked away in a cabinet somewhere, longing to be used? Let us help. Since deviled eggs are the staple for any Southern event and Easter is this weekend, we've updated and added new favorites to your deviled egg repertoire. Any of these deviled egg recipes make for a delicious spring meal starter or side for your Easter meal. We love the recipes featured, but feel free to make them your own by tailoring to your desired tastes.

Deviled Eggs with Candied Bacon - Kick your deviled eggs up a notch with candied bacon. It's easier to make than you think. The recipe comes from Kelsey Nixon's Kitchen Confidence, and includes the super-easy instructions for making your own candied strips. Click here for recipe.

French-Style Stuffed Eggs - Stuffed eggs are often served warm in France, and this recipe is similar to one from the Périgord region. If you plan to dye Easter eggs, cook extras for this dish. Click here for recipe.

Deviled Egg Blues - Here's a fun spin on a classic recipe: blue cheese and bacon deviled eggs. Who knew? Click here for recipe.

Avocado Deviled Eggs - Contrary to classic deviled eggs this recipe is unique in that it doesn't have mayonnaise and creaminess and healthy fats comes along with the avocado. The cilantro adds flavor while the red onion adds flavor and a bit of texture. No doubt, a keeper recipe! Click here for recipe.

The classic Southern Deviled Egg - Lynn Wells of Thyme Well Spent in Greensboro, has shared her best Deviled Eggs recipe with us. She claims these are her "go-to crowd pleasers".  Click here for recipe.

How to Boil an Egg - Lynn says "Don't wing it"! Follow this foolproof guide for perfect hard-boiled eggs, every time.
Directions - Place eggs in a pot and add cold water until water is approximately 2 inches above the eggs. Bring to a rolling boil. Remove pot from burner, place lid on pot, and let sit for 17 minutes. Drain pot and place eggs in an ice-water bath. Crack and peel eggs under cold running water.

The Playful Egg - Decorating Easter Eggs is a huge part of our Easter celebration, While many people think egg decorating is for kids, it's really the adults that have the most fun with it. Take the challenge of creating different egg designs every year.

Eco-Friendly Eye Candy - Why buy another box of artificial dyes when Mother Nature's own colorful palate is right there in the produce aisle? This year, start a new family tradition: decorating Easter eggs with fruit and vegetable dyes you and your kids create together.

For Eco-friendly Eggs - Plan your color palate. You'd be amazed how many fruits and veggies can be used to create dyes. To keep things simple, decide on 3-5 different colors and shop accordingly. For the most vibrant colors, go with...Frozen blueberries = blue, Red cabbage = blue/purple, Grape juice = purple, Beets, frozen berries, or cranberry juice= red, Turmeric (spice) = yellow, Spinach = green, Orange juice = orange, Tea or coffee grounds = brown. Click Here to learn how to turn these ingredients into vibrant colored Easter Eggs

Decoupage Eggs - This clever egg decorating method with paper napkins is easier than you may think. With so many gorgeous decorative cocktail napkins to choose from you can custom design your eggs depending on what you love. The technique is easy and so gratifying!

One thing we've learned is that with this technique in using different napkins we promise you'll produce very different looks even when using the same napkin design. But they all look great piled in a bowl or basket. Click here for DIY directions.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
