It's true - the kitchen is the heart of the home. Ever notice how people always gather there? Whether baking treats, making dinner or spending time with family and friends, the kitchen is my favorite place to be. Since my day job is Consumer Test Kitchen Project Manager for the Nestl?Test Kitchens, you can bet I love to stir things up. This column lets me pass along to you some of my best recipes, tips and baking secrets.

Everybody's a little bit Irish on St. Patrick's Day, right? This year, join in the fun of celebrating all things Irish with these simple ideas: For the table, have the kids make some shamrock napkin rings and Irish flag placemats out of construction paper. Sprinkle some green confetti on the table and use a potted shamrock plant as a centerpiece.

Have a traditional Irish dinner with Irish Stew and Soda Bread, a Shepherd's Pie or, of course, Corned Beef and Cabbage.

For dessert try this festive "Lucky You" Mint Pie. The creamy combination of mint and chocolate is so good that it's bound to become the newest tradition around your St. Patrick's Day table.

Write out some traditional Irish blessings on slips of paper and tuck them into treat bags of mini shamrock cookies to send home with your guests. Here's one that I like:

May you always have walls for the winds,a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,laughter to cheer you, those you love near you, and all your heart might desire.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop. In addition, individuals with increased susceptibility to melanoma may have cancer arise de novo, without a precursor lesion such as a nevus.
