Albany's Holly Wreath Cookie Recipe

Last Reply by MissKlynn 1418446483.87 | Started by Albany Irvin in The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities, Cookie Exchange

I couldn't wait to be tagged in our #QCookieExchange.  The recipe I am sharing came from the Loring Air Force Base Officer's Wives Club Cookbook (1975.) For as long as I can remember, these have been a part of our Holiday baking tradition. No matter where we moved – and we moved a lot – we always kept these cookies as part of our tradition. Every plate of homemade fudge and peanut brittle we made was "garnished" with these edible Holly Cookies – and they still are to this day! Plus - they are super easy to make and always leave a lasting impression. I hope your fami... Continue Reading

George Simonton - The Designer's Designer!

Last Reply by sans 1419618049.957 | Started by Albany Irvin in Fashion Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

I was in New York City recently and I had an amazing opportunity to visit George Simonton's studio.  Boy....was I in for a treat!  I mean, this is the designer's Designer!!!!  For starters, I had to be buzzed up to one of the most coveted 7th avenue locals.... right smack in the middle of Fashion Avenue and the garment district.  Once there, I couldn't believe the view!!! His wall of windows overlooked the exact route for the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade.  The view was electric with energy!  George was so gracious to walk me through his entire line from th...

Drinks and Dessert Station - starring my new Keurig 2.0!

Last Reply by Sandra272 1416159929.173 | Started by Albany Irvin in Hosts & Personalities, Coffee Talk, TSV Talk

Last week, I held a little Birthday gathering for Lisa Robertson.  Most of these folks had never been to my house; so of course I cleaned as if Scarlett was coming for inspection.    Next up was transforming my circus of a home into a place for an adult birthday party.  My hope was that I would be able to create a place that everyone would mingle and visit.  I was shooting for a “cozy” ambiance; not formal--- I’m definitely allergic to formal!   Since it was more of a drop in event that was heavy on the hor'deurves instead of a sit down dinner...

Harvest Recipe - Stuffed Acorn Squash

Last Reply by Cece in Colorado 1420024593.23 | Started by Albany Irvin in Recipe Swap, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

I have no idea why my children won’t eat potatoes; but I can get them to eat Acorn Squash?!?!  The mysteries never cease.  Oh well….    I also use this mixture for stuffed Bell Peppers.  By the way, the Olive Oil in this recipe is extra special as it is made in Portugal by the family of our own Electronics guest, Oscar Dovale!!! I hope you will give it a try and let me know if you and your littles liked it! Albany Stuffed Acorn Squash Meat Mixture: 1lb. Ground beef or turkey 1 lb. Sage Sausage 2 Large Shallots—finely chopped 4 G... Continue Reading

Happy Birthday Lisa!!!

Last Reply by rina33 1415455360.883 | Started by Albany Irvin in The Q We Love, Q News, Hosts & Personalities

Happy birthday, my friend. I don't even know where to start – you are such an amazing woman. Smart, kind, funny, tenacious, loyal & beautiful. From the moment we met, you embraced me. You were straightforward, honest, and willing to share. Qualities that many women do not often share with one another. I was able to learn from you and grow with you here at the Q.  Here we are on the set:  In two of the many cars we traveled to QVC events in: (one with Courtney)   At those New York fashion events:    And other Q Events:  (one with Rac...

The Family that PLAYS Together……………………………

Last Reply by alert 1411241610.39 | Started by Albany Irvin in The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities, Holiday Advice

If you watch me at all on the Q, I am sure you have heard me say “The family that prays together, stays together.”  I believe that very strongly and it is something that my family and I take very seriously.  The other side of that, I realized one day was that “The family that PLAYS together – makes amazing memories and has a boatload of fun along the way!!!!”  I am a big proponent of having the littles “unplug” from video games and TV – and I find that the toys that they love the most were purchased right here at QVC.   ...
