A Tribute to My Dear Friend, Joan Rivers

Last Reply by Oh My Stars 1411496135.607 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Fashion Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

When Joan first arrived at QVC in 1991, everyone was abuzz wondering what she would be like in person. I was the first host to work with Joan and I was so nervous. However, I figured we would make a good combo since she was funny and I am not.  Our first show went well and as Joan left the set she turned to me and said, "Good-bye, my darling!" That little sign of affection made me fall in love with Joan and I have loved her for 24 years! I was pregnant with our second son, Cory, when Joan first arrived at the Q. So, while I was on maternity leave, Joan began working with Kathy Levine an... Continue Reading

I was honored to be a part of Courtney and Aaron's Special Day!

Last Reply by lovestoteach 1411509881.72 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Fashion Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

The weather was perfect, the wedding was beautiful and Courtney looked gorgeous ....  like a magical Disney princess. Her husband, Aaron looked handsome and SO in love with Courtney! It was so much fun!!   Courtney shed a tear or two coming down the aisle and so did I.  I would guess there were about 200-250 guests there. The reception was held at a country club, which was a luscious green. Courtney's dad gave his "Father of the Bride" speech and said something like 'look how you've turned out; you're sweet and kind, you have a successful career and now you're a wife, but you...

Mary Beth's Menu - Just give "peas" a chance!

Last Reply by Greeneyed Lady 1411517971.95 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities

I like most vegetables, but I am always looking for different ways to serve them other than steamed. The following recipe is an easy way to jazz up peas and might just better your chances at getting your children to try them. My friend, Erika doesn't even like peas, but she said she likes my "baked frozen peas". I hope you and your family will too!  Counting our blessings, Mary Beth Roe Baked Frozen Peas 18 - 20 oz. frozen peas 1 can of cream of celery soup 1/2 cup bread crumbs 4 tablespoons melted butter Butter a casserole pan. Separate frozen peas and place in pan and mix... Continue Reading

Since you were so kind in helping me choose which dress to wear to Linda's daughter's wedding before, I'm asking for your help once again. Which dress do you think I should wear to Courtney's, evening wedding? I love them both and I'm having a hard time deciding. P.S. These pictures were taken pre-jewelry. Thanking you in advance!

A Football Buffet with Mary Beth Roe

Started by Mary Beth Roe in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities 1410357745.86

It's no secret that I love football! And even though "my team" (The Minnesota Vikings) are not a part of it, I am really looking forward to watching the Super Bowl next Sunday. Mark and I love to have family and friends over to watch the game with us and of course, food is always a big part of the day. I generally do buffet style, because I would rather spend my day enjoying our company and the game than in the kitchen cooking and preparing. I usually make everything the day before and put everything out just before our guests arrive. Plus, buffets allow others to bring their favorite dishes ... Continue Reading

Mary Beth's Menu - Poppin' Party Mix

Last Reply by Reever 1410011171.967 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities

It's football season and as you know, I love football! I also love easy recipes the whole family can enjoy! This is one of them. What's great too (as with most of my recipes) you can change out ingredients to suit your taste. If you do not like onion powder, feel free to change it to garlic or your favorite seasonings .... not a fan of chex? change it to bran cereal. Have fun and let's get ready for some football!! Counting our blessings, Mary Beth Roe  Poppin' Party Mix 4 cups chex cereal 1/2 cups pretzel sticks (I snapped these in half to make them bite size) 1 cup salted peanut... Continue Reading
