Hi, everyone! I took a look at my calendar today and did a double take…today is July 29! That means we’re almost into AUGUST! I just can’t believe how fast the summer is flying by…there’s so much I wanted to do with my kids before they go back to school! I intend to make the most of the two days to come...especially because tomorrow there’s another episode of You’re Home with Jill at 7pm ET! AND, we have a few more days to celebrate Christmas in July®! So far, we’ve made a Drink Umbrella Wreath and I shared my recipe for Frozen Hot Chocol... Continue Reading

It's Christmas in July(R) on QVC...Why Not Throw a Party!

Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Mom to Mom Blogs 1406059063.89

Hi, everyone! Last weekend was QVC’s very first You’re Home with Jill weekend and I thought it was just fabulous, if I do say so myself! We welcomed folks from all over the country—as far away as Arizona and Texas! Everyone really seemed to enjoy the beauty of Longwood Gardens and then we had a great dinner that night, fun jewelry exchanges, and we saw the saw the fountain show that evening. I think the highlight for me and all the girls—and one brave husband—was going to the Downton Abbey display at Winterthur. It was so fun to see the costumes and relive our fa... Continue Reading

Iced Tea 3 Ways: Beat the Heat!

Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Mom to Mom Blogs 1404852407.67

Hi, everyone! It is HOT here in the West Chester area…my thermometer says 89.9, but it feels like 100°F! What’s it like in your area? Hot? Humid? Are you looking for a way to beat the heat? I have two refreshing little words for you: Iced Tea. I think everyone has their own special iced tea recipe…my grandmother used to steep loose black tea leaves on her stove for hours. Then, she strained it, added LOTS of sugar, and I thought it was the best drink in the world. But what about making flavored teas like you see in the photo above? Red Berry Iced Tea Ingredients...

Hi, everyone! Now that you have the perfect makeup tips for summertime (thank you Laura Geller!), let’s talk about throwing that Fourth of July party. There are so many ways you can make your tablescape look patriotic. In past years, I took mini American flags and incorporated them into flower arrangements, mason jars filled with strands of mini lights, and even lined the pathway to my patio. In years prior, I celebrated with red and blue Temp-tations®. This year, I’m finding those handy bandanas I used to decorate for my summer barbecue and voila…I’ve got a red... Continue Reading

Hi, everyone! Happy holiday week!! Are you having a Fourth of July party at your house? Are you going to one? I’ll be blogging later today with some entertaining ideas. But first, let’s talk about MAKEUP. What’s your makeup routine in the summer? (If you’re like me, the answer is little to none—when I’m not on air!) It’s just so tough to look beautiful when it’s hot, humid, and there’s any kind of water involved, isn’t it? Well, not quite. Turns out my dear friend Laura Geller has some foolproof tips.  Look for my entertainin... Continue Reading

Easy Cheesy Corn Dip - Goodness Is Just 4 Ingredients Away!

Hi, everyone! It’s Pool Party time tomorrow on You’re Home with Jill! My kids love to swim—in fact, did you check out my Facebook page earlier? My family escaped for a quick trip down to the beach and my son Trevor and his best friend were in the ocean ALL DAY. It was their first official day of summer and I felt like a kid again just watching them. Fellow Philadelphians, we're pretty lucky—the Jersey shore is so close! But we're in the minority...I know lots of you are hours away from the nearest beach, which is why a Pool Party makes sense for everyone. On Friday I ... Continue Reading
