Here’s My Favorite Birthday Recipe Ever! What’s yours?

Last Reply by QVCFanfromLongIsland 1424393980.223 | Started by Tara McConnell in Kitchen & Food Talk, Temp-tations

I woke up this morning with that happy, almost giddy little feeling…it’s my birthday! No matter how many candles are on my cake, I hope I’ll never outgrow feeling like an excited little kid on my birthday. Because there’s nothing better than waking up feeling super special, before you even get out of bed. Like the whole day is the perfect present, just waiting to be opened. I think I get so excited about my birthday because my mom, Gail, always made the day so special. Not just the day…when it came to birthdays, my mom was a big believer in stretching out the c...

On your mark, get set…Makeover!

Last Reply by rescuer 1422556068.333 | Started by Tara McConnell in Kitchen & Food Talk, Temp-tations, Hosts & Personalities

Did someone say Makeover? No matter what kind of makeover it is – beauty, fashion, décor, recipes – count me in! I’m a sucker for before/after pix, paint chips, fabric swatches, and – best of all – the big reveal.    The only downside to makeover mania is that it’s so easy to get excited about fun project, then lose steam mid-makeover if it stretches out too long. As a designer, I’ve gotten really good at making big and beautiful changes happen fast. That’s why I was so excited to sit down with my friend Jill Bauer recently and... Continue Reading

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you’re reading this snuggled up somewhere cozy, enjoying some well-deserved post-holiday R&R! Now that the holiday parties and New Year’s festivities are behind us, it’s all about the resolutions, right? Hmmm…For me, that answer depends on a lot of things. I do love the feeling of starting fresh in a new year. Whether it’s cleaning out my closet, organizing my kitchen or researching healthy meal options, it just comes a little easier when I know I have the whole year ahead of me. But…it’s also a little too ea... Continue Reading

Now that the excitement of Thanksgiving Day is over, I hope you are enjoying plenty of great time with those you love this holiday weekend! I know I am. J I am looking forward to some serious snuggle time with Fozzie, a few fun hangouts with friends and maybe even a little retail therapy. (Though I’m finding so many great deals on QVC today, I may even be able to skip the mall this year! Don’t miss QVC’s Black Friday Easy Pay offers on select temp-tations. And even though yesterday was like the Olympics of cooking at my house, I can’t wait to get back in the kitchen f... Continue Reading

The holidays are coming! What are a few of YOUR favorite things?

Last Reply by Serene 1419736767.1 | Started by Tara McConnell in Kitchen & Food Talk, Temp-tations, Hosts & Personalities

Alright, who’s with me? Of course the hustle and bustle of the approaching holidays has me in a caroling, cookie-swapping, gifting, menu-planning mood. Especially since just walking into QVC these days is like stepping into Santa’s workshop. And with Cooking on Q: Holiday Edition right around the corner on Sunday…well, let’s just say I’m getting a head start on sampling plenty of yummy holiday goodies. Not to mention, a head start on my gift list, too. (Santa’s little helpers will definitely want to check out my temp-tations Facebook page Oct 23, 24 and ... Continue Reading

Let Back-to-Baking season begin! Time for cozy comfort cooking on QVC.

Last Reply by vanesmro 1418322041.53 | Started by Tara McConnell in Kitchen & Food Talk, Temp-tations, Hosts & Personalities

Talk about a throwback…check out this picture of me and my Dad from my freshman year in college! I found this photo recently and it stirred up so many incredible memories. It perfectly captures the love and support I got from both my parents throughout my life. But it also brings me right back to the excitement of starting a new school year…and all the good stuff that went along with it. It’s been quite some time since I headed back to school, myself. But I still use this time of year as an excuse to organize my life and stock up for the busy months ahead. It’s jus... Continue Reading

Last Reply by Bulldawgbecky 1410877194.503 | Started by Tara McConnell in Kitchen & Food Talk, Temp-tations, Hosts & Personalities

As we head into the last weeks of August, I may be in full-on summer mode, but it turns out Mother Nature has some other ideas in mind. I’m feeling a hint of crispness in the air, the days are getting shorter…and I’m even starting to daydream about cinnamon, spice and other yummy fall flavors. Move over, summer…Autumn is definitely on its way!  And, just in time, QVC has new and special offers on temp-tations as part of the Your Fall Kitchen Cook Event.

Get ready, get set…to fall in love with fall flavors all over again!

Last Reply by tallchief 1421362313.177 | Started by Tara McConnell in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Temp-tations

Get ready, get set…to fall in love with fall flavors all over again! Thanks to some unexpectedly cool weather in our neck of the woods last week, I found myself reaching for my favorite cozy sweater…which got me thinking about fall…which got me all kinds of excited for this week’s Taste of Fall Cooking event at QVC! To be fair, it doesn’t take much to get me excited about fall flavors. The things I like to cook best just taste better in the fall – ooey-gooey casseroles, cozy comfort foods and, of course, the kinds of desserts that make you want to find ... Continue Reading

Christmas in July Home Decor Temp-tations Launch!

Last Reply by MsPink 1415190215.913 | Started by Tara McConnell in Kitchen & Food Talk, Temp-tations, For the Home Talk

Simply stepping into QVC these days is like walking in a winter wonderland. Busy little elves have been decking the halls for Christmas in July everywhere you look…and I absolutely love it! You know how most kids count down to Christmas? Well, when I was little, I counted down to the day my family unpacked all of our holiday decorations with the same excitement. Christmas for me has always been as much about the buildup and prep as it is about the celebrations…which would explain why I love Christmas in July at QVC so much! And this year, Christmas in July is even more exciti... Continue Reading
