Happy Halloween! I posted the “Halloween Rules” on my Facebook page…did you read these yet? Whatever you’re doing—or whatever you’re being tonight, have fun. And be safe!! You’re Home with Jill is back this Wednesday night and we have two hours together! Join me at 6pm ET for a holiday decorating mini-series, a brand-new recipe, and this fabulous DIY project: These elegant gourds were inspired by something I saw in one of those home décor magazines. I have a love/hate relationship with said magazines, by the way. I swear I get at least f... Continue Reading

Seven Spooky Scenes for Halloween!

Started by Jill Bauer in For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Mom to Mom Blogs 1414691553.22

Hi, everyone! Do you remember the YHJ back-to-school mason jar challenge last month? We sent some of our favorite bloggers a set of mason jars and asked them to make a clever back-to-school creation. It was AWESOME…we had teacher survival kits, snacks for the kids, you name it. Well, I wondered what our talented friends could do with the Halloween decorations we have here at QVC. So, we sent our bloggers some props and one instruction: create a spooky scene. The results are in—just in time for Halloween. Kimbo, from A Girl and a Glue Gun, made a spooky frame from QVC’s p...

Peppermint Popcorn Balls - The Perfect Holiday Munchie

Last Reply by goocharoo 1414543418.38 | Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Hi, everyone! I love popcorn. And I love how you can literally add any flavor—cheddar, spicy pepper, or caramel and make a totally new treat. A gourmet popcorn shop near my home has bins filled with chocolate-covered popcorn and it got me thinking…what if you put white chocolate—and peppermint—on top of your popcorn? It seemed perfect. Well, I tried it. And it turned out even better than I could have imagined. Here’s my holiday recipe for Peppermint Popcorn Balls! Peppermint Popcorn Balls Ingredients: 1 bag microwave popcorn, popped 8 oz white chocolate ... Continue Reading

Hello Yummy Bars - My Bestie's Best Recipe

Last Reply by chellie 1414460128.537 | Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Hi, everyone! My friend Emily and I have been friends for a LONG time. In fact, now that I think about it…we’ve been besties since we were eight. Our dads took business classes together, our moms were teachers and taught together...I'm not sure we had much of a choice in the matter! Anyway, she joined the same sorority at college that I did (even though we went to different schools), and she was the maid of honor at my wedding. I don’t see her as often as I would like and I’m sure you all have a friend like that. But, we both lead busy lives…me at QVC and a fa... Continue Reading

Last Reply by dixieblue 1414365510.653 | Started by Jill Bauer in For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Mom to Mom Blogs

Hi, everyone! It’s pretty tough to stump me when it comes to gift ideas. I’m surrounded by some amazing items each and every day here at QVC, so I seem to find presents for almost everyone on my list. But, I’ll admit that I love putting something personal in my family's stockings or having a little something for holiday guests, my kids’ teachers, their friends, the list goes on... This year, that little “something” is a pair of hand warmers! To make these, find: 2 pieces of felt Rice Sewing machine Funnel Thread, to match felt Then: Cut eac... Continue Reading

10 Fall Entertaining Ideas

Last Reply by Skyqueen 1414076360.947 | Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Hi, everyone! It's absolutely gorgeous outside…almost all the trees here in West Chester are changing colors and it just feels like fall with the crisper, cooler air. I drove by a local orchard today and it was just bustling with hay riders and apple pickers. What do you have planned for the weekend? If you’re doing a little entertaining or you’re just getting around to decorating your home, ‘tis the season. We’ve made some terrific (if I do say so myself) autumn decorations and recipes on You’re Home with Jill and I hope they inspire you, just as they&rs... Continue Reading

Decadent Chocolate Fondues - Easy, Delicious, Company-Friendly!

Last Reply by banjo 1413326136.657 | Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Holiday Advice

Hi, everyone! I always have an inner struggle with myself when I try to choose what desserts to make around the holidays. There are just so many yummy recipes out there...and I HAVE to make the perfect one. More often than not, I usually decide on two or three desserts if I’m hosting the gathering…a cookie, a pretty cake, and something blissfully easy but popular…like chocolate fondue! Fondue is so company-friendly because you don’t have to serve your guests. Just prepare a platter of dippers before your guests ever arrive—think sliced pound cake, strawberries... Continue Reading

Remembering Joan

Last Reply by sunfloweryellow 1414017436.68 | Started by Jill Bauer in Jewelry Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Joan Rivers Classics Collection

Do you know that saying, “Be careful what you wish for?” Well, there’s at least one time in my life when I’m glad I wasn’t careful…and that was when I wished I could work with Joan Rivers. Long before I was hired as a program host at QVC, I would watch her on the air, mesmerized by her story telling of Russian czars and Faberge eggs. I’d laugh at her brashness, but also admire her ladylike style. When my dream of hosting on QVC came true, my biggest hope…and fear…was to work with Joan. She was one of the biggest celebrity names at QVC... Continue Reading

Started by Jill Bauer in For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Holiday Advice 1412972195.77

Hi, everyone! Candles—whether real or flameless, big or small, scented or not—are unlike any other piece of décor you can have. They bring warmth, light, and instant charm and you’ll find at least one candle in every room in my home. And…at the holidays, I tend to incorporate even more candles into my decorating. Here’s an easy DIY idea that you can use in your home or give to friends or loved ones. I made mine specifically holiday, but you could put anything on the front…an initial, a snowflake, a leaf, a flower, a tree…be creative! You ... Continue Reading

Clam Dip in a Bread Bowl -- Try Something New at Your Next Party

Last Reply by Spring4 1412982048.37 | Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Hi, everyone! My dearest friend David Venable’s cookbook shipped from QVC’s doors today to those of you who already picked up his second comfort food cookbook, Back Around the Table! If you haven’t gotten your copy yet, I HIGHLY recommend it. I’ve had the pleasure of trying quite a few of the recipes when I presented it with him on air, and I wanted to Happy Dance my way across the room. This Wednesday on You’re Home with Jill we’re talking about grown-up entertaining. On Friday, I showed you how to make personalized wine-glass charms from old games. And t... Continue Reading
