Candle Impressions Thanksgiving Centerpieces!

Started by Jill Bauer in For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Holiday Advice 1416956832.84

Hi, everyone! Happy Thanksgiving eve! If you happen to have the Candle Impressions Fillable Glass Log at home, you can make a quick centerpiece, if you haven't already. We gave our talented blogger friends this versatile decoration and one direction: think Thanksgiving! And they delivered…again! I wish I was as creative as Tristin from Tristin & Company. She created five different (all amazing) holiday scenes with her centerpiece. And I can’t decide which I like best! What do you think? With the help of her husband, Danielle (from SimmWorks Family Blog) created an AMAZI... Continue Reading

Last Reply by hsawaknow 1416977912.603 | Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Mom to Mom Blogs

Hi, everyone!   I just checked the weather and saw SNOW in the forecast here in the Northeast. Of course it’s right over Thanksgiving!! Please be safe the next few days if you’re traveling for the holiday—even if clear skies are in your future.   I’m headed to my in-laws for Thanksgiving and the request was dessert. So I’m making a homemade pumpkin pie and my Grandma Metzger’s Cream Cheese Cherry Delight. I just went to the kitchen to make sure my recipe was handy when I found my Leftover Turkey Casserole. As much as I like leftovers, the quant... Continue Reading

Flashback Friday! My Mom & I Make Sock It To Me Cake

Last Reply by Zag 1416602083.827 | Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Holiday Advice

Hi, everyone! It SNOWED here yesterday in the Philadelphia area! We had a fire going in our living room last night and it felt like the holiday season was really here. Truth be told, it practically is here. Thanksgiving is two weeks away, Christmas is just over a month away, and it’s time to make all those recipes we wait for and covet after the holidays are long gone. As the snow was falling, I found myself in the kitchen gathering ingredients to make my mom’s Sock It To Me Cake. And before I knew it, I had a cake in the oven. Do you remember when my mom came to make that with me... Continue Reading

Candy Turkeys for Your Thanksgiving Table

Last Reply by lawlibrn 1417124393.15 | Started by Jill Bauer in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Mom to Mom Blogs

A few years ago, David Venable and I hosted QVC’s first-ever Google Hangout, which is kind of like a live chat and webcast in one. Anyone can meet up and chat, or only a few people chat while others watch and listen. Pretty cool. Anyway, David and I did a You're Home with Jill and In the Kitchen with David Thanksgiving-inspired Hangout. And, we both shared some planning tips, entertaining ideas, and of course, recipes with attendees. This was one of the recipes I shared and I just love it...Candy Turkeys! Candy Turkeys Ingredients: Candy corn Chocolate double-stuff Oreos Golden... 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
