Old-Fashioned Maple Walnut Cake

Last Reply by my cucina 1427493705.71 | Started by QVC Editor in Recipe Swap

Hi, there! Being from New England, I love everything maple! When I was a kid, my parents would take me and my sisters out for ice cream, and I always got a cone with maple walnut ice cream. Nothing but genuine maple syrup will do on pancakes and waffles, and I love maple-flavored bacon. I even got a bottle of Crown Royal Maple Flavored Whiskey for Christmas! When it comes to pastry, I’m not big on cookies and bars, but I do like pies (my mom makes a killer apple pie, and I posted the recipe in a previous blog. My weakness, however, is layer cake. I love a good old-fashioned made-f... Continue Reading

Memories of Joan with David Dangle

Last Reply by JJ Girl 1423865144.063 | Started by QVC Editor in The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities, Joan Rivers Classics Collection

Hi there, This month I’m turning my blog entry over to QVC Senior Copywriter Annie. As a senior copywriter, Annie both writes and edits product descriptions for our website.   Troy QVC Editor   Hi, all! Talking with David Dangle, CEO of Joan Rivers Worldwide, was much like talking with Joan. He’s funny, very sweet, and oh-so down-to-earth. And any nervousness I might have felt upon entering the QVC green room quickly faded as he let out a friendly greeting. When I asked him if Joan was as hilarious behind closed doors as she was in front of the cameras, David told... Continue Reading

Can we talk? Remembering Joan Rivers

Last Reply by Leeny 1417046571.77 | Started by QVC Editor in Jewelry Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Joan Rivers Classics Collection

Hi there, On the morning of August 28 as I was getting ready for work, Joan Rivers inexplicably popped into my mind. For some reason, I began wondering what the world—and QVC—would be like without the inimitable Joan. It wasn’t until an hour or so later while driving to work that I heard the news that Joan had been admitted to Mount Sinai Hospital after undergoing an endoscopy in a Manhattan clinic. Like the rest of the world, Joan was in my thoughts during the following week as news continued to come in about her condition. Just when it sounded like she was improving, he... Continue Reading

Rick Domeier celebrates 20 years at the Q

Last Reply by mainelady2 1413058767.37 | Started by QVC Editor in The Q We Love, Q News, Hosts & Personalities

Hi there, Twenty years have passed since Program Host Rick Domeier joined QVC on October 10, 1994. Now, he’s happily married with two boys and one of the most recognizable faces and personalities on QVC. “A lot has happened in 20 years,” Rick muses. “All in all, it’s been a wonderful experience.” I first met Rick shortly after I started at QVC about 16 years ago. I took my mom on the QVC Studio Tour. Rick appeared along the tour route and stopped and spoke to the group, and I remember how excited and impressed everyone was (myself included!). Work...

2 Die 4 Chili

Started by QVC Editor in Kitchen & Food Talk, The Q We Love 1402070986.17

Hi there, Chili is a great year round meal. I like it in winter with a loaf of crusty bread, and in the summer with nacho chips. It’s perfect for a party because you can leave it on a warm burner on the stove or in a crock pot and let guests serve themselves. I admit that I usually make chili with a seasoning packet and a pound of ground beef for a quick meal. But for special occasions, I use this 2 Die 4 Chili recipe. My friend Tova Borgnine first shared this recipe with me in 2004. She got it from a dear friend of hers, C.V. Wood, Jr., an amusement park developer and the man who brou... Continue Reading

May 7 is National Roast Leg of Lamb Day

Last Reply by Justice4all 1398697444.3 | Started by QVC Editor in Kitchen & Food Talk, The Q We Love

Hi there, One of my favorite actresses is Sophia Loren. I first saw her in Marriage, Italian Style (1964) with Marcello Mastroianni. About 20 years ago a version that had been dubbed in English was on television. I taped it and watch it once a year. The quality isn’t great, and the movie hadn’t been formatted to fit TV screens, so most of the time I only see half of the actors’ faces! Recently I purchased the original Italian version (with subtitles) on DVD, but I prefer to watch the version I have on tape, bad though it is!    What does all this have to do wit...
