To Our Friend Lisa

Last Reply by pippens 1418995959.777 | Started by Alberti QVC Host in Beauty Banter, Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities

  Looking at a blank page, its hard to conceptualize writing a sentence, paragraph or even book to describe Lisa Robertson.  The truth of the matter is that for me, Lisa is so much more than a colleague that I got along with – she is a friend, an inspiration, a mentor…I can go on and on… I’ve known Lisa for some time now.  Like many of us, she was first my friend on the television.  I got to see her whenever I wanted, no matter what mood I was in and no matter what outfit I was wearing!!!  I didn’t have to put any effort in beyond tu...

Finishing Touches on your Holiday Decorating

Last Reply by mtme 1418857686.587 | Started by Alberti QVC Host in Fashion Talk, For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Well, it’s been such an amazing holiday season already, and the experience of decorating my first Christmas tree this year has really made it so special.  I wanted to share the final images of my star, nativity and the stockings! So many of you chimed in on my Facebook page and I loved hearing your ideas. Thank you!!  I decided to go with a traditional star to top off the tree.  I looked at many options, and this one caught my eye.  I love the glisten that it gives off, and I felt it complimented the tree overall.     I went with a nativity from V...

Thanksgiving Leftovers - From Soup to Nuts

Last Reply by prophet 1418349586.02 | Started by Alberti QVC Host in Kitchen & Food Talk, For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities

As the saying goes “waste not, want not!” Well, the week after Thanksgiving is definitely a time when we want to creatively gobble-up the leftovers.  Here are some recipe ideas I conjured up over the weekend. Leftover “Stuffle Stacks” This idea came from Steve, the security guard at the Q.  It’s a waffle made out of stuffing, but it’s meant as a savory mid-afternoon treat! I was so excited about it that I made an extra tray of stuffing this year. Needless to say, I’ve been eating “stuffles” all weekend! Here is what you need: ... Continue Reading

Alberti Decorates His Christmas Tree

Last Reply by Luv_My_Beagle 1417047419.777 | Started by Alberti QVC Host in Beauty Banter, For the Home Talk

When I was young, decorating the tree was something we always looked forward to!! My brother and I always wanted to help hang ornaments, and mom was very careful in guiding us.  Here are some of the tips she instilled in us right from the start.  Step 1: Know what you’re working with Just like knowing your ingredients for baking a cake, you need to know the ingredients that are going to make your tree the centerpiece of your holiday.  So first, I lay out all of the decorations by size and color so that I can visualize the overall theme of the tree. I used some spheres my... Continue Reading

"Dressing" The Tree

Last Reply by ladylovesred 1416631693.363 | Started by Alberti QVC Host in Fashion Talk, For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Many of you have asked to see the way I decorate for the holidays so I decided to  give you a sneak peek at what's to come.  Step 1 – Pick the perfect tree:  I found the perfect tree to compliment my family room. Because of my tall ceilings, I didn’t want it to take up the entire room, so I went with a 9 ft. Bethlehem Lights slim tree. I wanted to do a traditional look this year so I went with the all white tree option. I fell in love with it during the Lisa Robertson show and had to have it! Once I got the tree, I was so excited I had to put it up immediately! ... Continue Reading

Happy Birthday Lisa!

Last Reply by sjk73 1416769835.12 | Started by Alberti QVC Host in Beauty Banter, Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities

When I first met Lisa it was a mix of emotions.  I was excited, scared, happy, nervous (I was sweating bullets), and ohhhh so apparently SHY! It was one of the few times in my life I couldn’t speak a peep! Then she smiled…and suddenly…I could be me again.  We chatted, we laughed, and then we said our good nights.  Lisa has a way about her.  In an instant, she took away my fears and made me feel like I could fly! That was a few years ago when I was a brand new guest at the Q.  I didn’t get to see Lisa in person again until over a year later wh... Continue Reading

EASY Chicken Pot Pie

Last Reply by mugss 1415195593.383 | Started by Alberti QVC Host in Beauty Banter, Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Living on the west coast, I never really had any cravings for “comfort food” beyond the occasional burger.   My main staple foods were salmon, grilled chicken, spinach and kale – I know what you’re thinking – a little boring.  Well, the change of seasons on the east coast certainly has me HUNGRY and feeling extra creative in the kitchen.  I decided to try out a chicken pot pie and invited Lisa over to help me eat it!! Together we ate more than half of it!! I paired it with a simple kale salad which you’ll see in the pictures below.  ... Continue Reading

Fall Beef Stew

Last Reply by horseyak 1414136970.56 | Started by Alberti QVC Host in Beauty Banter, Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities

When the weather gets cooler, there is nothing more satisfying than a hearty and savory meal to come home to.  This Beef Stew recipe is one that I’ve been turning to for years to welcome family and friends in on a cold autumn night.  What makes it perfect for Fall is that it incorporates some seasonal root vegetables like celery root, carrots and parsnips.  I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do!  Fall Beef Stew Ingredients: 2 pounds beef stew meat (I use chuck roast) rolled in flour 2 carrots (sliced thick) 2 parsnips (sliced thick) 1 celery root (roughly cho...
