As a child, my mother would take my sisters and I to a local farm, Linvilla Orchards. We would have so much fun in Pumpkin Land and would take a ride on a tractor pull hay ride and walk around and enjoy the season. Linvilla also hosts a small farm with animals that we would pet and feed. Linvilla Orchards has a wonderful market, and my sisters and I would get to choose one treat while we were there visiting. My fall favorite—caramel apples!! The candy apples are just too sticky and get stuck in my teeth!! I guess that is why I love the fall to this day.
While we were visiting Linvilla Orchards, my sisters and I all got to pick out our favorite pumpkin to take home. Well I would always pick out the biggest pumpkin, but for some reason my Mom wouldn’t let me take it home…maybe with a car full of kids the biggest pumpkin just wouldn’t fit in the car. Who knows!!
And now, so many years later, my youngest sister, Vickie, and I take her children there to have the great fun that we used to have when we were kids!!
To this day, I love anything pumpkin—coffee, cake, pie, muffins, ice cream…you name it, and I like it!! Not only do I love the fall and pumpkins, but also Halloween. I have already started my decorating!!
Does anyone recognize this tree and ornaments?? These are the from the Quacker Factory home collection we had a few years ago. I love this tree, it reminds me of Jeanne!
I got my love of the fall and pumpkins from my Mom, but I got my zest for Halloween decorating from Jeanne and Susan. I have learned so much from these two.
But one of my MOST favorite things in the fall is Quacker Factory’s FALL-O-WEEN SHOW!!!! On Sunday, September 28th, from 4-6 pm ET we will be hosting a live studio audience. We will be joined by many of our favorite Quackers along with my good friend Patrick Hoy and the beautiful hosts—Jayne Brown & Jennifer Coffey as the audience host. What wonderful surprises will be in store this year??? Well I guess you will just have to tune in to find out!
We'd like your help making Fall-O-Ween memories! Select your favorite Pumpkin sketch from our Quacker Pumpkin Patch on QVC’s toGather! The most hearted sketch will be featured in our 2015 Halloween season! Heart your favorite by 10/1. Click here to check them out!
Until next time—Quack, Quack for now!

On rainy days like today, I often want some comfort food - something to warm my belly and my soul! Well, this morning I woke up and ran out to get the simple ingredients for this very easy cabbage soup recipe my mother would make for me on days just like this! (Her version has a ham hock, but you can also use kielbasa, or go “no-meat” the way I did).
1 large onion
1 head of celery
2 cloves of garlic
A handful of fresh tomatoes
1 medium sized head of cabbage
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 can of diced tomatoes
64 oz vegetable stock
Salt, pepper, crushed red pepper
In a large stock pot, combine chopped onion, celery, minced garlic and sauté with 2 tbsp of olive oil over a medium heat. Stir and sauté until translucent (not browned). Add salt, pepper and crushed red pepper to your desired preference. Then stir in the fresh tomatoes, canned tomatoes, and vegetable stock; bringing the entire mixture to a boil. Once boiling, stir in the chopped cabbage and keep it simmering for 35-40 minutes.
I love to serve this soup with either garlic bread or crustini, but either way, it makes for a hearty and healthy meal! Enjoy!
Most of you know how much I love mason jars and how many DIY projects we’ve used them for on You’re Home with Jill. But what I haven’t told you is every time we make one of those crafts, I’ve kept the tops. It just feels wrong to throw those rings away in case I ever use the jars for their intended purpose!
So as I was recharging my creativity on Pinterest, I saw a terrific idea of how to use those mason jar rings…no jar required. Check this out.
Isn’t that a great pumpkin (Charlie Brown)? It’s so easy to make…here’s what you do:
Some stores sell mason jars in all different sizes and you could create your own little pumpkin patch! Or, you could use different spray paint to make multicolor pumpkins…some orange, yellow, or white. The more you make, the more cinnamon you'll need and what a terrific smell they'll give off!
Now that's my kind of weekend project--why not give this a try and send me your pumpkin pics. I’ll see you for You’re Home with Jill this Wednesday at 7pm ET.
From my home to yours,
It’s so hard to believe it’s been more than a year since I first came to QVC. I've learned so much in that time, and I'm so grateful for the incredible experiences—I look forward to many more to come!
Looking back on my time at QVC so far, the best part has been making wonderful new friends. I've met some lovely people on set, including the inimitable Lisa Robertson.
Some of the most amazing people I've met are our customers. I must confess that I can be nervous when I go on air, but the flood of emails, phone calls and even handwritten letters from friends of TATCHA always reassure me. Every bit of encouragement, advice and friendly feedback is greatly appreciated. My favorite notes are from women telling me how they feel in awe of their skin’s own beauty again. In that spirit, I wanted to share with you some of the lovely messages we've received from our wonderful QVC friends.
“I had the pleasure of living in Okinawa for three years, and at that time I was able to find all of the special secrets that the geisha used for their skin care. Their products were so calming and gave such wonderful results. Thank you for bringing your products to American women!” —Linda L.
“I praise your products and tell anyone and everyone about them. The simple-but-effective skin routine I follow, morning and evening, with TATCHA has made my skin awake, luminous and touchable. I don’t normally write reviews or letters to a company, but I felt with the results that I received and the continued nourishment I get from your products, I had to let you know how amazing they are.” —Karla H.
“You must know that you’ve created monsters in my house, as my two oldest daughters love the rice powder and almost have convinced me to get them their own jars!" —Gina D.
Thank you all for such a wonderful time at QVC so far. I look forward to more fun—and friends!—in the time ahead.
Fall is in the air, and here on the East Coast we can feel that slight chill in the air that tells us it's time to bring out the sweaters, boots, and scarves. The last two weeks have been particularly bittersweet for me as I watched my youngest son start kindergarten—bravely climbing those tall stairs to the unfamiliar classroom with new teachers and new friends-to-be. Is it too cliché to say it seems like just yesterday he was napping on my shoulder, burp cloth under his chin, sighing contentedly in his sleep? But life moves on for him and for me, and the kids being in school full time does has its advantages. There's more time to devote to all the other balls in the air: career, marriage, and personal well-being. Speaking of the latter, I encourage all of you to use this time of the year to take stock of what you're doing to take care of yourselves—mind, body, and spirit—and set some realistic goals that you can accomplish by New Year's.
And, of course, remember to enjoy the small joys that pop up in your daily lives along the way!
Ina Garten is coming to QVC this Sunday. I repeat…Ina Garten…the Barefoot Contessa…my foodie icon…is coming on Sunday. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am. (Or maybe you picked that up??) I’ve been watching Ina and making her recipes for many, many years and I just love her laid-back cooking style, the simplicity of her recipes, and her obvious passion for cooking and for life. I’m nervous, excited, anxious, and honored all at the same time.
I may or may not have begged our cookbook buyers to let me have a copy of Ina’s book early (Make It Ahead) and I’ve been busy in the kitchen!
Here's her Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes coming to life...
And Raspberry Baked French Toast...
And here are a few more recipes you’ll find this new book:
Please help me welcome Ina to our kitchen. Make It Ahead is already available on QVC.com and I’m already in love with her recipe and the premise of this new book. I’ve always been a fan of planning ahead to save yourself time later, and her recipes allow you to do just that.
Our last one-pot meal is coming up this Sunday…my Brunswick Stew! This terrific dish is a Southern favorite and is the very definition of fall comfort and easy, everything-in-the-pot cooking.
One-Pot Brunswick Stew
This recipe is prepared with the Le Creuset 7.25-Qt Oval French Oven with Grill Lid & Cookbook (K40244).
Go to David's Recipe Item Page for the full list of items that David has used in his recipes.
I haven’t asked a blog question in a few posts, foodies, so for today, tell me about your favorite one-pot soup or stew. Do you make a great gumbo or jambalaya? Maybe a chicken corn chowder? Ham and bean soup? I’ll see you Sunday at Noon ET, foodies. Did I mention Ina Garten will be in my kitchen!?!?
Keep it flavorful!
It is ‘Fang-Tastic’ to be back here at QVC Studio Park for our Annual Quacker Factory Fall-O-Ween show!!
Jeanne Bice loved, loved, LOVED Halloween!!! At Christmas time she got to decorate all of her trees – but at Halloween, she got to decorate all of YOU!!!!
If truth be known, Jeanne probably had more Halloween decorations than Christmas ones. She had ghosts in the yard, and her front porch was covered from one end to the other with tons of her famous signs – like my favorite that said ‘Witches Inn’ – and the doors were adorned with Candy Corn wreaths. There was also her family-of-ghosts that lit up – and we can’t forget her floating Dracula and the patch of pumpkins that even Charlie Brown would have approved of!
On Halloween night, she put out HUGE containers of candy on her porch – complete with ladles for the kids to scoop it all out – and if they only took a little, you could hear Jeanne screaming, “Scoop it out sweetie – take as much as you want!” She would set up a chair right next to the candy – and she would be wearing one of her many witches’ hats, along with her latest favorite Quacker Factory top.
Of course her favorite part of the whole evening was seeing all of the kids dressed up in their costumes! She treated that driveway of hers like it was a runway at a fashion show – and she giggled with delight at everything she saw! I’m sure that many of those costumes provided inspiration for her own creations!
My question for you today is:
What is your most favorite or memorable Halloween costume?!
Maybe it was one that your mother made for you when you were a child? Or maybe you made one for your own children? Or perhaps your grandchildren surprised you with showing up in the BEST costume ever?!
I’ll be chatting with you right here on this blog today, September 28th, for TWO whole hours starting at 4pm ET!!
So make sure to join me here, as I’ll be reading some of your answers to my question on air!
And if you want to see some of my favorite Quacker Factory Fall-O-Ween items from the past, click here: http://qvc.co/FalloweenQF
See you all at 4pm!!!
Quacker Hugs & Love!

I've always been a fan of Hello Kitty. As a kid I had Hello Kitty T-shirts, I collected puffy stickers and I even was the proud owner of a Hello Kitty Toothbrush!
Fast forward to high school - where fate brought me together with Hello Kitty again. I had a job at a small, luxury gift shop that carried a small assortment of Hello Kitty items and, as part of a store promotion, the store planned a "Come and Meet Hello Kitty Day"! ..... and guess who was picked from all the employees to wear the costume - Yours Truly! I had the big head, the cute gloves, the whole outfit - and no one could tell that it was me in there! But, I kept thinking that I was giving my identity away by the way I walked or waved or greeted the customers! I started seeing kids that I went to high school with - even that cute boy!!! Yikes!
All in all, it was a fun experience and it is one of my most fond memories of that time. As a matter of fact, my whole family still giggles about it to this day..... and now you all can too!
I hope I get to meet Hello Kitty AGAIN when she comes to QVC on ________. I am sure I will be over the moon!
All my best,
I tell my patients one of my core beliefs is that improving the appearance of your eyes can take years off your face. Understanding the importance of youthful-looking eyes inspired me to create my newest product: Ferulic + Retinol Eye Cream. I created it to help nourish the entire eye area. See below for my recommended application diagram:
This application idea came to me while treating patients in my office, and it ensures maximum results!
Use Ferulic + Retinol Eye Cream daily, morning or night. Apply cream by tapping gently. Start at the inner bridge of the nose, follow out towards the outer eye area, and finish over the brow bone. For double benefits, apply Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum and layer this cream on top.
The remarkable Before & After photos show how the fine lines of the eye area appear reduced and smoothed. This treatment is packed with hyaluronic acid, which holds 1,000 times its weight in water, drawing hydration into the skin and locking in moisture.
This creamy formula helps the eye area appear younger-looking, which is visible in our Before & After photos below:
Check out more Before & After shots by clicking here.
See you next Tuesday on Tuesday Night Beauty at 9pm ET.

Hey there—it’s Ashley, QVC Copy Editor, with details on a new Denim & Co. collection I think you’ll be interested in!
It seems like just yesterday I was writing to give you the lowdown on the popular Denim & Co.® “How” bottoms. When I interviewed Program Host Carolyn Gracie and Designer Gary Goben in March about the flattering, fashionable pants, they mentioned something else they were super excited about: Denim & Co. Active! I wanted to make sure I gave you the full scoop on the athleisure looks, as well—and what better time to dish it out than fall, when comfort is key to just about every autumn activity.
This time I had the pleasure of speaking with Gary and Program Host Albany Irvin, who told me how excited she was to help design a line of more fitted activewear. “We really didn’t have anything else like it at QVC,” Albany told me, “so I leaped at the opportunity to help in the planning stages.” In the design phase, the team envisioned the collection appealing to a variety of women, particularly those who lead an active lifestyle and need the wardrobe to go along with it. “Whether you’re exercising, walking the dog, or shopping, there is something for everyone who wants a sleek, fashionable look,” Gary shared.
I think all women can agree: comfort and style is the combo we want with all of our outfits. As Albany explained, “The Active line gives us girls a go-to spot in our closets for sophisticated, current, and quality athleisure pieces. When I get home from work, I exchange my ‘dress’ clothes for my ‘play’ clothes, but I still want to look pulled together and fashionable.”
Albany is wearing the Cowl-Neck Long-Sleeve Knit Hoodie (A257349) in Antique Rose.
So what makes these Active pieces different, besides their fitted design? “This collection offers a lot of new details and print ideas that we are very excited about,” Gary said. “These styles have a more modern feel while still being true to the Denim & Co. brand. We also created several pieces that coordinate, but of course you can also pair them with items already in your wardrobe.” Speaking of prints, I was so excited to see lots of leopard in this line! It turns out Albany shares my animal instincts: “I think animal prints have become a classic in our wardrobe. They’re a bit flirty and feminine, too!” And, as Albany pointed out, these pieces are perfect for layering, which is right on trend for these cold-weather months.
Gary and Albany are holding up the best-selling Knit Pullover with Animal-Print Inset and Hood (A257256) in Charcoal Gray.
You may be wondering about sizing, since these pieces are more fitted than the Denim & Co. styles you’re used to. As always, make sure to refer to the QVC Fit & Style Guideto determine what will look best on you, but know that these tops and bottoms will hug your body a little closer. “I think you should order your true size in a bottom,” Gary advised, “but if you want something not quite as fitted for the top, then you should size up.”
But go with the size that will make you feel comfortable. “I think fit is so much about personal taste,” Albany said. “I ordered one of the tunics in two different sizes—one to wear with jeans and a larger size to pair with skinny tees and leggings.”
Albany is wearing the best-selling Knit Animal-Print Long-Sleeve Top (A257254) in Charcoal Gray.
I wondered if Albany would be joining Program Host Carolyn Grace on air during any of her Denim & Co. shows at 11am ET on Tuesdays. “I hope so—we absolutely adore each other,” she told me. “We both have a no-nonsense sensibility, but we love to laugh. We’ve done holiday shows together in the past, so I think it could happen. Maybe we should start a petition!”
Get your pens ready, Denim Divas! And happy shopping!
Family traditions are so important. They bring different generations together and form lifelong memories. Last weekend I was able to pass my love of Michigan football on to my grandson, Cole Daniel, as we set off for his Michigan football game in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It was a weekend that neither of us will ever forget.
Our journey began early Friday, September 19th when I picked up my daughter, Kirstyn (Cole’s mom), and Cole on our way to the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania airport. We flew to Detroit, Michigan where my brother-in-law, George, picked us up. George is married to my older sister, Margie Lou, and he is the reason I am lifelong fan of the Michigan Wolverines. I grew up in St. Joe, Michigan which is located on Lake Michigan in the southwest corner of the state. George had me watching their games on television when I was a young boy. When I was a teenager he took me to my first game at the University of Michigan. Kirstyn started watching Michigan football games with me from the time she was a little girl. I took her to the Big House in Ann Arbor for her first Michigan football game during her sophomore year of college. So, George passed the tradition to me; I passed it on to Kirstyn and now Kirstyn and I are passing it down to Cole.
After we checked into our hotel rooms, we drove into downtown Ann Arbor and visited the University of Michigan campus. We were able to see the entry area of the Chrysler Arena where the Michigan basketball team plays its home games.
Then we were off to Schembechler Hall where we parked in Coach Brady Hoke’s parking place (we had permission from the campus police) and then took pictures with the statue of Michigan’s legendary football coach, Bo Schembechler.
The M Den was a “must stop” for us as we had to load up on Michigan gear and buy Christmas gifts for the family. I bought Cole a high tech Michigan Football Player toy that he loves. The M Den is a Michigan fan’s dream. It houses three floors of maize and blue gear!
After shopping, we were hungry so we found a cute restaurant in the downtown area and enjoyed a wonderful meal. By the time we got back to our hotel we were exhausted so we got to bed early to be ready for Saturday’s big game. Since we had two adjoining rooms, Cole was able to come over and hang out with the guys when he needed a little break from mom.
Saturday morning we were up and ready! After a hearty breakfast, we drove into Ann Arbor to get a good, affordable parking spot. After walking around and enjoying lots of camaraderie with fellow Michigan fans, we arrived at the Big House (I had to explain to Cole why they call a football stadium the Big House.) Michigan’s football stadium is the biggest in the country and, on this day, there were 103,000 fans on hand for the game against the Utah Utes.
When we went inside the stadium little Cole’s eyes were the size of quarters! He couldn’t believe how HUGE the stadium is! We lunched on stadium Brats, chips and salsa. There was tons of entertainment from the music, the cheerleaders, the band and the players. One of the coolest (and most entertaining for Cole) was the pre-game tribute to aviation where fifteen different airplanes, helicopters and jets flew over the stadium. As soon as we sang the last word of the national anthem, fighter jets roared over the stadium and kicked in the afterburners. Cole thought it was cooler than any movie he had ever seen!
Michigan’s football stadium features two, HUGE, high definition video screens on both ends of the stadium. Videos, replays and pictures are constantly running. Guess whose picture made it up onto the Big Screen? Kirstyn took Cole’s picture down by the field and texted it to the number on the screen. All of a sudden they put Cole’s picture up and I was able to capture the shot with my phone. He couldn’t believe he was up on those huge screens! Talk about a lifetime memory!!!
I decided since I have only been to the Big House a handful of times in my life, that I would get the best seats I could find, so we were in row 51 on the Michigan 45 yard line! Cole really got into singing the fight song and shouting “M Go Blue!” along with his mom, his papa, his uncle George and about 100,000 other Michigan fans.
Unfortunately, our Michigan Wolverines lost that day. But it wasn’t about winning or losing for us. It was about four generations coming together and enjoying a lifelong tradition. I will never, EVER forget this amazing trip. Kirstyn and I took tons of great photos that she is going to turn into a scrapbook. We had the time of our lives. Our Michigan football tradition is strong and our support will last all of our lives. No matter who your team is, I hope you enjoyed reading about our adventure. Cheer for your team in good times and bad times. And - one more thing -
“M Go Blue!!!!!”
With the calendar start of fall, we know it for sure; the summer of 2014 is officially a wrap. This summer was a milestone for me because I got to visit my family, outside of the Christmas holiday, for the first time in decades! Two glorious trips filled with lazy days and much frolicking.
Lazy: I spent time in the hammock, or playing Yahtzee with my two nieces.
My brother and I would sit and chat in the yard.
The weather was so beautiful that we’d have dinner outside.
I had cherished alone time with my siblings and my mom.
Frolicking: I got to be goofy with my nephews. My oldest nephew is dangerously close to being my height!!!
We dressed up for a Giants game, and just dressed up for fu
And I made a return trip to see my sister’s theater company perform South Pacific. High school students performed the play, and they were phenomenal!
2014 was a glorious summer, and now it’s fall! Time to get out the sweaters and boots and get cozy. When you look back at your summer what will you remember most, and what are you looking forward to this fall?
Happy Monday! I'll be seeing you at noon for QCheck where I'll be presenting today's TSV, the skirted leggings from Legacy! They're an updated take on a very popular style we presented earlier this year. I love them because they're super easy to style a thousand ways...and to prove it I sent a pair all the way across the country to my best friend Kim in Seattle!
She's got an amazing sense of style and it shows. I asked her to work her black skirted leggings however she wanted, and I'd do the same with my olive pair. I love how our individual flair shows even though 50% of our outfit is identical!
Oh, and I threw in a bonus pic to show these can still be worn super casual...I wore them for yoga that night!
Thanks to Kim for playing along...you have sooo much more style than me as usual, girl! I miss you!!
Join me on my Facebook page at noon and answer our style question of the day during QCheck! See you then!
Place the chicken pieces in a 9 X 13 baking dish. In a separate bowl, mix the jam, onion soup mix, and the salad dressing together and pour over the chicken. Bake one hour at 350 degrees. Serve over rice or noodles.
Another option: Cut the boneless, skinless chicken pieces into large bite-sized pieces and place in a slow cooker. Cover the chicken pieces with the mixture and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
Hello my fellow LCNY fashionistas,
Happy fall! Meghan and Matt have moved in to their new condo, Sarah and I have been squeezing in time together while she is on a two week vacation, but most importantly, my Kevin came home for all of sixteen hours. I just needed to see him in person and to smell and hug him. You know as a Mom each of our darlings have their own smell, call me crazy but his Mom needed a fix.
Since fall is in the air....we have a new convertible drape cardigan debuting tonight on PM STYLE. There are several different ways to style this, so I wanted to show you a few ways I styled it below...
This is me just wearing it straight, as it comes
Here I styled it with one side tossed over the other
Lastly, I knotted it at the points and then pulled it behind my head.
This piece is stylish yet cozy, a statement piece, a canvas to make your own, or warm and cozy for travel and fireside.......need I go on. So many ways to style it!
Please join me tonight in PM STYLE while I brag on this beautiful design and show you many ways to wear this. See you tonight
The amazing Ina Garten was in our QVC kitchen yesterday and I had so much fun!
Those are just some of the folks who helped make yesterday’s presentation so successful…a GREAT big thank you to everyone at QVC for helping me introduce you to such a culinary legend. I hope you enjoyed meeting her as much as I did. And, I hope you were one of the lucky ones to pick up her new cookbook...Make It Ahead. It sold out yesterday, but is available on Waitlist if you’d like a copy.
It feels like a fall day here in West Chester…how about where you are?
In fact, I went to the farmers’ market today to pick up some of those wonderful harvest ingredients and was overwhelmed by the colors around me. I usually wait to decorate for autumn in October, but October will be here on Wednesday! I’d better get busy!
October will be another very exciting month. I can hardly believe it, but my new cookbook, Back Around the Table, ships to your door on October 7. I can’t wait to hear what you think of the new recipes, which I like to describe as comfort foods with a twist. You can still pick up your copy at the Advance Order price. And if you haven’t seen the on air presentation yet, we’re featuring it this week and next on In the Kitchen with David.
In honor of the changing of the seasons as well as the launch of my cookbook, our October theme on ITKWDis Classics with a Twist. First up this Wednesday night is bound to be your new favorite game-day dip: Philly Cheesesteak Dip!
Check out the recipe on QVC.com. Then, give this blog question some thought: do you have a signature dip? Something you make for game day or another family get-together? Maybe Spinach and artichoke? Crab dip? French onion? How about cannoli dip? See you Wednesday at 8pm ET.
Keep it flavorful!
Angel, Jennifer, Patrick and I had a great time with all of our “Ghoul” Friends that attended the Quaker FactoryFall-O-Ween live audience show. Thank you for tuning in. I hope you felt like you were in the studio with us. Here are some behind the scenes pics.
