    Profiterole Puffs

    I'm doing these for a St. Patrick's Day Themed Cooking Show, and I'm coloring the filling green. I had originally planned on getting a vanilla frosting and tinting that green as well, but since the green coloring shows through the puffs, I'm going to use the chocolate like the recipe calls for...

    My first show .... mexican recipes?

    Also the Mexican Stuffed Calzone from a few seasons ago is excellent! And it definately offers the wow factor when you pull it out of the oven. I also like the Fabulous Fajita Pizza (All the Best). Very simple and not a lot of ingredients to worry about either. Nancy

    BAH! I'm only *just* going to miss my SS3

    Don't give up! Also, when you are making your calls, be sure to let your customers know what products are being retired in addition to the products that are increasing in price. They may be more apt to purchase something if they feel this will be the last time they will be able to get it! :D

    My business is failing..

    Hi, As a perfectionist myself...it was hard for me to come to the realization that I couldn't have a "perfect show". But something that I've stumbled upon that I say at shows when I do fumble or make a mistake somewhere along the way is to say..."I'm not a perfect chef, I'm a Pampered Chef!"...

    Thinking About PC

    There are a lot of us that started PC while just starting out in a new city/state! I found it a little rocky at first, but it forced me to step outside of my comfort zone and meet people! I always thought that I was timid, but when I stepped out it easier than I thought it would be! I became...

    Question about Booking Benefit

    You got it! That is the only way that Pampered Partner will accept the 2 host specials. And as far as HO questioning the two orders for the host. I've done this since they've changed the host program last March, and they have never called me or questioned it. And for the hosts having to pay...

    Question about Booking Benefit

    Absolutely!! Mark her as a booking, just like you would one of her guests. Then when it comes time for her other show, you will just need to add her as a guest as well as the host to receive the 2nd host special. Unfortunately, she'll have to pay shipping on the 2nd special. I hope this made...

    I generally do Thursday, Friday & Saturday shows. As far as Friday's having low attendance...well, my show this past Friday...there was 23 people there! It all depends on how well you coach your hosts! I personally mail or email the invitations for my hosts, as well as making the reminder...

    Getting host to close the show ????

    I agree with AFwife. Call your neice one last time and tell her that if you don't here from her by such and such date with enough orders to close the show, you are going to have to cancel her show and put the orders on one of your other shows. If she doesn't contact you by the date you told...
