    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...

    Making my 1st newsletter thru e-mail

    Restricted Show Days

    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...

    I've already met the $2000 mark in the sell a thon! :D I've been selling PC since last September, but over the past 6 months, my business has really taken off! I still have 3 kitchen shows left this month, so who knows, maybe I'll have some really awesome shows and actually hit the $5000...

    Need recipe ideas

    For the main dish for the men, I might do the Taco Ring. It's very easy and with all of the garnishing ideas (pepper for salsa ect...) it really turns out to be a WOW recipe. :D For the dessert, I've been making the Chocolate Mousse Cups (I use the phyllo dough in the stoneware muffin pan)...

    Microwave cake question

    Frosted Microwave Cake What I do is...after I have placed the cake batter in the fluted stone, then I plop the frosting on top of the batter. (not whipped frosting...it's too light and will boil over and make a HUGE mess in the microwave!! :eek: ) I found this out the hard way! :rolleyes...

    Cancelled Shows

    You could put them as a show under your name and still get the commission for the show. There is no where that it says that we can not host our own show and not get the commission for it. :) I hope this helps, because pchefinski's ideas are wonderful!! :D Thanks, Nancy Lindsey

    Help me quickly

    Like previously stated by another consultant, I also mail out the invitations for my hosts. I have not had a cancellation or even reschedules since I started doing this in May. :) I would recommend doing this. I too tried to host my own open house last year, when I first started with PC, and...

    Consultant as the host You can be the Consultant and host your own show AND get all of the rewards for hosting a show. That is how I was able to build my kit when I first started over a year ago and that is what I have had some of my recruits do this year. :D So it's up to you, you can...

    Not accepting cash???

    Cash issue Here is a possible solution for when you receive cash at a show for payment. Once you've closed the show, take the cash received and purchase a money order for it and name yourself as the payee. That way, you now have a check that you can deposit through the mail. (And you know...

    Doing a joint show with other direct sales organizations

    I did a joint party with Southern Living @ Home last month. It wasn't one of my biggest shows, but the comm. sales were at $500. I can not say the same for my SLAH friend, she didn't have enough sales to make it a successful show! I would not do it again as a joint show, but it did help me...

    Down, but hopefully not out...yet!

    I carry around the catalog tote ($15 on the supply order form) as my purse, and it has generated some leads! I would also suggest to go to the grocery store with cookbooks, talk to the people in the isles (ask if they know where to find something...they will not only try to help, but they will...

    Need help for my Mexican themed show!

    I personally didn't care for the mole pizza either, but for a dessert with an Ole flare, I would suggest to do the Strawberry Margarita Microwave Cake! It is absolutely awesome! Let me know if you need the ingredients.

    Asian Show saturday - recipe tips?

    I've done the potstickers at a few of my shows. What I've found that works really well, is to recruit 3-4 people to come up and help me make them. Otherwise it will take forever to do all of them. It also gets them out of the seat and becomes an interactive show! The ones that have come up...

    Host hasn't choosen her recipe yet...

    I would give her 2 different options for recipes that you are comfortable with. And "make" her choose. If she still is ho hum about choosing...choose for her. Tell her that it would be "fun" to do such and such recipe and then proceed to give her the shopping list for the recipe that you have...

    Another recipe question...pot stickers

    Try setting timer for a few minutes less then the recipe actually calls for. After checking them, you can either take them out, or let them bake for longer.
