    Web Advertising

    really confused!!! Ok--so we are NOT allowed to have our Personal Website's listed in our signatures? I thought we were allowed to do that...it seems the more I read the email and everyone elses opinions/thoughts/etc. the more confused I get, and I generally don't have a problem understanding...

    Consultant gift

    Thanks Abby! Is that $25 for the entire tax year or per person? I have my Hostess from you-know-where fighting with me over payment (apparent miscommunication on my part, she says), so I'm trying to see if I can salvage anything from this show.

    Consultant gift

    I thought I read somewhere on the boards that there was a limit as to how much consultant can put down as a consultant gift for hosts/guests. Now I can't find it...can anyone help? Thanks!!!

    Okay, here's my

    finally closed the show I finally got this show closed out (endeup with $369 in guest sales)--talk about stress! I ended up knocking $7 off of her order which didn't even seem to phase her. Then she was completely confused as to how the hostess benefits worked--she seemed to think that any...

    Okay, here's my

    Ok, so I talked to my host today to close the show--well, it's not happening until tomorrow morning (so she says) and she still wants her money for the ingredients. :mad: I told her that the extra $15 in free product value that PC gives her is to help defray the costs of the ingredients, but...

    Medium Bar Pan Question

    Oil on the stone because that is the "box" said? Perhaps she misread the directions since no box of brownies I've ever used had directions for putting oil on the pan. Perhaps she misread the part that tells you to "grease the pan" and instead of greasing the bar pan (if it's not seasoned yet)...

    Jan Host & Guest Specials

    A quick question for everyone--how far in advance do you "allow" your guests see the Host/Guest Specials for the coming months? What I mean is, do you show them the specials in Oct. for Dec? or just November's? In November, do you show only the December specials or do you show the Jan. and...

    Holiday Demo Recipes

    Jessica--you beat me to it! :) The only thing I would change with the Pumpkin Dip is instead of eating it with apples, I would rather have it with graham crackers or animal crackers. Something about eating it with cold/room temp apples and the dip being warm just didn't work for me. I'm...

    Confused about Gift Certificates

    I've never seen a consultant's GC to use with only the consultant...how do you make it and what info should go on it? I think this could help drum up more business for me in the future because people would have to go to my website or call me to use it.

    Holiday Demo Recipes

    I just made the Spiced Pumpkin Pie Dip from the Fall/Winter 2004 Season's Best and it was great! People couldn't believe how easy and quick it was and that it tasted just like pumpkin pie. They said that it tasted and looked like you had been in the kitchen forever...that it was "fancier" and...

    Recipes not in the cookbooks

    Rebecca--Thank you so much! I'll be looking for it in the mail. Rita--great idea! Although I've had my website since I started with PC in June/July, I'm still trying to get the hang of using it to my advantage. I'm always poking around and looking at other consultant's websites to get...

    Recipes not in the cookbooks

    Abby, Unfortunately this guest has no computer, so I can't do that... :( Great idea though! I didn't even think of that... Rebecca, I just sent you a PM. Thanks!

    Okay, here's my

    Marlene, Yes, when I wrote out the ingredient list for her, I specifically wrote, "And as a thank to you for providing the ingredients for your show on Saturday, Pampered Chef is giving you an additional $15 in free product value to use." I don't know how much clearer I could have been to...

    Recipes not in the cookbooks

    For my show on Sat., I made the Garden Ranch Pizza and the Spiced Pumpkin Pie Dip--neither of these recipes are in any of our cookbooks other than the Seasons Best. I had no idea and when someone asked which cookbook they came out of, I kind of felt foolish--I didn't know they weren't in any of...

    Okay, here's my

    Free products Liz, I agree, too, that I shouldn't feel like I should refund her money, but at the same time, I'm a little torn between making sure she feels good about her show, so that anyone who books off of her won't be told that I was a bad consultant because of this, that, or the...

    Okay, here's my

    Host Planner Rebecca, I'm not even sure my hostess opened the packet I gave her! You would think that she would have known all of this, especially since she told me she used to sell Home Interiors, but wasn't sure if she wanted to try and start up with it again. I even tried to use that...

    I hope you get it! Donna, I sure hope you get the last piece of the Show to Go. I definitely know what it feels like to be treated as the caterer--my show was kind of "funky" feeling from the get-go. Even on the night of, I just didn't feel like going for whatever reason. Guess I know...

    Okay, here's my

    Okay, here's my "problem"--apparently my hostess thinks she should get reimbursed for the ingredients she had to buy for the show I did for her on Saturday evening--her purchases came to just over $24 and she thinks she should be reimbursed the $9 difference. Now granted I told her that she...

    Oriental theme games etc

    paper folding game How about an origami contest? Pick out a simple fold--even things like a paper hat or boat would work--and then see who can fold the fastest, neatest, not-quite-so-neat, etc. There are lots of origami folds on the internet you could probably look up, or even a book from the...

    Need a recipe from Celebrate cookbook

    alternate products Instead of the batter bowl, how about using one of the Stainless Steel Mixing bowls? You could mention the fact that they have rubber bottoms and are weighted on the bottom so they don't slide around on the counter/table top. They also have the thumb hole to help you get a...

    Garlic press and Lemon Zestor

    Hey!!! I got it!!!! Donna, I GOT IT! I had to play with it a bit and it kind of accidentally fell into place! :D Go figure! I kept trying for the longest time to figure out how in the world the little devil fit on the press--I heard that people clipped it on there to store, but I had no...

    Garlic press and Lemon Zestor

    cleaning attachment Does the cleaning piece attach to the garlic press when you are not using it? I keep thinking for some reason that it is suppose attach to the press, but mine doesn't stay on...am I just nuts or did I read this somewhere???

    Garden Ranch Pizza

    Something to balance the pizza? I have show coming up on Oct. 22 and I'll be doing the Garden Ranch Pizza! Can anyone suggest another quick demo to do that will compliment the pizza? The host was thinking two appetizers, but I'm thinking it might be too much, so a quick sweet one might be...

    That sounds yummy! Which cookbook is the recipe in? I think I might make that just for the family this coming weekend.

    Rice Cooker Cake?

    should be quicker.... The cakes made in the rice cooker plus should be quicker than the ones done in the stoneware. That's because the rice cooker is like a pressure cooker--enclosed and only vents the steam, so things cook faster in it. Kind of like when you boil water in a lidded pot...

    Recipe ideas for show w/25 people

    cream cheese brie Becky, My recruiter is the one who told me about the cream cheese brie--you take one package of crescent rolls and put it on the bottom of the small oval baker and cover the entire bottom of it. You place a block of cream cheese (8 oz) and cover the entire thing with your...
