Several years ago Jeanne wanted to host a Cookie Exchange show on QVC. She partnered with Jayne Brown & Pat James-Dimentri , and they co-hosted the show during a Fashionably Early program. This show was so successful and everyone had a blast!! And can I tell you– there were a million cookies!!! We had recipes from Judith Ripka, from the models and from the hosts. What a fun filled morning!!!
Thankfully we have been able to continue this “sweet” tradition at QVC. Out next Cookie Exchange show will be held on November 11, 2014 from 1-3 pm eastern. We will have lots of great surprises for you! See you then!
