Are You On The PCH Blog Team?

Hello, fans and friends,

I’ve been noticing something happening lately here on the PCH blog. Something sweet and wonderful. Our fans are turning into one big caring, supportive team!

Take a look yourself at the comments you’ve posted. Often, someone else will respond, and then another and another – whether it’s with words of comfort, faith or reassurance. Call it virtual hand-holding, but there are a lot of you holding hands right now … and we blog writers just love that!

PCH Blog Team

One of our fans, Vickie S., commented recently, “PCH is a great team of people. And we are an important part of the team. We’re important because we cheer for each other and encourage each other. When the winners are announced, though we feel disappointment, we are thankful that a fellow PCHer is blessed. We are a blessed team.

We appreciate that we have a loyal team of fans who are so passionate about winning and equally passionate about PCH. And we on the PCH blog team couldn’t do our jobs without you, because you inspire us to come up with new ideas for the blog – like this post you’re reading right now!

Teamwork is what makes the world go ’round. When members of a sports team play together, there is only one goal in mind – winning. When medical teams perform surgeries or announce new breakthroughs in health, lives are saved. And when workers cooperate to create successful outcomes – whether it’s making a great product or delivering excellent service – they can accomplish so much more than one person can on his or her own.

So, whether you are posting comments on this blog, the PCH Search&Win blog or the PCH Play&Win blog… cheering for our extremely fortunate Sweepstakes winners… or simply making each other feel good …

PCH Merchandise Makes Dorothy’s Fall Fantastic!

Dorothy mixes up something delicious using the Flour & Sugar Keepers, Ultra Beater and Microfiber Cleaning Cloths we sell at PCH!

Happy Fall Blog Readers!

It’s me, Dorothy Stevens, the Cook & Food Stylist here at PCH.  It’s been awhile since I’ve been on the Blog, but you may remember that I just love Autumn recipes! I mean, there’s nothing better than coming in to a warm, delicious smelling kitchen on a cool fall day.  And since there are so many parties coming up — and cupcakes are always a big hit — I figured I’d come back on the Blog today to share a special Coconut Cupcake recipe with you.

What I love most about this recipe is that it’s so light and delicious, it’s perfect for any season.  And, it’s so easy — especially with the help of some of my favorite PCH Merchandise: The Flour & Sugar Keepers, Ultra Beater & Microfiber Cleaning Cloths.

Dorothy  Products

Here’s what you’ll need:

2 large eggs

11 tablespoons softened butter

1 teaspoon coconut extract

2/3 cups coconut milk

1 1/2 cups flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup coconut

Here’s what you do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Get your muffin pan lined and ready

Whisk butter, sugar and salt until creamy

Tip: PCH Merchandise like the Flour & Sugar Keepers come in handy for recipes like this when you don’t need a whole bag of sugar or flour.

Dorothy  All

Whisk in your eggs, coconut milk, coconut extract and coconut

Tips:  Use the Ultra Beater to help make this task easier on your hands with Press & Spin action! 

Dorothy  Whisking

Add flour and baking powder and whisk until combined.  Put your batter in the cupcake cups and bake for 20 minutes.

Now, you can frost them however you’d like — but here’s a special surprise tip — I like to use PUMPKIN frosting and coconut flakes on top to give my cupcakes a FALL-TASTIC flavor my friends always rave about.

Here’s a quick Pumpkin Frosting Recipe: Mix 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup pumpkin puree and a pinch of cinnamon until smooth. After frosting your cupcakes, don’t forget to sprinkle coconut flakes on top!

When the job’s all done, I just use my handy Microfiber Cleaning Cloths to wipe down my prep area.  They’re a great way to clean up quick, and I can just throw them right in the wash!

Dorothy Clean Up

And there you have it — my ultimate Coconut Cupcake Recipe.  Don’t they just look delicious?

What Would You Say If You Saw The Prize Patrol At The Airport?

Even if we are not dressed in our official Prize Patrol blue blazers, the TSA security personnel at airports know why Danielle, Todd and I are getting on a plane.  They see the big, bright Prize Patrol logos on our wheelie-suitcases, and their usual stony faces break into smiles.  “Are you sure you aren’t looking for me?” they ask.  “Don’t you want to give me that Big Check right here and now?”

Other passengers waiting on line quickly catch on and exclaim “Here I am!” or “You found me!”

Sadly we have to inform these folks that we are on our way to deliver a prize to someone else — or maybe that we just surprised someone nearby and are on the way home.  “But don’t despair” we say: “You could be our next big winner if you enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.”

“Gee, I never thought you guys were real!” some people say.  That’s kinda disappointing – because we’ve been televising actual “winning moments” and appearing on national TV shows for over twenty-five years.  But we’re happy that these folks are excited and encouraged by meeting us in person.

“Yep, we are absolutely real.” we tell them.  Then we point to the oversized package we are carrying. “That’s the Big Check!”

“OMG,” they reply.  “How do I get in on this?”

“Just go online to and enter,” we tell them.  “It’s as simple as that.”

Well, you regular PCH Blog readers already know how easy it is to enter our fabulous sweepstakes.  And you know that besides our million-dollar-and-up SuperPrizes, PCH awards a multitude of prizes worth hundreds and thousands of dollars, even daily prizes.  And you know that our rules allow you to enter our sweepstakes every day – thereby giving you more chances to win.  Good for you!  That’s valuable knowledge that a lot of folks don’t have.

Here’s hoping that the next time we go to an airport we’ll be on the way to your door.  Before you go, comment below and tell us – what would YOU say if you saw the Prize Patrol at the airport – or better yet, at your front door!

Good luck!

Prize Patrol Ambassador
