Live Chat:Women Give Yourselves a Holiday... Go Some Where ... Take a Breather "How about - As women,

My ideas would be to discuss how we can take some time to rejuvenate by having:

EPISODE #60 - Holiday In Time aka The Santicon Day Origin
Written by Jonithan Patrick Russell
Rated U - for Universal Audiences!
It's been two years since the Bots were last heard from, but life aboard the Titan 2 continues more or less as we left off. It's boring. Putch has night watch duty. But what will he do when a strange being from within time comes to ask a major favor? Will he be able to cope with only Zim Tron as a traveling companion? Can they actually travel back in time to once again save Santicon Day? Or will the holiday season vanish from history? (Duration: 21:00)

Interior stylist Anna Brent is bent on making this holiday season not only memorable, but aesthetically pleasing. “You can give your home a cheerful and festive holiday update with easy-to-create crafts, says the Clips and Tips host, who also pens a furniture-shopping column for Examiner.com. “One great idea is to spruce up your dining table with Chritmas napkins. Get some wood napkin rings from a crafts store like Michaels or Jo-Anne’s and paint the outside trim in a gold or silver metalic. Then use them to hold solid green or red cloth napkins. Another fun idea is to make a paper journal for the table, where you and your guests can capture your sentiments from the event, then return to them at next year’s dinner.”
Chef Ernesto Hayes may be the hardest working man in the holiday-cooking biz, but he doesn’t regret a moment of extra time spent on his confectionary creations. “I did a screamin’ cheesecake at work today. It was a vanilla cheesecake but I added a little lemon to it. I needed it to be a little more sweet. Where I normally would add a cup and a quarter of sugar, I added a cup and three quarters of sugar. It was awesome,” says the host of D’Vas 2 Radio. "I’ll give you the recipe right now: One and a half pounds of cream cheese. When you go to the store and buy the Philadelphia brand, it’s usually in an eight-ounce block. So you’ll need three of those. Let’m get soft and put them in a mixer, using the paddle attachment. Add one-and-three-quarters cup of sugar and mix it real slow, so there’s no extra air in it. That way, when you bake it, it’ll rise then fall into a perfect shape, rather than like a souflee. Then add your eggs one at a time. Once that first egg is totally incorporated, stop the mixer and scrape the bowl and make sure it’s all smooth. Then add your second egg. And scrape the bowl again. If you don’t do it this way, you’ll have chunks of cream cheese in your cake.”
“Holiday parties and inappropriate questions go hand in hand. What is it with these events that people feel at liberty to bring up the most personal issues?” Where You Going in That? host Bridgette Reas asks Melissa Leonard. The etiquette guru’s explanation? Alcohol’s to blame! “People drink at parties,” says Melissa. “They feel loose, they feel happy. Plus, they feel like, we’re all friends here. So they’ll often ask, ‘Where are you working?’ Then they’ll say, ‘Oh, you’re still there? Well, ah, you’ve been there for seven years. Is there a promotion in your future?’ In those cases, where someone’s just being nosey, keep your response simple, like, ‘Oh, I love my job. I’m good at what I do. And I’m really happy there.’ Or if they ask, ‘So, when are you going to have kids?’ make it fun. Tell them: “If we decide to have kids, you’ll be the first to know. We’ll invite you to the baby shower!”
Nikita Harris is a catalogue of holiday-entertaining tips, from drinking responsibly to decking the halls for a song. “Make sure your guests have enough to eat. I learned that the hard way. I went out one evening and didn’t have an appetite prior to getting to the party so I didn’t eat. Then I had a couple of drinks and I was really, really ill the next morning. You have to have something in your stomach to absorb the alcohol,” says The VA Housewives host. “Another great tip is, don’t slave away in the kitchen all night. Be organized so once the party starts you can enjoy your guests. What makes or breaks a party is the atmosphere, and it’s up to the hostess to generate good conversation and have good music. Also, holiday decorations don’t have to blow your budget. Poinsettias really brigten up a room, or you can spraypaint branches gold and light a whole bunch of candles. That’s all very inexpensive.”
Candi Fox and Randy Slovacek you to save money this holiday season, without skimping on the fun or sacrificing tradition. “If you get a gift in a big box wrapped in really nice paper, you can reuse that same paper to wrap a gift you’re giving someone else. You’ll also be helping save the environment, and you’ll save yourself time,” says Randy, co-host of The Candi and Randy Show. “If you go shopping for Christmas cards or decorations that day after Christmas, you can save like 75 percent—for next year. So it takes some planning, but it’s worth it. But be sure to remember where you put it,” he adds. “Decorations can also be expsensive. But you can get pine cones throughout the year and spraypaint them gold or silver, put them in a clear vase and add some of those pinpoint Christmas tree lights. That’s a really cute way of making a room look festive without having to spend hundreds of dollars all around the house.”
Chef Carlton Whisonant doesn’t kid around when it comes to seasoning during the holiday, ah, season. “This time of year, we need to talk about fresh herbs. Because not only will they enhance your Thanksgiving and Christmas dishes, they have strong medicinal properties,” says the host of The Healing Chef. "So they’ll add excellent aroma and flavor to your cooking, while also making you healthier. A lot of the herbs that we use all the time—cumin, blue violet, bayleaf, alfalfa, garlic, aloe vera, dill, cilantro, coriander—can be found at a regular grocery store. And the herbs you keep in your kitchen cabinet in a shaker are fine for ocassional use. But to get the full medicinal and culinary value, you’ve got to use fresh herbs.”
