Friday: How to Make Over Anything (Repeat). How to Make Over Anything. Kristan shows us how a few simple touches can makeover those clothes filling up your closet. Also, changes you can make to your house to get it to sell faster and, in general, how to make over anything. Gretta joins in the fun by making over an audience member. Stuffed Pepper Stoup, Caesar Salad with Fried Ravioli, and Chicken & Vegetable Casserole (check out my review) are what's for dinner. White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies from Tate's Bake Shop are the snack of the day.


  1. I didn't think you could put RR and the words "stain removal" in the same paragraph and have it work. It was a funny segment. I feel sorry for the production assistant who had to put up with the stains...and her attempts at removing them. OxyClean seems to work the best, especially on wine.

  2. I have friends who swear by OxyClean - it was a fun segment.
