Join me and special guest chef Mario Batali for a surprise-filled hour including a look back at our most memorable moments! And I will announce on-air the lucky winner of ALL the studio audience giveaways from the month. TUNE IN TO SEE IF IT’S YOU! Thanks to all of you who joined the fun leading up to our celebration by uploading pictures of your most memorable moments. Take a look at some of the great pictures we received, as well as some of my most unforgettable moments of the show.
2 Snoop Dogg made mashed potatoes with me, adding his own special touches to my recipe.
3 I showed Jesse Tyler Ferguson how to brine a turkey for Thanksgiving.
4 It's always fun being with Tim Gunn. He explained a bit of the art of draping fabric.
5 With me wearing some bling, Diddy gave a lesson in Rap.
6 Chefs Eric Ripert and Anthony Bourdain chatted with me about their favorite "food porn" picks.
7 During a special exercise-themed show, S Factor founder, Sheila Kelley and I demonstrated a few moves from a sensual and intense pole-dancing workout.
8 One of my favorite actors, Russell Crowe, stuffed and roasted a Thanksgiving turkey with me.
9 Bette Midler seemed a bit intimidated as I demonstrated how to turn pumpkins into amazing and frightening Halloween decorations.
10 Octogenarian Betty White declared that you shouldn't get to her age and not know how to make pie crust!
11 Joey Kola and I joined beach volleyball Olympians Mike Lambert and Stein Metzger for a bit of fun.
12 Andy Dick acted his comical self when we made pumpkin-patch creatures together.
13 On Poncho Day, everyone, from guest David Spade, to audience members, to the crew, to Martha's pets, donned a poncho just like the one that I made famous.
14 Planting one on Cookie Monster!
15 How cool is it to get a boxing lesson from LL Cool J?
16 I kicked off the Hot Dog show with a 15-foot-long hot dog! It was modeled after the world's longest, a 197-foot 10-inch-long creation made in Tokyo, Japan.
18 A scene from the fourth annual celebration of Halloween on my television show - Blake Lively dressed as a beautiful Cleopatra and I as a frightful Medusa.
19 I taught Stephen Colbert, clad in his festive Christmas sweater, how to craft a mistletoe kissing ball. Clearly, he wasn't afraid to use it!
20 Former President Bill Clinton joined me for a very special Presidents' Day Show. We chatted about the wonderful Clinton Global Initiative and President Obama's first weeks in office.
21 My frequent guest stars, Francesca and Sharkey - Be sure to read about their adventures on The Daily Wag. http://thedailywag.com/
