    Lynnda, you look great dear so don’t sweat it.

    For those of you that don’t know Lynnda was dealing with a 3 day migraine and barely any sleep on the night we shot this show. The girl really leaned into the pitch and took one for the team, so give her some props please!


  6. Thanks for the recipe, my sister has won for the many years “Best apple Pie in New England”…I am making and bringing this for Thanksgiving. It will be a challenge but I think I will be able to say “No Pie for ME” Thanks for all your help

    Love and hugs to Lynnda for going that extra mile for all of us. A migraine, and she cooked, too! Also big hugs to Toni for a lovely rendition of Elvis! And finally, big congrats to my friend LeeLee for being featured on the Drop Zone. I miss you, chicky!
