Miso Maple Slow Roasted Chicken with Squash

Before starting the dish make sure to pat the chicken dry. Seasoning should go both inside and outside of the chicken. You should also truss the chicken, or tie the legs together, to keep the chicken moist. “Love, Fall and Order” premiered Saturday, October 12th at 9pm/8c.
DIY BROKEN CHINA JEWELRY
China sets can be great family heirlooms but if yours is broken or looking worse for wear you can transform it into beautiful jewelry with Orly’s DIY Broken China Jewelry.
For things first, Orly says if you have a broken plate, don’t fix it. Break it some more using a heavy plastic bag to break up the china to use for jewelry.
Sand off the edges to make them softer to the touch and get rid of bumps.
Wrap the pieces in foil tape to really emulate the look of jewelry hardware. Make sure your foil matches the color of your pendant and chain.
E6000 glue will help bond the china to your pendant, rather than hot glue.

4 C’s of Parenting
Parenting expert and best-selling author Erika Katz (“Coach Parenting: Raising Teenagers with Advice from Pro Football’s Greatest Head Coaches”) breaks down the 4 C’s of parenting: Care, Consistency, Choice, Consequences.
Kids are living in the age of Google and often have the why for everything making “because I said so” obsolete. Erika’s tip, approach kids with rules from a place of caring.
Consistency is key as kids crave routine and often don’t like surprises. Whether its rules or a set time for dinner, make sure they are always the same. This repetition helps create boundaries.
Kids push back on boundaries as they want to make their own choices. It is important as a parent to teach them how to make good decisions on their own.
The big “C” kids don’t like is consequences. When choosing a punishment for kids to teach a lesson, make sure the consequence is not harmful to you as the parent.
Dr. Sonia Debunks Old Wives’ Tales
We have all heard the Old Wives’ tales for skin care and maybe even tried them. However, some are just not true. Dermatologist and “The Doctors” host Dr. Sonia Batra helps set the record straight.
The first myth debunked is that toothpaste helps get rid of pimples. Wrong! Toothpaste irritates skin and causes redness and peeling. Instead use tea tree oil or a chamomile tea bag.
Honey is not just for the common cold; it can help heal wounds as it protects skin from bacteria when applied directly. Be sure to use fresh honey from a new bottle or even medical grade honey.
Ever hear shaving causes hair to grow back thicker? False! Shaving does not change the thickness of your hair.

Black Cod in Spiced Tomato Brodo
Executive Chef at Chamisal Vineyards, Peter Janiak is reeling in the catch of the day to make Black Cod in Spiced Tomato Prodo. This recipe is easy to prepare perfectly at home just like it is in the restaurant by pan searing it to get a nice skin crispy. In order to achieve this dry out the fish as much as possible and do not add salt before placing it in the pan. When making the sauce let the tomato paste scorch a bit to add depth and richness to the flavor.
Fine to Fab
Lawrence shows how a few simple swaps can update your wardrobe. Lawrence shares how your outfit can go from fine to fab in no time
A dress with a vest is great for fine for daytime. Make it fab by losing the vest and replacing it with a leather jacket. Top off this day to night look by letting your hair down.
A tote and flats are fine for a day out running errands, but what if you need to quickly get ready for a dinner date? Simply swap your tote for a small bag with fun hardware and replace your slip-ons with some ankle boots for a fab date night look.
A blazer and jumpsuit combo for the office is a fine fall look. You can make it fabulous by replacing the blazer with a light-weight, flowing jacket. Swap your work bag with smaller cross body bag. You can also take your scarf and turn it into a belt which adds a nice cinched look to your waist.
