Today on Home & Family
It's a big day on Home & Family. We're bringing you today's show from our brand new house at Universal Studios, Hollywood! Today, Mark and Cristina cut the big red ribbon and give you the grand tour of our new house. From familiar looks to brand new features, Mark and Cristina take you inside all the nooks and crannies of our new home. Plus, you'll get a special preview of some of our upcoming DIY projects throughout the house!
We couldn't start a new chapter in a new house without one of our Home & Family favorites, " The Gourmet Dad," Dean McDermott. Building on a tradition started by fellow Canadian Shania Twain, Dean stops by to plant a lemon tree in our new back yard. Plus, Dean gives some great tips for cultivating trees at your own home and also explains why lemon trees make great housewarming gifts!
