editor’s letter

And, in a flash, it’s December, and we’ll be in the midst of the holidays and Christmas (with the Lunar New Year hot on its heels). Just thinking about it can be unnerving - stressful. But don’t you worry. This issue has been planned specially to help you STAY CALM & CARRY ON. We know a large part of Christmas is about family and friends gathered around a feasting table, reflecting on the past year and being grateful for those around us. Sure, there’s nothing wrong with store-bought, but if you have a bit more time for prep, you (and your guests) will love the roast turkey recipe with our special Cumberland sauce, in “The Main Event”, page 66. And we guarantee the duck fat roast potatoes will be a hit!…

Sweet Santarinas ‘Tis the season to be jolly, and for these celebrities, that means dressing up as good Ol’ Saint Nick (only way prettier!) Secret Santa We wouldn’t mind getting a kiss under the mistletoe from any of these sexy Santas. Can you guess who they are? Love In Vein Can blood type determine a couple’s romantic compatibility?

striking a rhythm

On the surface, Blake Lively may look like she has it all. Married to a Hollywood star in Ryan Reynolds and mother to three daughters, she actively stars in movies, and always look incredibly put together. But growing up, Blake was a gangly and withdrawn teenager whose insecurities were a constant source of anguish. “I was kind of quiet and shy growing up,” Blake admits. “I had problems in high school with some girls. And (as) I was tall, I felt insecure standing out in a crowd when I wanted to be alone, so I spent a lot of time by myself, lost in my thoughts.” What brought Blake out of her cocoon was the confidence she gained from acting classes. “It wasn’t until I started acting classes that I was able to…
