Martha Stewart is the
ultimate housewife, without even being married. She cooks, she cleans, she makes the bed with her own sheets and comforters. And she crafts like no one's watching. Only we are. We're tuned in and ready for the airing of "Martha Stewart's Eggcellent Easter
" this Sunday, April 17th. Lucky us, we got a sneak peek at this one hour special, and we have an assignment for you Sunday viewers -- count all the "egg" altered words she beats into her show. Examples: Egg-cellent. Egg-straordinary. Egg-squisite. Get it? The alterations are endless, so keep your bunny ears perked up.
We'd also like to egg-on all you DIYers to try some Martha projects: "Eggcellent Easter" features recipes for coconut cupcakes and bite-size citrus cookies. Creative decor incorporates moss and lots of eggs. From Emu eggs to ostrich eggs, all are decorated, dyed and displayed with techniques you can do at home! We love the look of the marbled eggs.
Not feeling festive but still want to celebrate Martha? Tune in three days later on Wednesday, April 20th: It's Martha's LIVE 1,000 Episode Celebration
. What does a 1,000 episode celebration entail? We're glad you asked. Get ready for the following:
Seth Meyers -- you know, from SNL -- will be making an appearance. (His second one of the season.)
Guest chef Mario Batali will be whipping up something delicious.
Yup, Martha is going to be funny. She will be reviewing the best bloopers and funniest moments of her 1,0000 episodes. We're hoping she'll revisit her pole dancing episode
as well as the time she baked brownies with Snoop Dogg
But that's just us. We'll have to tune-in Wednesday to see what she shares!
