The 5 Friends Every Chick Needs

3. Your Own Personal Martha Stewart
She knows everything from how to get candle wax off your cat's ear to what color shoes to wear with a celadon silk suit. Need a recipe for champagne punch? She'll fax over five of them and would make the champagne if she needed to. Roof leaking? She's there with some shingles and tar that she happened to have in the workshop. She has every tool, every recipe and every magazine article cross-referenced and indexed, and she's as resourceful as the FBI, the CIA and Interpol combined. She is irreplaceable.

Want to be just like her? Learn to be a diva in your own Home & Garden, and the kitchen, too.
