4 medium boneless, skinless chicken breasts
• 2 tbsp. curry powder
• ¼ cup apricot jam
• ¼ cup sour cream
• ¼ cup mayonnaise
• ¼ cup finely chopped celery
• ¼ cup finely chopped red onion (about ½ medium onion)
• Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Rub the chicken breasts with 1 tbsp. of the curry powder, place them on a lightly greased baking sheet and roast until a meat thermometer registers 125 to 160 degrees in the thickest part, or until the juices run clear. Let the chicken cool.
3. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, combine the remaining 1 tbsp. curry powder with the apricot jam, sour cream and mayonnaise.
4. When the chicken is cool, cut into ½ inch cubes. Add the chicken, celery, and onion to the bowl and stir well. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Any unused curried chicken recipe can be covered and refrigerated for up to 5 days.)

By the time I met him, he had decided he could be a star,’ she said. ‘He wanted to be treated like a star and he acted like a star. He would walk around my house in a little G-string strap and nothing else. I had a mirrored wall and he would stand in front of it, flexing his biceps and admiring himself.
‘I was a bit embarrassed but he liked to show off his body. He had a great pride in it.’
Are you one of the actors?’’ Tom said to us, “Please tell her not to ask me any questions. I’m still in character.” ’
Another time, a row broke out when Mrs Berlin gave him a surprise birthday present – an album in which she had pasted photos of him from fan magazines. Mrs Berlin said: ‘He screamed, “I didn’t want to be in the teen mags.” He threw the album hard at me and it hit me on the cheek

Avalon Organics, the Vitamin C Renewal – Refreshing Cleansing Gel
DermaQuest, which is 15% glycolic acid. And I put it on dry so that it’s a little stronger on my fingertips. Dry fingertips and dry face, massage it in, and then rinse it really well.
I can’t live without the La Mer Moisturizing Gel Cream. I don’t like anything really heavy. I do have the Creme de la Mer for when my skin is really dry. But the gel is lighter, spreads easier, and goes on quicker.
I keep a little jar of Creme de la Mer in my purse, and I dab a little bit under my eyes throughout the day for a little pick me up.
I should start using that as an eye cream. The only eye cream I have in my cabinet right now is Pevonia Evolutive Eye Gel. I also love, love, love a product line called CellCeuticals. It’s made by a surgeon, Dr. Garth Fisher. His stuff is so good. He has a great serum, it’s called Interactive Moisture Serum. It’s so great. And he has something called a Barrier Repair. It’s unlike anything else. And he makes my absolute favorite exfoliant, as far as a physical exfoliant that has beads in it, it’s the best skin resurfacer that I’ve ever used. It’s called NeoCell Micro-Resurfacing Skin Treatment. It’s so good.
Tarte. And I don’t want to just say “eyeliner”, because I do so much with it. It’s called Emphaseyes
La Mer makes a lip balmI order this cream by True Blue Spa. I order like three at a time online. It’s a really thick cream called Lay It On Thick. It’s the thickest moisturizer and it makes your legs so reflective. Not reflective like an oil, but just like the healthiest skin. It makes your skin look beautiful. It would make a great hand cream, because it’s just such a thick cream. I also like Bio-Oil. I think you can just get it from the drug store. It’s really good. I use it on my neck and chest sometimes at nigh
“Here is the recipe (makes 4 main-course servings):
3-4 small beets, trimmed
1 pound fresh ricotta cheese
1 large egg
3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups flour, divided
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
2 tbsp olive oil
fresh rosemary sprigs, or bunch of basil, chopped
Additional Parmesan cheese, shaved
Additional basil leaves, to garnish
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wrap beets in foil and roast until tender, about 1 hour. Cool 15 minutes. Slip skin off beets; discard skins. Coarsely grate beets. Place grated beets in large bowl. Stir in ricotta, egg, 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Mix in 1 cup flour. (Gnocchi dough can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
Lightly dust baking sheet with flour. Place remaining flour in small bowl. Using a tablespoon as aid, scoop dough into small rounds; transfer to bowl with flour, roll to coat. To shape the gnocchi: hold a salad fork in one hand so the tip rests on the work surface at a 45-degree angle. Place a piece of the dough at the top of the tines with your free thumb in the center. In one gentle motion, quickly press and roll the dough along the tines to make groves in one side of the dumpling. The other side will have a small dent from your thumb, perfectly suited for holding a sauce. Transfer gnocchi to prepared baking sheet. (Can be prepared 6 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
Melt butter with rosemary or basil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Cook until butter begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Add olive oil, set aside. Working in batches, cook gnocchi in large pot of simmering salted water, 3 1/2 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer gnocchi to skillet with butter, olive oil and rosemary/basil. Heat over medium heat, stirring gently to coat. Transfer to plate; sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese, garnish with basil leaves and serve.

Ms Anderson is known for her six days a week, an hour a day, ‘for the rest of your life,’ intense fitness regimes, and has specialised in the removal of post-baby weight since she gained and lost 25kgs during her first pregnancy.
Supermodel Karolina Kurkova credited Ms Anderson for helping her get back in shape after her pregnancy in 2010.
She told W magazine: ‘She’s a working mom like me and she understands that, and understands a woman’s body.’
Having remodelled half of Hollywood (Ms Anderson has a long list of other celebrity clients - including men - whose names she won’t reveal), the trainer also famously told the Guardian no woman should have saggy arms, or poor skin tone.
She said: ‘It’s good for your body to train all the time, it keeps you young. Who wants to get old? That is part of my inspiration and it is going to end up helping so many other people,’ she added.
