In a four part segment, On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman visited the set of NBC’s Days of our Lives to learn and discover how the stars of DAYS stay fit, how they look so beautiful on camera, what they eat, or what hidden talents they may have!

In this first segment at the start of our day, Melissa Reeves  (Jennifer) showed Michael how to cook her infamous Chicken Pot Pie which is featured in Days of our Lives Better Living on sale now and is the perfect coffee table gift for any Salem fan for the holidays!

As you will see, Michael has cooking-phobia, and Melissa tries to guide Michael through how to make her dish which is a favorite with her husband former GH star, Scott Reeves! In addition, Melissa shares her thoughts on the ongoing romantic turmoil between Daniel (Shawn Christian) and Jennifer, and what is has been like for her having the great casting addition of Casey Moss (JJ) playing her on-screen son!

Now, get ready to watch as Melissa and Michael attempt to cook up a storm at the Brady Pub!  Will you try this recipe at home?

    Hi do you think u can put closed captions on your site so that other deaf and hearing impaired people like me can enjoy watching? As there’s a lot of deaf and hard of hearing days fans out there and I am one of them. Can I get the recipe on the chicken pot pie? Thanks and have a great day!!!


  4. Mark says:

    I love Missy !!!


  5. Matthew says:

    ….and this is how you prepare your own chick-fil-h8-gay sandwich basted with just the right amount of bigotry, in your own kitchen! Yay!


  6. Annie says:

    Thank you, Michael! Missy is cute and seems so sweet! One thing – please don’t tell me Dannifer still exists 4 months from now?! Ugh….worst couple/pairing in the history of EVER! Jennifer Rose Horton was one of my absolute favorite characters on Days, but pairing her with Daniel, aka Dr. Perv, has done nothing but drag her (and Dan) down and altogether destroy her personality from all angles….and I’m not gonna even rant about how terrible it was that the redux Dannifer pimping/pairing came full force like 5 minutes after the horrific death of the love of Jen’s life. Speaking of Jack, I’m still holding out for MA’s return sometime early next year…..then let Jen’s redemption begin!

    there’s one thing about Jenn; that you can’t take away: she’s a mother

    and it’s gelling and a joy to watch grans’ jewel mother Abbi and JJ.

    I’m gushing over how beautiful and wonderful her sharing her start with Casey Moss…. whom she screen tested with and click immediately

    Casey is in fact a serious good actor… he treats and revels in his show. thank you.

    Jenn…. it’s not working with Daniel. I don’t know… will it be Liam?


    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Liam shoudve been Frankie Brady instead…Jens old boyfriend returns…will they rekindle their old romance? Or will J.J. who starts to like Daniel try to reunite him with his mother, Jen?


  8. JJ says:

    I hope she can cook better than she acts!!! I would love it if DOOL would recast Jennifer! I’ve always loved the character and even loved Missy playing her when she was younger. But now I feel she is one dimensional and unwatchable. I find it hard to believe that any man would be with Jennifer or anyone would be a friend of hers! RECAST!


    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    She needs Jack…


    bella figura replied

    agreed…Jack Deveraux is the one true love for Jennifer!! here’s hoping MA will return. John’s back now it’s Jack’s turn.

    samantha replied

    forget about jack. matt ashford has been fired too many times from days of our lives. i love matt, but they always fire him do to budget cuts. melissa reeves has aged pretty bad lately. look at her neck. lol.

    Patrick replied


    I know right…

    if she dares diss Jeanne Theresa Donovan and her kids.. Abbi and JJ…

    well she can just disappear and fade in to the sunset….

    I’m so over the mt. sinai, bible thumping… morale servitude she and daniel dish out… i puke and heave with dullsville…. yikes!

    wow… DAYs… cut your losses… backburner these two…
    i cannot believe all the air time… these two… get… ???

    SIDEBAR: STAT! DAYS is on to some thing ‘BIG’

    I was floored yesterday….. TA-DA!

    at last…. story for T! Ta-Da! through the roof happy dance.

    T and Abbigail….. TA-DA!

    now… here’s another fine actor: cute as a button… his eyes sparkle and those dimples…

    “when he lept over the bar… and proclaimed…. “we’re both single!”

    LOL… what a TREAT. “AND” abigail’ smile was genuine and all our hearts lept


    advertising for DAYS – I didn’t think it was possible… “finally” – some thing for Abbi
