I’m going to have my own show.
A show on Food Network
Recipe testers, Rex, Vivien and family friend Judah. All who make cameos in the show.

This has been in the works for about 4 years. From the first call from Food Network till now. Thanks to the mom blog world that helped birth co creations Momversation, Coolmom and made it possible that my friends and family no longer had to truck out to a crappy black box theater with a leaky toilet to watch me perform. In early 2008 they could stay home sit on their own leaky toilet and watch me perform online.
I’ve hosted a lot of shows since 1996, but nothing is as challenging as hosting a food show. Well, live red carpet is no picnic either, but this was a big challenge for me because I can talk to camera. I can be funny. I can cook. But, all at the same time while SMILING, that’s a hat trick. I worked on about 15 recipes for the the show. Some I mastered after a bout 4 or 5 tries. Others I made so much I thought I would never eat them again. I developed a brownie recipe from scratch. Mark said I was nuts to do that. “Start with a known recipe and tweak it and make your changes from there.” But, in the end it turned out. Though I did gain 5 pounds in the prep and shooting of the show. I had to make sure they all tasted good!
So, it starts Sunday January 4th at noon. It’s just 6 episodes and if it does any numbers we can hopefully make more, so I really need any support you can give it. I need the eyeballs. There are good recipes in it, some helpful hints, cute shots of my kids.
Remember, by supporting this new venture, you don’t have to leave your house!
