Hey all! Well, today I headed into the city to tape some web-isodes for Food Network. Did you watch the Ultimate Recipe Showdown this year? Well, it's back soon and just like I did earlier in the year for Next Food Network Star, I'm doing all of the viewing parties. These are 5 minute shows that will air online right after the show airs on television. It's me and guests and we watch and then just chat about the show and what we thought about the recipes.
So, for the first URS Viewing Party my guests were Food Network Kitchen Manager, Katherine Alford, a judge on the show and Robyn, a viewer from right here in New York. I actually was in the kitchens when they were filming this, so to be a part of the viewing party brings it all full circle. When the shows begin to air, I'll give you links and a heads up to all the goings on, but this post isn't about that ....
When I met Robyn today, the first thing she told me was my "last blog post was on December 10th!!", she said it like she meant it! ... in a bad way :-). She's right ... I have been gone a bit during this month. I told her why and she gave me a pass, but I still feel wack. I blog during certain times of the day usually and with a recent occurrence, that time of the day got totally eaten up with a really important task I had to handle. I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel though and really did need the time to handle it.
Anywho, I know that I have time this week to throw some stuff up, so Robyn ... thanks for the gentle prodding :-) ... you are right, it's been a minute! Here's me Robyn and Katherine about to watch the first episode of the new Ultimate Recipe Showdown.
We really had such a good time talking, you'd think all of us gossiped regularly. I was really trying to figure out how we would comment on a show about recipes without even eating them, but we did. It's amazing what you can tell by a description, plus Katherine tasted everything so her being a part of the show was integral. Also, thanks to my greed while in the kitchens when they were taping, I actually tasted some of the dishes too ... being a glutton pays off, eh? Ok, well just wanted to stop in and say posts are on the way!
Hope everyone is staying warm and getting some time off for the holidays!
P.S. OMG, it just hit me ... what if I spelled Robin wrong??? If I did ... forgive me girl :-) ...
