Yesterday was a humbling, overwhelming and surreal day. It was announced that I will be joining the Today Show family as a Today Food Contributor! Every time I'm there, I feel like making a bedazzled poster and joining the energetic plaza crowd... and then someone comes to put a microphone on me and I'm like, oh, you want me to be on TV? Are you sure????? Pinch me.
What I'm even more excited about (if that's possible) is the launch of the new TODAY Food (check out this video if you haven't already). It's a redesigned website with easy-to-follow recipes, tips, meal plans and videos... it's real, healthy, affordable and SIMPLE meals... it's finding your comfort-zone in the kitchen... it's Today.com/food. HA! I'm a commercial! But seriously - no SIRIiously - my goal all along with this blog has been to make cooking FUN. If a recipe freaks you out, change it, if you can't find a weird ingredient, skip it. Cooking does not have to be intimidating!
To answer one big question I got yesterday... NO, this new gig does not mean I will give up blogging. In fact, I'll probably blog more! I seem to be more productive when I'm busier, is that weird? This blog is my happy place, and you virtual people are my virtual family.
So in case you didn't see my segments yesterday, you can view them (and find the recipes) here:
Thanks for all the well wishes, you guys are THE BEST!
