Well, I'm back from NY after being on the Today Show (See prior post). My husband came along and we had an amazing two fun whirlwind days in NY city.
Being on the Today Show was so exciting for me because first of all, it's my morning show and second, I got to be on TV!!! It was fun to meet Al Rocker, Natalie Morales and Joy Bauer. I also have to mention the producer, Kate, who was so nice and was with us every step of the way. She made us feel welcome and at ease.
I also got to meet two nice ladies whose chili recipes were up against mine, and Christine Riccitelli. Abigail's recipe was a vegetarian chili (Lean and Mean Chili) and Christine's recipe was a Thai inspired chili (Thai Turkey Chili). I didn't get a chance to try their chili but click on their recipes for a link.
With all the excitement leading up to being on the show, flying to NY, getting to the set early to get our hair and makeup done, getting to hang out in the Green Room as Carson Daly, Christy Brinkley, Kathy Lee walked by and THEN it's time for us go be on and in a flash it's over! Just like that our 5 minutes of fame was over but it sure was fun! Did I win.....NO but we were all winners for just being there!
