my first experience cooking on TV!

by amy on 28 September 2012

yesterday, i added something amazing to my list of life experiences: i did a cooking segment live on tv! the lovely folks at Talk Of The Town, a great local talk show, invited me to come on + discuss/ prepare some easy, healthy snacks. of course, i couldn’t say no! so, yesterday morning, I went to the studio, met a whole bunch of wonderful on-air personalities, producers, + behind-the-scenes crew members, + got ready to get cookin’. here i am right before taping!

without further ado, here i am, making my cooking-on-tv debut! (note: if you’re reading from Google Reader/an email subscription, you’ll have to click through to the full post to see the video).

NewsChannel5.com | Nashville News, Weather

here are the two recipes featured during the segment:
no-bake peanut butter energy bites
no-bake chewy chocolate chip granola bars

i had such a blast doing the segment + hopefully, i’ll be back to cook in the Talk Of The Town kitchen again this fall. =) and thank you SO much to everyone who sent me encouraging messages through facebook + twitter both before the segment + after seeing me on-air – y’all are truly the greatest!

Amy! Congratulations! You looked like a complete natural. Can’t wait to see you do this again!

You are natural! Even better then the news anchor lady. She seemed a little awkward..haha

You did such a great job! I know how nerve wracking these cooking segments can be and you look so comfortable! Great job :)

Ummmmmm, you totally rocked it. Were you the least bit nervous because it didn’t show through…you’re amazingly professional. I’m so proud of you!!!

I was definitely a bit nervous, but more than that i was excited for the fun opportunity. =) thanks for the kind words, Julie!

Awesome segment! You are a natural! And the recipe you chose for the show is just perfect!

63 ErinsFoodFiles October 4, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Dang girl! You looked like a pro!

PS. Nathan said he completely forgot that you were going to be on that day, or else he would have come down to say hello!

64 amy October 4, 2012 at 2:02 pm

thanks so much, girl! and no problem about Nathan – i’m hoping to be back on the show within the next few months, so I’ll give him a heads-up + maybe he can pop by then. =)

65 Meghan October 8, 2012 at 7:46 pm

Congrats girl!! You should be very proud of yourself, you did a fantastic job!! :)

You did such a great job and I am definitely going to have to make these for my pre-workout snack! Hunter would love getting to help me, too!
