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). | 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!

13 amy September 28, 2012 at 12:21 pm

i can’t deny that i was a little terrified by the ‘live’ aspect at first, but luckily it was so fun that i forgot all about my nerves. =)

You’re a natural!

20 angela@spinachtiger September 28, 2012 at 3:22 pm

Awesome, Amy. I was invited a few times and have never been able to make it on the show. Maybe if I talk to you, I’ll feel better about it. You look so cute!

21 amy September 28, 2012 at 3:34 pm

I’d love to talk to you about it – it was a great experience!

22 Amy @DYKTMP? September 28, 2012 at 3:42 pm

That was great. You really are so natural. heheh Now this has nothing to do with the food but your ring is GORGEOUS! I love it! hehe I’ve never had an eye for big jewels until I cam across a ring a friend of a friend had just like that. I thought it was so special with a beautiful blue stone with diamond halo. I was hooked! So now when I see those types of rings around I make sure to let the owners know their husbands or husbands to be did an awesome job hehe Also your bites look super tasty. :0)

23 amy September 28, 2012 at 3:47 pm

aww, thank you! i did notice that the ring got a lot of on-air time, which i’m sure my husband appreciated. =) it’s an antique tanzanite + diamond ring – i love it because it’s a little different than the average engagement ring, you know? thanks so much for your kind words, amy!

Wow…I am happy to report I could watch the segment even all the way in SE Asia. It might have taken half an hour (give or take) to load, but it was fantastic seeing your TV appearance. I agree with everyone, you did a great job!

34 amy September 29, 2012 at 6:49 am

I am so happy that you took the time for it to load all the way in Southeast Asia – thank you! That also means that my brother in India will probably be able to watch it – hooray! =)
