My Friday morning was very exciting! I was asked to represent Extended Stay America and show off some delicious Holiday dishes from their Away From Home Cookbook on the local Austin morning news.
I made Sunny's Nutty and Fruit Pilaf and Chocolate Candy Bar Pie the night before and prepped all of the ingredients for the Panzanella Salad so I could demo it once I got there.
I made a mess, as you can tell, but it was fun and my kitchen smelled amazing! The recipes were all created for being made in your hotel room, so the ingredient lists are short, and the instructions are simple!
Once I got to the station I realized that we were actually taping the segment and it would be played the next day. For some reason that really helped me relax knowing that it wasn't live. I felt really comfortable and was the least nervous I've ever been on camera. Maybe I'm finally getting the hang of this!
If you'd like to see the segment, HERE it is!
