The Aftermath

Are we going to kiss?! (Spoiler: no.)

It feels so strange for my episode of Food Fighters to be over. It’s been this weird strange secret that I’ve had in my brain for over a year. At times I was sure nothing would happen of it and the show was cancelled. At other times, I would stay up at night worried about how I would look.

Turns out that was all silly worrying (and out of my control anyway).

I’m really looking forward to this weekend though. It’ll be the first one in a long time that I don’t have the unknown status of the show looming in my mind. So, in other words, I can relax a bit.

The Links

Vietnamese Pork Chops – These look crazy good. Charred nicely and served with watermelon. Yea… you read that right. (@ The Bitten Word)

Tart Cherry Pies – I saw cherries in the store this week for $2/lb. That’s out of control. Pie is needed! (@ Love and Olive oil)

Food that Makes you Happy, Healthy, Hot – I shortened the title, but essentially this is a great walkthrough of eating a healthy, but not restrictive week of food. It’s actually almost identical to the kinds of things I eat on a weekly basis (with a fair amount of cheating) (@ Amateur Gourmet)

I’m a Creator – A month or two ago, I got asked to be in a video with an online company I work with frequently to find sponsors for Macheesmo. They came over and shot a fun video of me cooking and talking about my weird blog journey. This is the resulting video! (@ Youtube)

Have a great weekend everyone! If you need me, I’ll be replying to lovely messages that make me blush and ignoring the occasional nasty bit.

  1. You did one fine job on that show and no doubt everyone out here in blog-land was as proud of you as was I.

  2. Just caught up with your episode online last night..way to go! I think all of the home chefs that can go on and compete in that kind of limited-time, high stress environment are amazing!

  3. Wow! I was on the edge of my seat the entire show rooting for you. I just watched the show last night(Friday) and couldn’t believe how calm you were until I saw the close-up shots. With your wife cheering you on you couldn’t lose. Perhaps Food Network is looking for a new star and you could be it! Congratulations on your significant win!

  4. Finally got a chance to watch yesterday. Well done! Having worked with some real arrogant chefs before, it was a pleasure to see you take them down a notch! It was a great show, congratulations! Can’t wait to see pics of your new house.. :)

    1. Thanks Karen! TO be honest, all the chefs were pretty nice actually. I think they were kind of hamming it up a bit for the cameras. ;)

  5. Well, I’m backing in to this…found your blog based on watching the show. You did a great job, and you can cook for me any time! LOL

    Congratulations!

  6. I enjoyed your episode. I mean episode as in single part of a series, not episode as in having a fit, ha ha. I can’t imagine doing a cooking show like that, I hate time crunches but at least you got to pick your recipes. I could never do one of those, “Cook a dish in 40 minutes with mutton heart, squid, dragon fruit, and this bag of rusty roofing nails that we found in the dumpster” type shows.
