Two Peas and Their Pod: Live on Studio 5

Monday, March 30, 2009

Live on Studio 5



I was recently contacted by Studio 5, a day time lifestyle show on KSL- NBC's affiliate in Salt Lake City. They stumbled upon my blog and fell in love with my Banana Cinnamon Chip Cake and asked me to make it at the studio, LIVE. 

I have done a lot of TV interviews for my "real" job, the topic is always something health related. The segments are short and no big deal, but to cook LIVE on TV, that is a different story. Of course I agreed to do it, but I was a little nervous.

Well today was the big day! I got up early to work out and make the "show" cake. I also measured out all of the ingredients for the live segment. Josh was sweet and came with me to the studio. I got there plenty early so I could set up and breathe:) My segment was in the middle of the show. It was fun watching the other segments behind the scenes:)

The butterflies hit me when I saw the "teaser" of my segment. It was too late run though, I was already there and ready to go. Darin, one of the hosts, was in the kitchen with me. He made me feel very relaxed and was easy to talk to. I demonstrated how to make the cake and talked about our blog for a bit. It was actually a lot of fun. Everyone loved the cake too. I am glad it was a success. 

If you want to watch the video clip, click here. I really hate watching myself, but I know my friends and family will appreciate the link, so ENJOY! 

If you haven't tried my banana cinnamon chip cake, I suggest you do. It is delicious and SO easy!

Hey girl! Hope the belly is feeling better. Are you talking about the whole wheat bread? I use this recipe: http://www.tammysrecipes.com/homemade_wheat_bread but instead of using 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 2 of honey, I use 1 of brown sugar and 3 of honey.

I used to work at a television station and often ran camera when we had cooking guests. So, while I've never done it, I have a pretty good idea of how hard it can be to try to cook & talk on television! What a great opportunity!
