Kansas City Live!
Oh my goodness, friends. I JUST DID MY FIRST LIVE COOKING SEGMENT!!!
I think it may take another day for the adrenaline and nerves to calm down. But the video on Kansas City Live‘s site is already up, so thought I would share it with you here (and point you to the recipe for the yummy Avocado Pesto Pasta that we made).
The whole morning was definitely a learning experience, especially when it came to nerves! I literally used to stand up in front of a few thousand people each weekend to sing in my last job, and very rarely got nervous. But today I was literally shaking in my boots (ok, cute sandals) as I was getting ready amongst the bustling set, guests, lights, teleprompters and more. Thankfully the co-host, Michael, who did the segment was a total foodie and was stoked about the avocado pesto (and the “scrimps”), and he helped this rookie through the experience. I still forgot most everything that I had planned to say, and also managed to forget to remove the skin from one avocado before tossing it in the food processor (eek!!), and think I poured about twice as much oil into the avocado pesto as the recipe says.
But still, it was so much fun!!!
Huge thanks to Kansas City Live for the opportunity to come on, and to all of my wonderful friends for their cheers and encouragement. Now, go grab some avocados and make this Avocado Pesto Pasta with me! :)
