Cookin’ on CBS Early Show Friday


Just a short, sweet note — I’m currently in NYC and will be cooking on the CBS Early Show Friday December 4th during the end of the 8am hour. If you’re at home sick or playin’ hooky that day, tune in! I’m making Lamb Chops with Asian Pesto and Miso Mashed Potatoes from The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook.

For this trip, I’ve brought Nathan with me — it’s his very first trip to NYC, and so far….

He’s flown a jet.


The very nice pilot told him to “now remember that ‘JET BLUE ROCKS!’ okay?”

They shook hands, we walked off the plane and Nathan was real quiet. All of the sudden Nathan turned to me looking really worried, puzzled…and asked, “Mommy, why did the pilot tell me to watch out for blue rocks?”

And he’s also jumped up and down and slid across a $250,000 piano at FAO Schwartz.


You think I’m kidding about the price?


And I also brought along my goofball friend and favorite travel companion, Rachelle of @travelblggr. She likes groping superheroes.


See you! I hope you get a chance to tune into the 8am hour (or whatever time it runs in your time zone)  of CBS Early Show!

    Your boys are adorable…looking forward to watching you tomorrow morning. I don’t generally like lamb but maybe you can convince me otherwise!

    Congrats -I’ll start tweeting it up. I makes me feel in the know. :)

  6. Rebecca Regnier — 12/3/09 @ 9:23 am

    Um – yeah “IT” makes me feel in the know. Wow.

    Good luck! I can’t wait to see. I work from home so can watch.

  8. I bet Nathan is having so much fun! I remember getting the FAO Schwartz catalog as a kid. I would look at it about a hundred times picking out items I just had to have. Nevermind that my Mom and Dad would never be able to afford half that stuff. My first trip to NYC, my Dad took me to the store and I thought I was in kiddie heaven!

    I’d love to watch your Friday gig, but alas, I’ll be at work. Is it available to stream online, do you know?

  10. I am taping this for my class to watch! Good luck!

  11. Amanda — 12/3/09 @ 1:18 pm

    Man those boys are cute! I hope to be watching tomorrow, break a leg! :)

  12. Dawn — 12/3/09 @ 2:09 pm

    Oh no! I’ll have to miss it. We are heading to the coast tomorrow for a camping trip with friends. But I’ll catch it when I return – maybe on your blog or CBS on line. Have fun!

  13. Nathan looks so happy! I wish I had a mom that let me *ditch* school to go play in New York! ;)
    Yay for the three of you! Look like it’s gonna be a blasting fun time!

  14. Ellen — 12/3/09 @ 3:14 pm

  34. Woo — 12/6/09 @ 3:54 pm

    Darn it! I missed the show! To console myself, I will make your lamb chops for dinner tonight and decorate our tree (yes, we are a leetle behind this year).

    As for the quarter million dollar piano–does it come with its own house? lol.

  35. Vivian — 12/8/09 @ 12:11 pm

    I missed it :( I will pull it up on cbs.com later. Cliff watched it though and said you did an excellent job. Hope you had a great time in NYC!

  36. susan g — 12/9/09 @ 1:50 am

    Can you post a link if the video is on cbs.com? I love the miso mashed, love the pesto, want to see!
