Something’s in the Water at Food Network

by in View All Posts, March 6th, 2009


A blizzard may have hit the east coast, but it was all showers here at FN — baby showers. There are five (count them) FIVE women expecting here. To celebrate the imminent increasing of the FN family, pink and blue balloons, cuddly baby blankets and rubber duckies decorated our conference room. Of course, the stork-themed desserts stole this tablecloth’s show. Fun stuff.

We may have not had Ina’s full course meal or or Giada’s spring time shower fare but we did have an assortment of sugary treats, like home made cupcakes, courtesy of one multi talented production coordinator. Let me tell you these mommies-to-be may not perform in front of the camera, but they all have the culinary skills to do so. Take our Director of Product Management, Tracy Rubine, for example. Her cooking days are waning and energy is fading, but she did whip up this pork chop recipe the other night.
Tracy advises, “be careful not to overcook the pork” Got ya, Ms. Rubine. Another mama, Narisa Wild, our Director Website Product and Industry Development has been indulging lately in this yogurt and granola concoction from Tyler. Apparently, she has been leaning toward lighter and sweeter fare in the evening (digestion has been proving difficult due to her full tummy). Narisa also mentioned that you can do variations on this little delight – alternate fruits, dried fruits and even nuts to mix it up a bit, and says that “the yogurt can also be substituted for frozen yogurt or ice cream.” Yummy!

Well, the way I ate today, it looks as if I might be expecting. Perhaps, that will warrant a party?

Truly,
Secretary Confidential

    SC, wow! If that’s what’s in the water at Food Network, I’m glad I drank champagne !! *giggling*

    Congratulations to all the expectant moms and their husbands, partners and families! And the tips on pg-appropriate food is a help. I have a pregnant friend who’s having difficulty keeping pretty much anything down, and saltine crackers are getting pretty old.

    Always fun to see “whats cookin” behind the scenes at FN. It makes it more familial and familiar to not only see whats happenin in the fryin pan but in the oven too!!!

    Looks like drinking the water at FN induces varying degrees of abdominal swelling. Should be a warning on the water cooler. All kidding aside those” moms to be” look radiant. They are so lucky to be in a place where if a craving strikes there is a good chance something great is cooking only a few steps away
