I am always on a hunt for a bite to eat! Whether it’s leftovers from Sunny’s set or the latest recipe from the test kitchen ….I’ll get my grubby, little hands on it. Putting my SC Cam to use, follow my fork as I search for FOOD (don’t mind the stomach grumbling). This week, as you’ll see, I found Executive Chef of the Food Network Kitchens, Rob Bleifer, who accused me of stealing food from Viva Daisy’s set.
Twice a month I’ll be posting videos sharing the eats I find. Let me know where you’d like to see me stick my utensils. Until next time, here’s to eating well!
The head honcho is traveling, so my latest spy mission wasn’t that covert. Without worrying about colleagues sneaking up behind me (forcing me to scramble for a work-related Internet window), I emailed my buddy and FN executive chef here at FN, Rob Bleifer for an interview. My FN inner fanatic soared midway through his email: “How about next week? Ellie Krieger is taping some web shows in the FN Kitchens right now.” Love. Ellie.
A brilliant idea came in the form of an interoffice envelope. I whipped up a label reading “Important for Rob Bliefer” and scurried to the kitchens. After a friendly hello from big-smiles guard Clarence, I slithered through the swinging door, towards Rob’s homey office. Cameras were rolling, lights were blazing and Ellie had spatula in hand.
She’s taping 12 shorts, called Healthy Meal Makeovers with Ellie Krieger. Don’t let the “healthy” term deter you. Ellie will be whipping up dishes like Better Beef Lasagna, Sesame Shrimp Fried Rice and an amazing veggie quiche. I hungrily watched the china-doll-esque chef create a healthy version of chicken pot pie….yummy. How the heck do you make chicken pot pie non-artery clogging? Ah…stay tuned. Think stir fry with down-home comfort. If only I could have snuck a taste…
Until next time…
Happy Resolution Keeping! ~ Secretary Confidential
