My First Time Eating on Television

Last week, I got to do one of my favorite author-related things. I appeared on a local morning show called Daytime TriCities. Here is a link to my interview:

Daytime TriCities always has someone cooking up something scrumptious. Usually, I get to sample treats after the show, once the cameras have stopped rolling. This week, I was invited to come down during the show to take a bite of a delicious turnover filled with apples, peanut butter and caramel.

Now I have become comfortable talking on television but eating on television is a whole different story. How big of a bite should I take? What if I am asked a question while my mouth is full? Do I look funny when I chew?

Here is footage of Liz Bushong making the delicious turnovers and comforting, creamy cinnamon latte. At the end of the clip, I take a bite of my turnover. The turnover was so good that it was hard not to devour the whole thing in five seconds. Instead, I took my dainty tv bite then gobbled it up once I was off camera.

If you would like more of Liz's recipes. Here is her site:

You can order her fabulous dessert cookboot from this site. If you scroll down, you will find the recipes for the turnovers and the cinnamon latte I got to taste on the show.

I think I need some more practice of eating on tv. It is one tough assignment, but I think I am up to the task.
