Loving The Camera

Leave Comments   |   Filed under: Cooking With The Pros

logoAs much as I love being on camera and doing the show, not every guest steps on set and has the same comfort. My guest on this show, Bennie Thompson retired NFL player and coach, wasn’t completely sure he was camera ready. There was quite a bit of coaxing  to reassure Bennie all would be just fine. For this particular show, my tailgating tip was decorating your cups at a tailgate/homegate as a fun way to entertain kids and other guest who love to being creative.  We made some fabulous pork enchiladas with some yummy cilantro rice and topped it all off with some margaritas.  When I tapped this particular show, I had actually taped one in the morning also. Let’s just say taping two shows in a day makes for a long day.  But the good news, there was no shortage of food.
