My New TV Reel

This reel of my TV work is SO overdue. I've been meaning to make a new one for about a year and a half, but kept putting it off...and off...and off. (I have many many friendly follow-up emails from my agent's assistant to prove it!)

Editing video is not my favorite thing (nor is it something I'm particularly good at), but hiring someone else to do it also stressed me out since I would still have to go through all my segments and pick out the clips I wanted, then pay someone to edit them together. I figured that once I'd gone through all the work of finding the right clips and song (basically 80% of the job), I might as well just keep going and finish the job myself.

So I did!

Anyway, here it is!



My hosting and lifestyle expert reel featuring some of my favorite clips for the dozens and dozens of TV segments and other on-camera things I've done over the past couple years. My ultimate goal is a paid TV gig as a co-host or contributor or some other kind of fabulous TV project where I get to do this sort of thing every day!

I love being on camera and sharing ideas and stories that both entertain and inspire. I love interacting with people, laughing, dancing, and riding with the unexpected waves of TV production (it's the mistakes and surprises that are always my favorite!) and look forward to the moment when I get to do it all the time.

Thanks so much for your support over the years. I had no idea when I hit publish on that first post all those years ago, that it would lead to me laughing it up on national TV with legends like Al Roker and Harry Connick Jr., but man oh man am I ever thankful that it has!

Can't wait to see what happens next.

Cinnamon Blueberry Pecan Coffee Cake

I bake a lot of cakes, but this Cinnamon Blueberry Pecan Coffee Cake is one of the best things I've ever made. It's ridiculously simple, but there's something about the combination of the fresh summery blueberries, nutty pecans, and warm cinnamon that makes it particularly satisfying during these in-between weeks. It's not quite Fall yet, but you can feel summer drifting away. There are still some crazy hot days ahead, but the attitude has changed.

Spicy Green Juice (Green Bloody Mary Mix)

My number one issue with most green juice recipes is that they are always too sweet. Most classic green juice recipes call for the addition of apples or pears, which makes the drink much sweeter than anything I'd ever want to drink for breakfast (or really at any time of day!).

Veggie Stove-top Frittata with Sweet Corn, Tomatoes & Zucchini

There are only a few weeks left of summer, but as the days start to cool and the tans start to fade, we can at least enjoy the lush late-summer produce that's filling the market stalls.

Sweet corn, juicy tomatoes, those oversized zucchini and squash--all ripe, sweet, and bursting with flavor.

This veggie frittata brings all of them together (along with a bit of salty cheese, of course!) for a simple stove-top meal that works at any time of day. I shared this recipe on the TODAY Show this week (along with this spicy green juice that doubles as a fab Bloody Mary alternative!).

Grilled Apricots with Almond Mascarpone

Late-summer is one of the lushest times of the year. Juicy, ripe stone fruit like apricots are at their peak, and while perfect fresh and eaten right out of hand, they're also really wonderful served grilled.

Grilling apricots takes just a few minutes, but makes that already delicious fruit even sweeter and better by caramelizing the natural sugars and adding just a hint of smokiness to every bite.

Curvy Style: A Flattering Flowy Dress for Hot Summer Days

I love a bright dress.

For some reason, there's an idea that New Yorkers are all about black, but that's never been true for me. My closet is a rainbow of bright, bold shades. It's ideal since I work on camera (bright colors are always best on TV), but it's also how I want to dress when I'm not working.

I spotted this flowy mustard yellow off-the-shoulder dress on the sale rack at Anthropologie a few weeks ago, but ended up not buying it.
