The Food Network Upcoming Appearance

I've only ever been on the Food Network once before and it was with David Rosengarten (you can see it on my YouTube postings). When I was asked to be a judge of a baking contest last week I almost turned it down because it was all so top secret I wasn't sure just what I was getting myself into! Also, it was a vacation day for me and my husband and doing the show meant having to drive to a studio in Brooklyn instead of an early departure to our country weekend home.I'm sure glad I went with my instincts of "this somehow sounds promising" as it turned out to be the Bobby Flay "Throw Down" show. I've known Bobby for many years now and have always valued his food and his friendship. I've been given permission to reveal this much about the show but the rest will be in about a month when the show airs. I'll be sure to do a posting announcing the details. Meantime, this much I can say: I ate one of the desserts I judged for lunch--all of it!
