With the dog days of summer comes trips to the beach, picnics, grilling out with friends and family, baby showers, weddings, you name it! Summertime is entertaining time and I couldn’t be more excited to announce “Nibble & Nosh and Everything Posh!” a food and style event I’m hosting with my longtime friend Chad Steed, in his sweet home of Alabama.
Tailored for entertaining, the event boasts Southern recipes and innovative style ideas for hosting the perfect summer soirée . I’ll share dishes you can prepare with minimal effort that are big on flavor and presentation! Guests will sample bites of my bacon, lettuce and fried green tomato sliders with spicy pimento cheese among other refreshing grilled desserts, appetizers and warm-weather-friendly beverages. In addition to my live cooking demonstrations, Chad of “The Stylish Steed” lifestyle blog, focused on living well for less, will bring his creative taste to the table teaching guests how to personalize parties with custom cloth table linens, unique lighting elements, painting techniques and easy floral arranging.
You may remember Chad from our brief appearance on The Dr. Oz Show. We met on the mission field in the summer of 2002 during college and have been the best of pals ever since. We always have a good time together and this event will be no exception. I’d like to personally invite you to join us as we sing, laugh and demonstrate how to entertain with ease on Thursday, May 15 at 6 p.m. at the Gadsden State Cherokee Arena. Admission is $5 in advance or $8 at the door. Tickets may be purchased at the Gadsden State Cherokee Campus.
The thrill of being on national TV, if only for a moment, never gets old! It was so exciting to be a part of Dr. Oz’s Healthy Recipe Challenge today on The Dr. Oz Show. Thanks to everyone who tuned in!
Now, to have a little fun. I’d like to show you the actual clip that aired on the show, and then a short blooper reel of what really happened behind the scenes. To quote Ninny Threadgoode from the famous Southern movie Fried Green Tomatoes, “I’ve found what the secret to life is: friends.” One of my dearest friends, Chad, helped film the footage The Dr. Oz Show requested. We spent hours upon hours climbing in chairs to get the perfect camera angle, staging the kitchen, laughing and trying to get just the right take before the ice cream melted. I am so happy he made the cut, and what fun we had! Check out his blog, The Stylish Steed, for all things fashionable and tips on living well for less. Love you Boo, and in the words of The Golden Girls, “Thank you for being a friend!”
Here’s the actual segment. I was first up!
…And here’s what really happened. Hope you get a laugh or two!
