My Two Sweet Desserts From Ultimate Recipe Showdown!

Even with with the outcome of the show not in my favor Sunday night, I will say that being on the show was the experience of a lifetime. Being in NYC and in the Food Network Studios is such a prize in itself and I’ll never forget it. Guy Fierri is exactly how he is on tv, so cool and down to earth.

All in all, both of my recipes turned out great while cooking on the show. My doughnuts are so much fun. I put a lot of TLC into creating that recipe and will treasure it for years to come. Do give them a try sometime. The peaches are a beautiful dessert as well, simple and delicious with only a few ingredients. It was great to hear comments from the judges, they only showed a few seconds of it on the show, but they spent a good 10 plus minutes talking with each of us. I was happy with what they said about both of my recipes.

Thanks for all of your thoughtful emails, comments and facebook notes.You all are wonderful.Are you ready to give the show a try this year?We’ve got just a couple weeks left to enterI highly recommend the experience to every one, you’ll have an amazing time! Check out for all the details.

Hope you’ll all enjoy some pics and links for my recipes from the show.

    De-lurking to let you know that I made the drop doughnuts yesterday and they were sooo good. Even a day later the leftovers are wonderful.
    (And I only had 2 bananas and no cinnamon chips, and they were still fabulous!)

    I can not believe I have stumbled upon this blog! My kids are down for naps and I’m doing a little “blog stalking”, and somehow I found your site. I love Food Network, but have never seen URS before until the other night….when you were on! I thought your recipe for the banana bread donuts looked just incredible. Thank you so much for sharing that recipe! I’m still laughing at what a small “blog world” it is… Great job!

    K funny story. My husband and I moved last week and I’ve been behind on my blogging. We were flipping through the TV the other night and came across Food Network (one of my faves!). I was like, “sweetie…I think that lady is on one of the blogs I follow”…I watched for a few minutes and wasn’t 100% sure and then I log on today and it was you! So cool! What an awesome opportunity! I will not be the last to know next time you’re on TV! Thanks for having your blog!
