Yes it’s true…
Back in January, I was contacted by someone from the Food Network. They wanted to use one of my Instagram photos of the Everything Bagel Salad on an upcoming “Recipe Mashup” episode of the show called The Kitchen.
Y’all, let me tell you.
I. WAS. ECSTATIC!!!
Food Network was one of the very first channels I ever watched after moving to the US. And, in a way, it was my idea of the American dream. I mean, getting paid to cook on TV?! That is pretty darn amazing! So this opportunity was a big deal for me!
The lovely woman from the Food Network did forewarn me that there was a possibility that my photo may get cut from the program if there was timing issues.
“Okay”, I thought. “I can handle that.”
I just had to wait for the program to air on February 15.
An entire MONTH away.…
