They Actually Let Me In The Building

filed under: Miscellaneous on December 28, 2009

I'm so excited to share with you the 'behind the scenes' of my interview and cooking segment on Fox 9.  I have never been in a television studio and it was just as exciting as you would expect!

Well.  If you are a stay at home mom who doesnt get out much and is easily impressed.


When I arrived I walked into the studio where Karen Scullin was live reporting the news.  She was great!


I'm sorry these are so blurry… the sweet gal offered to take a
picture and I forgot to tell her how to use my camera… so you can see
that wall behind Karen is crystal clear! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I sat down almost immediately and had my interview… I had no idea what it was about until about 27 seconds before it began.

This was my new best friend Dana's spot…she got me my microphone and told me to relax (I think she could sense my nervousness) and that it would all be just fine!

After the interview we went over to the 'kitchen' and I got all set up!



Very nice and helpful Ricky took this picture before we started.  (There is the Rainbow cake I forgot to get a picture of!)  The kids and DH were in the studio the whole time and were little angels!!  Having them there meant so much to me!


Here is Karen and I during the actual taping… Ricky had told me to pretend I was standing in my kitchen talking to my best friend about cooking.  So, thats what I did! 


Sorry this is so blurry and that I have alien eyes, but I was so happy when it was all over I was even willing to post for the camera!

So if you feel so inclined, go ahead and check out the segment here…and if you want to see all of the things I baked stop by i am baker.

And thanks for all the encouragement and support!  You guys are AMAZING!!

    Wow! This was such an awesome post! What a neat experience!!! Congratulations. I’m sure there will be more of this to come. You looked beautiful.. I love the scarf… I never could have worn such a thing… I would have been sweating bullets already from nervousness and then the scarf would have made it worse. You look completely at ease in the pictures. Do we get to see any video?

    Hi Amanda, I just read your little note on my blog ( Ouch-so sorry to not give you credit. My brain is very very altered since I’ve been raising three wee ones. YOUR cake was to die for and somewhere on my blog mid October there is a picture of it. My mom used to bake wedding cakes and attempted it. She was horrified that it started leaning and went out and bought one. I said, nonsense, it’s the most beautiful cake ever. And it did taste scrumptious. We never ate the store bought cake. So thanks for sharing Amanda! YOUR cake was awesome and I will give credit where it’s due. Thanks for the blog picture love. I am completely obsessed with photography lately. Now, I want to take some time and read through your blog. Nighty night! Annmarie

  • Janmary N Ireland says:

    Congrats to you – you look great. I think having my kids in the studio would have made me MORE nervous – waiting for them to interrupt or for my sonto unplug the cameras of lights!!!
    So proud of you – hugs!

  • Julie in WA says:

    Hi Amanda! I am so happy I could watch you alive on television. It is one thing to follow a one-dimension blog and quite another to see the blogger alive, moving, breathing, speaking! You did a marvelous job, no nerves…a natural!
    You know, I started to read your blog after reading a comment you made on PW. Now, I don’t usually read comments on blogs, but your comment caught me eye, and I have been hooked on you ever since. You are a woman of great quality–responsibly using your God-given gift of creativity…….and such a great mom too!
