This past week has been super busy for not only FN's Studio A, but also a few outside shoots, as well!

The Big Bite personality that is Guy Fieri has been cooking up a storm with some of his closest friends (hint - there are TONS of special guests in the upcoming episodes of Guy's Big Bite). But not only that, Tyler Florence is back with another special, and it’s all about burgers coming in May! And this past Saturday, I got to hang out with Daisy Martinez of Viva Daisy. We shot around the Union Square Green Market and a few amazing locations in Jackson Heights, Queens (not too far from where I live!). One of the most classic moments happened at Daisy's shoot when Mario Batali walked right pass all of us - we weren't rolling at that moment, but it was still pretty hilarious.

Now that you're caught up with whats been keeping our cameras busy, here's an update on my little garden! While fairly upset that I had no sprouts last week, I started dreading the idea of only having 2 large pots of dirt on my desk. My friend Jon built me a shelf which lifted my spirits, but still, no sprouts… just bowls of dirt. And then it happened!!! This morning I came in to find some green stems popping their little heads out of the soil - BASIL! (Thankfully my little garden at home is strong, green and beautiful!)

Until next week - Cheers!
