Something's in the Water at Food Network

By: Secretary Confidential

A blizzard may have hit the east coast, but it was all showers here at FN --- baby showers. There are five (count them) FIVE women expecting here. To celebrate the imminent increasing of the FN family, pink and blue balloons, cuddly baby blankets and rubber duckies decorated our conference room. Of course, the stork-themed desserts stole this tablecloth's show. Fun stuff.

We may have not had Ina's full course meal or or Giada's spring time shower fare but we did have an assortment of sugary treats, like home made cupcakes, courtesy of one multi talented production coordinator. Let me tell you these mommies-to-be may not perform in front of the camera, but they all have the culinary skills to do so. Take our Director of Product Management, Tracy Rubine, for example. Her cooking days are waning and energy is fading, but she did whip up this pork chop recipe the other night.

Tracy advises, "be careful not to overcook the pork" Got ya, Ms. Rubine. Another mama, Narisa Wild, our Director Website Product and Industry Development has been indulging lately in this yogurt and granola concoction from Tyler. Apparently, she has been leaning toward lighter and sweeter fare in the evening (digestion has been proving difficult due to her full tummy). Narisa also mentioned that you can do variations on this little delight - alternate fruits, dried fruits and even nuts to mix it up a bit, and says that "the yogurt can also be substituted for frozen yogurt or ice cream." Yummy!

Well, the way I ate today, it looks as if I might be expecting. Perhaps, that will warrant a party?

Truly,
