On Friday night, It followed Ham on the Street star George Duran. Then I posed for a picture with him.
These last few weeks have been busy, both with teaching classes at Maceys Grocery Store, and getting ready for the Deseret Morning News Fall Home Show.
I taught 3 classes this year, one Friday night, and 2 on Saturday. I met some more celebrities both from the Food Network, and HGTV. There's some pictures below.

This week I did an slowcooker presentation for members of the Larry H. Miller group, at his highrise building on 94th South.
They asked me to come and do a lunch and presentation. There were about 20 people there, and I had fun. I took my neighbor Kathy with me to help out hauling all the stuff I needed to give the presentation.
I made Chicken Tortilla soup and Triple Chocolate Cake for them to sample after the presentation. It was a profitable day, and there are now a few more owners of my 101 Things to do with a Slowcooker book because of it!
Triple Chocolate Cake (2 cakes)
Here is the view from the office of the
Larry H. Miller Group where I did the presentation.

What have I been up to, let me see......I have been busy being a Mom, and have only just survived the summer. Now the kids are back in school (at least part time for the little one in pre-school) and that leaves me with a few minutes each day to work on this blog. I am still teaching classes at the local Macey's grocery store, and have been on TV in the last week, too, on the KSL Studio 5 show. For my appearance on TV last week, I did some recipes featured in my 101 Things to do with Ground Beef cookbook, which is available for purchase on my website.
Anyway, I will try to be better at updating this, and keeping you up to date on what's been happening.

This week what I have been focussing on is to get my foot in the door with one of the many Home Shopping Networks, to see if they would be interested in carrying one or more of my books. Personally I would like to see at least the 101 Things to do with a Slow Cooker book sold, but beggars can't be choosers, and any publicity would be great!
I have submitted some applications, so I guess time will tell.

Anyway, it was pretty funny to me at least! I think I will send the DJs a free copy of the book, and see if that generates any free publicity for me!

So this is my first book, that I co-authored. I am teaching a class to a Relief Society group in Sandy, Utah tonight. I often teach classes covering the basics of using a slow cooker (crock-pot). I take along most of the 14 slow cookers that I myself own.
Funny story: When my huband and I got married we got 7 slow cookers as gifts, and ended up returning all but 2. Now I am up to 14--all sizes, shapes and colors, and have even had 11 full and cooking at a time before!
Anyway, during the classes I teach, I go over some hints and tips for using a slow cooker to cook meals, and bring along yummy samples of one of my favorite recipes: Triple Chocolate Cake. Yes, you can do cakes in a crock-pot!! If anyone reading this is in Utah, and would be interested in having me do a presentation, you can contact me thru my website, www.slowcooker101.com
