Next Food Network Star?

Hi everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the marshmallow movie I made—it’s soooo cheesy, choppy and dorky but it’s my first one ever! I need to get a new memory card with much more space on it though before making any more (wouldn’t it be fun to do one every weekend on a new dessert though?!) because this one I have now only holds 2 minutes of data and then fills up. So, every two minutes I would have to download the data on the computer, erase and start a whole new clip. Yeah..umm it took 3 hours! Oh, and I really don’t have that funny lisp in real life either. That’s just my camera voice ;).

Anyways—this morning before all the movie drama took place, I did do that a-m-a-z-i-n-g yoga session via ipod. I did the “Detox Flow” from YogaDownloads and it was great—my quads will be sore for sure though in the morning after all those “awkward chair poses” and bending and twisting. After yoga, I made a quick lunch to take in the car with me because I was in a rush and was leaving right around that time. I made a delicious and fast hummus and cheese sammie (the usual 1/4th cup hummus with a slice of cheese on Rudi’s whole wheat) and brought a container of blueberries to go. It was the perfect quick and healthy meal!



Mid-shoot (haha) I snacked on some of these delish sesame peanuts my mom had in her cabinet. These are sooo addicting and this is where portion control really should come into play because, while they are healthy nuts, it’s easy to go overboard! I had a small handful with a huge ripe plum (oh, and tons of marshmallow fluff!).



My mom and I are going to Flemings tonight for dinner. I’ve never ordered steak from there because the salmon and the veggies are SO good! Seriously, Flemings salmon is the best salmon in a restaurant that I have ever had. Ever. I’m also looking forward to having a nice glass of wine :).

I’ll report back later!

oh! and be sure to vote for me for the Next Food Network Star! hahahaha 😉

    i loved your video! i was just wondering, about your yoga downloads – how does it work, exactly? do you just listen to instructions or do you plug it into your computer, or watch a video on the ipod itself?

    Hey Jenna- love you the video (and the apron). Question- do you make your own hummus? If so, how do you do it? I ran across a recipe that takes out the olive oil (cuts cals and fat) but I wasn’t sure if this would be any good. Also, have you ever made a black bean type hummus variation?

    I completely agree! Fleming’s Salmon = Incredible and always always ALWAYS cooked to perfection with that nice crust on the outside and the medium/medium rare velvety smoothe inside! YUM 🙂 Enjoy it!

    (The Veggie Plate is really good there too, though!)

    Enjoy your time with your mom!

    people tell me I have an accent and I am always so baffled…from where?! I had a much thicker southern accent when I lived in alabama and south carolina but I thought that faded by now…hehe

    Kelly L,

    Sorry for just getting to your question now! I don’t make my own hummus because I don’t have a food processor. I buy Cedar’s hummus from the store OR the most natural (least ingredients possible) one I can find. I love roasted garlic flavors! I’ve tasted black bean hummus and didn’t like it as much as regular….a little warning about taking out the olive oil—it won’t taste as “authentic” when you do that and could end up dry. Remember, olive oil is a healthy fat for your heart as long as you keep your portion size right. let me know how it goes!


    It downloads straight to my itunes (i have a mac) and then I import it on my ipod and listen to it through my headphones. I believe there are some samples on the website that you can hear what they say in the class before you buy it..
