Rachael Ray, move over....

Friday night I was front row and center watching my daughter, Steph
demonstrate and compete at the Kenmore Live Studio in Chicago, Mommy Bloggers vs. Foodie Bloggers. She was 1 of 3 mommy bloggers chosen to compete. One of the top chef judges was from La Cordon Bleu and he loved the pasta dish she made. It was such a fun night filled with great recipes that involved 3 major veggies. Cauliflower, spinich & carrots were to be picked from to use in your recipe. Steph chose spinich for her lemon pasta dish. The concept was to get kids to eat more veggies. The audience got to sample each dish. I can honestly say, I did enjoy all the dishes. The Foody bloggers did end up winning the competion, but it was close.
Steph had her own personal chef who helped her with prep work. She is a natural behind that counter. She walked away with some nice gifts from Kenmore. This was a most enjoyable evening in my favorite city. Anyone can go to a live show, so if you are in the area, stop in and check it out.

This sounds like such a great concept and great idea! SOME DAY I am getting to Chicago... !!!! It's on my forever list!!!! xo!!!!

OK what's the recipe for spinach pasta? Could you substitute kale for the spinach and quinoa noodles as the pasta? One of my favorite breakfasts is kale and scrambled eggs.

Steph looked so professional and not at all nervous about cooking in front of an audience.

I so wish I could have been there. It just wasn't in the cards though. I'm glad you had fun.
