CHECK IT OUT – I’m on the stage of the Hollywood Bowl!
Okay, okay, I’m actually standing on the barrier that separates the audience from the orchestra pit, but that’s practically the stage. And even though I’m a sublime tenor (that’s a lie) and a virtuoso tuba player (another lie), I wasn’t at the Bowl to showcase my musical abilities. I was there… FOR A WORKOUT!

TUNE IN ALERT! Remember this picture of me and Food Network star Giada de Laurentiis from last fall?
That was from October, when I was in an episode of “Giada at Home,” Giada’s Food Network cooking show. And I’m proud to share that… the episode is airing THIS WEEKEND!
SET YOUR DVR OR ALARM CLOCK: The episode is called “Mini Me” and it premieres Sunday, May 18th at 10:30am on the Food Network. Read the rest of this entry »

I have a quickie recipe for you today. I didn’t take many pictures, partly because I was dealing with raw fish and didn’t want to touch my camera, and partly because I didn’t really know how this was going to turn out. It turned out well, though, and I wish I had more photos, but I don’t, so we’re all just going to have to deal.

I’m so excited to share this… I have a new partnership with the LA Salad Company, and I’m the new Guest Blogger on their website! It’s a really cool arrangement: in exchange for free veggies, I’m giving them veggie-based recipes for their website. I’m featured at the bottom of LA Salad Company’s home page (see it here), and have my very own page that has photos, a quickie version of my weight-loss story, and, of course, the recipes.
LA Salad Company sells all sorts of veggies to restaurants and supermarkets all across the United States and Canada. A couple recent recipes – my Baked Green Bean Fries and my Beef and Butternut Stew – were made using their products, and they were delicious. But don’t worry, loyal readers, nothing will end up on my LA Salad Company page that you can’t also find right here!
The first veggies my friends at the LA Salad Company sent me were… zucchinis!
And I had a great idea about what I was going to do with them. Read the rest of this entry »
