I’m No Martha Stewart…

Need a good laugh?  Well you’ve come to the right place!  Recently I convinced myself to send in an audition tape for Grill It! with Bobby Flay on The Food Network. After shooting, editing and watching this tape over and over I have come to the conclusion that I am indeed much better behind the camera!

I had an incredibly fun time making the video, as my friend Michelle let me use her gorgeous home for the location.  She’s an interior designer, as well as a food stylist so the location was beautiful as was the food.  Another friend Robin came along and was my cinematographer and editor.  Since we have all known each other since we were 12, we laughed and ate and drank wine while prepping for my small screen debut.  Now that I’ve seen the end product, I think I probably should have had a bit more wine…

I came up with an intense and complex spice rub for steak, that I called Cheryl’s Smoky and Spicy Steak Rub.  Yeah I know, so original.  I really stretched to come up with that title.  Anyway, as instructed I posted my video on the Food Network website to be viewed, commented on, and laughed at by all of America.  Go check out my competition and rate my video yourself.

Without further ado, here is a link to my audition tape for Grill It! with Bobby Flay.

  1. Cheryl, I thought your video was nicely done. While not too complicated for novice home cooks, the recipe is inspired and clever.
