A Year of Slow Cooking

Monday, February 16, 2009

Good Morning America


Hey!

I'm going to be on Good Morning America on Thursday (2/19) morning.

So, um, you should watch.


I'm a little nervous.

I'm not going on for the Slow Cooker Challenge with Emeril, although thank you so much to everyone who emailed me about that---it sounds amazing, but I didn't get my act together in time to enter.
I am going to demonstrate a slow-cooked meal, but I'm not sure yet which one.

I'm leaving Wednesday morning, and will only stay one night. But! Some pork recipes will magically post all by themselves because I have finally figured out how to auto-post. It only took 14 months...

and. I've never flown by myself, so I'm kind of sort of freaking out.
and. do I wear the red or the blue sweater? (say the blue one)

and. will the zit on my chin clear in time?

and. since it's live I can't screw up---which makes me even more freaked out. But I've heard there's a few second delay in case someone drops the F-bomb. Which I'm not planning on doing, but you never really know, so it's good to have that as a back up just in case.

I think.

You're amazing and inspiring! I am fairly new to crockpotting and hesitant where to start. I'm trying the "candy chicken" tomorrow. Good luck on GMA, Break a leg! :) And thank you!

Joey said...

Very cool! And I can say that I knew you before you were famous.

internetjen said...

im confused. if you arent going for crock potting, then why are you going? 8)

Crockpot Lady said...

eeps, you're right Jen, that is confusing. I'm going on to demonstrate a slow-cooked meal, but not for the Emeril challenge.

good luck and have a great time!

Jasmine said...

Congrats- I will make sure to watch you and the show. Thanks for the info. Ok the blue sweater. You'll be great.

Joy Howse said...

Wow, that is awesome. I am sure you will do a great job, and I will be tuning in to watch of course.

Char said...

I will be tuning in!...YOU GO GIRL!!!!

Jackie said...

You will be FANTASTIC!

Wear the blue, it will look great with your perfectly clear skin!

marianne said...

How very cool! Good luck, have fun, and wear the blue sweater - the TV poobahs prefer blue, it shows up better on TV. :)

Kindra said...

Oprah says the most flattering color on camera is blue...so I say the blue one.

itsahumanzoo said...

How exciting! I don't have cable, or else I'd watch it. Maybe I can DVR it at my in-laws house and watch it later. Good luck and wear the blue sweater!!

Chief Family Officer said...

I'll be at work, so I'll miss it but hopefully there will be a video on the ABC site or You Tube! Good luck, wear the blue (and concealer if you need it), and have a great time!!!

Amanda said...

ohh so setting my DVR now!!

You will be fabulous! Don't even worry.
Pimple will be gone! Toothepaste helps dry them out if you get too close!!

Will be watching. we LOVE our crock-pot!!

Christina said...

Wow, how exciting!!

I'd never flown alone until a few years ago and I was insanely nervous until I got to the airport and was getting to my gate alone. I had this weird sense of peace wash over me to just be alone and have a vacation with only my needs on my mind. So hopefully you'll experience the same!

Also, to clear up zits super fast, I usually put a bigggg blob of zit cream on at night and then a band-aid over and the zit is usually only a red mark by morning.

Good luck!!!

JodieMo said...

Congratulations! I know you are nervous, but you will be great! I'll be watching!

MemeGRL said...

The blue will be lovely. And you will be awesome! Can't wait to see you. Have fun!

Jason and Fawnda said...

Wear the blue and be yourself and everyone will LOVE it! Good luck!
Fawnda

Handmade Housewife... said...

Totally laughing at the F-bomb thing! You'll do great. I'll definately watch. JMO but my family loves the Autumn Sausage Casserole and Rotissery Style Chicken. Those would be definate winners to make! Good luck :)

-Hayley

Sera said...

How exciting for you! Wow! We've tried several of your recipes at our house, and we are LOVING your site. We're eating real food again. :)

patsijean said...

Our personal favorite is the Pasta Fagioli, you can feed lots of people for only about $7.00 using the best ground surloin, followed closely by Crockpot Cream Cheese Chicken. It is so good: we serve this on pasta, rice and toast. Whatever you choose, I am sure it will be wonderful.

seasonsmom said...

I am so excited for you! You go, girl! I've made so many recipes from your blog. I've used my crockpot before, but now even more! My newest one (cracked a few in my lifetime) has 3 inserts in it. So, I soak my beans in one insert while another one cooks overnite. Is that swell? Blue sweater, like everyone says, listen to us, please, red is not photogenic and you will have your pic taken, for sure. I wish i could fly somewhere by myself (which I did, but that was 4 months ago but I am ready again). I've been with my kids 24x7 since husband works overseas. I homeschool them too. SO, I would be very "nervous" to get away. Nervous about what to read or do first! LOL! You'll do just fine! Now you are a VIP, so act like one in confidence! I'll have to run to the gym in the am just to watch you. I got no cable at home. It's also my son's BDay. I get a day off from school! Yeah!

Leann I Am said...

HAHAHA....my daughter just leaned over my shoulder and we both said that we totally have to DVR it, just in case we're too busy in our morning routine! She's 12 and she's a fan too! In fact, I just made your Cream Cheese Chicken tonight, AGAIN, and it was a hit. AGAIN.

You rock, and we're totally gonna watch!

Erin from Long Island said...

Oh I am so excited for you! i love watching people on TV and being able to say "hey, i know him/her!"

And i think it was really cute to show the random number thingy in this post!

Troy, Sarah and Lucy Sherman said...

i was going to say red because red is a power color or something like that...but then i looked at all the comments and it looks like you will probably go with blue! either way you will be stunning!!!

Rachel said...

You will be great! Both on the plane and off. I will tune in!

toby said...

Wow, how exciting - congratulations! Even if your zit doesn't behave, I'm sure the tv guys will make it disappear :)
By the way, I made your Obama chili this past weekend and it was a HUGE hit with everyone - thank you!

Jessica said...

I'm so excited to watch you on GMA! Good luck, your other bloggies are routing for you!

Diane-The Whole Gang said...

You're a rock star! I'm setting my TIVO now. I'll add something wonderful about you to my daily list of affirmations. Have I told you, you rock!

Reen said...

That is super cool! I'm sure you'll do great. Your blog is awesome. I love checking in every day to see "what's cookin'" :)

Quiltin' Jenny said...

You'll be great! No worries, just try not to drop the f-bomb and it will be fine. ;o) But even if you do, hey, that's what the delay is for. So it's all good.

Seriously, good luck and we'll be watching. Or TiVo-ing since it's carpool time. Break a leg!

Jenn said...

How exciting. And to think that I can say . . . I discovered her blog before she was famous.

Good luck! I can't wait to see you!

Debbies Doodle said...

I am going to watch.. and record it.. so if i hear the f-boom.. I can hear it over and over..hahah... You will do fine.. How did they find you..how did you get picked..
See you thursday..
deb

suddenlyfrugal said...

I've been on national TV a number of times, including Good Morning America two years ago, if you need any advice. Wear what feels comfortable and looks the best on you. You're going to be great. Good luck.

Just g said...

Congratulations!
I've been on Good Morning America before, it was lots of fun and a great memory.
Just relax and be yourself. You will love it.

Robyn said...

Congratulations!!!!

And, definitely go with the blue sweater -- it's the best color for television.

I'll be watching!

Melissa said...

From a PR/media relations perspective (which happens to be my field)...blue is the best color you can wear on TV.

Good luck and we'll be watching!

(F)redddy said...

How very exciting. Congrats.

Lizzybee said...

Good Luck! And you look just stunning in blue:)

Melanie Dorsey said...

Blue is better on camera than red.

Left of Ordinary said...

Congratulations! I'll try to watch so I can say "I KNOW HER!"... cos, you know... it's all about me. :P

Seriously, very cool.

The Phillips Place said...

Ooooh that is so exciting!! I'm going to set up the DVR right after this!

You're going to be great!

Cathy Davis said...

How amazing! (Wear the blue!!)

Good luck :-).

Baby Beth said...

Tea tree oil will help clear the zit up...but they will also have people doing your makeup so I'm sure they can cover it with no issue. Wear whatever you feel comfortable in and makes you feel like a million bucks. You'll do great...I love your recipes.

Gigi said...

Way to go Crockpot Lady...you'll do great! I'm always clicking into your blog to try new recipes. Most recent one is the chick pea with cayenne. I loved them and so did my husband (he doesn't venture much so this was a real surprise.)

Veronica said...

You will be just fine! You were great on Rachael Ray and you'll breeze thru this! You're a Pro! I'll be watching.

Rebekah said...

Good luck! I'll be sure to tune in! I know you'll be fabulous!

corporatebeach said...

I view you through a syndication feed. LOVE your ideas, and appreciate your posts.

Good luck on television. Now I'll be looking for that zit! loL!

Kim said...

Makeup will cover the zit! You're going to be great. That's a lot of "firsts" for you. I'm sure the next year will be full of them. Enjoy!!

Noel said...

For my money, that brown sugar chicken can't be beat!

Just another SAHM said...

WOW!!
Enjoy the trip, you'll be marvelous! Blue sweater sounds perfect & I've heard that zits do not show up on TV unless they were put there on purpose by make-up specialists. ;)
I'll have to set the Tivo!
Hugs!
Betty

Katie said...

Yea! How exciting! Yes, wear the blue sweater and I'm pretty sure they have someone who can cover up that zit for you. You'll be great!

marissa said...

Go Steph! Just bring some gum and trashy magazines for the flight and you'll be fine. We all know you will be great. I am going to set my Tivo right now! Can't wait to watch.

Jaelyn said...

You will do great - good luck!

Jaelyn said...

You will do great - good luck!

Heather said...

Good luck!! I'm sure you will do a great job.

Chrissie said...

The proactive repairing lotion would clear that up overnight. My daughter tried it once and worked. She didn't even have the whole system.
That is cool you're gonna be on tv. I love Emeril. I will try to remember to watch.
Good luck and don't worry about the flying you'll be fine. I love to fly.
Take care, Chrissie

Geeky Mama said...

Good luck! You'll be fabulous.

jan said...

good luck, Steph. You'll do great (of course). I agree about the blue because red's hard to pick up on camera. Your segment won't be that long, but you'll have a great time!
Later on. I'll tell you what I did with pork, inspired by more than one of your recipes.

Debbi said...

Good luck. I'll know you'll do fine on GMA. I have to work that day but, will tape the show. You'll do just fine - pretend you're blogging!

Anonymous said...

wear the blue--definitely.

and here's a hint for flying--if you lift your feet up off the floor, you can't feel the turbulence as much. ;-)

Seriously, think of all you've acoomplished and know that you are a powerful woman.

-Terri

Jen said...

Blue sweater.

And also, they will put so much makeup on you that you will never be able to tell if there is a zit.

Bring a good book for the flight. Or maybe some liquor. Whichever.

And have fun!! I'm super excited and setting my DVR!

Amy Joel said...

How exciting! You totally deserve it, your recipes make my life good, and you're gonna be great!
And don't worry about flying by yourself - think of it as a chance to relax, have someone wait on you, and be able to read or sleep or whatever you want without getting interrupted (by, say, kids or husband).

Monique said...

Congratulations! We're all excited. My sweet husband set the dvr for me and is trying to steal one of the peking pork chops outta the crock and they're not done yet:) Anyway, i am really happy for u and so are all your readers on here. we got your back girl and are ecstatic for U!! Way to go!

Heather said...

I can't wait to watch! Good luck. Just imagine everyone in their undies, because since I'm at home I will be. :)

ps. try a dab of toothpaste on the zit, it helps dry it up.

mormonhermitmom said...

GMA has makeup artists that can take care of blemishes - they want you to look good too.

Take both sweaters. If Diane is wearing blue, wear red, or vice versa.

Just put on your "I've done this so many times I'm bored" look and hopefully airport security won't frisk you;). No sweat.

the Fbomb? You mean...farfigneugen? GASP

Never thought I'd be a soccer mom! said...

I think you will do just fabulous and will be setting the vcr (yes, i still have one!) to catch it after work. My favorite recipe over the last year was your ratatouille. It was quick, easy and wonderful!

Anonymous said...

Good luck on GMA...I have set my DVR to record!! You'll do awesome! Just be yourself...oh, and the zit...maybe a little bit of neosporin dabbed on to help it heal. :-)

Jodi said...

SO Exciting! I love your blog and what a great thing to be on the Morning show!

Cheri Sicard said...

Best of luck on GMA. Definitely wear the blue, red sometimes doesn't photograph well. In many cases they will tell you not to wear red.

Go get 'em!

Lynn said...

Ultra cool !
Who cares what Oprah says ?...wear your favorite...the blue one and have a blast...I'll TiVo it and watch when I get home !

ChristyACB said...

Good Luck or Break a Leg or whichever one is the actual lucky phrase!

Don't be too nervous, you should be fine!

Be sure and tell us all about it.

Anonymous said...

already have the tape in the gizmo so i can be awed when watching u on gma and relax and enjoy you after...again and again. main thing: relax, but not too much. have fun, and i/we will too. whatever u wear will be just right. congratulations to u and to gma for finding u.

Bridget said...

Wow what fun! I would love to have something important to share with people on TV (I don't) Way cool! Have fun! The lass you think about it the easier it will be (at least for me When I danced on stage it was better for me to just make sure I knew the steps and then let it happen) You will do great!
PS what channel is it on I don't watch TV. (is that embarrassing?)

Christine said...

Wear the blue!! You will look wonderful! You will do great!!

Off to set the DVR. Good luck Steph!!!

Katie said...

Congrats and good luck! You'll be GREAT!

Nola said...

You know what would make your site even more awesome than it already is? A listing of the recipes by the time it takes to make them. I'm a work outside the house mom with a school-aged kid and a toddler, and my husband works second-shift type hours (and so is not home in at dinnertime). I rely on my crock pot several times a week for meals. Because it's hard to cook when the toddler wants to climb up your leg. But, this means I need recipes that take at least 9 hours. Just an idea for if you are ever on bedrest and needs something to do. Ha. I guess they wouldn't all have to be sorted by time, but a special list of the longer, gone all day recipes.

MommyAmy said...

That's so exciting Steph! Good luck on GMA! You'll do awesome, and I for one will tune in. :)

Karen said...

Very cool! Good luck :)

Sarah said...

Good luck! I'll be watching!

Kendra said...

I will DVR it. Dont' worry about the zit. Here are a few tricks. Desitin (yes, the baby butt cream) dries them out. Also, preparation H the night before reduces swelling and redness. If all else fails, they will have a make-up artist there to do your face. They don't let you go on TV with a giant zit. Good Luck!

Patty said...

Good luck! You will do great and I will be watching. I love trying all of your recipes and I am still trying to get friends and family hooked on crockpot cooking as much as I am hooked. Thanks for all of your hard work!

Stephanie said...

Too cool!!!! Good luck and I"ll definitely try to tune in!

Catherine said...

Blue sweater for sure!

Don't worry about the flying -- millions do it everyday and it's fine (I do it a LOT).

Be your own funny and sweet self and it will be a great show!

We're all cheering for you!!

Amy Fussell said...

Definately the BLUE! Blue, solid colors look best on camera. I will try to TiVo it! I am so happy for you and I love your site! I too am addicted to my slow cooker. I am having what I call hamburger stew tonight. Good Luck!
Amy

Heather B said...

HOLY COW!!! That's amazing!!! Congratulations! I'll be tuning in!

nottryingforaboy said...

How exciting!

the blue one
what zit?

You'll do fine! I've got to set my Tivo!

Karina Allrich said...

I just shared this news on Twitter via Alison. Very cool- very exciting! Break a leg. xox

Just call me Mommy said...

Congrats! You will be wonderful!! I look forward to watching you. AGAIN!!! Way to go!!!

Melissa said...

I vote blue sweater! And the models swear by putting a little toothpaste on a break out the night before a big shoot! Might give it a try!

Jason said...

Best of luck to you! I love coming here to find new and interesting recipes. You are so creative. Can't wait to see you on tv!

Amie said...

wow that is sooo awesome! I'm so proud of you and happy for you! Have a wonderful time, take a few deep breaths, and do fab! (have fun too!)

The Roberts' Report said...

WOW that's super cool! I'm proud to say that I knew you before you were on TV, wrote your first recipe book, etc....CHANGE is coming for you!!

Lydia (The Perfect Pantry) said...

Will watch and cheer you on!

Lizzard said...

Blue trumps all colors, IMO. Congratulations! What about challenging Bobby Flay to a slow cooker Throwdown. Now that I would love to see! Flying can be scary, especially by yourself. Bring lots of gadgets (ipod, laptop w/DVDs, playing cards--the tiny ones) or a book to calm you if you can't sleep on planes. Remember to stretch your legs a lot!

Mammatalk said...

Oh, wow! That is so amazing! Congratulations! You're a real celebrity blogger now!

Gayla said...

Dear Steph,

You are smart, and sweet, and funny! You are the real deal. You have been crockpotting consistently for over 365 days! You know how to crockpot and you have taught us about it.
So, go and have a blast doing what you know really well. Wear the blue sweater. And the pimple will be gone. We're all rooting for you. :)

Single PAP said...

i made both taco soup this weekend (that's what i think you should do for GMA--super easy and DELISH and great for newbies like myself--) and some chicken dish with apricot jam. both totally yummy!!!!

congrats on the GMA spot. you'll do great, i'm sure!

catherine said...

zomg! how exciting. i must say, my favorite is the buffalo wing chicken soup (or the proper name)

i'm only allowed to make it once a month now : (

Melanie said...

how exciting! glad for the heads up - we'll [me + my 11 month old] be watching!

~Kim~ said...

How exciting!!! I love reading your blog and I think its super exciting that everyone is going to be able to see how amazing your crockpotting skills are!! Congratulations! I will for sure be watching! :)

Wendyrun said...

you have changed my life since I found your blog in December...so many thanks and hoping I'll remember to tape (I dont know to use the DVR).
BLUE sweater will take the redness out of any blemish but GMA will have your back for sure!!
Does not matter anyway b/c we all have such confidnece in you!

Grogg said...

"and. I've never flown by myself, so I'm kind of sort of freaking out."
Flying alone is fun....no one else's stuff to worry about, no kids...it's nice.

"and. do I wear the red or the blue sweater? (say the blue one)"
Take both with you that morning....someone there will tell you what will look best on you on camera.

"and. will the zit on my chin clear in time?"
No worries. The makeup artist will know exactly what to do!

"and. since it's live I can't screw up"
Sure you can, and NO ONE will care! And if anyone back home says sh** to you about it, ask them when the last time THEY were asked to be on national TV!

Have fun!

Sarah said...

Congratulations!! You'll be totally FAB-U-LOUS!

Wear the blue sweater.

Their make-up artists work miracles, so don't worry. They've seen zits before.

Be yourself. You know how to do this.

natalie said...

Definitely wear the blue...red doesn't always look that great on tv :)

Good luck!

suddenlyfrugal said...

FYI, I hyped your upcoming GMA appearance on my blog today. It's in a post about meal planning

Good luck tomorrow.

My Ice Cream Diary said...

You are getting to be one popular gal! Congrats on the exciting news, can't wait to see you again. =)

MamaChristy said...

Congrats! And when I flew by myself, I LOVED it. You can read or listen to music or sleep. Bliss.

thenotsoskinnykitchen said...

Congrats! I already set the DVR.

You know, Rachael Ray got her TV start on GMA. Just something to keep in mind :)

Ranee said...

I don't have television, so I can't watch, but I would so watch if we did.

Wear the blue, red can be weird on film. The zit will completely clear up, and in fact, the rest of your skin will glow. You will do astoundingly well, and some sponsor will offer to buy all your groceries (even the weird stuff) for a year. And mow your lawn.

Seriously, the plane? Way safer than the car, the cab, the bus. If there was a news story every time a car crashed, the way there is with planes, you'd never get in a car again. My husband flies, and I never worry about him in the air. It's the people on the road I worry about.

Ranee said...

Oh, and bring a book for the plane, so you don't feel too alone. Preferably something from the 18th century that has no F-bombs in it, so your speech will already be set for the show.

Leigh Ann said...

Girl! You are going to rock! Can't wait to actually see you in person. Well, sorta. Good luck and have fun! Tell Diane I send my love.

Taylor said...

Hey! Congrats on being on GMA. You HAVE to wear blue, Oprah says it's an industry thing that blue is the best color for tv :)

Margie G. said...

Wow that's awesome! I am going to DVR the news now so I can FF through commercials :-)

Wilson Wonders said...

I'm watching! I just saw the teaser and you look great! Can't wait to see the segment.

Elle said...

So glad you posted so I could watch! & You picked Blue - It looked Great!!! Way to go Stephanie!

Wilson Wonders said...

Good Job Catherine! LOL
You handled that sooo well! Too funny!

SandyQuilts said...

Hey I just watched you on TV .... you are so so cute. I wished the segment had been longer. It was GREAT. Congrats.

I just watch GMA (I never tune in, but thought it would be great to see you there) -- you did great!!! I'm planning to make the lasagna next week. Thank you and I can't wait for the book!

Way to go! You were awesome! I've been lurking for some time now and have tried several dishes out. (Yum! by the way) I can't wait to try the hash brown breakfast. Great job today!

I'm watching you on GMA right now and you are lovely. Thank you for doing the show so more of us could find out about your blog. I'm definitely now a fan!

Congrats on a great showing Stephanie! And that buffalo chicken lasagna looks SO YUMMY! Gonna try that one soon!

MyLinda said...

I just watched GMA...you were GREAT! Well done!

Mitch said...

Saw you this morning on GMA, then looked for your blog. Great job - you're a natural in front of the camera! Too bad GMA didn't give you the full half hour! Maybe the food network has that half-hour spot for you!!!

I'll be back to the blog to check out more recipes.

juanita said...

You did great! I enjoyed your segment very much.

Kim said...

Ahhh! I DVRed GMA and I only had room for an hour and 45 minutes... of course, you were on in the last 15 minutes I couldn't tape! Hopefully I'll find it on the internet somewhere :)

I watched it this morning you did a great job, the host lets call him Bob,could have done better though.

You were awesome STEPH. And we know your name. :-) The blue looked great and your skin was flawless.

Keisha said...

HEY Girl!
I finally found you! I watched you this morning on TV.. (which you look MARV. darling) & I was loving that Buff. Chicken recipe.. I was craving it for dinner tonight!! It looked YUM-O!
Anyway.. glad I found you.. I'm a SAHM of 3, love blogging, & I too love my crockpot! So, I'm really excited to find some new recipes!
Blessings to you!

Anonymous said...

I just finished posting a comment on the GMA website. I saw your segment and was outraged at the way they rushed through it, got your name wrong and never mentioned this site. You deserved better. I love your blog and love my crockpot. I'm looking forward to your cookbook.

Marni said...

Crap! I'm reading this to late to watch :(
I'm sure it was FAB!

Rebecca said...

You did great! Thanks for sharing all your knowledge!

CheshireKate said...

I saw it this morning and you did great. I have round crockpots and now I want ones like you used on there LOL. Seriously my husband even asked what i was watching and I was like "its the Crockpot blogger" and he says "oh yeah I am taking the last of the brown sugar chicken for lunch, tell her thanks" Seriously you were good and it was fun to see you in my living room.

Paula said...

I set my DVR and watched you on the show just now. YOU ROCKED! You are famous beyond words... Just the beginning of your book tour. Brace yourself for a long run girl.

Your Blue sweater was the way to go. You shined!

Cyndi said...

Awesome! Just saw you on GMA.... You are doing a great thing! I love my Crocker but don't have the time to really learn it so I stick with the same 5 things - I am branching out now, girl! Thanks so much! Best of luck and best wishes!

Daughter of the King said...

You did great and had you not been on - I never would have found you. And we love slow cooking...homeschooling, full time job...busy lives. Thanks for your site. I cannot wait to see all you've written.

Pieceful Bits said...

You looked beautiful...and I have found your blog now!!!!
Can't wait to scan the posts.

You were amazing! You looked so beautiful in the blue and you did such a good job.

I saw you today and you did very well. So poised and funny too. I am so glad you chose the lasagna! I thought to myself, hmmm...the lasagna I make every week is famous now.

Lea Ann Stiller said...

I watched you today on GMA, and you did a GREAT JOB:) I absolutely LOVE your ideas and making use of the wonderful Crock Pot. I am going to try the Buffalo Chicken Lasagna recipe this week-end. I also will look forward to purchasing your book!
Good Luck,

For anyone who missed it you can go to ABC.com and watch the segment on your computer. I posted a complaint about the way they rused the segment and I just checked back and saw that I was not alone. A lot of people were upset about it just like me. I did mention A Year Of Crockpotting in my comment so people could find you.

Anonymous said...

I just watched the GMA...they could have done with way less Oscar stuff and had you on for a way longer segment. BTW...good color choice on your top!! It was great to see you on TV!!

You'll probably have to copy & paste it.

Steph, you are so ADORABLE, and the blue sweater looked wonderful!
Great job!

I also made a post there:

"I agree 100% with katklaw777.

Stephanie has shown the convenience, versatility, and frugality (something we all need right now!) of crock-pot cooking to a whole new generation!

Her blog is witty and fun to read, and her willingness to experiment and try new things is inspiring to us all.

Please bring Stephanie back ASAP, and give her more time.
Let her wonderful personality and helpful tips shine, and lose the stupid comments!"

Oops, I just realized if you read that out of context there's a tiny chance you might think Steph made "the stupid comments" Not so! That would be the host Chris Cuomo! Shame on him!

You Rock! If you weren't already married to Mr. Perfect, I'd marry you myself. *mwah*

You did great today!

Congratulations on your wonderful success. I'll be happy to say ... "I knew you when...". :)

You were awesome :-) I was excited and nervous right along with you. It's a bummer your host wasn't more experienced and that he made a few mistakes, but you shined right through.
Thanks for letting us all know in time so we could see your moment of glory !!!

Thank you for leaving your family and traveling to be on GMA! I catch bits and pieces of the show while managing my own family in the morning and was thrilled to see your segment. You were awesome, so comfortable and great recipes. Can't wait to get my hands on that cookbook!

I saw you on GMA and love your blog!! The slow cooker is my favorite although my friends think I am nuts. But it is wonderful to come home to a hot meal after a long day at work-who wants to cook after work!? I have your Taco Soup cooking right now for dinner tonight! I am looking forward to trying the other recipes as well! Can you tell I am crock pot obsessed?? You have a new fan-Thanks again!!

I am a 47 year old sound editor and play guitar in a band, married with 2 dogs. I have reading your site for over a year, trying different recipes and just wanted to tell you that you did great on GMA, completely in control and handled everything like a champ. Hope the flight was okay for a first time experience !!!

Hope your GMA appearance went beautifully. If you let your personality shine through the same way you do in your blog, then you were a rousing success.

You go, girl!

I taped your appearance on GMA and just finished watching it. You were awesome! I wish they hadn't rushed through the segment so quickly! Thank you for mentioning that your recipes are gluten-free. We Celiacs appreciate it!!!
