First time to host!

September 21, 2022


I love trying new things — unless it involves alligators or raisins. 

This new experience was just the kind of thing I love  —  it was my very first time hosting the Andy Andrews Blue Plate Special which airs every Tuesday and Thursday at 12:15 Central on his social media sites. Andy was out of town, so I jumped into his chair and interviewed a very dear friend, Lise Ode

Lise and I were in college together so conversation was easy. She has followed an amazing path through her passion for baking, so there was plenty to discuss.

A two-time finalist in the Pillsbury Bake-Off, Lise transformed her culinary skills into an online business. Her Mom Loves Baking site has over a half million followers. - 500,000+!!!!! She's a sugar rock star.  

Lise's site specializes in easy-as -pie recipes, although she also has a few gourmet things tossed in from time to time. 

Her most popular recipe has been the Copycat version of Nothing Bundt Red Velvet Cake

It looks scrumptious and has a surprising secret ingredient.

You can click HERE or on the photo above to see how the interview went. I kept thinking "1. Sit up straight and 2. Slow the zingityzangitydingity down!"  I do tend to talk a bit fast (for a Southerner). I managed to hit both goals about 80% of the time. 

Thanks to Andy Andrews for loaning me his chair. It was fun, and I didn't encounter one single alligator or raisin.
