Major lapse in my blogging. The past several months have been a whirlwind to say the least. As I mentioned in a previous post I was asked to compete on Food Rush, a show on the Live Well Network. I applied mostly to quiet my friends. They had wanted me to apply to other realty shows, but I was frightened.
Plain in simple. I was afraid.
Of what? Judgement, looking like a fool, just the usual paranoid thoughts.
So I applied.
The producers asked me to fill out an application and present of video of why I should be on the show.
I had an interview.
Congratulations to me … I was selected.
I was off to San Francisco. Yes, my four blog readers. My favorite city on the west coast.
There are three baking competitions: Candy, Cake, and Cookie. I competed in the Cookie Battle. I have to say this experience was the most exciting moment of my life. Never have I ever dreamed that I would be on a food cooking show.
Food Rush gave me the confidence to make The Pastry Prophet into a business. I know I talked about it for a long time. Once again that fear of failure and mockery held me back. I finally know what it feels like to take a chance and see something great come out of it.
I’ve told everyone and anyone who gives me the time of day about my time at Food Rush. I gained more than a free trip to San Francisco. I met lovely people – the crew of Food Rush and especially my producer who kept me sane and blogger of Home Beccanomics and her mother. Becca and her mom deserve their own travel show!
Surprised on how far I’ve come? Look at where I plan to go!

Until then here’s the Food Rush Holiday commercial.
