NBC Conn. Morning Show: Raw Pecan Pie and Party/Holiday Eating Tips
I know you think I’m being lazy by just posting videos and not writing..and maybe that is just a teeny bit true. It’s Friday! :) But I’ll write more very soon!
I wanted to post this since it was from right around Christmas, and for some reason I forgot to.
NOTE TO SELF: Do not make Raw Pecan Pies on air anymore!! If anyone saw my Good Day LA segment, where I also made this same Raw Pecan Pie, you’ll see what I did was pre-blended the filler, since the blender is so loud, and pressed the pie crust in while talking on air. Both hosts helped me, but in a short segment there wasn’t enough time to press the crust in totally evenly, so it looked “lumpy” when I poured the mixture in.
In this segment, I reversed it. I had the crust mixture already pressed in, and made the filling on air. WELL the blender was so loud (and it was really just to demo), so I turned it off after a few seconds. It certainly did NOT mix everything through very well… It was lumpy so I stopped pouring it into the pie. (That was the right thing to do right? I mean what else could I do??). I can’t believe the camera man sat on that terrible shot of the mixture for like 30 seconds!! What I really wanted him to do was sit on the shot of the finished pie pieces and what they are SUPPOSED to look like. Actually, I think the whole thing is kind of hilarious!! :) And what a different kind of host he was compared to the some other shows’ hosts… such as eh hem, the Fox Philly hosts. At least he didn’t ask me any personal questions!
Btw the cameramen come late into the kitchen demo area, and I was miked up 30 seconds before going on air. Very stressful, and not my favorite!!!!!!!
Enjoy the segment, and have a great weekend. See you back here soon.
P.S. I thought of a quieter recipe you could try after mastering the pecan pie, one of my delectable delights, my truffle recipe!
