Studio 5--Bahama Chicken Soup

In March, I was invited on Studio 5 to share my Bahama Chicken Soup from my latest cookbook, 30-Minute Meals for Families. This is a lovely soup with the flavors of the tropics. I love this Caribbean style chicken soup.

Hayley was kind to come along to help with the packing and transporting supplies.

 Some people like Brooke Walker wear pregnancy very well.

 Colorful and hip Studio 5 set.

GTU Kitchen--Rigatoni Bolognese

Before going on the air, I had a chance to chat with Michelle Money--former Bachelor Contestant. She asked me about my cookbooks and I asked her about The Bachelor. We both laughed about being on television, but not watching television.
