Dining with the Doc: A Week in the Life

It's been a busy, busy week!  In addition to the usual "physician" stuff, I had several different "foodie" things that I was working on. First, I wrapped up two different recipe development jobs for national food magazines- I'll keep you posted about their upcoming publication. For now I’ll just say that my husband Pete didn’t mind all the burger tastings that took place in our kitchen!  Then I spent all day Wednesday filming a commercial that will be run on the Food Network!  I had the honor of being a judge on Chopped: Open Your Basket, a mini version of the show Chopped, which airs as a commercial during the show.  I had never done anything like this before and it was so interesting to see how much work goes into filming a one-minute commercial!  Overall it was a great day and the entire crew couldn’t have been nicer.  I can’t wait to see it when it airs!  During the last few days I completed a guest post for the wonderful Full Belly Sisters- stay tuned for more about this later in the week.  And I also shared a post with a great site called Nutri-Savvy.  Finally, I'm now working on a spicy and sweet tropical shrimp salad that I’ll be sharing with you soon.

Phew!  So with all that said, today's a perfect day to highlight a few of the wonderful recipes that have been posted by some great blogging friends of mine.






















I hope all of these delicious dishes satisfy your cravings!  Bon app├ętit!

  1. You've had a busy week with a little fun tucked in to keep it interesting. I'll look for you on Food Network, I watch that a lot. Right now watching reruns of 'Two Fat Ladies'.
    Sleep well my friend, and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

    1. I had a lot of fun judging- I've competed in a lot of cooking contests but this was the first time I was on the other side of the judging table. It was a lot less stressful! I love ciabatta and have never actually had a whole wheat version- can't wait to try it!
