2014- Tasty already!!

Hello 2014!!!

I can already tell this is going to be a year filled with abundance, and I’m hitting the ground running! I am back on set (just started yesterday) with Bobby and Alton for another season of Next Food Network Star and I’m pretty excited to see what these contestants can bring. But, before I had to return to "foodie duty", I had a pretty great holiday where I was able to totally unplug, relax, and spend some much wanted time with my family in Aspen! I took so many photos and videos, I thought my phone was going to have a meltdown… but it didn’t, and now I can share some with you!


Jade learned to ski for the first time, and she LOVED it. She was a natural, which surprised nobody, since her Daddy was practically born with skis on! I think her favorite part was that he taught her. She was a fast learner and was ready to take a ride up to the top of the mountain in no time! Look at her go!

And this is what happens when I bite off more than I can chew on a cross-country trail…

It was an amazing time and I am so so grateful for all the memories we made. I can’t wait for our next snowy adventure. And while we’re on “adventure,” the third book in my kids book series “Recipe for Adventure- Hong Kong!” is out TODAY!!! I am super proud of it and can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks. One of my favorite things is seeing instagrams of kids making the recipes in the back of the books, so if you whip any of the Hong Kong treats with your little ones, make sure you share them with me!! @GDeLaurentiis

Here’s to a great year ahead!! Bring it on, 2014! We’re hungry and coming at you!
