Since I had a newborn when none of my friends had birthed babies yet, I spent the majority of 2009 cuddling with my boppy pillow and watching Food Network episodes on repeat. This was a win-lose, as I learned a lot about cooking, but did not learn a significant amount about how to lose baby weight, which I found to be a highly overrated anyhow.
This daily routine of watching and cooking and eating and repeating is how my friend Giada De Laurentiis and I first met five years ago. I was just drawn in by her magnetic smile and friendly demeanor on her show Everyday Italian. She was always on time, she arrived with a smile, and she wasn’t there to judge me for being in my jammies at 4:30 in the afternoon — she just wanted to hang out and make some biscotti. BFF.
I don’t get to see my girl Giada as much as I did in 2009, which is why I am SO thrilled about our night out on November 13th. We are going to the Majestic Theatre where she will share onstage her inspiration for her new cookbook, Happy Cooking! I could NOT be more proud! I can’t wait for the Q&A afterward, when I might get the opportunity to actually speak to my old friend. I hope you’ll join us!
