From the producers: “The episode featuring Morauski will air Oct. 27 as the season finale for My Family Recipe Rocks. It went fantastic. She was absolutely incredible. She was one of our top shows of the year.”


When I found out Joey Fatone was coming to visit our lil ol’ B&B, I may or may not have bounced up & down on Dotter’s bed and broke it simply to wake her up and tell her the news. Not my brightest moment. I’m sure you can imagine how painful it was to hold the secret in for five months… that is, you know, after I broke beds telling my family.

What do you do when Joey Fatone visits your inn? Well, You introduce him to your favorite wine, make naughty jokes while cooking and ask him to tweet good advice to Dotter (who was up in Canada this week) of course.

The day started when mom & I went to visit the New Day Northwest show. Joey was on that morning so we watched his segment and then scooted out early so I could get home and prep things for the day.

When the team arrived, I realized that this was kinda a big deal.

Best. Make-up. Artist. Ever. She had a magic curling iron. I shall savor this hairdo and not wash my hair for a couple of months. This is me trying to talk only, you know, not move my lips while getting lipsticked.

Jon, the camera man. His hair is his trademark.

Zach, the sound guy. He pretty much had his hands down my blouse all day to fix my mic.

Time to tweet while waiting for set-up? Sure, if I must… all while keeping my secret.

The goats always get a little love from the camera.

That déjà vu knock, knock oh hi we met an hour ago but let’s pretend we’re meeting just now moment.

Joey with son.

Joey taped a couple of Dancing With the Stars spots while he was here so when you see him with the beautiful Northwest trees in the background, be proud, Seattle. Be proud.

It was really hard to say goodbye to Joey and the crew from My Family Recipe Rocks. Also pictured here are my favorite make-up artist ever Jeanne, the show’s amazing producer Jeff and our lighting guy, Shawn. Who knew it took so many people to laugh about naughty things with Joey on TV? Our episode of My Family Recipe Rocks will air, most likely, in October. In the meantime, I have a bed to repair.
