At the TV Studio…

Everyone with a DSLR camera, get ready to be jealous…

On Tuesday night, I was invited into the News 8 studio to watch as they filmed. I loved it! I got to meet the incredibly gracious news crew and get a behind-the-scenes view of what goes on during a live broadcast.

Then, when my story came on the tv, it was surreal. Shelly Slater, the news anchor, had asked me to bring another cookie pie to the set, and–unbeknownst to me–they did a live taste-test in the middle of the show. Shelly set out two desserts and didn’t tell the other newscasters which one was the healthier one. She asked them to pick their favorite… and they both picked the deep-dish cookie pie!

If you’re new to my blog, the recipe can be found here:

And this is what they did on the commercial break:

No one ever did finish that other cake… Winking smile

    Awwh! Congrats:) You did such a good job:) I absoultley love your recipes and your blog! I also am a vegan, and you post so many different opitions! I can’t wait to try this:) Im thinking of making it for valentines day and also on a random note… have you tried almond coccunut milk? The unsweetened kind is what i use(45 cal) and nutriton very simular to unsweeted almond Ive already used it in a few of your recipes and I thought it was really good specially ones that call for coccunut butter or extract! So just suggesting it if you want to try it some time(: Much love and good luck!

    I’m really glad you posted this. I tried to rush home to see this live on the Dallas news but missed it. I have sent the link out to two friends already because it is hard to convince people that cookies with beans (or mousse with tofu) can be this good. They had to see it to believe it!

    Katie, you did awesome! I tried the deep dish chocolate chip cookie as dessert for Valentine’s Day. My husband asked, before he tried it, “is this a healthy dessert?”. He knew I had been trying some of your recipes, so he was skeptical. Then he asked for seconds! I never did tell him about the beans though, just the oatmeal…lol. Anyway, plan to try many more of your recipes (the breakfast oatmeal pudding is my new fav btw). Keep up the good work! Even us non-vegans want to eat healthy, but hate giving up dessert!
