Working On My New Logo…..

What Do You Think? 

2013 was certainly a breakout year for “Jen Heasley’s Cooking With The Pros”.  It’s not only all of the great opportunities I’ve had in my travels, but the most important fact;  the show is finally set to air on CBS 21 Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, January 18th at 11:00… YAY!!!!! To say I’m thrilled is an understatement. This will be a two part blog recapping a great year and some amazing guests and food.

So let me run through what has been a fabulous year with some great photos, fabulous interviews, and wonderful guests

Marques Ogden another retired NFL player joined me in the kitchen….I’m not sure he was as confident in the kitchen as Terry, but we had fun 🙂

Terry offering up autographs…..I’m not sure why I wasn’t asked to do a signing….

After a great demonstration at the Wegmans in Hunt Valley, Maryland; I went to one of my favorite events..the Ed Block Awards 

When I do shows and interview, there are always people I just truly enjoy…Adam “Pacman” Jones was one of them. He was a great interview and I learned he loves the kitchen as well. My man does “Daddy Cook Wednesdays” with his children..

After the Ed Block Awards, I decided I needed to push harder with the show.  At this point I reached out to an old college friend Marques Smalls and asked for his help. He is in film. Marques put together my trailer 🙂 

In the summer, I met up with some of my PSU friends and former athletes Wally Richardson and Marissa Hoover in State College. Wally lives there now and we taped some footage at Wally’s house.
