Recipe to Riches

13 Sep

Good afternoon everyone! I hope everyone is having a fabulous day!

I had a pretty great day yesterday because I woke up to find out that the news was finally out!

Yes, it’s true. I am going to be on Recipe to Riches Season 2!

Hey, that rhymed.


It was nice to finally be able to breathe a sigh of relief and I could stop keeping such a big secret. I wish I had a dollar for all those times that people asked me “how did that recipe to riches thing go?” or “Hey, are you going to be on that show?”

To which I would have to lie and say “no, I didn’t make it”

Sorry to everyone I had to lie to! But it was just a wee little white lie and now you all know the truth!

Since people have been asking, I’m just going to quickly go over my journey with Recipe to Riches up until today.

Back at the beginning of  September I saw an ad on Facebook for auditions in Vancouver and I applied just under the wire, I think it was the day before the applications actually closed. Then I got an email back that I was in and I had a set audition time. I was sooo excited. Until I found out my audition was at 8am downtown Vancouver the morning after my BFF Tascha’s big birthday bash.

Tascha was super sweet and she agreed to come with me for moral support and because Mr. Delish had to work and my parents were in Mexico. So I went home after work on Friday, made my recipe to take the next morning, and then went and partied my little heart out for Tascha’s birthday. Then I picked her up at about 6am, sorry again Tasch.

When we got to the auditions there was a lot of waiting, move to a room and wait, then move to another room and wait. All the waiting made me even more nervous. Luckily Mr. Delish is super cute and he sent me these photos to make me feel better:

He sent me good luck wishes from all the animals. Made me laugh and cry at the same time!

Meanwhile, Tascha was hanging out in family and friends waiting room, and she got her picture taken and now shes a big star on the Recipe to Riches twitter page!! They made a photo with her in it their Twitter background. If you wanna look she is the one with the long dark hair on the left, and shes mid clap! haha.

She hates it and I love it!!

Finally I got through the waiting process and I was in front of the judges! They loved my recipe and I got my Golden Ticket!!

“Violet, you’re turning violet, Violet!”


I was sooooo excited. See me?

Just joking, I was really excited.

And now it’s all happening! It’s pretty exciting!

Except I’m not excited for all of Canada to see my goofball self on TV.

Goofball or not, I need your support!

      Looks a lot like the Milestones dessert. Is that where you got your inspiration?

        I had tried things like it at a few different restaurants but yes I had tried the one at Milestones! I just found it too boozy tasting :)

    OMG, your blog is absolutely awesome and have read every post. I love your style of writing as your words flow from the heart and certainly portrays the real you, as I saw during RtoR.

    I’m a foodie and well, your blog is one that I’ve bookmarked and will visit regularly…

      Aww thank you so much Kathy! I really appreciate your sweet comments! I was able to remove your surname from your comment for you too.

    whups, are you able to remove my surname from my previous comment? I didn’t intend to make it public since it isn’t my nature to post comments on anyone’s blog, however, if you can’t, not a big deal. I am proud of what you accomplished, so keep up the great work.
