Filming at Paradise Springs Winery

We couldn’t have asked for a better day to head to Paradise Springs Winery. The weather was magnificent! I met my producer Jason Gittlen and intern Hillary on the grounds where we geared up to shoot a 30 minute Nonstop Scene DC Show. We walked the viewer through everything from the history of the place (It was built in the late 1700’s!) to the vineyard to production.
Extra sweet– a visit from my co-anchor Richard and weekend producer Charlitta! It was indeed a great day filled with fine wine and good friends. Tune in to our first show Monday November 19th at 10PM. Watch NBC Washington NonStop on Comcast 208,VZ FIOS 460 or COX 803.

Learning how to crack crabs

It’s a shame.

I call this place home and I still don’t know how to crack a Maryland crab. In fact, it’s why I won’t order them or lobster.. unless they are pre-cracked. It’s not because I’m lazy… it’s because it’s intimidating.

Fear no more… Chef John Shields of PBS Food’s Coastal Cooking give me a lesson in Crab cracking 101 at Wildfire Restaurant!

RECIPE: Maryland Crabcakes

For recipes check out John’s website. If you have a good one or any tips to the tricky business of cracking crabs.. please feel free to share!

Trinka Margua Simon uses donated house paint to create a mural that will be washed away at the end of the show.

Because the Crystal City building hosting Artomatic is set for demolition this summer… the owners have allowed the artist to take off all the doors. This bar table (yes there are happy hours at Artomatic) is one way they made creative use of the wood.
