This just in… I’m thrilled to welcome another guest chef into my kitchen today!

Michelle Esteban is an incredibly talented news anchor/reporter – often referred to as one of the pit bulls at our station for her investigative work. She’s also a compassionate anchor/reporter, someone you want on your side when a difficult or tragic story has to be told. More than that, she’s become a treasured friend and colleague to me.

I first discovered Michelle’s love for cooking through her KOMO FACEBOOK FAN PAGE where gourmet, homemade creations often make it onto her My Favorite Things, or MFT, list each Friday! Mouthwatering pictures included:
