Food Network: Guy's Grocery Games 2013 Season 1, Episode 9 "It's Egg-cellent"

What a crazy and fun experience to race through the aisles of a mock grocery store while preparing a dish under the pressure of time and cameras that sometimes get too close for comfort.  I lost in the first round, sigh, but I'm still friends with my competitors and they are absolutely incredible people, so it was an honor, privilege, and great learning experience.
