Chopped Podcast Episode 63: FriChats - Having Someone In Your Corner

We’re so excited to announce to you today…FriChats! This idea came about when Cara Ansis (see link below) and I were talking recently. We’ve received such positive feedback from the two episodes where Cara was a guest on the show, that we agreed to make it a regular gig.

So, each Friday we’ll be sharing FriChats, all on different themes related to Food Blogs, Creative Entrepreneurs, and more.

I know what you’re thinking.


Marly and Cara are talking about having someone in your corner so you can get out there and be your best you!

Here are some of our favorite quotes from today’s episode:
