#TobyTalks to New York Times Food Columnist and Author Melissa Clark for Holiday Week Meal + Dessert Ideas (12/20)

#TobyTalks to New York Times Food Columnist and Author Melissa Clark for Holiday Week Meal + Dessert Ideas. With Christmas and the Festive Season in full swing, and while knowing he's hosting his daughter, a guest and his significant other, iHeartRadio's Toby Knapp turned to one of his regular "food geniuses" - New York Times Food Columnist and Author Melissa Clark for some ideas on what to make which would satisfy his daughter's picky appetite, desserts which will be easy to make at the AirBNB where they're spending the holiday and more. Also, since Toby had been recovering from COVID-19, he asked her for some recipes for comfort foods and soups which can help not just with COVID, but also with the FLU and RSV and other 'things' which are going around. This is the full interview you may have heard on stations across our iHeartNation this week. (12/20)


This morning, I woke up to #RSV being one of the top trending topics across our iHeartNation and even now, as I write this, it's still one of the top trending topics - and concerns - for people from coast to coast. That's when I decided to reach out to The Pediatrician Mom on Instagram to ask her if she'd give us a few minutes to talk about RSV, how concerned we need to be about this AND while we're at it, let's get her take, as a MOM and DOCTOR about the state of COVID right now, the coming FLU season and what we should do - and not do - when it comes to consulting the notorious DOC GOOGLE about these things. She's open to your questions via DM on Insta (@thepediatricianmom) and on her website > < so feel free to ask her whatever concerns you!
