Guess what?! You guys get to cook with me this weekend on the new @foodnetworkkitchen app! For those who aren't familiar… @FoodNetwork recently launched a new app called "Food Network Kitchen,” where you can cook LIVE along with your favorite chefs. Ingredient lists are posted ahead of time so you can do all of your grocery shopping and there's even a Q&A button to ask questions and possibly get your question answered live by me! (And then the classes are also available on demand later if you can't do the live class.) It’s a subscription based app, BUT your first month is free! And whether you tune in live, or on demand, for the whole thing, or just for a short period of time…. be sure to give thumbs up when exiting the class if you enjoyed the experience. My schedule: 12/28 at 9am ET – Eggs in Cocotte with Crab (great for hosting a brunch) 12/28 at 1pm ET– Cashew Chicken with Cauliflower Rice (great for Whole30 or Healthy January recipes) 12/29 at 11am ET– Spanakopita Cups (great game day or NYE appetizers) 12/29 at 4pm ET – Winter Citrus Salsa with Pistachio Crusted White Fish (also a great recipe for Healthy January) ?: @jaharoni

Early Life, Education, and Career
Jaymee grew up in Great Falls and was raised by her parents. At a young age, she developed a strong passion for food, and wanted to pursue a career on television. After matriculating from high school, she enrolled into the Edward R. Murrow School of Communication at Washington State University.
The school is named after a famous alumni who gained prominence on radio during World War II, and has over 500 students enrolled annually.
During her time there, she experienced working as a news anchor and reporter for the university television station WSU Cable 8. After graduating in 2002, she began her career with the CBS affiliate station KRTV in Great Falls, working as a news reporter and sports anchor. After three years, she moved to another affiliate in KFMB-TV, which is located in San Diego, California.
As a part of her work there, she was a sideline reporter during the pre-season games of the professional American Football team, the San Diego Chargers.
Sports Broadcasting and ESPN
In 2008, Sire joined Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, which operates in the San Francisco Bay Area, and is a sister station to NBC Sports California. She became an anchor and reporter for the station, working primarily on the program “SportsNet Central”. She also did reports for the New York Giants, working on “Giants Pre-Game Live” and “Giants Post Game Live”.
She also covered sports teams from the area such as basketball’s Golden State Warriors, and San Jose Sharks ice hockey team. In 2011, she helped produce the special “A Day in the Life: Tim Lincecum” which she also hosted. She stayed with the station for the next five years.
Jaymee eventually left her position as she was offered a better contract with a more prestigious company – ESPN.
In 2013, she made her debut as an anchor of ESPNews in the program “Highlight Express”, then became a part of ESPN’s flagship program “SportsCenter” and helped with establishing the morning installment of the show called “SportsCenter: AM” which aired on weekdays.

Move to the Food Network
In 2017, Jaymee was one of the 100 employees listed to be cut from ESPN as part of budget savings within the year. After she was removed, she decided to pursue her love for food and cooking, and started a frequent collaboration with the Food Network, based in New York City though it has locations around the country. Her first appearance for the network was in an episode of “Beat Bobby Flay” during its 12th season, which features chefs battling in competition with Bobby Flay of “Iron Chef” popularity.
