Next Food Network Star

Congratulations to Melissa! Photo Credit: Food Network
I was thrilled last night to see Melissa win the competition! I really like Jeffrey too, and I really hope that he gets a show too! Unlike last year, when I felt as though the producers were trying to fill a void in their programming, (I stick to my opinion that Lisa Garza would have had a fantastic show!) I do think that Melissa and Jeffrey were the best two competitors this season. In fact, B and I had Jeffrey pegged from the first episode! This season was really full of talent, more so than the previous two seasons. I loved Michael, and I hope that he tries out for Top Chef! He'd be perfect for that show.

In other cooking news, B had requested I make pasta with "red" sauce. So I made a nice (I sound like my grandma she says everything is "nice") homemade pasta sauce using some fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, and lots of garlic and onion. He loved it! I am so proud.

Tomorrow we're doing something super cool! But you'll have to wait to hear all about it!

I was really excited Melissa won as well, but I wish they had kept the theme "survival guide" as opposed to $10 dinners. That sounds very Sandra Lee to me! Oh well, I think she'll be great either way and I will be watching her on Sunday :)

Loved Jeffrey and I hope he gets his own show.

I just loved her! She was so down to earth and you really get the feeling that this opportunity won't go to her head

I have to admit I liked Jeffrey a little bit more, but I loved the idea of Melissa's concept for a show. She'll do fabulously!
