My best friend Jenny and I love to watch the Food Network. One of our favorite texts to send is informing each other that Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa) just made a classic fake phone call to set up an exquisite dinner party on her patio in The Hamptons. For some reason, we think the fake phone calls are so fun!
Jenny texted me a few days after we both realized how much we loved Ina Garten, and asked me what I was up to. I told her that I was clipping coupons for some food to use on dinner that night and planned to go and redeem them and get back to the kitchen. A few minutes later, she texted me with the most wonderful idea of a Food Network show. Cook with Coupons: Because full flavor should never be full price. I would clip coupons, Blake or I would cook and we would call Jenny over to eat with us. The perfect recipe to the perfect show.
When I saw that The Next Food Network Star was accepting audition videos for season 7, I went for it and auditioned. Wish me luck! I hope they will pick me!
