Why did you need or want to be on Worst Cooks in America?
I needed to be on Worst Cooks to be saved from myself and my terrible culinary skills. Up until now, virtually all my cooking stories involve something catching on fire and that totally had to stop.
What was the most valuable tip or piece of advice that you received from your team leader?
Chef Robert gave good advice like, “Relax” — but of course, I am a crazy woman and didn’t.
What did you take away from the experience?
Friendship with some AMAZING people. The cooking is almost secondary to the experience of living and bonding with 15 other people.
