"The Next Food Network Star" auditions

Today my daughter Brooke did a taping for "The Next Food Network Star" show. She was on her A-game yesterday and had all the other contestants laughing. She got a call back for today and had to bring a dish and demonstrate a cooking skill. I can't tell you how proud I am of her. Not only is She a fabulous cook, but she has this great personality. She is kind and is always thinking of others. We made posters and the "Food Network" people taped all of us cheering Brooke on. Here we are waiting for Brooke in the lobby of the hotel.
Brooke now has to make a tape demonstrating 5 recipes. Then it will be up to the casting people. So who knows, if it is in the stars, my daughter could be "The Next Food Network Star"!

I've heard about this through several different people but am so happy to finally read a first-hand report. I simply can't imagine her not being chosen. Go Brooke!
