This Home Cook is the 2017 Bacon World Champion!! 

I’m so blessed to take home top honors at the 2017 World Food Championships held in Orange Beach, Al November 8-12. I beat out professional chefs and some very seasoned home cooks with my Dutch Crunch Baby Pancakes and won $10 thousand dollars in cash and prizes.  Stay tuned for the Final Table, April 2018 where I will battle it out to win 100 Grand.

Thank you Team Saucy Mama for believing in me and being the best sponsor in the world!!
