Well, the judges have spoken and I have not been chosen as one of the Real Women of Philadelphia finalists. Though I do not agree with many of their choices for the finalists, or their decision not to pick me; I must say that the experience has been amazing. I just loved being able to 'host' cooking segments in my own kitchen. I mean who doesn't pretend to have their own cooking show, while making dinner?? This gave me the opportunity to fulfil one of my fantasies, LOL. For a look at all the videos I submitted click HERE
It has also given me the opportunity to re discover just who Cindy was. For years, I've lost myself in being Hun, or Mommy and was starting to forget who Cindy was. What excited me, other than watching and helping my children grow and strenghtening my relationship with Hubby. This contest let me rekindle my passion for cooking and creating new and exciting recipes.
Here is a list of the finalists, linking to their winning videos.
On a side note, I did win a ticket, to attend an event during cook-off week and will be able to meet some of the wonderful ladies that I've become so close with, during this journey. Though I am disheartened by the loss of the competition, the chance of meeting such amazing, supportive, talented and fun ladies brings a smile to my face. So, keep an eye out for my post about our Real Women of Philly soiree!!!
