All my friends and family know how much of a junkie I am for cooking shows and spending time cooking in my own kitchen. I watched every episode of The Next Food Network Star when our very own Orchid Paulmeier of Hilton Head Island was a contestant. Recently, our landlord hosted it’s annual Barbecue for it’s tenants in our office complex on Main Street, Hilton Head Island. Southern Barbecue was prepared by One Hot Mama’s, Orchid’s Restaurant . Not only did Tony and I get to meet her, enjoy her cooking, chat about her experience; but I got to take a photo of us together too! Although she did not win, she is a winner in my eyes. To take a quote from another Food Network star….YUMMO!
