The day finally came – the big "Celebrity Burger Battle" I prepared for my entire life!

Ok, that's a slight exaggeration, I prepared for four days but STILL!

It was a great time, and I have to thank, from the bottom of my heart, my friend Mary Alice Demler (WGRZ Channel 2) and Chris Kreiger (WNY Heroes) for agreeing to be my teammates!

We were battling a team of three from the Taste of Buffalo board of directors. I trash-talked them a bit, saying it would obviously be rigged. LOL!

The "Buffalo Bacon Bash Burger" includes a bacon topping and a secret sauce, not so secret because I'm posting it shortly.

And while this is a long video, here's a bit of what went down during the competition...

When all was said and done, our burger WON!

The prize was strictly bragging rights, which we'll happily accept.

Here are some more fun photos!

It was so much fun for this girl who's always wanted her own cooking show! Don't know if we'll be able to top it next year!
