Alessi presents 'In The Kitchen': Vicki Reece

In our "In the Kitchen" segments, we challenge cooks of all walks of life to create a dish using the ingredients we give them. We unveil which ingredients they use at the top of the show and they have to create a dish by the time we get to their segment.

Wednesday's "In the Kitchen" contestant was Vicki Reece! She's the powerhouse behind the wildly popular "Joy of Mom" website.

We set out Alessi products that must be used, one protein and some kitchen staples - then Carol worked her magic.
