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.
Our friends at Alessi also sent Carol home with a gift basket of goodies.
