A Throw Back….

Leave Comments   |   Filed under: Cooking With The Pros


In the summer of 2012, with help from three of my girlfriends, I catered the coaches meal at the Shawn Springs Football Camp in Ashburn, Virginia. We had a fabulous time together and whipped up some delicious food for the guests. While at the camp, I had the opportunity to meet Shawn and we became friends. Shawn an Ohio State graduate (he’s still a nice guy) played 13 years in the NFL. Shawn started his career with Seattle, then Washington, and rounded out his playing time with the Patriots.  After getting to know me,  Shawn begged to be a guest on my show. After several harassing phone calls from Shawn, I finally agreed to feature him as a guest.  A few weeks later,  Shawn joined me in the kitchen to pull together a game day meal. This show also features my close friend and Redskin fan “Dr. Craig”. Just watch the show and see how impressed Shawn is with my skills in the kitchen.

The day we taped, Shawn had the nerve to show up in his Ohio State colors on my PSU set!! He said it wasn’t intentional. 

If I have to come clean, we laughed the entire time and had a blast…..

This was the show I realized I needed Dr. Craig services….this was the day Craig was dubbed “sous chef”

Craig’s life hasn’t been the same since then….
