Hi, everyone! I can't believe almost four years have passed since I won the very first "Hey, Can You Cook?!" challenge! Since that day, I've been very fortunate to continue my love of cooking with many projects: I've co-hosted a cooking show with Stefanie Paganini called "Dinner and Drinks," and I'm also the emcee for Taste of Cleveland, The Fabulous Food Show and International Beer Fest, which has given me the opportunity to work with many well-known and respected chefs. And you can keep up with my passion for food on my website, JennCanCook.com.
I still live in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio with my husband Matt and our fabulous dog Bill Billson. I know they'll be rooting for me as I compete in "Hey, Can You Cook?! All-Stars!"
Hi, everyone! Angie Shaghaghi here, back after over three years since Rachael Ray asked the question that would change my life forever, "Hey, Can You Cook?!" The result was an overwhelming homecoming filled with a morning show appearance, a host of charity events and the cover of a local magazine! I jumped head first into my business, Creative Cooks, a cooking program for kids. I truly love cooking, and cooking in front of an audience seemed like second nature to me. So in 2009, I found myself on the "Chopping Block," literally, with an appearance on Food Network’s Chopped!
In addition to cooking, my pride and joy come from the connections that I make in schools, churches and senior centers weekly. I once read a quote that said, "Never give up on something you think about daily." So today, here I still stand, doing what I cannot stop thinking about: Cooking! Oh, and a HUGE thank you to my girlfriends for taking care of my three kids so I could go chase my dream ... YOU are like family to me!
Since I was the runner-up in "Hey, Can You Cook?! 4" in 2009, I have published a cookbook, "Donna's Dishes: Cooking for a Cure." The book contains 150 recipes that are quick and easy to follow, family friendly, and easy on your budget. I've sold over a thousand copies of the book at $10 a piece, of which 30 percent goes to charities for Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's, Down Syndrome and breast cancer, just to name a few. Any copies sold from this website will go directly to Rachael's Yum-O! organization. I have also appeared on several of our local TV shows, have done cooking demonstrations, competed in a few cook-offs, hosted modeling competitions, and a few talent shows. As you can see, it's been a busy few years!
Today I live in Coventry, Rhode Island (where I was born and raised) with my husband Michael, my daughter Angela and the boys Justin and Gian. We have two dogs Romeo and Bella, and two cats, Juliette and Doc, and a full household of love. I feel blessed to competing in "Hey, Can You Cook?! All-Stars." Rachael and her team are amazing, they are all so hard working and so nice, it's an honor to be part of such a great group of people. Thank you, and from my family to yours, Mangia Bom! ("Eat Well!")
Hey guys, I'm back! After winning "Hey Can You Cook?! 4", I was blessed with some magnificent prizes, but the most important prize was the confidence I gained to pursue a career in food. I obtained my food servers license and since then I've cooked for private events, corporate events, video shoots, and served as a consulting chef for a Caribbean restaurant in New Jersey and a lounge in the Bronx. I am currently the head baker for the famous Mortgage Apple Cakes, and if you've never heard of a mortgage apple cake you'd better go find out what you've been missing!
My goal is to one day open a family style restaurant influenced by the cuisine of my Jamaican upbringing. When I'm not working, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family and friends. I currently reside in New Jersey with my fiancé ... but I’ll always be a Brooklyn girl at heart! I am extremely excited for the opportunity to test my skills once again as part of "Hey, Can You Cook?! All-Stars" and maybe win some fun prizes - wish me luck!
Hello and greetings from the great state of Iowa! Since winning "Hey, Can You Cook?! 3" in 2008, a lot has changed! The following year, I graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in journalism and public relations and landed a full-time position as a food editor for Meredith Integrated Marketing Des Moines. In my opinion, I have the best job around since I get to develop recipes, write about food and oversee food photography every day! And since I can't seem to spend enough time in the kitchen, I started a food blog, Espresso and Cream, where I share the recipes I love to cook at home. It's been a great way for me to meet other people who love to cook and eat as much as I do!
Another big change for me since my appearance on the show - I went from single girl to wife and puppy mommy this past summer! My husband, Joey, and I were married in July, and a few months before that we added a new member to our family, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Nutmeg. Joey and I love to spend our free time working out, trying new restaurants, and traveling as much as possible to see friends and family.
After competing in "Hey, Can You Cook?! 4" in 2009, I headed home (with a bandage on my hand!) to a traumatic time for my family. My father, who had been battling leukemia, passed away. The next few months were spent reflecting on my life; my dad had been my partner in real estate developments, so I took some time to reassess my career and within months decided to pursue my dream of opening a restaurant.
That November, in the height of the recession, I opened Epulo Bistro in Edmonds, Washington along with my crazy business partner Tim Carr and some investors. Epulo is Latin for sumptuous food, banquet or feast - that described exactly what I wanted to create. For the past two years, I have been working hard at the restaurant while still finding time to do commercial real estate during the day. My oldest daughter graduated from Cornell, my second daughter went off to college, and I still have two girls at home! My wife, a teacher, keeps busy during the school year. Our lives have been both exhilarating and exhausting, in equal measure, but I love what I’m doing and am looking forward to competing in "Hey, Can You Cook?! All-Stars"!
