Today's post is written by set stylist Dani Fiore from The Martha Stewart Show:

Some shows develop then change - develop some more and change and change again. It's the nature of live TV! Our Google Cook-off show turned out to be one of those shows.

Totally adorable if I do say so myself!

The 1st Place winner trophy was a Martha Stewart Macy’s colander and a kitchen crock. A prefect fit! We filled the trophy “cup” with a few of Martha’s kitchen “must have’s”.
