WOW…hard to believe we are going into year 6 of The VeryVera Show. Small things really do matter:

  • I still have the same apron I’ve been wearing since Day 1 and it looks great! (HINT – I don’t put it in the dryer and I iron it, too)
  • I have quit with the fake eyelashes, but I try to eat more carrots!
  • I still say, “No matter what you do, do it in good taste” when I close the show each week

In looking back over the last 5 years, these would be my favorite moments from each Season:

EPISODE 1 of Season 1 with Ann Boardman.  Truly, she is one of my all-time favorite people, huge supporter of any project I have ever tackled and has been a cheerleader to me along the way.  We did a recipe I made for years for her when she entertained, Deviled Shrimp.

EPISODE 18 of Season 2 with my granddaughter Bentley Boyd from Mt. Pleasant. Her birthday is on the 28th of October, so we did a Halloween-themed show complete with darkness, scary noises, and dry ice. She dressed in her 50’s Halloween costume.

EPISODE 9 of Season 3 I did a trio of pies. I had so many people comment on that episode as I think folks just LOVE pies, in general. The recipes were great and my comfort level showed in my performance.

EPISODE 8 of Season 4 was all of my younger grandchildren in the Fairy Garden all dressed up and we did a tea party. At the time, there were 3 and now there are 5. Do I hear Sequel??

EPISODE 28 of Season 5 brought my niece, Anna Beck Chapman, in from Nashville to showcase her ABC Bakery cookie business and talk about her new baby that would be coming soon. Our chemistry was over the top, and it brought back memories of her visits in the summer as a child to my VeryVera Bakery.

Season 6 will introduce lots of new guests, a NEW style for Vera’s Corner, a NEW introductory segment giving an overall view of the show before we get started, and finally LOTS of great give-a-ways as well as NEW markets where the show will air!

I’m glad to be back and can’t wait to bring some new recipes and energy to the kitchen.
