Easy Peasy?
Sweet Second Chance!
Four women compete for the $10,000 prize. Wait until they see the outrageous ingredients in the first basket! Then in the entrée round, will there be a party on the plates when the chefs must cook with sherry? In a very competitive dessert round, the two lady finalists get a pre-made dough and a canned vegetable, and the judges challenge them to stand tall at the Chopping Block.
