I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Alhambra mom's Oprah network show premiers

Kristina Kuzmic-Crocco, a waitress with two children in Alhambra elementary schools, was selected last winter from thousands of contestants for the opportunity to host a cooking show on Oprah’s network. December 3 it will premier.

It's been a long journey for Kuzmic-Crocco from her native war-torn Croatia when she was 15 to being a single mom and on food stamps to remarried living in Alhambra and with her own television series. She told Alhambra Source last January that she was in disbelief about the change of luck.

Last April I started this website, Stickycook.com, as sort of a birthday present to myself. I was waiting tables and I thought this would be a fun hobby since I love cooking and sharing recipes. Then a few weeks later, a random lady e-mailed me, “Hey, Oprah has this contest.” So, I sent in my little audition video and a week later I got my first phone call, which started a long interview process. Things like this just do not happen to me, at all. Nothing like this has ever happened to me. I never thought, “this is going to go big this website.” I literally still cannot believe this.

On Saturday, she will host for the first time a reality show called "The Ambush Cook" where she performs kitchen interventions. "I wouldn't say there's anything in the show that specifically relates to Alhambra," Kuzmic-Crocco wrote in an e-mail, "but there are a lot of things that any family, parents, etc can relate to. My guests range from a moms who have never cooked a homemade meal for their kids and really want to learn to provide good food for their family, to a 'momma's boy,' a grown man who still goes to his mom's house for dinner every night because he doesn't know how to cook, to a single girl to who doesn't cook because she thinks it's just too hard to cook for one person. There's something for everyone, and I'm really hoping the show will empower people to cook!"

The Ambush Cook will premiere with back-to-back episodes Saturday, December 3 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. ET/PT.
