Ever since we met the perky blonde on the fourth season of The Next Food Network Star, we've been huge fans of Kelsey Nixon. Thus, we're incredibly excited to announce that the up-and-coming Food Network personality will be guest blogging here on YumSugar!

For the next couple of weeks, Kelsey will be sharing her tips and cooking essentials. She'll give us a behind-the-scenes look at what inspires her and even take us on her Italian vacation. We're thrilled about the partnership and can't wait to read what Kelsey has to say. Be sure to come back tomorrow for her first article.
