On WHIP IT UP! WITH WENDY! celebrity-chef and lifestyle-guru Wendy G. inspires audiences to take on the world one dish at a time. No matter what obstacles lie ahead, Wendy will make your worries melt away, like melted butter dripping off a perfectly crisp piece of bacon! (Remember bacon?). When the show starts to experience some hiccups, there’s more melting down than melting away, but EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE TOTALLY FINE.
