This season of Food Network Star is almost over. The fate of three finalists lies in your hands, America! I got to chat with one finalist, Nicole Gaffney.

I am mildly addicted to Food Network Star and this season was full of Louisiana flair. There was "The Butcher Babe" Loreal Gavin from Lafayette. There was Christopher Lynch from New Orleans. And of course, Nicole Gaffney, whose roots lie in New Jesery, but she has plenty of Louisiana flavor to her.

Gaffney spent her college days at Louisiana State University. Although she grew up in the coastal town of the Jersey Shore, she experienced an entirely new coast, the Gulf Coast.

Thus began her love of what she calls, "Coastal Cuisine."

Gaffney is one of three finalists on Season 10 of Food Network Star. Her competition is the Cowboy, Lenny McNab and the Italian, Luca Della Casa. The prize is a show on Food Network. Pilots have been shot and now it is up to America to decide who will win!

Listen to my interview with Gaffney to find out how she would put her own spin on an SBC favorite... crawfish!
