Weekend Cooking: Nailed It! (on Netflix)

Nailed It! on NetflixConfession: I totally stole the idea for this post from my long-time blogging friend Marg from Adventures of an Intrepid Reader. On Facebook this week, she mentioned she had watched a funny new baking series on Netflix, and I knew I had to watch it too.

Nailed It! is hosted by Nicole Byer, with Jacques Torres as star judge. This, however, is not your mother's bake-off show. The premise seems tame enough: three home bakers try to win $10,000 by re-creating beautifully decorated desserts designed by a guest judge. Much hilarity ensues.

If you don't laugh out loud in the first show, you can safely bag the rest; Nailed It! won't be for you. But if you have a good sense of humor, you'll have almost as much fun as the judges and contestants--except you won't have to taste the cakes or get food dye all over your hands and face.

Season 1 consists of 6 half-hour episodes, and I bet you'll end up watching them all in one go, like I did. My husband hates baking contest shows, but he was laughing right along with me. Thank you, Marg, for brightening up my week; I'm passing along the joy.

Here's the trailer for Nailed It!, which really doesn't do the series justice. Just trust me on this one.

This was also sort of the premise to the book "The Art of Baking Blind" by Sarah Vaughan which I really liked, so I guess I am going to have to watch this too - oh wait, I don't have Netflix! But yet another reason to convince my husband we need to subscribe! :--)

I am so glad you enjoyed this series. We just finishec laughing our way through the first series. We really hope there's more

I think I could relate to those home bakers. We'll have to give this a try.

This looks like a hoot! Nicole Byer seems like the perfect host for this.

BTW I pinned most of the books in your last post!

I enjoyed the Cake Boss series, and this one sounds fun. But, we cancelled Netflix.

I keep seeing brief write-ups on this show in different places and it looks like a lot of fun. Glad to see it got your approval--I am adding it to my stack to watch. ;-)

Hi Beth and Weekend Cookers! I'm traveling and have no time to comment on your blogs -- I'm trying to post just a bit about our adventures birding in Israel. I hope you enjoy a good weekend of cooking!
