On the menu: Hickory and Gorgonzola Popcorn, easy handmade Wild Mushroom and Cheddar Pork Sausages and no one can resist their Homemade Candy Bars With Chunks of Cookies and Caramel.

She pulls into the lead with a refreshing Mint Julep and it's an easy win with her spectacular Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie. Damaris gives you all the tips and tricks you will need to make your Derby party a photo finish!

  • Damaris's niece and friends are visiting, so she whips up foods that kids love with sneaky tricks to get them to eat their veggies.
