Eric Ricupero (Quincy, Massachusetts)

Georgann Coleman (Chicago)

Married with a 2-year-old daughter, Georgann, 38, a speech pathologist, desperately wants to learn how to prepare nutritious meals for her family. Her inability to do anything in the kitchen has become a major bone of contention in her relationship, and she wants to lay it to rest.
