“Well that happened! It was a fun season,” wrote Ana Quincoces on Facebook, about her stint on “The Next Food Network Star.”

“We had a much better time than you all had the opportunity to see. Every single person there is talented and dedicated to their craft and it was a privilege to compete alongside them. Thank you all for watching!”

On Sunday night Tregaye Fraser of Atlanta was crowned the season 12 winner of the Food Network competition.

Quincoces has great memories.

“Life is all about experiences and this one will definitely remind me of how fearless (or naive) I can be when I think I can do anything,” said the marinade mogul.
