The celebrated cooking show host was born on November 30, 1968, in Cross Lanes, West Virginia, United States. She attended the Ohio University.

She got hooked on the art of cooking from a very young age by watching her mom cook and her dad engage in the garden.

As a child, Lancaster was a picky eater, too. Speaking with KLCS magazine in June 2019, she explained that she used to trouble her mother, removing the green stuff from her food and tomato sauce aside.

"I was an extreme picky eater as a child, I would try to find every spec of green in a recipe, like tomato sauce and I would move it out of the tomato sauce," she said. "So it’s a joke in our house, how I eat now, which is everything."

Her passion for food and cooking led her to embark on a professional career as a cook. She specialized in pastry making in different restaurant kitchens in the South and Northeast.
