Ally Phillips (a.k.a. “Mama Ally”) On Working With GE Appliances, Upcoming Projects & More

Nanas, Mimis, Grandmas – whatever the title, today’s family matriarch is on the move, thinking younger and healthier than ever before. Even when it comes to those great comfort foods the family adores, today’s grandma is looking for ways to deliver the love without the lard. Ally Phillips (a.k.a. “Mama Ally”) is a mother of five and grandmother of eight. A memorable contestant on season 2 of The Master Chef, a blogger and a cookbook author, Phillips was crowned “the Great American Grandma” by GE Appliances in 2019 because of her style, panache and passion for life and family.

On National Greasy Foods Day — October 25, 2019 — I had the pleasure of speaking with Mama Ally herself about her work with GE Appliances, her inspiring career change, upcoming projects, and more. Our full chat is embedded below via YouTube for your viewing pleasure.
