The television host seriously impressed fans when she announced she has a new cooking show, Starting From Scratch, "for people who don't know how to cook." And while she may not be wowing fans with her cooking skills, they are sure appreciating her candid admission about the fact that she is definitely lacking in that department.

What's more, the special reason she is overcoming her lackluster cooking skills makes the attempt all the more special.

In one of her first segments, SuperChef Darnell Ferguson taught Savannah how to make breakfast. They cooked omelettes, candied bacon, and pancakes, which the star surprisingly most struggled with, as Darnell urged her not to smash the pancakes, which she confessed she liked to do.

The mother-of-two persisted, expertly flipping the pancakes and even later on taking on Today's cooking segment all by herself as she taught her co-stars what she learned.

Upon seeing the video of her improving her cooking skills, one fan endearingly noted that: "She has said on numerous occasions that her cooking skills are non-existent and this has meant a lot to her to be able to cook for her kids and family and she put herself out there to learn and as basic as these things seem for some people it isn't easy. Good for her for challenging herself!"
