It's an unlikely, but important friendship.

Amy was diagnosed with a serious speech impediment at an early age.

Her mom Leah says other kids shied away from her because they couldn't understand her.

"I was just trying to think of ways to partner with her school with what I could to at home to help her speech and help build her confidence."

Leah found that getting Amy in the kitchen was the answer.

What started as a hobby, soon blossomed into so much more.

"We came up with the idea to start recording her." says Leah. "So I started to record her and I would chop it up and made it into little cooking videos, and post them on outlets like Facebook and YouTube, and it kind of took off from that." In her latest episode, Amy teaches the St. Xavier High School offensive lineman and Ohio State commit how to bake football brownies.

"She is a wonderful person." says Paris. "She's very funny and very intelligent. She taught me a lot of stuff about the kitchen."

While Amy says Paris is still a work in progress in the kitchen, it's their unique friendship that's the true icing on the cake. "It's so special to me." says Leah. "She can brag about PJ (Paris) now. I have this friend, and he's so big and he plays football. And so while she was teaching him in the kitchen, when she went to his game to cheer him on, she was learning about football."
