Watched the show last night with initially a little apprehension.... i was pleasantly surprised. Truly enjoyed the the battle in the kitchen. The home home cooks having the advantage of knowing the menu is nice. Those folks can sing. I am opening Marcella's Family Kitchen and I am going to duplicate the sweet potato dumpling recipe. The folks from Louisiana were fun as well and my thought was they would win, because of the "sauce" and the relish and in the potato salad, huh but who am I. Great show looking to watching next week
