    I was surprised a the name of her show. I thought it was going to be called something different. I actually do have last Sunday's show taped, so I'll be watching it today.

    Everyone was surprised at the name of her show, as it wasn't what was originally discussed.
    FN has the last word on this, though,and I guess they figured that name / format would work best. They seem to do that whenever they premiere a new FN star.

    I finally remembered that I had taped her first show and watched it last night.
    I think she did fine and will continue to improve her hosting ability over time. All of them improve as they get more comfortable.
    In the meantime, though, her food continues to amaze me. The potato, bacon and cheese torte looked mouth watering. And the tip about putting the dough on the rolling pin and then laying it in the pie shell was perfect.

    I've done it in a food processor. Frozen chicken cat be cut into smaller pieces and then you can use either a shredding disc or a think slicing disc.

    Whenever I do stir fry w. chicken, I freeze the chicken first. It is then extremely easy to slice by hand. I don't even need to put it in the processor. You could easily shred it this same way.

    I have watched her first two shows and I think she will be really good. I can't wait to try to make the pie crust. I had no idea it could be done so easily!

    It was the ginger! That was the part I liked. The rest was ho-hum. Oh, wait, was there a second show already? My DVR didn't find it.

    I did not like it when she said "mm-mm-mm!" just like Rachel, and later said "notch" like Emeril. She is going to have to get her own schtick and catchphrase
