    Thanks for messing up my perfect Saturday line up, replacing Paula with Ina!! I never watch her, can't relate to her cooking style. I think your network started the mudslide against Paula. The money she made for you guys and the TV chefs she had on her show to introduce them to the viewers, Rea Drummon, The Neely's, Trisha Yearwood. Foodnetwork family my ear!

  2. Mark says:

    Glad that more people are finding out about Ree Drummond. Her food must satisfy working cowboys and be kid approved. It is and she's down to earth.
