    This show is actually entertaining. My only criticism is that it makes you want to bake immediately. The cookie episode was particularly torturing. The cookies looked so good. Foxworthy is a good host and the two judges are personable and seem fair. A nice hour for a summer’s entertainment.

    @Cath, I totally agree!! This is a fun show to watch and it makes me want to go out and get cake, cookies and pie after watching them fix it on this show. LOL

    I just started watching this show and I really like it! I love watching the contestants bake and sweat over details. I love the three tasks they’re assigned. The contestants and the judges and host (Jeff Foxworthy is very funny) are all very likable……they are not the bitchy, shallow, cynical snobs we’re sadly used to seeing on TV nowadays. This is a very good show the whole family can watch together, such a rarity in TV nowadays.

    Out of all the cooking shows on TV this has absolutely been my favorite! I hope they continue and it’s not just a summer series!
