Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Any mom or dad who spends umpteen hours at the stove cranking out breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the family will appreciate the elevation of the home cook on this show. Given that the non-pros are making dishes they've honed over years, they go on the show with a built-in advantage over the chefs. The result? Rounds frequently go to the non-pro contestants, which is both heartwarming and validating to watch. In one episode, a stay-at-home mom vows to use her winnings to finance a trip back to her family home in Guam. When she wins enough cash to get her family of five to Guam and then some, it'd take a tough home viewer not to shed a tear while watching. This game show is a heck of a lot of fun for viewers who like cooking shows or watching an underdog triumph and a great choice for whole-family viewing.
