A girl who exchanged a Bat Mitzvah present for one of Rachael's knives gets a big surprise. Sukiyaki Stir-Fry is what's for dinner.


  1. Saw Tuesday's show. How delightful. The single guy turned single dad was very deserving and he has a tough job to do. The 30MM feature was fascinating, albeit short(standard for RR, I guess). I can hardly wait to see if Deborah Norville can get RR to bake successfully(Lord knows, Paula Deen tried).

  2. I am so behind on TiVo! Darn Thanksgiving got me all off track!
