What to Watch: Southern Breakfasts, Baby Showers, Cooking With Moms and ICA Tournament

This weekend on Food Network it's all about having fun in the kitchen with dear friends and moms.

Start off your Saturday morning with a big breakfast, Southern style, from Paula Deen, Rosanne Cash and her daughter. Afterward, Giada's hosting a special baby shower for her friend who's expecting twins. Then on Sunday morning, Guy's cooking up a meal with his mom; they're making pork roast with beans and rice, a childhood favorite. And on Sandwich King, Jeff is learning the secrets to baking biscuits from his mother-in-law.

On Sunday evening, watch a poker-themed episode of Cupcake Wars with special guest judge Mimi Rogers. Finally, it's Round 2 of the ICA tournament as Iron Chefs Jose Garces and Marc Forgione face off in Kitchen Stadium.

Paula has invited mother and daughter team Rosanne Cash and Carrie Crowell to join her in the kitchen to make breakfast favorites. They're starting the day with Cheesy Maple Pork Breakfast Casserole and then Carrie shares one of her favorite breakfast recipes — Grit Cakes With Mom's White Gravy. Next they make savory Geriatric Salad. And finally, the ladies end it on a sweet note with a Fresh Fruit Salad With Lemon-Poppy Seed Dressing.
