This Saturday on Food Network, join the cast of The Kitchen as they surprise their co-host Marcela Valladolid with a baby shower and share helpful party-hosting tips for all kinds of festivities. On Sunday, Nancy Fuller is traveling back in time to rediscover her family history through her rulebook on Farmhouse Rules. Watch as she shares stories with her grandchildren and  cooks up a traditional family dinner starting with a ham souffle, baked beans and French pickles and finishing off with sweet molasses cookies with a marshmallow frosting.

On Sunday night, don’t miss out on all the fun — stay tuned to catch the competition lineup starting with Guy’s Grocery Games at 8|7c. Then, on a new episode of All-Star Academy, the pressure is on for the remaining eight home cooks as they cook to impress their guest judge, Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian. And finally, stick around to see what tricks Alton has up his sleeve for the contenders on Cutthroat Kitchen.

Marcela Valladolid's co-hosts throw a surprise baby shower for her on this episode of The Kitchen! They share their tips for hosting all kinds of special family celebrations, and Marcela makes a perfect party main dish with her puff pastry-wrapped salmon. The co-hosts put together creative new ideas for DIY hostess gifts, and Katie Lee and Sunny Anderson have two delicious and timesaving rice side dishes. The gang shares their finger-food appetizer favorites, and Katie creates a beautiful party-worthy croquembouche. Everyone toasts Marcela with a virgin Cucumber Ginger Fizz and surprises her with a fun shower present!
