Time for a change — food should be fun and enjoyable, involving friends and family. I am pleased that Snoop and I will be able to bring our various styles of cooking to a broader audience.” stated Martha Stewart.
Added Snoop Dogg: "That's right, me and my homegirl Martha will be back for another season and we can't wait. Thanks to all the fans who tuned in to Season 1. If y'all thought this season was fun, wait till you see what we have cookin' up next for ya.”
