      Yes, that is correct. Get your DVR ready!

    2. LOL I just posted in the other Ina thread saying we probably wouldn't see episodes until January.

      Yay Yay Yay!

      1. well I for one am thrilled.
        love Ina.
        we need new recipes from her.
        I'll DVR her for sure, thanks for sharing

          Great news for you Ina fans. For the rest of us? Ugh. Just another show to have to skip over. Frankly, even Ina seems bored with her shows as far as cooking goes now. They've just become a way to showcase her wealth. And I really feel sorry for poor Jeffrey.

        2. This is great news though I'm betting they won't air the new show on Food Network Canada... : - (. for at least a year. I wonder if the show will feature recipes from her new cookbook.

            Hey, guys. I'm the OP and this was posted in 2008! Ina was removed from my DVR a long time ago, as she's clearly run out of ideas.

          2. YEP! I just discovered no new episodes are listed on my DVR search either :(
            and BTW breezychow, why don't you like her show?
            I don't care about her wealth I like her for
            her methods and viewing pleasure.
            My husband more agrees with you however.
            He's done with watching her (you fill in the blank)
            friends and about feeling sorry for Geoffrey, he has a suspicion there too.
            I think they're both where they want to be and are comfortable and happy.
            For them it's whatever works, same as for anyone.
            Just my opinion.

              i don't really think about them, my focus is on the recipes. I frequently FF through the shopping trips and table decorating and such.

              I like the way she flavors her recipes. I rarely am disappointed in the amount of an herb or ingredient in a recipe. I will somethings think, "2/3 cup of fresh mint? really?" but it's usually perfect.

              I am concerned about her new book. I feel like it's going to be disappointing, re-runs and very Semi-Homemade-ish. I hope I'm wrong but the preview in LHJ wasn't looking promising.

                There is a new ep this Saturday (at least in CA), about chocolate.

                1. re: BubblyOne

                  I do see it on my dvr but am curious if it's a really new show or a new repeat.
                  I've seen her do a show on chocolate before.
                  There was a chocolate cake thing with white hot chocolate for her guy friends.
                  Seems it was same episode but we'll see as it says first aired: 10/23/10 so?
                  thanks for the reminder

                  1. re: iL Divo

                    LOL, what is a "new repeat"? I'm pretty sure it is new.

                    1. re: BubblyOne

                      Yes, those show up frequently on my DVR. The episode will show up as "New" and it's an episode from 5 years ago. Hate that.

                      1. re: FoodChic

                        I'm guessing with her new book and book tour, it was coordinated with a new season of shows. I must have a lucky DVR- I set it to record first run only and never get a "new repeat".

                        1. re: BubblyOne

                          I'm first run as well...the damn things still show up as new.

                      2. re: BubblyOne

                        My dvr (If you click the info button) says when it was first shown/aired.
                        BUT they have shown repeats if previous shows (not BC that I know of specifically) but others like 48 hrs or I.D. that I've already seen so who knows. That's why I said that tho.
