Patricia Heaton stopped by to talk about her hit ABC show The Middle, but also her new cooking show, Patricia Heaton Parties on Food Network, and reveals that she finds the cooking show to be harder!

This job [you do] is really hard,” Patricia tells Rach. “I was never so exhausted until I finished those cooking shows.”

She explains, “I’m used to working with a script and I memorize my lines and then I say them. … To talk about food and to ‘cook out loud,’ I mean it was hard! But it was really fun.”

They also talked about their holiday plans, and both Rach and Patricia reveal whether they’re rather be somewhere cold and snowy at Christmas, or sitting on a beach. Watch below for their responses!
