Join Ree Drummond, Rev Run and Kelis Rogers as they Deck the Halls for the Holidays

NEW YORK - November 11, 2014 - 'Tis the season for holiday parties, and it is an open invitation to The Pioneer Woman Cowboy Christmas on Saturday, December 6th at 8pm on Food Network. Ree Drummond is throwing a holiday party for local ranchers and their families. The menu is a fabulous seasonal spread, starring Sirloin Christmas Kebobs with Bell Peppers, Christmas Ham, Creamy Rosemary Potatoes, Bacon Green Bean Bundles and Cowboy Santa Cookies with salads and desserts, courtesy of the guests. This dinner and dance celebration is complete with gifts under a glorious Christmas tree, a roping contest with western-themed prizes, and a live band to get the party started. It is frontier-festive all the way!

Then, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas as Food Network gets massively merry on Saturday, December 6th at 9pm with the premiere of Outrageous Christmas. From the world's largest gingerbread village to a 1,000-pound chocolate Santa sculpture to an eight-foot-tall handmade candy canes, along with a life-size Christmas tree cake; these holiday creations are sure to make jaws drop. There is no doubt that bigger is always better, especially for the holidays.

No one does the holidays as big as superstar musician Kelis Rogers and her family. She is giving Cooking Channel viewers a taste of the holidays in Hollywood in Holiday Feast with Kelis, premiering Sunday, December 7th at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT. Follow Kelis as she hosts a festive holiday dinner for her friends and family. First, she stops by her favorite Los Angeles markets to pick up all the ingredients for her holiday menu, sharing her shopping secrets for finding the freshest meats, vegetables and exotic spices along the way. Then, back in her kitchen, Kelis joins forces with her mom to prepare the main course - Pernil, a traditional Puerto Rican roasted pork. Kelis also gets help from her sister with Cornbread with Candied Ginger. In addition, Kelis whips up Carrot and Yam Soufflé, Chorizo Stuffing with Dates, and Zesty Whole Grain Mac n' Cheese as sweet and savory sides to accompany the meal. Kelis saves the best for last with her favorite dessert, Coconut Custard Pie, and she amazes her guests with a surprise that makes them feel right at home.

Finally there is nothing like home for the holidays, and at Rev Run's house it is a week-long celebration filled with food, fun and family on Rev Run's Happy Holidays, premiering on Sunday, December 14th at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT on Cooking Channel. As is tradition every year, Justine rings in the holidays with a family brunch, and she is preparing her Breakfast Before Casserole. It would not be the holidays without gingerbread cookies, and the Simmons' put their own spin on the traditional treat - Ninjabread Men. While the kids are on decorating duty, it is Rev's job to get everyone in the spirit by whipping up his Rich and Creamy Hot Cocoa. When feast day finally arrives, the whole family is more than ready to cook and celebrate. Happy hearts and full bellies are just a couple of the ingredients for a successful Simmons' holiday, from Rev's Always on Time Prime Rib to Justine's Cheesy Buttermilk Garlic Mash to Diggy's Colorful Carrots, this holiday meal is bound to go down in history, but it would not be complete without the star ingredient - family.

Food Network and Cooking Channel's holiday special line-up serves up delicious recipes and Christmas cheer to keep spirits merry and bright all season long. Tune-in to FoodNetwork.com and CookingChannelTV.com for photos, recipes and more.
