Today on Home & Family Thursday, January 2, 2014

Cristina's First Anniversary
Today marks one year since Cristina returned as host of "Home & Family." Happy First Anniversary, Cristina! She takes a moment to graciously thank co-host Mark, executive producer Woody Fraser, the entire crew, and all the family members for welcoming her back home 12 months ago.

Kate Gosselin
It's Mark & Cristina Plus Kate today on "Home & Family!" The mother of multiples tells us the positive impact her former reality show had on her family and how close the kids grew to their crew. To this day, her eight still watch DVDs of the series to reflect on fun times. Kate explains how the family adjusted to fame and weathered a very public divorce. Later, she gets her hands dirty in the kitchen to make meatloaf. It's a struggle to cook every night for such a large family, so Kate also shares a few leftover ideas.
