by in Recipes, June 16th, 2011

vegetable panini
You won’t need a panini press to make this grilled sandwich, which showcases some of Giada’s classic pairings: mozzarella, pesto and grilled vegetables. Eggplant, zucchini and red onions are cooked until tender and piled high on baguettes that have been slathered with basil pesto and topped with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes.

Make this a complete summer meal by serving gazpacho or a salad like Guy’s Grilled Romaine With Blue Cheese-Bacon Vinaigrette alongside.

sandra lee
Sandra Lee has agreed to a deal with Hyperion and the Disney Interactive Media Group that would include the publication of five new books. In addition to the books, Sandra will produce a series of 15 online videos expected to launch this fall, around the same time as the publication of her lifestyle book and the first of two cookbooks. Later, she’ll publish two food-themed novels with recipes.

Guy Fieri opened up his garage in a recent interview with AutoTrader.com.  His favorite, a ’71 Chevelle, was purchased by saving up money he placed in a boot in his closet for two and a half years — he’s vowed to never sell it. His current garage is filled with numerous cars — find out what they are and what car he’s still looking for on AutoTrader.com.

grilled pizza with sausage, peppers and onions
Move over delivery, there’s a new pizza joint in town and it’s coming straight from your grill. While it will take you longer to make this pizza than it would to order takeout, it’s healthier and worth the effort. This recipe is also great for getting the entire family involved in dinner — young children can roll out the dough while an adult is at the grill.

Bobby tops his grilled pizza with hot sausages, sweet peppers and red onions. Tone it down for the little ones by using sweet Italian sausage or create a make-your-own pizza bar with multiple toppings to choose from.

Food Network Star Insider Tips from Melissa d’Arabian

by in Shows, June 9th, 2011

Melissa d’Arabian
Melissa d’Arabian, host of the popular budget-friendly series Ten Dollar Dinners, knows exactly how it feels to be a contestant on Food Network Star — she beat out thousands of hopefuls to claim the “Star” title in Season 5. Now, as she watches from her couch, she’s offering the new cast ten tips, or pieces of advice, on how to survive the season:

45 is the new 20.
Forty-five minutes sounds like an eternity to cook one dish, right? And it is — at home. Forget what you think you know about time. Forty-five minutes is nothing.

Do not make major predictions your first day.
It’s just plain old bad luck. It tempts the gods of great television just too much.

Head over to Food Network’s Star blog now to read Melissa’s top tips.
