Though the meaning of barbecue varies from region to region and even from state to state, there’s no denying that all things meaty, saucy and grilled are some of the best bites of the season. In celebration of the over-the-top eats featured on last night’s episode of Guilty Pleasures, Food Network asked you, the fans, to tell us about your top plates of barbecue. And in true superfan fashion, you delivered in droves, not just commenting but also showing photos of piled-high plates of sticky ribs, grill-marked chicken and everything in between. When it comes to true ‘cue, there’s no denying you all know how to indulge. Keep scrolling below to see more of FN Dish’s favorite selections.

Imagine that your most-decadent, cheesy pasta dreams are given a bit of a healthy makeover. In this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week, Food Network Kitchen makes a healthier ricotta alternative by combining low-fat cottage cheese with part-skim mozzarella and Parmesan. The end result: a delicious baked penne that packs a similar punch in flavor, comfort and texture to ricotta. Make an easy tomato sauce — flavored with basil, garlic and a hint of fennel — then add frozen spinach to the cheese mixture to get a helping of veggies. Top this all-in-one meal with additional cheese before baking to ensure a bubbly, golden crust.

There’s nothing quite like a scoop — or two or three — of ice cream to cool you down during the steamy months of summer. On yesterday’s all-new episode of Guilty Pleasures, Curtis Stone showed off the over-the-top ice cream sundae he grabs in Santa Monica, Calif., a chocolate- and caramel-laced beauty topped off with chopped brownies and slivered almonds for welcome crunch.
Recently Food Network asked you to tell us about your best-ever summer desserts, and in true superfan fashion, you delivered in droves, not just writing back but also showing photos of sweet-tooth-satisfying treats that range from cool treats like Curtis’ to a cupcake-inspired take on a campfire classic. When it comes to all thing sugar, frosting and sprinkles, there’s no denying you all know how to indulge. Keep scrolling below to see of FN Dish’s favorite selections.
While eggs can be enjoyed in several forms, there’s nothing quite like cutting into a hot, runny yolk. In this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week, Jeff Mauro puts a twist on traditional eggs Benedict — he nixes the usually necessary cutlery and transforms this brunch-time favorite into a decadent sandwich. Despite its hybrid name, eggs Benedict purists shouldn’t be alarmed. This dish features all of the classic ingredients: runny eggs, smoky ham and a velvety hollandaise sauce, which Jeff makes extra simple. Instead of tempering the mixture of egg yolks and butter, he combines the ingredients in a blender.

A buttery, crisp bun, a blanket of gooey, melty cheese and a hunk of hot meat that oozes juice — there’s nothing quite like an over-the-top burger, especially for Food Network chefs Robert Irvine and Alex Guarnaschelli, who just recently revealed on Guilty Pleasures that some of their most-sinful food cravings include a mac and cheese-topped burger and one served up with sweet griddled onions.
Recently Food Network asked fans to tell us about their burger bites, and in true superfan fashion, you delivered in droves, not just writing back but also showing photos of some of the most-epic between-the-bun creations we’ve seen so far this season. When it comes to layering meat, cheese and veggies — and more meat and more cheese — on top of bread, you all are surely up for the challenge.

This wow-worthy dessert, a dome-shaped dessert featuring a pound cake base and a duo of ice creams, is surprisingly simple to make; all you need is a deep bowl and a few hours of chill time.

While traditional Tater Tots are filled with (what else?) taters and laden in a greasy fried coating, this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week swaps out potatoes in favor of a lighter filling: cauliflower. By pureeing the vegetable with sauteed onions and a binding mixture, you can form it into two-bite tots. The beauty of this made-over recipe is that even though these snacks are baked, not fried, they don’t lose any of that craveworthy crunch, thanks to a quick dredge in rice cereal before cooking.

While soup is surely a warming winter comfort food, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy a hearty bowl in the spring and summer months too. When it comes to #notsaddesklunches, make-and-take meals like reheatable soups are a go-to option, and this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week from Ree Drummond is no exception. Laced with cream and finished with fresh, fragrant herbs, this big-batch soup will surely fill you up. Plus, since Ree opts for cans of tomatoes instead of off-the-vine beauties, you don’t have to wait until tomato season to make her simple recipe.
