4 Sweet Ways with Carrots — Chopped Junior

by in Recipes, Shows, May 12th, 2016

carrotsOn this week’s episode of Chopped Junior there were definitely some challenging secret ingredients in the contestant’s bright yellow mystery baskets. But ultimately it wasn’t the beef tongue, the quail or even the outrageous tie-dyed cake that really tripped up our young chefs — the trickiest ingredient turned out to be a simple carrot!

Glazing carrots is a super-easy technique, but I think we can all agree that when there’s a clock ticking down and a $10,000 prize on the line, it’s easy to burn those little root vegetables — and that’s exactly what happened to two contestants.

One Recipe, Two Meals: Cheesy Calzones

by in Family, Recipes, May 10th, 2016

One Recipe, Two Meals: Cheesy CalzonesWhen was the last time you had a calzone? Like, the ’90s.

Welllll, I’ve come up with a super-easy and crazy-DELEESH version for your littles, with tiny pepperoni and loads of cheese. And for you? A lovely vegetarian version (with loads of cheese, natch).

If the thought of making calzones makes you nervous, check this out: Just hit up a local pizzeria and buy some dough from them! If you can, ask for 8-ounce balls of dough and you’re good as gold. Dough gold. Or something.

After that, you’ll simply saute some veggies while the oven preheats, then roll out each dough ball; layer each one with sauce, cheese, pepperoni for them and veggies for you; fold over the flap; crimp, crimp; brush with an egg wash and BOOM. You let the oven work its magic and you’re enjoying insanely yummy pockets of mouth bliss 30 minutes later.

Tedious prep work and outrageously long cook times get an F in our gradebook. But before you throw in the towel and dial the caterer, take a look at our tips for a relaxed and inexpensive DIY graduation party. Whether your scholar just completed college or kindergarten, our tasty menu of easy, make-ahead dishes will score top marks with any audience.

Make-Ahead Mains

Burgers and hot dogs have long dominated the late-spring and summer entertaining scene, but this season we’re all in favor of make-your-own taco stations. Food Network Kitchen’s Sweet-and-Spicy Chicken and Steak Taco Bar is ideal for a casual open house. As new guests arrive, warm more tortillas and replenish your bowls of Monterey Jack, lime wedges and corn salsa. Don’t grill all of the meat at once: The chipotle-marinated chicken and steak cooks up in just 10 minutes on the grill, so leave some of it marinating in the fridge for guests who arrive later.
