Indulge in classic recipes with your favorite chefs this weekend. Kick things off with Ree Drummond on The Pioneer Woman as she has her friends decide what she should serve in her deli. The showdown pits typical deli eats, like her Basic Chicken Salad with grapes, against other versions, like her Curried Chicken Salad with raisins. Then, on an all-new Farmhouse Rules, Nancy Fuller cooks her grandkids’ favorite meal — breakfast for dinner — complete with Gooey Cinnamon Buns with Cream Cheese Icing and Sweet Potato Hash with Fried Eggs.
On Sunday, don’t miss a night full of Food Network Stars, starting with a new Guy’s Grocery Games, in which past Food Network Star champions return to battle it out in Flavortown Market for up to $20,000 for the charity of their choice. Then, on a new Food Network Star, this season’s finalists pair up to shoot a promo for a show called Family Road Trip! But to win this challenge they need to impress Giada, Bobby and the guest judges, Food Network Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Maile Carpenter and actress Ali Larter, with both their promo and their dishes.

In true tournament fashion, Alton Brown went big for tonight’s Time Warp premiere, showcasing all-new sabotages worthy of the 1950s theme. After Chef Gentile, the winner of Heat 1, contended with a whopping four challenges, four that Alton thought were “all the interesting sabotages of the day,” Alton took a tour of those challenges with judge Simon Majumdar during the After-Show to relive the competitor’s eviliciousness escapades.

Here’s the thing about burgers: Even when they’re dressed down, with just a juicy patty and a slice of gooey cheese, they’re pretty satisfying. Extremely satisfying, actually. But when you dress them up with bold ingredients, the flavors and textures are intensified, making them all the more craveworthy. On this morning’s brand-new episode of The Kitchen, the cast showed off two new takes on burgers — one classic and the other creative. Both of them will keep you coming back for more all summer long. See below how the co-hosts did it.

The Food Network Star Season 11 winner, Eddie Jackson, co-hosts the new series Kids BBQ Championship, Mondays at 8|7c, with lifestyle expert Camila Alves. On the show, eight talented young grill masters compete for the chance to win $20,000. Eddie and Camila not only lead the kids through the various grilling and barbecuing challenges, but also judge their dishes with the help of a third grilling-expert guest judge.
When it comes to barbecue, Eddie has a wealth of knowledge. FN Dish recently caught up with the star to chat about the show and his background in barbecue. Eddie also recalls some of the fun experiences he and Camila had in coaching the young competitors, and he offers a few tips for grilling season.

Memorial Day is right around the corner, and if you’re looking for some recipes to add to your weekend BBQ, look no further than your favorite Food Network chefs. On Saturday morning, join Ree Drummond on the ranch as she whips up her Spicy Jerk Chicken and crunchy Corn Salad. Then head over to the Hudson Valley, where Eddie Jackson joins Nancy Fuller in the kitchen, making some grilled favorites like Sweet and Sticky BBQ Beef Ribs and Fried Ice Cream with Cereal Crust.
On Sunday morning Tia Mowry and her dad, Tim, are grilling up some of their Hawaiian favorites: juicy short ribs, orange-scented rice and more. Then Tiffani Thiessen is planning a Texas-style birthday bash for her husband, Brady, complete with fall-off-the-bone Brisket and savory baked beans. After that, Bobby Flay is cooking a “buzz”-worthy brunch of honey-centric recipes like Chocolate Chip-Pistachio Pancakes with Salted Honey Caramel Syrup and crisp Honey-Bourbon Glazed Bacon.

Chopped is moving to the Beringer Vineyards in the Napa Valley for the new season of Grill Masters. Premiering Tuesday, July 5 at 10|9c, this special five-part tournament, hosted by Ted Allen, features 16 of the nation’s best grilling experts competing for a chance to walk away with the title of champion and a truckload of money. Each episode starts with four chefs battling through three cooking rounds, with recurring Chopped judges and special guest judges deciding the fate of each. The winner from each heat wins $10,000 and earns a spot in the finale, where only one will walk away the grand champion with $50,000 more.
Next Monday marks the unofficial start of summer with the Memorial Day holiday, and with that comes three months of lazy afternoons by the pool, late-day sunsets and, perhaps most importantly, grilling anything and everything. Since Cutthroat Kitchen isn’t about to let a season pass without celebrating it in the most-evilicious way possible (remember Mother’s Day? Christmas?), Alton Brown hosted an all-grilling episode tonight, complete with three rounds of smoky cook-offs. While he doled out sabotage after themed sabotage to the chefs, Alton and the judge of the day, Simon Majumdar, took in the competition in seasonal fashion with what else but the coolest aprons available. Alton stuck with a single getup, which dubbed him “The Grillfather,” while Simon showed off three aprons, including the hot-bod torso he donned for the After-Show. “He’s looking good,” Alton said while introducing Simon, “in his all-American apron with an actual photocopy of his actual body.” While that second part may not be completely true, Simon was quick to joke that his chiseled chest was sizzling.
