Start the weekend out by making three lunches with Ree Drummond featuring dishes like chicken wings, potato salad and an apple and celery slaw. Then, the co-hosts on The Kitchen share their best recipes for quick and easy weeknight dinners. And Valerie Bertinelli is cooking for her friends’ dinner party. After that, head down to Savannah, Georgia for the premiere of Ms. Polly’s Cakes where Ms. Polly and her kids are baking a replica of a large home and a large peacock cake.
On Sunday evening, Guy Fieri welcomes four pork-loving chefs to Flavortown Market for Triple G’s second Big Bacon Battle and on Worst Cooks, the final two recruits face off in their final challenge, preparing a three-course, restaurant-quality meal for a panel of culinary experts.

People tend to have strong opinions on what separates a good brownie from a damn good brownie. Is it a soft, gooey center? A dash of espresso powder — to really make the chocolate sing? Maybe it’s the density of the corner pieces, prized for their thick and chocolatey crust. Sometimes our opinions change depending on our mood, and when it comes to selecting the right recipe for a particular moment, timing and setting are everything. So, whether you’re rushing to assemble dessert for your best friend’s dinner party or just sitting around at home with chocolate on your mind, you’re guaranteed to find a brownie that suits your needs somewhere on this shortlist.
The On-the-Go Brownies
Looking for a dessert that can survive a couple of hours in your lunch bag? Many will emerge from their packaging dry and crumbly by afternoon, but Trisha Yearwood’s marbled creation certainly won’t. The toothsome top layer of cream cheese pairs perfectly with the dense, fudgy base.

Get this: A new coffee spot in Brooklyn (where else?) is banking that some people will shell out a full $18 for its premium bespoke brew.
Brooklyn Extraction Lab’s sticker-shock-inducing java is, Eater recently pointed out, the “most expensive coffee in the U.S.” It nudges into second place a $16 cup sold by a high-end San Francisco coffee purveyor, Blue Bottle, Gothamist notes. And that in turn unseated the $15 pour-over at Berkeley, California-based coffee joint Equator, which we’re sure unseated some $14 cup of coffee … somewhere.

We all know what it’s like to fall off the wagon with breakfast. First, you’re grabbing a handful of cereal as you run out the door. Then you’re telling yourself “at least the milk in my coffee has some protein.” And before you know it, the days on which you totally skip breakfast are really adding up. But a non-boring breakfast doesn’t have to be difficult (or full of sugar). Try these fun, nutritious and flavorful ideas to get back on track with your morning eating routine.
Breakfast Cookies (above)
We know — cookies for breakfast sounds like something a five-year-old might request. But you can satisfy your inner child and your responsible, grown-up self with Ellie Kreiger’s morning treat. These cookies boast a ton of good-for-you ingredients, like whole grains, walnuts and even a vegetable: Baby food carrot puree (!), which Ellie says adds sweetness and helps keep the cookies moist.

Literally translated to “Go! Kitchen!” this simple yet powerful phrase began each and every battle in Iron Chef America’s Kitchen Stadium, signaling the start of a no-holds-barred quest to determine “whose cuisine will reign supreme.” Now, for the first time since 2013, chefs will be returning to the world of Iron Chef — but this time they’ll be going for the gauntlet.

Do you have a stunning kitchen like Food Network Magazine readers Julia and Chris Marcum? Food Network Magazine is looking for another amazing kitchen to feature in the upcoming readers’ choice issue. The Marcum’s concrete countertops and two Frigidaire ranges (yes, plural) in their home are spectacular, and Food Network Magazine editors have a feeling that even more fans across the states are cooking in some equally awesome spaces.

How do you say genius in Italian? Because that may be just the word for the one restaurant owner who came up with an inspired method of dealing with kids’ behavior at his upscale eatery in Padua, Italy. He simply rewards the parents — when their kids behave well, that is.

I love cooking for my family. Mostly fresh. Usually from scratch. Sometimes ethnic. But as a mom of four small kids (seriously, the oldest one is 7), my energy is limited. Plus, it’s a bit of a betting game at this stage. Will the kids appreciate all of my effort when I set their food on the table? Yes, everyone’s clear on the expectations: Try everything and be a good sport about it. But will they actually enjoy it? In order to keep the cooking requirements and expectations in check, I take advantage of a few shortcuts for getting meals on the table quickly, easily and deliciously. Check them all out below.
Jarred Items: Olives and Sundried Tomatoes
Ounce for ounce, sundried tomatoes may have the most flavor of any single ingredient in your pantry. It takes a mere handful of ingredients to pull off Giada De Laurentiis’ Penne with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto (pictured above), which boasts a stellar 5-star rating.
Green olives create an almost instant sauce for either pork or chicken, giving either one a signature tang in seconds. Two of my favorites are Pork Tenderloin with So Many Olives and Chicken Mirabella: Chicken with Prunes & Olives.

You could file this one under “Ideas long overdue.” However, we’re certainty that almost all of us have had this particular idea before — and have acted on it whenever given the opportunity. It’s just that we never had a word for it.
Now, thanks to Finland, we have a word for “the feeling when you are going to get drunk home alone in your underwear — with no intention of going out,” and it is Kalsarikännit.
Though it may be beautiful and glittery, expensive jewelry may seem like an unnecessary splurge. If you’re going to blow big bucks on something, you may think to yourself, perhaps it should be something that makes a difference in the world.
Now you can have your gorgeous jewelry and … OK, maybe not eat it, too, but at least know your money is helping kids eat healthy. New York-based jewelry designer and philanthropist Joan Hornig — whose jewelry is sold at luxury department stores (Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus) and boutiques around the country and who routinely allocates a cut of the sales of her collections to a range of charities — has introduced a new line of beautiful bobbles to benefit the Recipe for Success Foundation, a Houston-based non-profit organization that works to promote healthy eating in children.
