For the first time on Chopped, professionals and amateur cooks will go head-to-head at the end of the five-part Ultimate Champions tournament. But they’ve all competed on Chopped before. They’ve tasted what it feels like to win, and they’re hungry for more. In tonight’s fourth round, four celebrities from the world of television, music and sports battled to determine which one would move on to the grand finale, where there’s a chance to win the largest prize in the show’s history: $50,000, with a brand-new car to top it all off. FN Dish has the exclusive interview with the winner from Part 4.
Nothing says fall like the crunch of a good apple. Sure, kids love eating ‘em fresh out of the fridge, but here are 10 simple ways for your brood to help cook — and eat — their way through apple season, enjoying every bite.
1. Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp (pictured above): If this is your kids’ first crisp, you can’t go wrong with Ina Garten’s classic take. Kids can sprinkle the topping on with their fingers.
2. Healthy Apple Spice Quick Bread: Make one loaf for breakfast and snacks, and a second to freeze for later. Kids can shred apples and grease the pan.
Borrowing inspiration from a classic Italian combo sub, this almost effortless calzone packs not just one but three different meats. It’s easily prepared with some store-bought pizza dough, and it has an ingredient list that requires virtually no advance prep. This weeknight warrior scales nicely, making it a great fix for feeding an army; it also excels as leftover lunch the next day.
This past week on The Great Food Truck Race, the rookies rolled into St. Louis, where they’d soon learn a lesson or two about food truck ownership. In a Speed Bump challenge Tyler had them earn their seed money by selling the city’s specialty, toasted ravioli. After that, the trucks got back to selling their normal menus, but before they knew it, Tyler visited the trucks to test their food. Finding their quality lacking, he instituted a Truck Stop cooking challenge, whose winner would double their till. At the end of the two days a frontrunner was sent home, learning that it doesn’t pay to mess with quality.
Whether you’re looking for the local specialty or just want a sweet fix, St. Louis has a little bit of everything, including comfort food, international specialties, made-from-scratch doughnuts and more.
It’s time to pack the kids up for school again, and that means making mounds of school lunches. But PB&J sandwiches can take you only so far. For a new twist on a classic ingredient that kids and adults love, look no further than the Peanut Butter series on FN Dish.
Over the last several weeks, we’ve been giving you inventive recipes that let you incorporate peanut butter into all your meals — from breakfast to dessert — for the entire family, and now it’s time for the final (and best) part of the day: dessert. And don’t forget to check out our breakfast, lunch and dinner posts.

What better way to bid farewell to summer than with a bowl of delicious ice cream? Here, rich, creamy macadamia nuts are blended with fresh blackberries to create an irresistible marriage of texture and flavor. Most dairy-free ice creams are made w...
It’s impossible to go wrong with fondue. You can go the savory route and dunk chunks of bread into a bowl of thick and velvety melted cheese, or you can opt for the sweet variation and dip strawberries, marshmallows and other goodies into a warm pot of chocolate. Both options are deliciously decadent, but which is better?
Food Network Magazine wants to know which side you’re on: chocolate or cheese. Vote in the poll below and tell FN Dish what type of fondue you prefer.
I don’t believe food should be contained in the cafeteria. I think it should be brought to class — in the form of notebooks! So I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite fruit-, sugar- and treat-inspired notebooks (like the ones above from Palas Pandiras) that’ll make you (or your kids) hungry for knowledge.
Although summer’s juicy tomatoes and sweet peaches are nearly a thing of a past, fall brings with it an abundance of produce too: Welcome to the season of crisp apples, golden sweet potatoes and a myriad of squash, like kohlrabi, acorn and butternut. A bell-shaped squash with a thick skin, butternut squash shines in dishes from creamy soups and simple salads to rich purees and hearty casseroles, like Food Network Magazine’s Gnocchi with Squash and Kale (pictured above).
The beauty of this one-pan supper is that it starts with store-bought potato gnocchi, which means that the dish can be on the table in as few as 35 minutes. After sauteing the squash in a buttery mixture with garlic and sage, add the kale and gnocchi, then top with a blanket of nutty Parmesan cheese and finish in the broiler for a cheesy, comforting family-friendly dinner ideal for busy weeknights. Since this pan moves from the stove to the broiler, be sure to start with an oven-safe pan.
