Each month, thousands of Food Network Magazine readers submit clever names for the back page’s Name This Dish contest. Previous dishes include an egg tart (winning name: “Breakfast in Bread”), crab-stuffed mushrooms (“Surf ‘N Earth”) and even an over-the-top breakfast (“Scotch on the Rocks”). In the May 2012 issue, we asked you to dream up names for bite-sized cakes (pictured above). Some of our favorites were:

Here are some sno-cones you can prepare long before your party starts — that won’t melt before your guests arrive: They’re cupcakes! To make one, just sprinkle red, yellow and blue sanding sugar on a frosted cupcake. For added effect, take the cupcake out of its paper, drop it into a 4-ounce Styrofoam cup and add a wooden spoon.

Summer cooking is all about choosing the lightest, brightest, most in-season ingredients and letting them shine in simple recipes. Whether you shop at a farmers’ market or neighborhood grocery store, look for the freshest summer produce and let that determine what you make for dinner. Check out a few of Food Network’s favorite summer salads below and visit our Summer Produce Guide for more fresh ideas.
With only a handful of ingredients, Food Network Kitchens’ Fresh Corn Tomato Salad (pictured above) is a refreshing no-cook dish that can be made in only 30 minutes. Because the cherry tomatoes and husked corn are eaten raw, they’ll pop with deliciously juicy sweetness and that just-ripened taste. Add chunks of cool mozzarella cheese for an indulgent bite and dress with a simple vinaigrette and lots of torn basil before serving.

Aarti Sequeira won Food Network Star season 6 and expanded her popular blog into a cooking show, Aarti Party (catch it on Food Network, Sundays at 7:30am/6:30c). As a Star veteran watching from her couch at home, Aarti shares her insider’s take on what went down each week.
Well, didn’t Martie redeem herself this week?
I was kind of amazed at how many of you wrote, with some vitriol, that sweet Martie didn’t deserve to stay last week. Well, she certainly proved herself this week, cooking a rather elaborate multi-step dish (Southern-style arancini, which I would never have attempted to make for 150 people) and bowling the judges over with her warmth and humor.
Just one thing though, Martie, my love: That moniker you’re using? Martie Party? It’s kinda taken. Ahem!

We often refer to Pat LaFrieda, Jr. as the “Magician of Meat,” but we seem to forget that Pat LaFrieda, Jr. comes from a meat empire — a family-run meat empire. Pat Jr. runs a third-generation wholesale meat purveyor business in New Jersey with his dad, Pat Sr., and while we see the dynamic duo take viewers on a high-”steaks” ride with a side of humor on Meat Men, we wanted to know just how much the two agreed on meat.
We asked father and son the same questions to see how different (or similar) their answers would be, including who’s the better grill master in the family.
What’s the best cut of pork in your opinion?
Pat Jr.: Pork butt
Pat Sr.: Rib chops
If you had to choose between having beef, pork, veal or chicken as your last meal what would you pick?
Pat Jr.: Boneless loin lamb chops
Pat Sr.: Shake ‘N Bake pork chops with applesauce (laughing out loud) — because they’re good.

This week marks the midpoint of the competition and the remaining 10 finalists are under more pressure than ever as they look toward the second half of the season. On Sunday night’s episode, the newest Iron Chef, Geoffrey Zakarian, surprises the c...
