You must admit, Brussels sprouts are cute. They resemble baby cabbages and their flavor is reminiscent of their popular cousin, broccoli. But they’re often snubbed. Why? My guess is, Brussels sprout-haters have, at some point, eaten them when the...
This week, the remaining four food trucks thought they were cruising straight into Nashville, but Tyler took them beyond the city and into Pottsville, Tenn., where they met on a farm owned by country musicians Joey and Rory Feek. With a grand prize of $50,000 on the line and the chance to keep their truck, each team tries to pull out all their tricks to stay in the game, but ultimately one truck must go each week. Every Sunday night, FN Dish will bring you exclusive exit interviews with the latest Food Truck contestants to get the boot.
Seoul Sausage found themselves in the bottom this week for the first time, but their sales were high enough to keep them in the competition. Momma’s Grizzly Grub, however, wasn’t as lucky and after keeping up in the race for five long weeks, Angela, Adriane and Tiffany turned in their keys to Tyler.
This week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week is a one-pot crowd-pleaser that will soon become a staple recipe in your home: Food Network Magazine‘s Skillet Rosemary Chicken. Roast chicken, mushrooms and potatoes come together in one skillet for a hearty cool-weather supper. Rosemary sprigs and charred lemons bring rustic flavor to the dish.

Twice a month we’re giving readers a chance to ask Food Network Kitchens’ advice about an issue they’re having with a dish. They can’t reformulate a recipe for you, but they’re happy to help improve it.
Question: I’m just not wine-smart — I don’t know a dry wine from a non-dry one. It sure would be helpful if the chefs would say what kind of wine they’re using in a recipe, not brand specific, but if it’s a Chardonnay or a Merlot. And when they speak of using a finishing oil on their food, what does that mean? – Karen Shelton
Answer: Don’t stress about what kind of wine to cook with. It’s pretty straightforward: If it tastes good in the glass, it’ll taste good in the dish. As a basic rule of thumb, think white wines for delicate flavors like shellfish or most vegetables. Use red wines for robust flavors in red sauces and braised meats.

Come Sunday night, The Great Food Truck Race shifts into high gear as the final four food trucks cruise into Nashville, Tenn., more determined and confident than ever. There are only three weeks left in the competition, and Pop-A-Waffle, Nonna’s Kitchenette, Seoul Sausage and Momma’s Grizzly Grub must use everything they’ve learned so far to outsell their rival trucks if they want to make it out of Music City.
In the sneak-peek shot above from this weekend’s brand-new episode, it seems as though Nonna’s Kitchenette has lost some of its fire since their Truck Stop win last week. They’re no longer celebrating Randy the Razorback or reveling in their first-place earnings; instead, the New Jersey gals are sporting noticeably bleak stares, as they fixate on what’s immediately in front of them. On what are the ladies focused so intently? Are their blank expressions the result of seeing their next challenge or another crazy mystery ingredient?
Before you tune in this Sunday at 9pm/8c to find out what’s going on, we’re challenging you, Food Truck fans, to write your best captions (tastefully appropriate, please) for this moment in the comments below.

School is officially in session, and just as kids may stomp their feet in protest all the way to the bus stop, so, too, might moms and dads as they face another daunting year of keeping their little learners full and healthy. As you think of the new school year and wonder how you’ll be able to do it all, look to Food Network’s Back-to-School Headquarters to help you make the grade. Each week in September FN Dish will share can-do weeknight meals, easy lunchbox picks, after-school snack strategies and more from our best collection of recipes and tips.
Earlier this week, Food Network hosted a Facebook chat with our very own Food Network Kitchens on all things back-to-school. Though questions ranged from how to fix healthy lunches to how to get out of a PB&J rut, more than a few of you asked for lunchbox picks for your decidedly picky eaters. So this week’s classroom lesson is all about feeding your fussiest eaters lunches that they’ll gobble up in no time.
The key to packing for picking eaters is variety. No kid — or grownup — wants to open his or her brown paper bag to find yet another turkey and cheese sandwich, cut in the same four squares, nestled next to another apple and juice box. If sandwiches are just about the only thing your little one will eat, try giving them made-over versions of their favorites in order to keep lunch interesting. Food Network Magazine’s Ham Pinwheels (pictured above) are five-minute sandwiches that feature deli ham and cream cheese rolled into a soft tortilla. Cut into easy-to-eat pinwheels, these wraps may offer the simple change in presentation that your child needs to be excited about new foods.
