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.

Do you daydream about pasta? Do visions of angel hair dance in your head? How about fusilli and farfalle, linguine and lasagna, rigatoni and rotini, tortellini and tagliatelle? Yet, even as you muse about masses of macaroni, manicotti and mostaccioli, if you are like many Americans you may actually be eating less pasta than you used to.

Cereal and toast. Fluffy scrambled eggs. Even a stack of buttery flapjacks. These go-to breakfast dishes are comforting and classic, of course. But when it comes to the ultimate in morning-meal indulgence, look no further than biscuits and gravy. The Pioneer Woman’s Sausage Gravy, this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week, calls for only a few ingredients, including your choice of breakfast sausage — either hot or mild. Ree Drummond serves this fan-favorite recipe atop warm biscuits for a hearty, decadent breakfast.

Ketchup fans, we feel you. There’s indeed a time and a place for that classic condiments. But this isn’t it — at least not right now. On this morning’s brand-new episode of The Kitchen, the cast shared a duo of hot-dog makeovers just in time for summer, which is (hopefully) on its way. While Jeff Mauro opted for a tried-and-true hot-dog base and dressed-up toppings, Geoffrey Zakarian went so far as to swap out the traditional dog in favor of a hearty Polish kielbasa. Read on below to see how they do it.
