“I decided to do this book because I love summer,” Katie Lee recently told FN Dish of her brand-new upcoming publication, Endless Summer Cookbook. “That’s my favorite time of year, and summer food is my favorite kind of food to cook. It’s also the season that I entertain the most.” For Katie, the more than 100 recipes in Endless Summer are all about celebrating the season’s bounty of freshness and the plethora of local ingredients near her home in the Hamptons. “Before I started writing the book, I wanted to be able to capture summer,” she explained, “so my photographer came over, and I went to the farm stand and we bought a bunch of stuff and came home and cooked. And then I wrote the recipes to go along with the food that I cooked.” Ranging from sweet treats like Light Lemony Berry Cheesecake to hearty grilled fare like BLT Ranch Burgers, plus refreshing sips like Frozen Blueberry Daiquiris, these dishes and drinks are ideal for relaxed warm-weather entertaining at home, no matter where your home is. “I’m so excited to share these recipes with people,” Katie said.
You can preorder your copy of Endless Summer Cookbook from the Food Network Store, but FN Dish is giving five lucky, randomly selected readers the chance to win a copy with a signed bookplate for free. All you have to do to be entered to win is leave a comment below with your favorite recipe from Katie (see all of Katie’s recipes here).

In the words of Geoffrey Zakarian, “It’s five o’clock somewhere!” As the unofficial mixologist among The Kitchen co-hosts, he’s shaken up his share of cocktails during the show’s regular cocktail segment, pouring the cast elegant sippers and casual, party-ready drinks alike with a collection of signature barware.
Just in time for seasonal entertaining, FN Dish is giving fans a chance to add to their own home bars an engraved cocktail shaker reading “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere.” Whether you use it to make classic martinis, fresh-fruit margaritas or next-level smashes, look to this workhorse of a tool to create chilled, well-mixed drinks ideal for parties.
On Guy’s Grocery Games, Guy Fieri loves to test the chefs by making them go through a number of obstacles, like suddenly having their main ingredients go missing from the market’s shelves or having them stick to a meager budget. In the No Carts Allowed game, Guy makes sure the chefs can’t use their grocery carts. Instead they must resort to using just their arms and hands, their aprons, or, if he’s feeling generous, a tote bag to carry all the ingredients they gather. With the Grocery Games logo embossed on durable cotton twill, this bag makes grocery shopping a breeze thanks to its long 11-inch handles, thick material and roomy interior.
You can buy your own tote bag here, or you can enter to win one for free from FN Dish. We’re giving 10 lucky, randomly selected readers each a Guy’s Grocery Games tote bag, and all you have to do to enter to win is leave a comment below telling us what your favorite game on the show is and why. For run-downs of the games, see here for Season 1 and here for Season 2.
