by in Shows, October 17th, 2014

Hungry Games
The closer we creep toward Halloween, the more we seem to have dessert on the brain — especially if this weekend’s programming is any indication. It’s a dessert dream on Food Network with Rewrapped, Halloween Wars and Hungry Games. On Rewrapped, contestants spice up a favorite childhood snack, Hostess Sno Balls. On Halloween Wars the teams tackle the age-old mummies versus werewolves rivalry with sweets, and on a special sneak peek of Hungry Games it’s an ice cream wonderland.

If those shows have satisfied your sweet tooth, be sure to tune in to The Pioneer Woman, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, Farmhouse Rules, Guy’s Grocery Games and Cutthroat Kitchen. You can find savory recipes for dishes such as Chipotle Salsa, Slow-Cooker Stout Beef Stew and German Potato Salad. And on Guy’s Grocery Games and Cutthroat Kitchen, it’s two nail-biting journeys to see which contestants will overcome all the obstacles Guy Fieri and Alton Brown throw their way.

by in View All Posts, October 22nd, 2010
Anne Thornton's personal faves? Ice cream and anything salty-sweet.

Pastry chef Anne Thornton’s ridiculously delicious Salted Caramel Banana Pudding Pie (and fun, bubbly personality) caught the attention of many a guest — including a few top Food Network execs — at last year’s SWEET event at the NYC Wine & Food Festival. Now, one year later, Anne has joined the FN family with her very own show for the sweets-obsessed: Dessert First.

It’s a dream come true for Anne, who left a corporate career to pursue her passion for food. “I always thought, I’m going to go to culinary school when I retire,” she says. “Then I realized, you don’t have to wait until you retire to do what you like!”
