Michael Scott, former manager at The Office, once ordered from Chili’s an Awesome Blossom, with “extra awesome.” If you ask us, Food Network Magazine’s Almost-Famous Bloomin’ Onion (pictured above) is just as awesome as Michael’s. Though he later orders Baby Back Ribs, a few of Sunny Anderson’s sizzling Steak Fajitas, another Chili’s classic, may be a less messy option at this black-tie affair.

Celebrate Tina Fey’s Lead Actress nomination for her role as Liz Lemon in 30 Rock with Ina’s recipe for Lemon Pasta With Roasted Shrimp from Food Network Magazine.  Still working on your night cheese like Liz? Giada’s gooey Grilled Cheese With Spinach and Pancetta is a go-to favorite, but try not to sing while you’re eating it.

No party is complete without drinks, especially on Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire. Raise a glass to your favorite shows with our Fresh Mint Martini from Food Network Magazine (pictured above). This light and refreshing sipper is a twist on the classic version, while Ina’s Whiskey Sours are similar to other Prohibition Cocktails. Serve these along with Easy Toast Toppers, Giada’s Italian Fried Olives and more Best Supporting Snacks for simple, eat-with-your-hands appetizers.

Still hungry? While the stars head off to their after parties, sink your teeth into Food Network Magazine’s Red-Carpet Cookies. Ready in just minutes, these sweet endings are the ideal finale to any winning show.
