What to Watch: Food-Filled Days With Ree, Ina and Giada, Cupcake Wars in Paradise and More

If your idea of a perfect day involves food at just about every turn, then you're in for a treat this weekend on Food Network. On Saturday watch new episodes of The Pioneer Woman, Barefoot Contessa and Giada at Home, all of which involve a day filled with comfort foods and sweet treats. Then it's competition time on Sunday, with a Hawaii-themed episode of Cupcake Wars (pictured above) and an episode of Worst Cooks in America that has the Boot Campers facing their biggest fear — serving food to others. Finish Sunday evening with a life-changing transformation on Restaurant: Impossible.

It's calf-working day on the Drummond Ranch. Ree is busy whipping up lunch for her hungry kids and cowboys. It's going to be a hearty feast of comfort food with Pan Fried Pork Chops With Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole and The Best Green Beans Ever. Dessert is Ree's fabulous Peach Cobbler.
