What to Watch: Mexican Food with a Southern Twist, Bobby's Barbecue, and Stars on the Silver Screen

This weekend, Food Network's new episodes cover a little bit of everything, including Mexican night, movie night, packed lunches to go, barbecuing, muffins, cupcakes and more.

Start your Saturday morning with recipe ideas for a packed lunch to go, as Ree prepares sandwiches and salads for a group meeting. Then Trisha gets to cooking a Latin-style menu with her workout instructors. Later, Giada shares her favorite muffin recipe with various mix-in ideas.

On Sunday morning, Jamie Deen is preparing dishes for taco night with a Southern twist. Then Guy is cooking a special lobster dish. On Sandwich King, Jeff is remaking the sloppy joe to be healthier for his son Lorenzo. And Bobby is barbecuing bison short ribs and grilling fish tacos.

Then in the evening, come back for some competition, starting with a toy-themed episode of Cupcake Wars. Then it's off to the movies on Food Network Star, where teams of the remaining finalists must cook and create movie trailers. And finally, on Restaurant: Impossible, Robert must help revitalize a Greek diner.

Ree's putting together a boxed lunch for a meeting at an old building the family is renovating.
