What to Watch: Have One Last Halloween Hurrah with Food Network This Weekend

By: Caitlyn Callegari

Get all of your Halloween programming in before the big day. It may be hard to believe, but the hallowed event is almost here, and before you run out and scramble to get that last-minute costume, you should tune in to Food Network for some spooky inspiration. And you definitely don't want to miss out on the season finale of Halloween Wars. All of that ghoulish competition has culminated in this. Be sure to catch The Pioneer Woman, The Kitchen, Rewrapped, Sandwich King, Giada at Home, Southern at Heart and Farmhouse Rules, too, as they celebrate Halloween and its sweet fare.

If you're looking for something savory rather than the saccharine cuisine of Halloween, watch Trisha's Southern Kitchen for recipes like Chicken-Fried Steak, Spinach with Bacon and Onions, and Baked Macaroni and Cheese. Guy's Big Bite also offers a balanced meal of Crispy Cornflake Chicken Sliders and Mexican Mac 'n' Cheese. Also, Cutthroat Kitchen and Guy’s Grocery Games are the perfect spine-tingling way to end a weekend of thrills.

Ree is dishing out delectable desserts like Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls, Baklava, White Chocolate Shortbread Cookies and Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries.
