Spring might be right around the corner, but there’s still time to enjoy your favorite comfort food indulgences before winter ends. Start off Saturday morning with Ree Drummond as she celebrates all four seasons by cooking one dish from each, including a wintry Red Wine Pot Roast and a Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese Salad for spring. Then, Trisha Yearwood is showing her friend Glenda all the ways you can cook with a cast-iron skillet, including Country Ham Carbonara and strawberry skillet cake. Next, the co-hosts of The Kitchen are revealing their favorite Southern comforts, like Katie Lee’s Fried Chicken and Sunny Anderson’s Easy Baked Sweet Corn. After that, while her family is away, Valerie Bertinelli is cooking up the foods she loves the most, including Pasta alle Vongole and Challah Bread Pudding with Limoncello.

On Sunday morning Guy Fieri is cooking a stick-to-your-bones meal complete with Three-Citrus Chicken Breast with Compound Butter and some Scratch-Made Fries with Chorizo Poutine on Guy’s Big Bite. After that it’s a brand-new Southern at Heart, and Damaris Phillips is putting her own spin on the classics with Roasted Vegetable and Truffle Mac ‘n’ Cheese and Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf. Then, Bobby Flay is sharing his recipes for Cinnamon Bun Pancakes with Maple Cream Cheese Glaze and Churros French Toast with White Chocolate-Orange Ganache. And on Sunday night, don’t miss a breakfast, lunch and dinner challenge on Guy’s Grocery Games, and see guest professor Duff Goldman on a new All-Star Academy. To close out the night, William Shatner appears as a guest judge on a special man cave episode of Cutthroat Kitchen.

Ree is giving the low-down on how her life and food change on the ranch during the different seasons. She makes a Red Wine Pot Roast for the icy winter months, then Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese Salad for spring. High summer means Grilled Chicken Tacos with Strawberry Salsa, and for fall, nothing beats Carrot and Squash Curry Soup.

Trisha makes a hearty breakfast for her friend Glenda in her cherished cast-iron pan: Hash Browns with Cheesy Eggs and Avocado.

While her husband and son are away, Valerie treats herself to a day of comfort and ease with all the foods she loves most. There's a Blue Cheese-Stuffed Olives Martini, Pasta alle Vongole, and Roasted Asparagus and Mushrooms with Chile-Lime Salt.

Sunday 9:30a|8:30c

On the rare night when Damaris finds herself home alone with no plans, she loves to indulge with her favorite foods. She spends a bit of "me time" making Roasted Vegetable and Truffle Mac 'n' Cheese, Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf, and Plum and Sage Mojitos!

Chefs are cooking every meal on the menu: breakfast, lunch and dinner! First they must make a sweet-and-savory breakfast from items found in the store's clearance carts. Then, a family lunch is complicated by a red light special. Finally, chefs spin the Budget Food Wheel to determine how much they can spend on their high-stakes steakhouse dinner.

Duff serves as guest professor for a set of art-inspired challenges.

Sunday 9|8c

In a special man cave episode judged by William Shatner, three chefs have to make their bacon dishes while sitting on a couch.
