Start the weekend out by making three lunches with Ree Drummond featuring dishes like chicken wings, potato salad and an apple and celery slaw. Then, the co-hosts on The Kitchen share their best recipes for quick and easy weeknight dinners. And Valerie Bertinelli is cooking for her friends’ dinner party. After that, head down to Savannah, Georgia for the premiere of Ms. Polly’s Cakes where Ms. Polly and her kids are baking a replica of a large home and a large peacock cake.

On Sunday evening, Guy Fieri welcomes four pork-loving chefs to Flavortown Market for Triple G’s second Big Bacon Battle and on Worst Cooks, the final two recruits face off in their final challenge, preparing a three-course, restaurant-quality meal for a panel of culinary experts.

Guy’s Grocery Games: Big Bacon Battle 2 – Sunday, March. 5 at 8|7c

It's GGG's second BBB: Big Bacon Battle. Four pork-loving chefs cook up sizzling bacon dishes that will land one of them in hog heaven with up to $20,000! First, they must make the ultimate bacon dish, despite a nine-item shopping limit. Then, chefs prepare an elevated bacon dish using the not-so sweet items on Guy Fieri's mandatory Grocery List. Finally, Guy uses refrigerator magnets to generate the name of their final bacon creation: smoky chocolate BBQ.
