Full Episode Guide
  • Damaris Phillips invites her family over for a grilling feast potluck. She starts with a spicy Banana Pepper and Jalapeno Compote that's slathered over a beautiful Grilled Pork Tenderloin. With the grill lit up, she uses it to bring smoky, caramelized goodness to her Grilled Succotash Pasta Salad, and even cherries and oranges are grilled for her out-of-this-world Grilled Old Fashioned Cocktail.

  • When it's raining during the day of Damaris Phillips's egg hunt, she brings the festivities inside. No matter the weather, her impressive meal of Country Ham and Scalloped Potatoes with an iceberg wedge salad is sure to please the crowd. And while the kids are munching on their chocolate bunnies, the adults can enjoy Damaris's coconut bourbon chocolates.

  • In order to help her bridesmaids pick their dresses, Damaris Phillips has arranged for a stylist friend to pick up a trunk load of dresses for the girls to decide between. For this trunk show, Damaris prepares fork-free party snacks including Fresh Watermelon and Feta Skewers, Baked Fingerlings with Sour Cream Butter Topped with Catfish Caviar and Champagne Berry Chiffon.

  • Inspired by a margarita at one of her favorite bars, Damaris invites the mixologist back to the kitchen with Mexican Food on the brain. On the menu: easy-to-make spicy, homemade "Fauxrizo" Taco Filling, Coconut Lime Black Beans and to finish the plate off, a simple, aromatic Jicama and Cilantro Creme Slaw. Damaris's fiery menu is cooled down with a Blackberry and Sage "Heart of Darkness" Margarita.

  • It's a lovely afternoon for tea with the girls and Damaris creates a menu of feminine and elegant dishes with tons of flavor. Instead of the traditional cucumber sandwiches, she changes it up with delicious Borage Benedictine and Bacon Sandwiches. Then, she takes Southern potato salad to the next level with her Beet and Potato Salad With Blue Cheese Dressing and Dill. To finish off a perfect tea party, Damaris serves Saffron Flower Madeleines.
