Full Episode Guide
  • The Phillips family has an annual tradition of making and exchanging delicious and practical gift baskets and this year, Damaris is making simple, yet impressive, pantry staples to give as gifts and uses them in recipes to feed her crew. First, her homemade Bourbon Vanilla Extract serves as the base for decadent Spoon Fudge. Her homemade Stake Sauce is the perfect stuff to pour over Prime Rib Burgers and Kale Caesar Salad is topped with Cornbread Croutons.

  • Kentucky's magical elixir is a key ingredient in this holiday-inspired dinner, that Damaris creates to help Buddy give his wife an extra special holiday meal. Roasted Chicken With Pear Butter and Bourbon Glaze is an easy and perfect centerpiece. Her gratin-inspired Cauliflower Curry and Brown Rice Casserole elevates the holiday feast which is topped off with a decadently satisfying Bourbon Pecan Cake.

  • Damaris helps her kitchen-challenged Uncle John tackle the traditional Phillips spring lamb feast. Taking the intimidation out of preparing a large roast, Damaris demonstrates an easy cooking method and simply layers fresh flavors to bring out the best qualities of Roasted Lamb and Mint Chimichurri. Feta Roasted New Potatoes and Togarashi Glazed Carrots round out this crowd-pleasing menu that shows a fresh take on traditional Southern fare.

  • For Father's Day, Damaris Phillips invites her mother and grandfather over for a special brunch, where Grampy's predilection for sweets rules the menu: On tap are Cinnamon Roll Biscuits with Sweet Tea Caramel, a beautiful Five-Cup Ambrosia and easy Breakfast Sausage.

  • On Thursdays, Damaris goes out swing dancing. This week, she invites her boyfriend to join her for a light and easy weeknight dinner of Fried Olive and Lentil Salad, Acorn Squash Stuffed With Sausage, Barley and Goat Cheese and "Dance the Night Away" Energy bars to enliven their spirits before the dance and keep them light on their feet.
