Full Episode Guide
  • Melissa's down-home menu starts with Chicken and Biscuits, tender chicken thighs simmered in a rich bacon gravy, served over super-quick Sour Cream Garlic Biscuits. On the side, Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad livens up the plate with fresh flavor, crunchy texture, and creamy Dijon dressing.

  • Melissa d'Arabian has a delicious steak dinner that's quick enough for a weeknight, yet impressive enough for company. Her Sliced Sirloin Steak is the center of the menu, with Poblano Pesto to spoon over the top, and Sweet Potato Hash to serve alongside. Non-Alcoholic Sangria is a refreshing way to toast this satisfying meal.

  • Melissa d'Arabian takes grilling beyond steaks and burgers with a light fish menu. Her Citrus Tilapia "En Papillote" features delicate tilapia filets grilled in foil packets, served on a bed of baby spinach and topped with her Grilled Summer Relish. For dessert, Grilled Pound Cake gets served with warm grilled peaches and an orange-scented Cream Cheese Glaze.

  • Melissa d'Arabian stirs up her Easy Chicken Curry with Vegetables, simmered in a creamy coconut-curry sauce. For pennies more, her Coconut Scented Rice rounds out the meal and soaks up the delicious sauce. Finally, Mom's Banana Bread is moist, tender and studded with chocolate chips, making it a favorite for breakfast, dessert and every snack in between.
