By: Caitlyn Callegari

This weekend is the perfect time to start prepping for your bountiful Thanksgiving feast. Let The Pioneer Woman, The Kitchen, Guy's Grocery Games and Holiday Baking Championship inspire you to spice up your holiday spread. The Pioneer Woman is cooking up a variety of scrumptious pies, The Kitchen is reinvigorating harvest recipes, Thanksgiving meals are put to the test on GGG and Holiday Baking Championship gets right to the sweet stuff.

When you've got your fill of feast finds, be sure to catch Trisha's Southern Kitchen, Guy's Big Bite, Southern at Heart, Farmhouse Rules and Cutthroat Kitchen. They may not be all about Thanksgiving just yet, but they're certainly worth watching and salivating over. You'll be introduced to tasty recipes like Trisha Yearwood's Chicken Saltimbocca, Guy Fieri's Lamb Kofta Burger, Damaris Phillips' White Mac 'n' Cheese, and Nancy Fuller's Warm and Cheesy Artichoke Dip with Toast.
