Toast to the warm summer months with Food Network this weekend and get all-new recipes from your favorite chefs. On Saturday, catch up with Trisha Yearwood as she hosts an impromptu get-together for her singer-songwriter friend Sunny Sweeney. She makes delicious finger foods like Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and Pulled Chicken Sandwiches with Spicy Slaw. The celebration continues on The Kitchen, where Bobby and Jamie Deen join the cast for fun recipes like Grilled Butterflied BBQ Chicken and Watermelon Margarita with Espelette Salt.

Kick off your Sunday morning with Daphne Brogdon for her backyard summer party, where her menu features Chorizo Sliders with Spicy Avocado Spread and Cool As a Cucumber Soup Shooters. Next, Damaris Phillips throws a fancy white party where she makes Roasted Chicken, Brie and Peach Pizza, White Summer Sangria and Orange Blossom Bundt Cake that she drizzles with a decadent White Chocolate Ganache. On Sunday night, prepare for three hours of competition, starting with Triple G, where Battle America returns to Flavortown. Then, watch as Food Network Star finalists pair up and collaborate on a dish for first-time daters on Match. Finally, it’s a circus-themed episode on Cutthroat Kitchen. Clown cars, a ring of fire and three-wheeling are all fair game for these daring chefs!

Trisha Yearwood’s friend singer-songwriter Sunny Sweeney is in town, so Trisha decides to throw an impromptu get-together. Her summer menu stars Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, Pulled Chicken and Spicy Slaw, Cucumber Bites, and a creamy and tangy Grape Salad. Sunny joins Trisha in the kitchen, and then the two sing a duet for their friend Mandy.

Daphne Brogdon turns her backyard into a summer oasis after being inspired by a recent charity event on the beach. She’s serving up a menu fit for a summertime party, including Chorizo Sliders with Spicy Avocado Spread and Chula Vista Fish Tacos with Pickled Onions and Carlsbad Cream. Plus, she makes a chilled cucumber soup that she serves in shot glasses.

Damaris Phillips throws a fancy white party to celebrate summer and she whips up spectacular party food out of pale ingredients. Her menu stars pizza that is topped with roasted chicken, Brie cheese, and a homemade peach and moonshine jam. She also makes White Summer Sangria with fresh raspberries, peaches and cantaloupe, and, to end the party on a bright note, an Orange Blossom Bundt Cake with White Chocolate Ganache.

Four chefs proudly represent their regions in the return of a Triple G favorite, Battle America. The competitors must make a regional feast without meat, because the even aisles — including the meat department — are off-limits. Next, the remaining three chefs are tasked with making an all-American burger without any of the classic ingredients. Don't miss the final showdown, where the chefs make a presidential dinner featuring a sweet Red Light Special: jelly beans.

In the Mentor Challenge, finalists must think outside the box when preparing a dish for Giada and Bobby, because their favorite ingredients are switched with those of another finalist. Then, they arrive at Patina Restaurant in downtown Los Angeles, where they pair up and collaborate on a dish to present to first-time daters from Match. Anne Burrell and the master chef of Patina Restaurant Group, Joachim Splichal, join the mentors at the judging table.

Sunday 9|8c

Don't miss all-new challenges tonight, which begin on a funny note when chefs make corn dogs in a clown car. Then, a ring of fire drives another chef nuts, and finally, a competitor goes three-wheeling while making a funnel cake.
