Getting back into a routine after the holidays is always difficult, but your favorite chefs have new breakfasts, dinners and snacks to help get your grocery list made in no time. On Saturday, Ree Drummond starts things off with a hearty meal of slow-cooked ribs and ice cream cake to serve while the family is hauling hay. Next, Trisha Yearwood cooks Memphis style, including barbecue pork nachos and an Elvis-inspired pancake sandwich. After that, The Kitchen is serving better breakfasts like baked eggs with salami and Anne Burrell’s crepes. Finally, Valerie Bertinelli is rewarding her husband after a day of chores with his favorite Spicy Coconut Shrimp, Prosciutto Bruschetta and butterscotch cake.

On Sunday, Guy Fieri is fusing Chicago and California with dishes like beef kebabs and Fried Provolone with Italian Salsa. Then, Giada De Laurentiis is hosting a cocktail party with braised short rib crostini, oysters with caviar and Raspberry-Cherry Chocolate Poppers. After that, Bobby Flay is making a brunch centered on great bread with banana bread waffles and Southwestern cornbread strata. And on Sunday night, the Triple D tournament on Grocery Games continues as four chefs compete for the second spot in the finale. Then, Boot Camp continues on Worst Cooks with a game of “Family Food,” and Alton Brown’s got a new set of sabotages on Cutthroat Kitchen.

It's high summer and Ree’s family has got a long, sweltering afternoon of hauling hay at her brother-in-law's house, so she's making dinner for both families with Sticky Spicy Slow-Cooked Ribs and a cheesy Hominy Casserole. On the side is Ladd's grandmother's legendary Broccoli Salad, then Ree's Ice Cream Layer Cake for dessert.

Anne Burrell Bio

With her trademark spiky blond hair and pumped-up personality, Anne Burrell has worked at some of the top restaurants in New York and studied the culinary landscape and traditions of Italy. Anne makes restaurant dishes accessible and reveals concise, easy-to-master techniques for the at-home cook on her Food Network series Secrets of a Restaurant Chef. On her show Chef Wanted, Anne helps top restaurateurs find candidates with the right experience and creativity to become executive chefs. On Worst Cooks in America, Anne joins Tyler Florence in mentoring teams of hopeless home cooks from around the country, putting them through culinary boot camp. In 2011, Anne published her first cookbook, Cook Like a Rock Star, which gives home cooks the confidence and support to be rock stars in their own kitchens. Her cookbook earned a place on the New York Times Best Seller list. In 2013, Anne released her second cookbook, Own Your Kitchen. Growing up in upstate New York, Anne developed a passion for food and cooking at an early age. After obtaining an English and communications degree from Canisius College in Buffalo, she pursued her interest in the restaurant business by enrolling in the Culinary Institute of America. Following graduation, she spent a year in Italy attending the Italian Culinary Institute for Foreigners while working at La Taverna del Lupo in Umbria and La Bottega del' 30, a Michelin one-star restaurant in Tuscany. During this year, Anne grew to truly appreciate and understand the philosophy of Italian cuisine and culture, which left a lasting impact on her culinary point of view. Upon her arrival in New York City, Anne was hired as a sous chef at Felidia, working with Lidia Bastianich. She then served as a chef at Savoy, where she cooked over an open wood fire and created flavorful menus inspired by Mediterranean countries. Here Anne developed her personal culinary style: rustic food made with pure and simple ingredients with intense flavors. Anne then took the opportunity to spread her culinary knowledge and passion as a teacher at the Institute of Culinary Education. After three years, Anne went back to the restaurant business, serving as the executive chef at Lumi. As the executive chef at New York hot spot Centro Vinoteca from its opening in July 2007 through September 2008, Anne served up her "creative-authentic" Italian menu of small plates (piccolini), antipasti, pastas and main courses accented by her trademark bold, pure flavors.
