What to Watch: The Kitchen’s Cheesiest Show Ever and Rainbow Desserts on Spring Baking Championship

This weekend, don't miss The Kitchen's cheesiest show ever, plus rainbow desserts on Spring Baking Championship.
The Kitchen Co-Hosts with Cheese

While the weather warms up outside, your favorite chefs are warming up some of their favorite indulgences. First up: cheese! On Saturday morning, Ree Drummond is hosting a dinner for the ladies who have helped her open a mercantile store in her building. She’s serving up jalapeno cheese bread alongside a cheesy take on cauliflower soup. After that, the co-hosts of The Kitchen are celebrating cheese with a 10-cheese mac and cheese as well as a nacho volcano from Food Network Star Justin Warner.

On Sunday morning, Nancy Fuller is transforming the leftovers in her fridge with a kitchen-sink frittata and leftover meatball soup. Then, Bobby Flay is cooking a Southwestern brunch that includes blue corn pancakes and a new take on the mimosa. And on Sunday night, it’s the final battle for a spot in Guy’s Grocery Games’ Redemption Tournament, followed by a rainbow dessert challenge on Spring Baking Championship and a new episode of Cutthroat Kitchen.

Ree is opening a mercantile store at her building in town, so she's throwing an on-site dinner for her girlfriends who've helped her stock it. She kicks things off with a gorgeous Quinoa Salad with Buttery Roast Vegetables, then serves a comforting pot of Cheesy Cauliflower Soup with chunks of gooey Jalapeno Cheese Bread. For dessert, there are decadent Salted Caramel Cheesecake Squares.

To top it all off, there's Geoffrey Zakarian's Mouse Trap cocktail, plus a cheese-pull challenge!
