While preparing a healthy veggie omelette breakfast for her kids, Bal Arneson comes up with a creative way to breathe new life into some tired greens and wilted herbs. During breakfast, Bal's daughter, Anoop, reminds her that maybe now is the time to finally start that vegetable and herb garden she always talks about. Bal agrees and puts a plan in motion. All it takes is one garden expert, a lamb chop lunch, a landscaping crew and Bal at the helm of a backhoe to get it done. To celebrate the harvest of her beautiful new garden Bal throws an amazing garden party dinner using the fresh produce from her garden.

Bal Arneson hires her friend Kevin to build a custom set of spice shelves in her kitchen. She's worried Kevin won't finish in time for a dinner party she's hosting. In an effort to speed up the construction she makes Kevin a spice-infused steak for lunch that will hopefully light a fire under his butt. Looking to escape the "construction zone," Bal surprises her kids Aaron and Anoop with a trip to a local park. The kids have fun, but Anoop was hoping for something a little more adventurous. Bal cooks up a plan to give Anoop the adventure and excitement she craves and takes her bungee jumping! But Bal's bright idea may turn out to be a little too adventurous when both Bal and Anoop have some serious reservations about taking the leap.

Things get a little heated over a Blueberry Whole Wheat Pancake breakfast when Anoop gives Bal a hard time about her old run-down car. Bal's mechanic proposes a plan to enter the car in the local demolition derby. Bal thinks it's a crazy idea, but agrees! While the mechanics get her car ready for the derby, Bal cooks them up some Cheeseburgers with Mushrooms and Onions and Cumin-Spiced Grilled Corn on the Cob. The night before the derby, Bal is really nervous about driving. A dinner of Sable Fish seasoned with garam masala will hopefully give her the strength to get behind the wheel and smash some cars!

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So Bal Arneson makes a power breakfast of stuffed French Toast with a fresh cherry salsa to prepare for an active day. Over breakfast, Bal tells her kids she's going indoor rock climbing. Anoop gives her mom a hard time telling her "indoor" rock climbing isn't that hard. Bal throws down the gauntlet, and tells Anoop if she thinks it's so easy then she should come along and give it a try. Anoop accepts the challenge! The indoor climbing goes so well that their instructor feels they're good enough to give outdoor climbing a shot. The duo confidently agree, but fear starts to grow once the decision settles in. To give them strength and courage for the outdoor climb, Bal makes a spice infused grilled chicken breast with risotto. Before they leave for the adventure, Bal whips up some steak wraps for lunch on top of the mountain. Now there's only one thing left to do -- get to the summit!

If Jim hadn't become a chef, he likely would have run away to the circus. He loves circuses and freak shows and was even the front man for a clown rock band.

At Unicorn in Seattle, Jim revels in their circus-like decor and heads to the kitchen to cook carnival-inspired dishes including fancy corndogs and a stuffed "fire-eater burger." At Straw in San Francisco, Jim experiences their elevated spin on fair favorites: fried chicken and waffle Monte Cristo, the Ringmaster donut burger and fresh watermelon cotton candy. And at barbecue and juke joint White Tiger Gourmet in Athens, Ga., Jim cooks some fantastic barbecue fit for a singing clown: the Barberella, a barbecue and grilled mozzarella sandwich with White Tiger sauce and the Clown Car tofu tacos.
