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.

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.

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!
