Exemplary father of 6, Rev Run finds his true joy in family, good friends, and great food. But with 4 of their 6 kiddos off on their own, Rev and Justine have a near empty nest and long for the days of a full table. Determined to get the gang back together for weekly Sunday dinners, they will use simple, heartfelt recipes to lure the kids (and some special guests) to the table.

Sunday by Sunday, Rev and Justine will show that the perfect family meal isn't just about the food, it's about who is sitting at the table to share it.

Sunday Suppers have become a tradition in the Simmons household and Rev is yearning to pass down his own family traditions to his daughter Miley.

Rev and Justine realize that at this Thanksgiving, surrounded by happy, healthy and well-fed family, they're all winners.
Rev's son Diggy is a man on the move, but if there is one thing that keeps him coming home it's his craving for his favorite comfort food, Chicken Bolognese.

The holidays at the Simmons' house means a week full of food and family. As is tradition, Justine kicks off the holidays with a family brunch, and this time she's making her Breakfast Before casserole. After brunch, what would a feast be without gingerbread men cookies? But in Rev's house they are Ninjabread Men, to be exact. The kids are on decorating duty, so it's Rev's job to get everyone in the spirit by whipping up his Rich and Creamy Hot Cocoa. When feast day finally arrives, the whole family is more than ready to cook and celebrate. From Rev's Always on Time Prime Rib, to Justine's Cheesy Buttermilk Garlic Mash, to Diggy's Colorful Carrots, this holiday feast is bound to be one for the books. Happy hearts and full bellies are just a couple of the ingredients for a successful Simmons holiday -- it wouldn't be complete without the star ingredient ... family.
This week, Justine's parents are coming for supper so the Simmons are inspired by Gramps' childhood in Trinidad to create a classic Caribbean meal. They whip up hearty beef patties, fiery Jamaican jerk chicken, and Gramps will bring the island vibe by teaching the family how to cook his famous rice and peas. On this Sunday supper, every little bite is going to be alright.
This week, Justine wants to recreate traditional English high tea, from flaky scones with strawberry jam to her favorite finger sandwiches - cucumber with herb butter, and smoked salmon with crème fraiche.

To ensure that Perry is satisfied, the guys chip in and make their own finger sandwich - Parmesan meatball sliders!
Lately, Rev Run has been dreaming of feasting in a tropical paradise, but his wife Justine wants to enjoy time with the family at home. To satisfy them both, she hatches a plan to transform dinner into a Sunday Supper stay-cation by designing an at-home Hawaiian luau. Justine makes a Green Papaya Salad, and Rev's favorite banana leaf steamed pork. Since no luau would be complete without dessert, Justine finishes it off with a tropical banana-guava pie.
Rev Run's manager Michael Lehman claims to be the grill master and his right hand man Perry is the self-proclaimed fry king. Rev decides to put their skills to test by having them cook their signature dishes, Michael's juicy beef tenderloin and Perry's crunchy fish fry for this Sunday supper. The Reverend also puts his best dish forward by making irresistible deep-fried hush puppies. With three chefs battling it out, everyone at the table is bound to be a winner.
Over the years Justine and Rev have watched four children grow up and move out, so nothing makes them happier than when one of them returns for supper. With Diggy coming home for dinner, they design a menu to satisfy his healthy lifestyle: a perfectly seared glazed salmon with a refreshing mango salsa, parmesan roasted broccoli, and Justine's naturally sweet baked apples with homemade honey Greek yogurt. With so many nutritious and delicious dishes, this meal is sure to please the whole family.
Rev Run and his family decide to make some Bowling Alley snacks with a healthy twist for this Sunday Supper.
